The Honda HR-V was introduced at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, sparking the expansion of an entirely new class of crossover. At launch, the Honda HR-V was introduced as a 2016 model that was offered in LX, EX and EX-L trim levels.
Built on the same platform as the subcompact Honda Fit hatchback, the HR-V combines Honda styling with greater utility.
The formula for the Fit translates onto the Honda HR-V with the latter’s short length and higher stance. A high ground clearance enables the HR-V to manage road hazards and climatic conditions. Five people can fit inside the HR-V, and a flexible 60/40 split-folding second row called the Magic Seat offers a number of cargo configurations. The result is an impressive amount of cargo space, especially when compared against that of other small SUVs.
Honda interior design is carried over into the HR-V with clearly marked analog gauges, an information screen in the instrument binnacle and an adjustable steering wheel. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, power windows, power door locks and cruise control. Uplevel features such as automatic climate control, leather upholstery and heated front seats are also offered.
Honda also offers a standard rearview camera on all HR-V models. The EX and EX-L trims add Honda’s blind spot camera system (LaneWatch), which provides a view of the blind spot on the right side when the HR-V is making a right turn. Bluetooth connectivity is standard on all models, while HondaLink is offered on higher trims to enable the dedicated use of smartphone apps through this system.
The Honda HR-V does a commendable job of delivering controlled handling, good fuel economy and power that’s acceptable for the class. It’s offered with a 141-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. A six-speed manual transmission is offered only with front-wheel drive, whereas the optional continuously variable transmission (CVT) can be paired with front- or all-wheel drive.
While expanding the new subcompact crossover segment, the Honda HR-V is up against competitors such as the Chevrolet Trax, Jeep Renegade and Mazda CX-3. The HR-V works in various settings, from urban enclaves to rural communities and in-between.
