2020 Honda HR-V review: Our expert's take

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.

Hvr warnnningggg 2020

Serviced before 200 miles due to dashboard lights eliminating . I’ve never had this happen with a new vehicle. Vehicle has been “ in repair” for a week with no resolve


Have the car less then a week.

Smart looking. Very roomy for a car in such a small class. Handles very well and rides nice on most roads. Its a little bouncy on very bumpy roads which is to be expected for a small vehicle. We love it.
