2023 Dodge Hornet vs 2023 Honda CR-V

The 2023 Dodge Hornet and the 2023 Honda CR-V are both compact SUVs, but they offer very different driving experiences. The Hornet is a muscle car-inspired SUV with a powerful engine and a sporty driving feel. The CR-V is a more fuel-efficient SUV with a comfortable ride and a spacious interior.
Here is a comparison of the two SUVs:

 Feature Dodge Hornet
 Honda CR-V
 2.0L turbocharge four-cylinder
 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder
 268 hp
 190 hp
 Torque 295 lb-ft.

 Transmission 9-speed automatic
 Continuously variable automatic (CVT)
 Drivetrain All-wheel drive

 Fuel Economy
 21 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway
 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway
 Price Starts at $29,995

As you can see, the Hornet has a more powerful engine and a sportier driving feel than the CR-V. However, the CR-V is more fuel-efficient and has a larger interior and a more spacious cargo area.  With a $4,000 difference in starting price the Dodge Hornet is a more affordable option.  That's an impressive price difference when you consider the Hornet comes with standard all-wheel drive.  AWD is an expensive upgrade on the CR-V
Ultimately, the best SUV for you will depend on your individual needs and preferences. If you are looking for a fun and powerful SUV, the Hornet is a great option!
