Central Illinois drivers deserve automobiles that they can depend on, but those on the lookout for a reliable subcompact crossover will quickly realize that there’s a world of difference between the capabilities of competing models. If you’re like most of our friends and neighbors, you depend on all-wheel drive technology to improve your handling capability and help you make it through the winter snow and ice, but not every subcompact offers this technology!

Indeed, the new 2018 Toyota C-HR doesn’t even offer AWD as an upgrade, so drivers who choose this vehicle will be completely out of luck. By contrast, AWD can be equipped even on the most affordable trim levels of the celebrated 2017 Honda HR-V—and this isn’t the only advantage this Honda model enjoys over its competitor!

Honda HR-V vs. Toyota C-HR

The 2018 Toyota C-HR was recently described by the writers at Motor Trend as “completely unsure of what it wants to be,” and we can’t help but agree. Drivers who want a subcompact that has it all would do well to pass over the C-HR and choose one of the segment’s real success stories instead! In addition to offering AWD right in its baseline LX, the HR-V wins out over the C-HR in terms of cargo volume, passenger volume, and seating flexibility—thanks to its 60/40-split rear seat. Additionally, the C-HR lacks the Honda’s CD player, MP3 player, stereo anti-theft technology, and underseat storage. What’s more, even with AWD equipped, the 2017 Honda HR-V is available for a lower price than the 2WD 2018 Toyota C-HR! No matter what you’re after in your next subcompact crossover, you’ll find more to love in a Honda than you will in a Toyota.

Take the HR-V for a Test Drive!

Don’t miss your chance to take the 2017 Honda HR-V for a test drive. Thanks in part to its AWD, it’s a much better option than the 2018 Toyota C-HR, and when you make use of our current offers and financing options, this Honda could be yours for a great price.
