2016 Honda CR-Z vs. 2016 Toyota Prius c Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Honda CR-Z and the Toyota Prius c in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-Z as you will with the Toyota Prius c, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Honda CR-Z is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius c. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda CR-Z and the Toyota Prius c have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda CR-Z is much wider than the Toyota Prius c, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda CR-Z, which is slightly longer than the Toyota Prius c.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Honda CR-Z transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Prius c.

Handling
The Honda CR-Z has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Prius c, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda CR-Z has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius c. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the Honda CR-Z seats a lot fewer people than the Toyota Prius c. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Honda CR-Z will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Prius c.

Warranty
The Honda CR-Z comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Prius c.
