Current Model
    The redesigned HR-V gets upgraded to the newly redesigned Civic's platform, making it a more pleasant vehicle by being less noisy, not as stiff riding and roomier. It’s practical and user-friendly, making it an ideal college kid car.
    This new HR-V is now larger but it lost its magic rear seat that was able to flip up and the super low floor. The 158-hp, 2.0-liter engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission, a powertrain that makes the HR-V feel underpowered. The controls and infotainment system are very easy to use. Top trim EX-L gets a 9-inch screen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, wireless phone charger. The HR-V comes with Honda Sensing suite of safety features but blind spot warning is not standard.

    Based on the discontinued Fit subcompact, the HR-V has a versatile, cargo-friendly rear seat with bottoms that can flip up to reveal the second-row floor, or with backs that fold 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. The EX is the better choice because it comes with FCW and AEB, along with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. A redesign, based on the current Civic, is imminent.

    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 also louder and the ride is stiffer.
    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. The manual transmission is no longer offered on the 2020 model.
