2022 Honda HR-V vs. Its Competition

2022 Honda HR-V
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The Hyundai Kona boasts a broad lineup stretching from budget-priced models to full electric powertrains.

It’s a strong contender.

Look to the Mazda CX-3 for its shapely style and surprising road manners.

The Subaru Crosstrek is spacious and immensely capable, if a little short on refinement.

Nissan’s Kicks is a value play, but it feels priced right given its limited feature set.

This year’s new VW Taos intrigues with its Tiguan-lite dimensions and power.
