Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda CR-V Hybrid than in the BMW X1, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW X1 will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X1 as you will with the Honda CR-V Hybrid, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a 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 BMW X1 is somewhat more expensive than the Honda CR-V Hybrid. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X1 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

Dimensions
The BMW X1 is a little narrower than the Honda CR-V Hybrid, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The BMW X1 is slightly shorter than the Honda CR-V Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the BMW X1 does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

Handling
The BMW X1 has the same turning radius as the Honda CR-V Hybrid, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X1 greatly out-muscles the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X1 and the Honda CR-V Hybrid. The BMW X1 has less cargo space than the Honda CR-V Hybrid, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X1 than that of the Honda CR-V Hybrid.
