Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the GMC Terrain than the Honda CR-V Hybrid. The GMC Terrain offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-V Hybrid, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the GMC Terrain 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). Whether you pick the GMC Terrain or the Honda CR-V Hybrid, 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. Both the GMC Terrain and the Honda CR-V Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The GMC Terrain is about the same width as the Honda CR-V Hybrid. When looking at overall length, the GMC Terrain takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

Handling
The GMC Terrain has a larger turning radius than the Honda CR-V Hybrid, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the GMC Terrain will do just as well as the Honda CR-V Hybrid, since they have about the same towing capacity. The GMC Terrain has a little more horsepower than the Honda CR-V Hybrid.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the GMC Terrain does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than 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 GMC Terrain and the Honda CR-V Hybrid. The GMC Terrain 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
The GMC Terrain comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda CR-V Hybrid.
