Price and Value
Nobody wants to spend a fortune for a compact sport-ute, and you won't have to when you choose a 2016 Honda HR-V over a Chevrolet Trax. The base model manual starts at an MSRP of $19,115 while the Trax has an MSRP of $20,120. You don't need a calculator to determine you'll save $1000 just by going with a Honda HR-V -- and that's before we start any negotiations here at Venice Honda! So you will keep more money in the bank with this stunning new sport-ute than you would if you bought the Trax -- so the 2016 Honda HR-V already has a huge advantage! The 2016 Honda HR-V also earns better MPG ratings thank the Chevrolet Trax; when properly equipped with the CVT gearbox and front-wheel drive, the HR-V returns up to 28 city MPG and 35 highway MPG. Meanwhile, the Chevy Trax can only muster 26 city and 34 highway MPG. So let's recap; $1,000 savings at the dealership and lifetime savings at the gas station? Sounds to us like the Honda HR-V is the winner of this duel.
Today's cars are so innovative and cutting edge, it's almost like Christmas morning when you see the standard features packed inside, especially when you are opening up the new Honda HR-V. The 2016 Honda HR-V comes with uber-stylish 17-inch alloy wheels, a multi-angle rearview camera, Hill Start Assist, which is extremely helpful when parked on inclines; a CVT automatic transmission, and Pandora radio integration. HR-V buyers also get four-wheel disc brakes, standard aluminum alloy wheels, and 141 horsepower from an efficient four-cylinder engine. Unfortunately for Chevy Trax buyers, they will be stuck with standard 16-inch steel wheels, a single-vision rearview camera, disc brakes only for the front wheels, and only 138 horsepower - and that's from a turbocharged engine! So, it looks like you will pay less for more car with a 2016 Honda HR-V! Leave the Trax in the dust and make the savvy choice for your next car; pick the all-new Honda HR-V.
Cargo Volume and Configurations
When you're driving a small sport-ute, you obviously need the utility of cargo space with a smaller footprint. You'll get plenty of volume in the 2016 Honda HR-V, which offers up a massive 59 cubic feet up to the first row, and 24 cubic feet with a full house and all seats up. You'll feel a tight squeeze in the Trax, which only manages 48.4 cubic feet to the first row, and 18.7 cubic feet with all rows up. Another thing the Chevy Trax lacks (hey, that rhymes!) is Honda's innovative and totally easy-to-use Magic Seat system. This exceptional feature allows you to easily reconfigure the HR-V's interior to accommodate a variety of passenger and cargo set ups. The Magic Seat flips and folds with the simple pull of a lever or pull of a bar. The HR-V's rear seat is split 60/40, so you can choose precisely the right configuration to carry both people and passengers. There are three modes you can configure the HR-V's cabin into to fit your people or cargo carrying needs. First, there's Normal mode, which leaves the rear seats up and utilizes the rear cargo area. Second, Utility mode: flip the rear seats into the floor and you get a completely flat load surface that can accommodate bulky items with ease. Third is Tall mode: here, the rear seats' lower cushions are flipped up vertically to open up nearly four feet of vertical space behind the front seats. Lastly, there's Long mode: the 40-side of the rear seat folds into the floor and the front passenger seat reclines completely to make a long load surface that can accommodate items up to eight feet long! Can your Trax do that? We didn't think so.
The 2016 Honda HR-V is clearly the winner in this battle of subcompact utility, so why not come down to Venice Honda to check it out in person? We are located in Venice and serve the entire Venice, FL and the surrounding areas.
