The most obvious difference between these two vehicles is the 2015 Honda CR-V offers more space for both passengers and cargo. The 70.9 cubic feet of overall cargo space is one of the highest capacities in the segment, and thanks to the box-like design of the CR-V, you can easily make use of every inch of that space. There is also 104.1 cubic feet of passenger volume, meaning that even if you load up five adults everyone rides in comfort.

The 2015 Honda Civic is smaller, but that might be an asset. It still delivers 11.7 cubic feet of cargo space in the trunk, and the cabin has a generous 94.6 cubic feet of space, but thanks to its compact sedan design it is easy to pilot though congested traffic and fit into tight parking spaces. It you prefer the ease of a smaller vehicle over the utility of a larger one, the Civic is the smart choice.


How Do You Drive?

The 2015 Honda CR-V is the stronger of the two vehicles, but the Civic offers you lots of options to customize the driving experience. All CR-V trims are powered by a 2.4L four-cylinder that delivers 185 hp and 181 lb-ft of torque. That is plenty of power to carry you up a steep incline or over rough terrain. If you want a vehicle that delivers muscle on demand, the CR-V has got your covered.

The 2015 Honda Civic has a smaller 1.8L four-cylinder producing 143 and 129 lb-ft of torque. That is plenty of power for most, and it helps the 2015 Honda Civic get fuel-efficiency ratings that reach 39 on the highway with CVT models.**** The Civic is also available in hybrid, natural gas, and performance trims, meaning if you want stellar fuel economy, or a car that can rip down the road, you have options.


Vehicle Price and Features

Both of these vehicles are affordable compared to others in their class, but if budget is your priority the 2015 Honda Civic sedan is more modestly priced starting at $18,490.* The 2015 Honda CR-V starts at $23,445***, and at the top of the trim ladder offers higher levels of luxury than that Civic.

No matter which vehicle or trim you select, however, expect your new Honda to come with a long list of features. Standard across the board is a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, and an enhanced stereo with Pandora capability. Higher level trims also offer premium upholstery, integrated navigation systems, and advanced safety features.
