The Toyota C-HR range includes three models, one more than in the Honda HR-V range.

With the length and width being notably more, the Toyota C-HR is bigger in size compared to the Honda HR-V. For a relatively more sportier stance though, the Toyota C-HR sits much lower than the Honda HR-V. The C-HR is based on Toyota’s new TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) platform while the HR-V is based on Honda’s Global Compact Series platform.
