2019 Honda HR-V vs. Its Competition

2019 Honda HR-V
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Subcompact crossover SUVs are hardly penalty boxes.

One of our favorites is the segment’s newcomer, the Hyundai Kona.

It’s priced well and drips with personality.

The Toyota C-HR has a great ride quality, but its tight interior and agonizingly slow acceleration make it hard to recommend.

Boxy looks tie the Jeep Renegade into its ‘80s Cherokee great-grandpa, and it can be a formidable off-roader.

The Subaru Crosstrek is just as plucky and feels a class above its rivals inside.

We can’t say the same about the Ford Ecosport, a dated design with concerning crash-test results.
