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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Trax or the Honda HR-V, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Trax carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Honda HR-V.

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
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Chevrolet Trax and 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.
