I think the C-HR blows the HR-V away in aesthetics as well as interior. This video doesn't really tell you much, but it does give nice comparison shots and blurbs of info on features.

The HR-V comes with brake hold and hill-assist though, I didn't see them mention those features for the C-HR.

Brake hold and hill assist I won't be too worried about considering I'll be getting the automatic transmission. I don't go anywhere that has a hill at such a large angle, the transmission wouldn't keep it up by itself.

To me this stuff is borderline useless. Hill assist is probably the best it gets so you don't roll back while moving from a stand still on a hill, but some simple driving practices that you can apply in many other driving situations can be used here. What were we doing before all this tech came out? ....Exactly.

I don't disagree with that at all, but in that sense, majority of any of this new technology is borderline useless. Cars in the 90's, most they had was cruise control. They functioned and worked perfectly fine. The point isn't that we need these things, it just makes life a lot more convenient.

The 2017 Honda HR-V is more pedestrian compared to the Toyota C-HR and I think Honda's product quality has gone down recently if the amount of complaints regarding their new Civic is any indication. Flimsy panels and brakes lights that are detaching. With Toyota, you'll be getting a more exciting design and that Toyota reliability I've come to love.

The new Civic actually did take some heat if I remember correctly and got beat out by the Chevy Cruze. I think the Civic was failing on the reliability side of things. Forgot which award or whatever publication it was for though.

The C-HR, exciting I think is the perfect word for it. That's what we need.

The exterior and interior designs are just night and day when you compare the Honda to the C-HR. But how do they compare performance wise?

Seems like the C-HR is the overall winner aside from its suspension, but you shouldn't really feel that unless there's a lot of pot holes and uneven roads where you're driving. And I like the opaque rear glass in the C-HR, means I don't have to tint it myself. :grin2:

Lol the roads in my area are quite surprising... I don't even know what they use our taxes for..

I won't mind at all though. I'm used to being in cars that are lowered or have tighter suspension installed, I'm all for it.

The suspension systems in cheaper Toyotas aren't exactly the best out there and with a vehicle like this that's one area you have to walk in with lower expectations. Toyota knows this, they know we will still buy although it has some basic suspension, which is very true in my case.

I bet if we were all to vote on how important suspensions systems are to us, it would come out low compared to other things going on here.

In Australia the HR-V is front wheel drive only, so if you want AWD it's a Koba C-HR.

The C-HR is a far more engaging drive.

I guess that makes sense since in European markets they do that sort of thing and Austrailia is more like a European market in terms of the models they get and trims. They probably get better mileage because of it too, AWD isn't always a benefit.

I've always had a warm attitude to Honda HR-V (and still do), especially for their previous models, but after some time spent on research I realized that C-HR offers a longer list of impressive feature, better driving dynamics and unique style. The only advantage I see in HR-V compare to C-HR right now is cargo space, Honda has tons of it.

IMO I think the Toyota CH-R is the most stunning looking SUV on the market. Toyota nailed it with styling and aggressive appearance. Lots of new SUV's have style but not like the CH-R. We are super happy with ours.

I had a 2019 Honda HR-V which I traded in on my 2019 C-HR Limited. Yes, the Honda has more power and more cargo space, but for me it did not make up for the crappy heating/cooling interface (touch screen only and requires you look downwards to operate when driving), the noisy windshield wipers, mediocre sound system, finicky rear tailgate latch, and uncomfortable seats. The only features I miss from it are the sunroof and the way the rear seats fold up to make room for tall items. The C-HR's ride is much more comfortable on a long trip. You can't even get the Honda with all the tech safety features we have at any Honda trim level.
