History / Overview
Since 2016, the HR-V has served Honda shoppers in the market for a subcompact crossover. Sharing its underpinnings with the Honda Fit hatchback, the HR-V boasts impressive space thanks to a clever, flexible interior design similar to that in the Fit. Following a refresh in 2019, the HR-V is unchanged for 2020.
Honda offers the HR-V in LX, Sport and Touring trims. All use the same 1.8L four-cylinder engine and standard continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The LX is available with front- or all-wheel drive; AWD is standard in Sport and Touring.
HR-V LX comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, an electronic parking brake, a front wiper de-icer, LED brake lights, automatic climate control, Bluetooth, map lights, power door locks, power windows, keyless entry, a tilt-and-telescoping steering column, six-way manual driver's seat, heated front seats, and a four-speaker stereo with touchscreen controls and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Honda equips all HR-V models with forward collision detection with automatic braking, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and automatic high beams.
Sport trim adds active noise cancellation, a six-speaker stereo, dual-zone climate control, passive keyless entry, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, trim-specific wheels, fog lights, a black chrome grille, sunroof, roof rails, and the Honda LaneWatch right-side blind spot display.
Finally, Touring trim brings an auto-dimming rearview mirror, navigation, a leather-trimmed shift lever, leather seating, HD and satellite radio, a trim-specific wheel design, rain-sensing wipers, LED fog lights, and auto on/off LED headlights.
Honda's fuel consumption estimates for the HR-V are 8.4/7.0 L/100 km (city/highway) for the FWD version, and 8.8/7.5 L/100 km with AWD.
