The Highly Anticipated 2016 Honda HR-V is Now Available
After a long wait, the moment is finally here; we at last get to see and drive the 2016 Honda HR-V. An all-new crossover SUV from Honda, the HR-V offers the best of several automotive experiences. With on-hand utility, capable power, a small carbon footprint, interior versatility, and Honda reliability, the newest addition to the Honda lineup is set to make a huge splash.
2016 Honda HR-V Powertrain and Trims
Under the hood of Honda’s newest crossover vehicle is a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine borrowed from the 2015 Honda Civic. The engine produces 138 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque, providing drivers with ample acceleration and control. Coupled with either a continuously variable transmission or a six-speed manual, the powertrain uses top-of-the-line Honda tools to maximize both power and efficiency.
The Honda HR-V is available in three different trims for different kinds of drivers:
- The Honda HR-V LX trim includes a 5-inch color LCD screen, remote entry, Bluetooth and USB audio interface, and a 60/40 split with a 2nd-row Magic Seat.
- The Honda HR-V EX trim adds heated front seats, a 7-inch touchscreen, Honda LaneWatch, Pandora compatibility, and push button start tech.
- The Honda HR-V EX-L Navi trim pulls out all the stops with a leather-trimmed interior, HD radio and Sirius XM radio, roof rails, and the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System with voice recognition.
Standard features on all models include alloy wheels, full power accessories, a rearview camera, and Bluetooth phone connectivity.
Honda HR-V Performance and Design
Looking at the new 2016 Honda HR-V is like looking at a slightly smaller Honda CR-V. It shares a chassis with the Honda Fit, however, as well as its interior seating versatility. The 2nd row MagicSeat folds down to max out storage space at almost 59 cubic feet. This vehicle is perfect for those who need extra room, but not so much extra room that it would take away from a compact’s convenient size and notable efficiency.
The 2016 Honda HR-V gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway,* making it a very respectable vehicle in terms of fuel efficiency. And it comes in a plethora of color combinations to boot.
