Check out this head-to-head match-up with the 2017 Toyota RAV4 to learn how the HR-V reigns supreme in the marketplace, and see for yourself how impressive the 2017 HR-V is with a test drive today at Honda of Casper!
The new Honda HR-V features a 1.8L inline-4 engine, and it generates 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. This is less than the 176 horsepower the 2017 Toyota RAV4’s 2.5L 4-cylinder engine reaches — however, the RAV4 is a significantly heavier vehicle. As a result, the RAV4 cannot make much use out of its slight advantage in power. Further, the Toyota lags behind in fuel economy. The HR-V earns an impressive 25 mpg city* and 33 mpg highway*, whereas the RAV4 earns only 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. The 2017 Honda HR-V also features a shorter wheelbase, which allows it to turn more effectively than its competition. Moreover, the torsion-beam rear suspension of the HR-V allows for intuitive and responsive handling.
The new Honda HR-V has already declared victory in performance, but that’s not all that matters to Glenrock area drivers. Check out how the 2017 Honda HR-V seals its victory over the 2017 Toyota RAV4 with its superior suite of available features.

Which SUV is Right for You?
The 2017 Toyota RAV4 offers an enjoyable and competitive experience, but it cannot keep up with the 2017 Honda HR-V. The RAV4 offers slightly more power, but its additional weight means that it doesn’t handle with any more force. Similarly, the HR-V promises more complex handling, tighter turning, and a more impressive selection of interior comforts and features. For these reasons, the 2017 Honda HR-V comes out on top.
