What the Critics Say

Honda did a great job of putting the money where it counts with the HR-V interior. All the touch points are soft or cushioned, and the controls feel like they have a nice quality to them. Aesthetically this is also a big step up from the previous car and a strong showing relative to the rest of the class.” – Edmunds
As expected from a vehicle this size, the HR-V is easy to pilot in tight quarters, and it has deft maneuverability. It’s surprisingly sporty through turns, with well-controlled body movements and strong braking performance. A pampering ride rounds out this crossover’s solid driving dynamics.” – U.S. News & World Report

All HR-V models now come standard with a Continuously Variable automatic Transmission (CVT) which features revised shift mapping for smoothness and improved acceleration. Optional Real Time All-Wheel Drive lets you drive with confidence even when Mother Nature isn’t cooperating with your plans. Speed-sensitive steering feedback lets you maneuver your HR-V into even the tightest spaces in the parking lot.

Honda HR-V Interior

Tech-Focused Interior

A key strength of the interior of the Honda HR-V is its unmatched versatility and generous capacity. Thanks to its 60/40 split-folding rear seat, you can reconfigure the interior to accommodate cargo and passengers with ease. With up to 98.7 cubic feet of passenger space, everyone will have plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable. Its advanced Body Stabilizing Seats are specially designed to reduce fatigue on longer journeys.

When it comes to advanced technology features, few subcompact SUVs can match the Honda HR-V. Its Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration makes it easier than ever to enjoy your favorite media. Smart features like a multi-angle rearview camera help you drive safer.


Advanced Safety

Standard on all Honda HR-V trim levels, the Honda Sensing® suite of active safety and driver-assistive features provides a helpful assist to keep you out of harm’s way on the road. Technologies included in this collection are Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), and a Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™).
