Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda HR-V than in the Chevrolet Trax, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Trax and the Honda HR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Trax as you will with the Honda HR-V, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Chevrolet Trax will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda HR-V. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Chevrolet Trax and the Honda HR-V have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Trax is about the same width as the Honda HR-V. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Trax takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda HR-V.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Chevrolet Trax transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Honda HR-V.

Handling
The Chevrolet Trax has a smaller turning radius than the Honda HR-V, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Chevrolet Trax has a little more horsepower than the Honda HR-V.

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

Warranty
The Chevrolet Trax comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda HR-V.
