2020 Honda HR-V vs. Its Competition

2020 Honda HR-V
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

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 Ford Ecosport has a dated design and concerning crash-test results.

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

Quick Specs
The 2020 Honda HR-V oozes with practicality, though gas mileage and safety equipment have room to improve.
The 2020 Ford Ecosport is not particularly good value, not particularly efficient, and not particularly good.
The 2020 Hyundai Kona is an eyeful, but has nearly everything crossover buyers want in a city-friendly package.
The 2020 Jeep Renegade is a compact crossover SUV that’s full of character and off-road prowess, but it makes many important compromises.
The 2020 Subaru Crosstrek puts safety first, with capability a close second.
The 2020 Toyota C-HR’s updated styling is less polarizing, and it now includes both Apple and Android smartphone support.
