Chevrolet Trax vs. Honda HR-V

A new kind of vehicle has emerged for drivers who like the style and functionality of a crossover SUV but who don’t need quite as much space. It’s the subcompact crossover SUV segment, and the 2016 Chevrolet Trax is back for a second year, offering strong fuel economy, lots of equipment, enough room to stretch out, and available all-wheel drive. It faces competition from the 2016 Honda HR-V, and while there are certainly some similarities between the two, the Chevrolet model comes out on top in a number of areas. Find out how, and then test-drive the 2016 Chevrolet Trax at your Bloomingdale-area Chevrolet dealer in Glendale Heights, IL.

Performance and Fuel Economy

When it comes to performance, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax and the 2016 Honda HR-V offer available all-wheel drive. However, the Chevrolet Trax offers extra torque and slightly better standard fuel economy. It comes fitted with a turbocharged 1.4L inline-four that delivers a confident 148 lb-ft of torque. It also gets an EPA-estimated 34 mpg highway and 26 mpg city.

Meanwhile, the 2016 Honda HR-V’s standard 1.8L four-cylinder engine only produces 127 lb-ft of torque. Its base fuel economy also comes in just under the Trax at 34 mpg highway and 25 mpg city.

However, the 2016 Chevrolet Trax also gets a generous roadside assistance plan that lasts for five years or 60,000 miles, while the Honda HR-V only gets a roadside assistance plan that lasts for three years or 36,000 miles.
