Current Model
Based on the Fit subcompact, the HR-V gets a versatile, cargo-friendly rear seat that flips up or folds down flat and low. Considerably smaller and less expensive than the CR-V, the HR-V is loud and the ride is stiff.
Handling is responsive and secure. Power comes from a 141-hp four-cylinder driving either the front or all four wheels. But the HR-V feels underpowered, an impression amplified by the continuously variable transmission. The Honda's strengths include its excellent 29 mpg overall, very flexible interior, and generous rear-seat and cargo room. The front seats are short on support, however. Available premium features include heated leather seats, a sunroof, and keyless entry. The EX is the best choice because it comes with advanced safety features and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

Handling is responsive and secure. Power comes from a 141-hp four-cylinder driving either the front or all four wheels. But the HR-V feels underpowered, an impression created by the CVT transmission amplifying engine noise during acceleration. The Honda's trump card is its excellent 29 mpg overall, very flexible interior, and generous rear seat and cargo room. Available premium features include heated leather seats, a sunroof, and keyless entry, and a rear-view camera is standard. We prefer the LX trim over the EX for its simpler audio controls.
