When drivers want safety, ride-height and space, they choose vehicles in the crossover SUV class. When they want efficiency, technology features and a bold exterior aesthetic, they choose the subcompact crossover class. In terms of age, if the crossover class is just hitting its teenage years, the subcompact crossover is just learning to walk. These vehicles pull out all the stops to give drivers more comfort and safety than a regular compact vehicle, without sacrificing any of that efficiency and urban proficiency.
Two of the most competitive vehicles in this subcompact crossover class are made by perhaps the two biggest competitors in the automotive market. The Toyota C-HR, and the Honda HR-V. Built on the brilliant Toyota New Global Architecture® (TNGA®) which strives for a continuous improvement production model, the Toyota C-HR provides drivers style and athletics built for city driving. The HR-V, which shares its platform with Honda’s subcompact, Fit, seeks to provide drivers a similar urban experience. Here’s how they measure up:

2018 Toyota HR-V

|Standard||Adaptive Cruise Control||Not Available|
|Standard||Lane-Departure Warning||Not Available|
The 2018 Toyota C-HR provides multiple benefits over the 2018 Honda HR-V. The standard safety features found on the 2018 Toyota C-HR are summed up in its inclusion of Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P). Your 2018 Toyota C-HR is always keeping its “eyes” open working to sense and avoid dangerous situations.
Standard on the 2018 Toyota C-HR are features like Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control (DRCC). DRCC is both a safety and convenience feature. Having to slow down on the freeway is never enjoyable, but it’s even worse when you’re using cruise control one minute and then have to brake because of traffic. DRCC works to maintain a safe following distance by automatically adjusting cruising speed based on the presence of other vehicles.
Toyota Safety Sense™ P also includes Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection (PCS w/PD). This active safety feature continuously scans the road ahead of you to identify other vehicles, objects or pedestrians which may present a collision hazard. Your 2018 Toyota C-HR will alert you to a potential collision and can even apply brakes if you don’t respond in time.
Whether it's drowsiness, reaching or taking your eyes off the road for a second to check a back-seat passenger, lane drifting is dangerous and leads to thousands of accidents a year. Your 2018 Toyota C-HR will help prevent lane-drifting by alerting you when you cross the lane boundary markings. If you don’t respond in time, your C-HR will navigate you safely to the center of the lane again.
Finally, your 2018 Toyota C-HR features Automatic High Beams (AHB). A more obvious feature, AHB will automatically adjust your high beams when another vehicle is detected to avoid creating an unsafe and blinding distraction for him or her.
The 2018 Toyota C-HR is loaded with standard safety, technology and convenience features that the Honda HR-V just doesn’t have. Schedule a test drive today!
The 2018 Toyota C-HR gives drivers a bold, head-turning style to make every trip from A-B a statement. What good is all of the care the designers have put into the compelling exterior, however, if the colors are boring? Good news! They're not.
