Differences between the 2018 Toyota C-HR and 2017 Honda HR-V
Even when you go up to the EX trim on the Honda HR-V, you're still getting the manual transmission and will need to dish out extra to enjoy the convenience of an automatic CVT, which is the standard transmission in the Toyota C-HR at all trims. The 2018 Toyota C-HR also comes standard with a suite of advanced safety features, which is something that will cost you extra on the Honda HR-V. Even then, the HR-V can only offer a small fraction of what you get in the Toyota C-HR.
Both of these cars are stylish and will look good on the road or in the driveway, but we have to give the edge to the 2018 Toyota C-HR. Its sharp, angular exterior has a more athletic and premium feel, which is further complimented by some of the features that are available for it. For instance, the 2018 Toyota XLE Premium trim comes with puddle light projection, which projects a Toyota C-HR logo on the street below.
