Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda HR-V than in the Nissan Kicks. The Nissan Kicks will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda HR-V.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda HR-V as you will with the Nissan Kicks, 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 Honda HR-V is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Kicks. 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 Honda HR-V and the Nissan Kicks have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda HR-V is a little wider than the Nissan Kicks, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Honda HR-V takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Kicks.

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