Honda HR-VIf you’re looking at the 2016 Chevy Trax price and thinking it has something special to offer Albany area drivers, what would you say if we told you that there was a more affordable crossover? Would you believe us if we told you that the more affordable model also offered an edge on fuel economy and features? It’s not too good to be true, it’s the new 2016 Honda HR-V, and we think it has something extra to offer for drivers who are shopping on a budget.

  • The 2016 Honda HR-V 2WD LX 6MT is priced at just $19,215 (MSRP).*
  • 2016 Chevy Trax LX models are priced starting at $20,300.

While that’s a pretty significant difference already, we think you’ll be surprised by all of the other advantages of the HR-V.

Honda Builds Affordable Crossovers

One of the key features that makes a crossover seem affordable to us at Capital Region Honda Dealers is that the base trim comes with the features drivers want so that upgrades feel like options instead of necessities. While the 2016 Chevy Trax price does include features that put it above some competitors, it’s still lacking in the face of the HR-V.

Each HR-V includes the following amenities that are either unavailable or require an upgrade on the Trax:

  • Rear disc brakes
  • Cruise control
  • CD player stereo system with MP3 input
  • Under-seat storage
  • Alloy wheels

The Trax manages to go toe-to-toe with the HR-V on technology but then leaves out some of these key features that many drivers want or expect on a new crossover. Honda’s HR-V also has more cargo space, offering 24.3 cubic feet (expandable to 58.8) to the Trax’s 18.7 cubic feet (expanding to just 48.4). We haven’t even touched on the fuel economy yet, either.

It’s not just the base model of the HR-V that bests the Trax; we compared the 2016 HR-V LX AWD to the 2016 Trax LS AWD to give you an idea of how other specs compare, especially for drivers seeking all-wheel drive crossovers.
