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.
