Exterior Style & Size

Both the Honda CR-V and Honda HR-V are sharp looking crossover SUVs with a bold edgy style. The Honda CR-V is slightly larger than the Honda HR-V and has a somewhat different attitude than the Honda HR-V. The Honda CR-V is the perfect balance of ruggedness and modern sophistication with a honeycomb front grille, clean sculpted body lines, and a wide stance with dual exhaust for an SUV that fits in everywhere. The Honda HR-V, however, sports a more fun and playful style with sweeping angular lines and a dark, aggressive front grille with tasteful chrome accents.
