The HR-V still looks mod­ern even be­side newer of­fer­ings, but it’s the cabin that Gen finds a tad too plain when compared with the CR-V’s in­te­rior. The lower ride height also makes this sub­com­pact cross­over look more like a hatch­back rather than an SUV, and Gen finds the size rather small. When you’re out on the high­way mix­ing it up with trucks, you will want a ve­hi­cle that feels sub­stan­tially sturdy. It’s re­ally the safety as­pect that has Gen con­cerned: The CR-V packs more safety equip­ment, and is also big­ger and taller, of­fer­ing a more com­mand­ing view of the road ahead.

PROs

great price; stylish ex­te­rior; com­pact size per­fect for city driv­ing

CONs

lower ride height and seat­ing po­si­tion; limited cargo space; no diesel option
