Performance Specs and Fuel Efficiency

One of the perks of a subcompact crossover SUV over a wagon or hatchback is the fact that most models are offered with available all-wheel drive.

The Chevrolet Trax pulls away from the competition, though with a turbocharged 1.4L four-cylinder engine that puts out a sure-footed 148 lb-ft of torque.

That’s noticeably more than the Honda HR-V’s 1.8L four-cylinder engine with only 127 lb-ft of torque. While standard EPA-estimated highway fuel economy on both of these models is 34 mpg, the Chevrolet Trax gets standard 26 mpg city compared to the Honda HR-V’s 25 mpg city.

Safety Features

The 2016 Chevrolet Trax and the 2016 Honda HR-V each get standard safety features like front side airbags, side curtain airbags, traction control, stability control, antilock brakes, and a rearview camera. However, the Trax stands apart, because it also gets side impact airbags in the back, as well as the OnStar telematics system with roadside assistance, automatic crash notification, and a stolen vehicle locator.
