2016 Honda HRV vs 2015 Mitsubishi RVR
Honda’s stable of light utility vehicles is quickly growing and getting younger, filled with many of the newest technologies and the hottest design elements. Last year the CRV was refreshed in such a way that it was named the Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year, and now for 2016 a brand-new subcompact crossover is being introduced alongside the all-new, next-generation Honda Pilot. We wanted to take a closer look at this new crossover in comparison to one that has been popular here in Alberta for a while, so we analyzed the 2016 Honda HRV vs 2015 Mitsubishi RVR.
Advantages of the 2016 Honda HRV
As you can tell by taking a gander at the table above, the Honda HRV takes the cake in many different areas of specifications, not the least of which is fuel efficiency. Honda vehicles are fairly well known for their economy, and that shows here as the new subcompact crossover will utilizes a litre less per 100 kilometres through city streets like here in Edmonton, and 0.7 l/100km less on the highway. But fuel efficiency obviously isn’t the only area that the vehicle has a leg up, with increased space as well.
And you might not think of it, but space is almost more important in such small vehicles like subcompact crossovers. They might be tiny, but space is still necessary, and an extra 5 cubic feet of space in the cabin means the difference between happy and angry passengers. Plus, being able to carry nearly an extra 3 cubic feet of space in the cargo hold is a pretty big advantage as well. If you’d like to be one of the first people to get behind the wheel of the new HRV, be sure to schedule a test drive on our website today.
