About Honda HR-V

If we could assign a slogan to the 2018 Honda HR-V subcompact-crossover SUV, it would have to be “smaller is better.” Comparable in size to the original Honda CR-V, the HR-V displays Honda’s talent for packaging a lot of vehicle into a very compact space. Case in point, the HR-V’s flip-up Magic Seat that allows tall or bulky items to be easily stowed behind the front seats. In fact, the HR-V provides more interior room than a Mazda CX-3 or Nissan Juke, and delivers better fuel economy than either the Jeep Renegade or Chevrolet Trax. HR-V buyers can choose between front-wheel or all-wheel drive and a choice of manual or automatic transmissions, although the lack of a collision-avoidance system seems a glaring omission.

"Nice, tight ride. Sturdy and reliable. Air-conditioning not great. Takes a long time to get cool. Rear seat fold-down gave me lotsa room to pack-up. Driver console has NO room! Disappointing.But overall good car for the AWD small SUV."

"I'm going on my third month with the HRV and I have to say I love this car. I was researching SUV's for almost a year preparing for my end of lease with my Chevy Malibu. I wanted a smaller SUV but wanted AWD for the harsh winters in NY. I noticed that all of the competition does not offer the standard features that the HRV EX come with including; rear view camera, Bluetooth, lane watch (a great feature), brake hold (great in traffic or drive thru windows), moon roof, AWD, and heated cloth seats. All of this for 24K. That and the cargo space is what sold the car for me. For a small SUV it has a pretty big trunk and the magic seats add to the cargo capacity. Plenty of room for a family of 3 like mine or maybe even 4. I'm 5'11" and there's plenty of space behind the driver's seat for an adult as well. Now with everything there are some negatives to point out. You will not be winning any races with this car. This wasn't that important to me. Although I was disappointed coming from a car with 190+ HP. I knew what I was getting into and have gotten used to having less power but much better fuel economy! 27 MPG I'm averaging on mostly city driving. If you're looking for a lot of power you won’t find it here so look elsewhere. Though I don’t agree with the expert reviews on other websites that say the car is slow. It moves but you have to push it for power and when pushed the engine is loud. Here are some more things that I wish were better with the vehicle; interior storage space is lacking, the radio on the EX and EX-L doesn’t have knobs nor does the heat/ac. I have gotten used to this but it can be annoying to some. There is no temperature gauge in the car. I’ve never had a car without this and was quite surprised. Basically, you will not know how hot the engine is running until it’s about the over heat. The car also does not handle bumps all that well. It’s generally quiet on smooth roads but driving on NY roads with many potholes is not fun if you like a smooth ride. Also, the car doesn’t come with an owner’s manual. However, you can go to Honda’s website and request one to be mailed. Another thing I noticed is the doors seem heavy and I have to reopen and close them a lot because I generally don’t slam the door hard enough. These negatives are pretty minor to me but noteworthy. Overall, this is one of my favorite cars and I’ve owned 8 so far. I highly recommend checking out the HRV if you’re looking for a small sporty looking SUV that gets great MPG. None of the competition can beat the price/value, cargo space and features."

"We have had our HRV for a couple hundred miles and it is honestly one of the most fun vehicles we have ever had. I am 6'3 and am very comfortable in the cabin, and even in the back seat with the front seats all the way back. The HD radio is incredible - awesome sound, even better than my Bose headphones. Great gas mileage, awesome layout of the digital touchscreens, incredibly comfortable seats and very responsive 1.8 L engine. We have never had the accelerator more than halfway down and have had more than enough power. Lots of space in the rear cargo area for groceries or kids stuff - AWESOME overall!"
