Honda HR-V vs Honda CR-V vs Honda Jazz. 3 Great Honda Vehicles
The HR-V compact crossover distinguishes itself from the CR-V and Jazz with its sporty looks compared with those vehicles’ more right-angle-heavy exterior designs; plus, it’s about 10 inches shorter than the CR-V and 9 inches longer than the Jazz, with a width measuring about 2 inches less than the former and 3 inches more than the latter. Inside, Honda promised the HR-V would provide “unmatched interior spaciousness and cabin versatility.” Only real-world users can decide how well those promises will be fulfilled, but in terms of passenger volume, the HR-V certainly holds its own, measuring 100.1 cubic feet compared with the 2014 CR-V’s 104 and the 2015 Jazz’s 96.
When it comes to cargo space, however, things get considerably more varied. Behind the rear seats, the HR-V has 24.3 cubic feet of room compared with the CR-V’s 37.2 and the Jazz’s 16.6. Meanwhile, with the seats down, maximum cargo space for the HR-V increases nearly 2.5 times to 58.8 cubic feet.
The Jazz’s max cargo space jumps by more than three times to 52.7 cubic feet, while the CR-V’s nearly doubles to 70.9 cubic feet.
