What it is: The HR-V is Honda’s entry in the growing field of subcompact SUVs. The five-seat HR-V is related to the Honda Fit hatchback and is built in the same Mexican assembly plant. Power comes from a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a manual transmission or a continuously variable automatic. All trim levels can be had with front- or all-wheel drive. Competitors include the Buick Encore, Chevrolet Trax, Jeep Renegade and Mazda CX-3.
There are no changes save a new wheel design that’s available on EX and EX-L trim levels.
