Overview

Every Honda HR-V is powered by an extremely efficient 1.8L 4-cylinder engine which produces 141 horsepower. From there, power is sent to the front wheels through a 6-speed manual transmission. The optional automatic is a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that is able to alter gear ratios on the fly, allowing for infinitely adjustable gear ratios and extremely good fuel economy. All-wheel drive is an option should buyers need it, available on vehicles equipped with a CVT. In front-wheel-drive CVT trim, the HR-V is rated at 31 mpg in combined city and highway driving, while all-wheel-drive versions still average 29 mpg in mixed driving.

The HR-V comes in three basic trims: LX, EX and EX-L. Each offers an extremely competitive list of features for a compact crossover.

The HR-V LX comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview backup camera, a 160-watt sound system with speed-sensitive volume control, a 5-inch color LCD screen, an auxiliary input jack, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, a second-row power outlet and of course, power windows and door locks.

The HR-V EX adds a ton of standard features to the HR-V while only adding a couple thousand dollars to the base price. The EX trim comes with a 7-inch touchscreen display for controlling the uprated sound system, heated front seats, a one-touch power moonroof, a multi-angle rearview parking camera, heated mirrors, Pandora radio compatibility, push-button start and a little bit of extra chrome on both the interior and exterior.

The EX-L comes standard with a CVT transmission and is the only trim level to offer the option of a full-on navigation system. The EX-L builds upon the EX by also offering a leather-lined interior, SiriusXM satellite radio, roof rails and an auto-dimming electronic mirror.

Safety features on the HR-V range include anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control, as well as a hill start feature and a tire pressure monitoring system. The HR-V is equipped with dual-stage front airbags, front side airbags and a side curtain airbag. Honda LaneWatch is standard on EX and EX-L models, the system uses tiny cameras in the rearview mirrors to warn drivers about potential vehicles in the HR-V's blind spots.
