When it comes to finding a sub-compact SUV that emphasizes versatility and comfort, two models stand out in the crowd: the 2019 Nissan Qashqai and the 2019 Honda HR-V.
From the outset, we must mention that we are dealing here with two excellent urban sport utility vehicles. That said, there are a few places where the 2019 Nissan Qashqai stands out from the 2019 Honda HR-V, especially in terms of value.
In other words, the 2019 Nissan Qashqai and the 2019 Honda HR-V share a lot of things in common, but the Qashqai gives you more for your money.
2019 Nissan Qashqai is more affordable than the 2019 Honda HR-V
The 2019 Nissan Qashqai is available starting at $ 19,998, nearly $ 3,000 less than the 2019 Honda HR-V. Monthly, the difference is noticeable in terms of the payment. When it comes to equipment, however, both SUVs are roughly equivalent.
The Qashqai comes standard with heated front seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto features, and a rearview camera. If we want more equipment, then there's the Nissan Qashqai SV that features 17-inch wheels, pedestrian detection emergency braking system, blind spot monitoring and panoramic sunroof, all at only $ 25,998.
You’ll need $ 28,600 to get a Honda HR-V that approaches this level of equipment.
Finally, the 2019 Nissan Qashqai offers its high-end SL version with 19-inch wheels and the ProPilot driving assistance package that includes an automatic lane keeping system, something that you won’t find in the HR-V’s Honda Sensing. The latter can prevent lane exits, but it does not maintain the lane automatically and cannot follow the curves of the road.
The Qashqai SL offers all this for only $ 31,198, the equivalent of the fully equipped HR-V model.
Under the hood, both SUVs offer 141 horsepower from a four-cylinder engine and both models have roughly the same fuel consumption rating. It is therefore up to you to choose the model that offers you more for your money and in this case, the 2019 Nissan Qashqai stands out.
