2017 Chevy Trax vs 2017 Honda HR-V
If you're a driver who wants a higher riding position, SUV-like versatility and the on-road acumen some bulkier SUVs may not be able to provide, then the subcompact crossover segment was created just for you. Subcompact crossovers are a fairly new addition to the automotive industry but they have become extremely popular. This means you'll have many possible models to choose from, including the 2017 Chevy Trax, which we have compared to the 2017 Honda HR-V here.
To help you find out which model is right for you, we've matched up some of the key specs between each vehicle. Take engine horsepower and torque for example. Both models come with only one engine option, so it better be a good one. In this area, the Trax succeeds by providing significantly more torque than the HR-V and a much closer balance between horsepower and torque.

Comparing the 2017 Trax vs the 2017 HR-V
These days, it's easy to take safety for granted with such strict standards. Yet, it's important that all drivers do some research into the safety of their vehicle before buying. Why? Take the comparison here for example, where the Chevy Trax comes standard with OnStar in-vehicle assistance service, allowing you to seek help if you get in an accident or get lost in an unfamiliar area. The HR-V doesn't offer such a service.
But OnStar isn't the only high-tech equipment you'll find in your Trax. It also comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the latest in vehicle infotainment technology and something you won't find available in the 2017 HR-V. The Trax also comes standard with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities.
When comparing the 2017 Chevy Trax vs the 2017 Honda HR-V, it's easy to see how Chevy's subcompact crossover offering has the edge in areas of vehicle technology, engine power and safety assistance.
