Honda HRV vs Skoda Yeti vs Nissan Qashqai
If you are considering a small SUV, you are not alone. This segment is one of the most fiercely competitive. While small car sales have declined by 7.6 percent during 2015 compared to 2014 figures, the small SUV segment has swelled by an impressive 27.4 percent. So, with so many great options, how to do choose whether a Nissan or Skoda is a better buy than a Honda HRV, with a comparison, of course.
The Honda HRV:
With phenomenal sales figures, there are great expectations for the new Honda HRV 2016. When considering this model for sale, Perth drivers should be aware that the price ranges from $24,990 through to $33,990. The model is impressively well finished even in the base models. The front wheel drive, CVT automatic model spec appears fairly basic, but it offers a fantastic interior, great price and excellent performance.
The Skoda Yeti:
This model is available from $24,390, making the base models comparable in price. The four cylinder 1.2 or 1.4 turbo petrol engine, delivers 81kW or 92 kW of power respectively. This is far less than the 105 kW offered by the 1.8 litre HRV engine. Additionally, the Yeti feels a little dated since it is now several years old. While it stands up against some of the models in the small SUV segment, when compared with the HRV, its age is unfortunately, very obvious.
The Nissan Qashqai:
The UK built Qashqai is another strong seller in the segment. It has a longer, wider wheelbase than the HRV and Yeti, which makes it feel very big when driving. While this additional size does offer more boot space compared to the HRV, it is almost in a limbo between small and large SUV.
The Qashqai is also the most pricey model in this comparison. The base model is available from $25,850 while you can expect to pay almost $40k for the top of the line variant.
When you compare the HRV to other models in the segment, it is easy to see why it was such a massive seller from its launch. The HRV is a class leading model which not only offers an excellent driver experience but is packed with innovations and features. With the Honda HRV, Australia drivers can feel confident that they are getting their hands on a wonderful balance of attractive pricing, impressive performance, excellent cabin and a plethora of technology. This makes it a strong competitor for any driver. Whether you are looking for a smart commuter vehicle or an SUV for your weekend off road adventures, the HRV makes an excellent choice.
