Drivers looking for a subcompact crossover often end up comparing 2019 Honda HR-V vs. Nissan Kicks. Luckily enough, we can save you the effort.

2019 HR-V vs. Kicks: Performance

Whether you’re changing lanes on the highway between Naperville and Chicago or taking off from traffic lights in Bolingbrook, you’ll likely feel the vehicle respond more eagerly when you’re driving a Honda HR-V.

  • Honda HR-V Engine: A 1.8L four-cylinder offers up to 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque.
  • Nissan Kicks Engine: A 1.6L four-cylinder offers up to 125 hp and 115 lb-ft of torque.

Perhaps more importantly, only the Honda HR-V is available with All-Wheel Drive for year-round peace of mind.

2019 HR-V vs. Kicks: Cargo Space

The Honda HR-V offers up to a staggering 58.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear 60/40-split Magic Seat folded, putting even the Nissan Kicks’ available 32.3 cubic feet to shame.

2019 Honda HR-V owners will also get to take advantage of versatile seating configurations:

  • Tall Mode: Drop the second-row seat to stand taller items up on the floor.
  • Long Mode: Fold the front passenger seat to slide longer items across the entire cabin.

2019 HR-V vs. Kicks: Safety

While both the HR-V and 2019 Nissan Kicks have received strong safety ratings, the Nissan is sharply lacking when it comes to safety features. Of the two, only the 2019 Honda HR-V offers:

  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM): A camera reads your position on the road and provides corrective steering pressure if you start to leave it.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC): Maintains a preset distance between your Honda HR-V and the vehicle ahead.
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS): Provides a warning if you stray from your current lane without signaling, then uses corrective steering pressure to recenter your vehicle.
