Powertrains and Efficiency

Fuel economy is probably one of your top priorities if you’re shopping in this segment. See how they stack up:

  • The Chevrolet Trax uses a 138 hp 1.4L four-cylinder engine that helps the Trax get up to 25 mpg city/33 mpg highway based on EPA estimates with front-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission*.
  • The Honda HR-V comes with a more powerful 1.8L four-cylinder that makes 141 hp and earns up to 28 mpg city/34 mpg highway in EPA estimates with continuously variable transmission and front-wheel drive*.

Interior Versatility

The Honda also offers more cargo space thanks to the unique Magic Seat. This allows the front-wheel drive HR-V to carry up to 58.8 cubic feet with the rear Magic Seat folded down, and up to 24.3 cubic feet of space with all seats in place. The Chevy Trax falls well short 48.4 cubic feet total and 18.7 cubic feet with the seats in place.
