If you are in the market for a spacious sport utility vehicle but you want to make sure that it remains fuel-efficient and that it remains easy to drive and fun to drive, especially in an urban environment, then the 2021 Honda HR-V and 2021 Nissan Qashqai are two great places to start. Both are spacious and both are efficient, but the 2021 Honda HR-V does have the upper hand over the Qashqai in terms of overall versatility as well as fuel economy. Let's take a closer look at how each model compares to the other.

The 2021 Nissan Qashqai and the 2021 Honda HR-V are both powered by a four-cylinder engine that delivers 141 horsepower. However, the Nissan Qashqai is less fuel-efficient than the Honda HR-V which means that for the equal amount of power, you will pay less in fuel for the HR-V. This translates directly into more money in your pocket. Both are offered with all-wheel drive and both come standard with a CVT automatic gearbox. The performance on the road is similar as stated previously, but the major difference here is that the HR-V is more fuel-efficient.
