All-wheel drive and performance.
As a Subaru model, of course we know that the XV comes with Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system. Every single XV in the lineup has all-wheel drive standard, even at the base level. The Honda HR-V, on the other hand, doesn’t have standard all-wheel drive. It does, however, have it available as an option, but drivers have to ask for it special when ordering.
Power and fuel economy.
The standard equipment on the Subaru XV is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 156 horsepower and torque of 196Nm / 4000 rpm. Comparatively, the Honda HR-V engine is a less-impressive, 142-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder with torque of 172Nm / 4300 rpm. Additionally, the XV has a larger gas tank that averages around 448 miles in the city per tank of gas, and 548 miles on the highway per tank. The Honda averages only 370 in the city and 449 miles on the highway per tank of gas.
The Subaru XV is engineered with plenty of insulation and the interior is designed to muffle exterior noise and any engine noise. The Honda HR-V, on the other hand, is not built with the same level of noise-cancelling technology, and has been criticized in reviews for having an exceedingly loud engine and ride quality.
