Don’t Plan Your Next Trip Without This! - The 2019 Honda HR-V in Clear Lake

It’s never too early to start planning your next vacation, and if you’re thinking of taking a road trip then you’ll want to consider upgrading your vehicle to the 2019 Honda HR-V in Clear Lake! This Honda has an incredibly spacious interior with serious style, but don’t just take our word for it. Keep reading to see why it’s a better choice over the Chevrolet Trax.


More Passenger Space and Cargo Capacity


Having more passenger volume and a larger cargo area means that you won’t have to pick and choose which friends to bring on your next road trip, because you’ll be able to bring them all! With a total of 100.1 cubic feet of space (vs. 92.8 cubic feet), your passengers will have enough leg, hip, and shoulder room to settle in for the long journey. For that special touch, the rear seats in the HR-V recline so dozing off in the back is possible without having to lean on the door! If you’re worried about fitting all of your friends and their gear, don’t be because the HR-V has 24.3 cubic feet of cargo space (vs. 18.7 cubic feet) with its rear seat up, and when you fold down the back seat, that expands to an impressive 58.8 cubic feet (vs. 48.4 cubic feet)! What could you pack with all of that room?


Better Fuel Economy and Range


Once you have everyone loaded up and ready to go, you won’t be making a lot of stops for gas in this Honda. And with a fuel capacity of 13.2 gallons, you might want to warn them about the lack of pit stops during the trip. Check out the MPG on each HR-V model in the chart below.

Convenience for the Commute and Countryside


There’s a lot to focus on when you hit the road, and the HR-V is the perfect companion to keep you safe and alert of the things you might miss. On the EX, EX-L and Touring model, you’ll have access to Adaptive Cruise Control which automatically adjusts the vehicle’s speed without the driver interfering. This helps keep a safe following distance, even when unsuspected traffic slows you down. For when you do run into traffic, you’ll be able to bypass jams in the Touring model thanks to its standard GPS navigation system. This system has real-time traffic updates and can show you alternate routes to take so you can afford traffic congestion. The Trax doesn’t have a navigation system with real-time traffic updates or adaptive cruise control, so you’ll still have those struggles driving around in the Chevy.
