2018 Chevrolet Trax vs 2018 Honda HR-V in Clinton Township, MI
Pictured left is the 2018 Chevrolet Trax with optional features.
Prized for their exceptional versatility, subcompact crossovers have become increasingly popular throughout the past few years. At Moran Automotive, however, we firmly believe that one vehicle stands out from the rest—the 2018 Chevrolet Trax! With its efficient powertrain and engaging features, the Trax is truly a sight to behold. To provide you with some insight before you make up your mind, we’re comparing this Chevy to the 2018 Honda HR-V in this model overview.
For many motorists, safety is an absolute must. Thankfully, one of these crossovers goes above and beyond to provide optimal coverage from harm. When you’re behind the wheel of the 2018 Trax, you can rely on the available Forward Collision Warning1 to alert you of a potential frontal impact, so you have plenty of time to hit the brakes. Additionally, when you’re attempting to negotiate into a tight space in a busy parking lot, the available Rear Park Assist1 system can lend a hand to make this process much easier. If you’re hoping to access these features in the Honda HR-V you’re out of the luck, as neither of these systems can be found at any trim level. It looks like this round goes to the Chevy!
In addition to safety, you’ll want to be sure that your crossover has the technology to keep every drive fun. Coming standing in the 2018 Chevrolet Trax is a 6-speaker audio system, so you can enjoy your favorite tunes in exceptional clarity. In comparison, the 2018 HR-V only offers four speakers at the base trim, which may result in diminished sound quality. But the Trax doesn’t stop there! You’ll love that this crossover from Chevy comes equipped with a standard 4G LTE Wi-Fi®2 hotspot, enabling up to seven devices to stay connected on the go. With no such feature available in the vehicle from Honda, the Trax is able to build on its lead over its rival.
As we turn our attention to what lies beneath the hoods of these crossovers, we find that the Chevy Trax is once again the superior vehicle. It features a standard 1.4L turbocharged 4-cylinder powertrain that generates a satisfying 148 lb.-ft. of torque for an invigorating drive down I-94. On the other hand, in the Honda HR-V, you’ll only have access to 132 lb.-ft. of torque with its standard 1.8L 4-cylinder system. Moreover, both vehicles offer a fuel rating of 25/33 MPG city/hwy3, so you won’t be sacrificing efficiency for muscle in the Trax. As if that weren’t enough, the Chevy also features a 14-gallon gas tank, which enables you to go longer before filling up, as the HR-V features a smaller 13.2-gallon tank.
In the end, between the 2018 Chevrolet Trax vs 2018 Honda HR-V in Clinton Township, MI, it was no contest. The Trax is your gold medal winner! To experience everything else that this vehicle is capable of, stop into Moran Automotive for a test drive today.
