View Inventory
The 2016 Honda HR-V and the 2015 Chevrolet Trax are both recently introduced subcompact crossover utility vehicles. While they might be similar on the surface, there are some key differences that make the HR-V the clear choice over the Trax. Find out what those are below and what they will mean for your drive here in Frankfort and Orland Park, IL in our point-by-point comparison.

Powertrains and Efficiency

The 2016 Honda HR-V earns an incredible 28 mpg city/35 mpg highway/31 mpg combined* when equipped with the continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive. The 2016 Chevrolet Trax is only rated at 26 mpg city/34 mpg highway/29 mpg combined based on EPA estimates with two-wheel drive. The HR-V is the clear winner when it comes to fuel economy, but it also makes more power with its 1.8L four-cylinder – the Trax makes 138 hp with its 1.4L turbo four-cylinder while the HR-V makes 141 hp.

Interior Versatility

The 2016 Honda HR-V has space for a maximum of 58.8 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats folded down, or with the rear seats in place, it has space for up to 24.3 cubic feet of luggage. The Chevrolet Trax can only fit up to 48.4 cubic feet when the rear seats are down and up to 18.7 cubic feet behind the rear seats. The difference is similar when you look at interior passenger space. The HR-V has more front and rear legroom, shoulder room, and hip room.

Smart Features and Options

The 2016 Honda HR-V comes packed with smart features that are simply missing in the Trax. The HR-V comes with such features as:

  • Cruise control
  • An MP3 player
  • A CD player
  • Under-seat storage
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Rear disc brakes
  • Alloy wheels

None of those features come standard on the most basic 2016 Chevy Trax.
