Differences Between 2019 Honda HR-V & 2019 Honda Fit

Serving Serving Cincinnati, OH, Louisville, KY, and Florence, KY

Taking home a new Honda soon is a primary goal, but you may be struggling to decide which of the many stunning vehicles in the current lineup are most well-suited for your needs. If you are in the market for a smaller vehicle that has exceptional performance capabilities and that is well-equipped with thoughtful features, two options may be at the top of your list. These are the 2019 Honda HR-V and the 2019 Honda Fit. The HR-V is classified as a subcompact crossover SUV, and the Fit is in the supermini group. This is only one of many differences between these two vehicles that you should learn about before you finalize your purchase plans.


Responsiveness and power are two common traits that today’s automotive shoppers are looking for, and you will not be disappointed with the performance capabilities of either of these Honda vehicles. The HR-V is equipped with the same base engine across all trim levels, and this is an inline 4-cylinder engine that offers up to 141 horsepower and 127 foot-pounds of torque. Likewise, the Fit is available with the same base engine for each of its four trims for the 2019 model year. Up to 130 horsepower is generated by an inline 4-cylinder engine. Keep in mind that the Fit offers slightly better fuel economy than the HR-V. For both vehicles, performance is enhanced by an automatic transmission, hill start assist, anti-lock brakes, a drive-by-wire throttle system, Eco Assist and an electric parking brake.

Exterior Design and Features

While these two vehicles are in different automotive sectors, the Fit is only a few inches smaller than the HR-V in height and width. It is, however, 9 inches shorter in length. When you compare the exterior design and features for these two Honda models, you will find that they both have a similar signature grille and headlight designs. The rear hatchback-style liftgate on both vehicles angles slightly outward at the bottom to add exterior style and to improve cargo space. However, the Fit’s hood angles more sharply downward in the front and has a more pointed look compared to the HR-V’s more pronounced hood design. In addition, side contouring in the Fit features a character line, and the roofline fades downward slightly into a rear spoiler. The HR-V has more defined contouring along the side panels. While its roofline does not fade sharply down, it is more rounded than the Fit’s roofline.

Interior Design and Features

Honda has designed both of these beautiful vehicles with a comfortable, appealing interior. Both can accommodate five passengers, but the HR-V has a few additional cubic feet of passenger space and cargo space than the Fit has. Similar interior features are found in both of these vehicles across most trim levels. A few of the features that you may expect to find in your new Honda include numerous safety features, a quality sound system with speed-sensitive volume control, a 5-inch color touchscreen or larger, power door locks, power windows, cruise control, a radio data system, Bluetooth technology and more.

As you continue to compare these two vehicles, keep in mind that the Fit’s MSRP at the base trim level is a few thousand dollars less than the HR-V’s MSRP. Make plans to drop by the dealership soon to take a test drive so that you can compare these two vehicles in person.
