Subaru XV VS Honda HR-V

Subaru XV VS Honda HR-V

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.

Quiet ride.

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.

How Boxer Engines Work – 3D Printed Subaru WRX Engine

How Boxer Engines Work – 3D Printed Subaru WRX Engine

What makes the Subaru WRX so magical? Is it symmetrical all-wheel drive? Turbocharging? The flat-brimmed hat that is required to operate one? All of those things are true, but one of the most unique things about this sport sedan is its special heart: the horizontally opposed “boxer” four-cylinder engine. Let’s learn how it works!


The Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Total Control Comes From Its Core

The Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Total Control Comes From Its Core

The satisfaction of the drive comes from symmetry and balance. That is why Subaru has been developing and perfecting the Symmetrical AWD system since 1972. Matched with the SUBARU BOXER engine for a near-perfect symmetrical layout, it delivers gratifying power with exceptional traction, providing balance and stability for total control in ever-shifting road conditions.

Dynamic Performance

Excellent road adhesion gives acceleration an immediate and exhilarating feel. Symmetry enhances the Subaru XV’s handling to be more stable and responsive during cornering, imparting a unique feeling of control in any situation.

Constant Contact

The more your tyres are engaging the road, the greater control, security and connection you have. Power is routed to all four wheels all the time, maximising handling and traction.

Agility in an Emergency

In bad weather, or in the precious seconds it takes to react to a sudden situation, the symmetrical drivetrain with almost total side-to-side balance provides the stability, agility and traction that help you step around danger.
