2017 Toyota C-HR vs 2017 Honda HR-V

Serving Florence, Fort Mitchell, Burlington, Independence, Union KY

The Toyota C-HR is new for 2018, while the Honda HR-V was released last year. Both of these vehicles are compact, light-duty small SUVs. They’re well-suited for city driving and suburban streets. Their small size encourages tight handling and peppy speed when merging onto the highway. They’re both remarkably fuel efficient and have a lot of features, but as you will find, the Toyota C-HR outshines the Honda in performance, safety features and interior options.


The 2018 Toyota C-HR is equipped with a larger 2.0 L engine compared to the Honda HR-V 1.8 L power plant. The slightly larger engine produces more power 144 hp, compared to the Honda’s 141 hp, and the torque is much higher, at 139 lb-ft. at a lower RPM band, 3900rpm, compared to the Honda which produces 127 ft.-lbs. torque at a higher rpm level, 4300. All these numbers translate to quicker throttle response when you need to get moving. Whether driving around Florence, Kentucky or flowing through traffic in nearby Cincinnati, the 2018 C-HR will get you going quicker.

Interior Features

The Toyota C-HR comes standard with AC with climate control, which is not available on the Honda until you get to upper trim levels. Also standard on the Toyota crossover is HD Radio on the base level model, whereas it’s only available on upper trims on the HR-V. The C-HR is also roomier - there’s more legroom for the driver and front passenger, and the vehicle is wider and longer overall, giving everyone a little more shoulder and legroom, which tall drivers will appreciate.


Although the Toyota C-HR has not yet been rated by either the IIHS or NHTSA, it is expected to do well. It has 10 airbags, a hill-start assist, a rearview camera and a suite of safety features that come standard on all Toyota models. These include forward-collision warnings, pedestrian detection, emergency braking, lane-departure warnings, blind spot monitoring, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control.
