    If you're in the market for a small SUV, you'll likely be looking for a few key features. You'll want something with all-wheel drive to handle those rougher roads for times your adventure takes you off the beaten path, as well as a spacious interior to keep passengers happy and some impressive safety technology to assist you on your journey. After some research, you'll likely come down to comparing popular choices like the 2022 GMC Terrain vs 2022 Honda CR-V. Each is a small SUV that drives smoothly, is decked out with creature comforts for passengers and drivers, and is ready for that road trip life.

    Both of these formidable options have impressed buyers this year. Their designers delivered new and improved technology packages to keep you plugged into your life while on the road, keeping you entertained and informed about travel conditions. Each also offers a comprehensive safety package, including cameras to help you see what you can't naturally view from the driver's seat, collision warning features, and lane assist. Boasting similar MSRPs, the Terrain and CR-V often go head to head. Since they're both from long-trusted manufacturers whose cars can be seen all over the roads, they're top picks for many searching for an SUV or truck.

    A side-by-side comparison picked out a few features that ultimately made the 2022 GMC Terrain stand out. Though both manufacturers are known for their reliable vehicles, GMC continuously puts out SUVs that shine in the areas drivers want from this type of vehicle. This year's Terrain boasts a particularly eye-catching design and technology that was added with current user habits in mind. There's a lot to love about both the cars, but the 2022 GMC Terrain rose to the top for several reasons.

  • Technology

    GMC Kept Modern Drivers In Mind

    Both the 2022 Honda CR-V and the 2022 GMC Terrain come with technology and connectivity to make the driver's life easier. Staying connected to what's happening at home and with loved ones––as well as on the road ahead––is important for drivers. And having access to those apps and programs that keep you entertained is always a bonus. However, the GMC Terrain stands out because it was designed more with current driver habits in mind than the Honda CR-V.

    While the CR-V does allow you to plug in your iPhone or Android to access useful apps, messages, and more, the GMC takes things a step forward. It, too, has connectivity for smartphones, but it also comes with built-in Amazon Alexa and a navigation system. This eliminates the need to plug in or handle external devices. And with the Amazon Alexa capable of managing so many things––including appliances at home––this is simply a feature that's prone to catch drivers' attention.

    Each vehicle is equipped with features to help drivers and passengers keep devices charged, but the GMC gets extra points here, too. While the CR-V has USB ports for charging devices, as major smartphone designers continually upgrade their models, they also frequently change their USB plugs. That means the current CR-V ports could be unusable within a few years. Either way, when you have multiple riders, nobody likes to fight for limited USB ports. Meanwhile, the GMC has a wireless charging pad––no need for any cables and no need to worry whether or not a USB plug is compatible.

    On the Go Entertainment

    Both vehicles do boast large, easy-to-read screens and excellent speaker systems. Which one rises to the top is a matter of opinion. The Honda CR-V does boast an impressive nine-speaker sound system. While the GMC Terrain offers a seven-speaker system, don't let the smaller number of speakers fool you––it's about quality over quantity here. The GMC system is made by sound industry leader Bose, so having fewer speakers doesn't necessarily mean lower-quality sound.

    The GMC Terrain and the Honda CR-V offer Apple CarPlay compatibility to let iPhone users access all of their favorite apps––including music––in their vehicle. The Honda CR-V additionally contains some entertainment options that make it feel a bit outdated, like Pandora and SiriusXM. With SiriusXM being initially free but eventually paid, it's no comparison to the included Amazon Alex in the GMC. All in all, the designers of the GMC Terrain paid more attention to the brands and quality of technology drivers favor in 2022 than the makers of the Honda CR-V.

  • Safety

    Standard GMC Pro Safety

    Safety is a top priority among drivers, and both GMC and Honda took special care in offering excellent safety packages in their 2022 vehicles. The 2022 GMC Terrain comes with standard automated emergency braking and pedestrian detection to prevent collisions. It additionally features standard lane-departure warnings and lane-assist warnings. A following distance indicator notifies the driver if they are too close to another vehicle, while the IntelliBeam system senses dark conditions and turns the high beams on and off accordingly, illuminating the road when needed but never blinding oncoming drivers.

    The 2022 GMC Terrain can have eyes where the driver doesn't, with its helpful side-mirror visual alerts that let you know when somebody is in your blind spot––which is critical to avoiding lane-change accidents. Rear traffic alert lets drivers know when other vehicles or pedestrians are behind them while they're backing up, and rear park assist helps drivers back into those tricky parking spots with useful distance alerts.

    CR-V vs Terrain

    The Honda CR-V has the Honda Sensing Package, which is nearly identical to the safety package of the 2022 GMC Terrain. It has lane assist, collision warnings, pedestrian crossing warnings, and rear camera views. However, while the 2022 Honda CR-V does offer a multi-angle rearview camera, the GMC Terrain stands out because of its high definition surround vision system, which offers an overhead image of your vehicle to get a comprehensive look at what's happening around you.

    Drivers can feel confident that they'll be safe in either car, but the 2022 GMC Terrain has a couple of intuitive and useful features that make it rise to the top in the safety category. The most comprehensive look at what's happening around your vehicle will come from the 2022 GMC Terrain.

  • Comfort

    Built for Comfort

    Both of these vehicles can transport five passengers. Each offers similar headroom and legroom for second-row passengers, but the 2022 GMC Terrain has a bit more hip room, so riders won't feel quite as cramped in the backseat of this vehicle. Each vehicle offers 60/40-split folding rear seats, making it easy to store larger items in the trunk without having to put down the entire back seat, so a passenger and coat rack can both come along for the ride. Or, you can put the whole back row down to store more stuff.

    Each vehicle boasts available heated front seats and power adjustment, but only the GMC Terrain offers ventilated front seats so that front-row passengers can customize their experience to the ultimate in comfort. For those times riders want to enjoy some natural light, both vehicles have a sunroof. Overall, each of these vehicles offers spacious cabins, so drivers shouldn't hear many complaints from passengers about getting the "bad seat." Between their heated components and adjustable seating, they make it easy for the driver and passengers to get settings just right before hitting the road for long trips.

    The Terrain's Sharp New Looks

    One area in which the GMC does stand out is aesthetic. Though not technically a comfort feature, drivers who get a boost of confidence from driving a vehicle that makes heads turn will likely prefer the 2022 GMC Terrain to the 2022 Honda CR-V. The Terrain has a buzz around it in the car world for its interesting truck-like appearance. Its squared-off front is more attractive than the more sloped 2022 Honda CR-V.

    Plus, the 2022 GMC Terrain has impressed drivers with its updated grille and front bumper, fresh LED headlamps and taillamps, and available 18-inch and 19-inch wheel designs. When it comes to style, the designers at GMC pulled out all the stops on this year's rendition of the Terrain.
