2016 Honda HR-V

Months of anticipation come to an end on May 15 when the exciting new 2016 Honda HR-V goes on sale here at Community Honda of Orland Park. We are expecting this wonderful subcompact urban crossover SUV to be a huge hit here at our Frankfort, IL area Honda dealership. With its sporty, coupe-like design, long list of standard features, built-in versatility, and outstanding fuel economy, the HR-V should have wide appeal among Chicagoland drivers of all kinds.

Sporty, Versatile, and Affordable

From its distinctive styling to its wide range of features, the newest addition to the Honda SUV lineup is a real standout in the popular entry-level crossover market. Comfortable and remarkably roomy, the new 2016 Honda HR-V is based upon the same platform as the Honda Fit, and it comes with the same innovative Magic Seat® which helps it to provide an impressive 59 cubic feet of cargo capacity!

There are three trim levels available—LX, EX, and EX-L Navi. Under the hood of each is a sophisticated and efficient 1.8L four-cylinder 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC® engine that delivers a peak 141 hp with 127 lb-ft of torque. Drivers from in and around Frankfort will have the choice of two refined Honda transmissions—a fine-tuned continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a sporty, short-shifting six-speed manual. You also have the choice between all-wheel drive and two-wheel drive models, but only the 2WD LX and EX models are available with the manual transmission.

The fuel economy of the HR-V is exceptional, with an EPA estimated 35 mpg highway* on the 2WD model with the CVT, meaning you’re going to save a lot at the pump.

Standard features include Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, a rearview camera, a push-button electric parking brake, Pandora® radio, and class-leading safety features.

Perhaps best of all is that the HR-V starts at $19,995 MSRP for the base model with front-wheel drive and either a six-speed manual transmission or continuously variable transmission, so you can look forward to getting a whole lot for your money when you choose the 2016 HR-V.

If you’re shopping for a used vehicle in the Frankfort area, then you had better come visit Community Honda of Orland Park. We have an extensive selection of the best used vehicles around, and, according to Consumer Reports, the Honda CR-V and the Honda Pilot should be at the top of your list of used SUVs if you’re in the market for a new vehicle for your family. These reliable, high-quality crossovers provide all the versatility and utility that Chicagoland drivers want.

CR-V and Pilot Named Top Used Buys Under $10k

Consumer Reports has advocated for used cars for a long time, and to make choosing the right one easy, the publication has compiled a list of the top choices in every segment, at a variety of price points.

“Every vehicle on this list performed well in our tests when it was new and has had above-­average reliability for the model years shown, based on our latest Annual Auto Survey,” said Consumer Reports. “Each also came standard with electronic stability control (ESC), unless otherwise noted. Consider these the used cars we’d recommend to our family and friends.”

Luckily, you don’t have to be family or friends of Consumer Reports editors to get the scoop. When it comes to used SUVs under $10,000, Consumer Reports chooses the Honda CR-V and the Honda Pilot. “Standard ESC and curtain air bags, combined with near-minivan levels of space, make the ­reliable CR-V a can’t-miss prospect,” said Consumer Reports. “For even more room, check out the eight-seat Honda Pilot with its smooth V6 acceleration and carlike handling.”

You might be curious to know what other cars landed on the Consumer Reports best used cars list – and we’ll tell you that many of them were made by Honda. Late Model Honda Civic and Honda Accord models were praised in the Small Car and Sedan segment priced at $15,000 to $20,000, while four different Acura models, the Honda luxury brand, made the list. So make sure you look for these high-quality used cars here at Community Honda of Orland Park.
