2020 Honda HR-V Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2020 Honda HR-V?

The Honda HR-V is a five-seat subcompact SUV that competes with the Chevrolet TraxJeep RenegadeMazda CX-3Nissan 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 2020 Honda HR-V?

There are no significant changes this year.

What Features in the 2020 Honda HR-V Are Most Important?

The Honda Sensing active safety system on EX and higher trim levels is a welcome feature. So is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity, which goes in all trims but the base LX. The multiposition 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 navigation are available.

Should I Buy the 2020 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.

Most reliable car I’ve owned.

by SaraMock1 from Talladega AL on December 20, 2020

I love the sporty look with the comfort and durability it offers. It’s excellent on gas and can haul loads in the back up to 6’. The seats lift up or lay flat. Very versatile! Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
