What Is the 2019 Honda HR-V?
The Honda HR-V is a five-seat subcompact SUV that competes with the Chevrolet Trax, Jeep Renegade, Mazda CX-3, Nissan Kicks and others. It is related to the Honda Fit hatchback. The HR-V is powered by a 141-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that teams with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available.
What's New on the 2019 Honda HR-V?
A six-speed manual transmission is no longer offered, so all trim levels have a CVT. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity are included in an updated touchscreen multimedia system on all trims except the base LX. The Honda Sensing active safety system is now included on EX and higher trim levels; it includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist and other features. All trims receive front and rear styling updates, and new Sport and Touring trim levels join the lineup.
What Features in the 2019 Honda HR-V Are Most Important?
The addition of the Honda Sensing safety system on EX and higher trims is a welcome update, and the updated multimedia system fills another gap by including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The multi-position second-row Magic Seat provides unmatched interior versatility in the subcompact SUV class. Features such as leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, a power moonroof, automatic climate control, keyless access with push-button start and a navigation system are available.
Should I Buy the 2019 Honda HR-V?
The HR-V's roomy, versatile cabin and large cargo area are advantages over most subcompact SUVs, and its interior quality and estimated gas mileage — especially with front-wheel drive — are additional strengths. Modest acceleration is its biggest drawback.
