The 2019 Honda HR-V may be the brand's smallest SUV, but it's a giant among rivals. For proof you only need to look inside, especially the back, where the seats fold, flip and can otherwise contort themselves to accommodate people and cargo far more readily than you'd expect for a subcompact crossover. It's the kind of utility Honda owners will appreciate for years to come - just like the Honda HR-V's excellent resale value.
For 2019, the HR-V has retained a budget-friendly starting price of just $20,520, but has gained even more features. All models get a styling update inside and out, and starting on mid-level EX trims receive the Honda Sensing suite of active safety and driver-assistance features such as automatic emergency braking, road departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keeping assist.
On the tech front, the HR-V also gains Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality. And for those with a little extra money in their pocket, there's even a new Touring trim that blesses the HR-V with leather interior, power driver's seat, satellite navigation and standard all-wheel drive (optional on other trims).
As we note in our review of the 2019 Honda HR-V, "If you're looking for an economical small car, but also want the ground clearance and all-wheel-drive ability of an SUV, the 2019 Honda HR-V satisfies both criteria and then some. The HR-V sips gas, offers a wide variety of trims and options and retains excellent resale and reliability scores." Add it all up, and the diminutive Honda HR-V delivers big.
