HVR vs Fit

I drive a 2015 Fit. Really like it exept a bit noisy engine and a really stiff ride. How does the HRV compare in those catagories?

I have an 09 Fit Sport. I think yours is quieter and has a bigger engine and it might be bigger on the inside than mine.

I test drove an HRV EX-L and liked it except it definitely does not have the spunk the Fits do. It's heavier and bigger. Even with the Civic engine it seemed sluggish in comparison. Although the ride was smooth. It is quieter than my Fit too.

Depending on what your looking for the HRV is a nice car with lots of great creature comforts. My car is paid for and running great, so it's not an option for me. Good luck, go test drive one.

I just came out of a 2015 fit ex manual and 2012 crv into a 2016 hrv awd ex. No comparison with the fit. The fit is a economic ride the hrv is both economic and a more upscale ride than the fit hands down...different classes. I love my hrv I liked my fit.

Agree with BBhondaguy... we just moved our 2011 Fit to number one son.. HRV is a totally different ride. Smooth composed easier to get into and out of (if you are tall) and still has the milage and great hauling capability of the Fit. Back seat room for another couple is much nicer than the 2011 Fit. ( it would be interesting to compare the HRV to the new fit with the larger back seat pitch for the back seater types).

Just bought a '15 Fit, wonder how much they differ.
love the fit, but some things bug me, like noisy engine, stiff suspension, lack of storage space, uncomfortable place for coffee, and worst one is "no arm rest"

I had a 2015 honda fix ex 6 speed manual for a very short time! I drove the HRV as soon as they could be sold and fell head over heals for it. I like it much better than the fit. Although the fit is what it is, a fun to drive economy car...



I currently drive the 2016 honda hrv ex awd in milano - love it. MPG far exceeds my expectations.
and a 2007 honda ridgeline rtl awd with 35,000 miles on it!~

Comparison....

I see that some vehicle review sites rate the FIT higher than the HRV....The Car Connection for example...

The HR-V is a Fit on steroids. Pull a Fit up next to an HR-V, raise 4 inches, and "poof"...you have two HR-V's
