The HR-V also gets plenty of standard equipment. Even the base model gets cruise control, full power accessories, a 5-inch color display, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a CD player, rearview camera, and more.


Reviews

Don’t take our word for it – see what the reviews are saying about the 2016 Honda HR-V:
2016 Honda HR-V

  • Edmunds praised the HR-V for its “roomy interior and seating; versatile cargo loading thanks to unique rear seat; high fuel economy; [and] excellent outward visibility.” Edmunds editors also appreciated the vehicle’s “high fuel economy, a sporty driving feel, available all-wheel drive and a solid collection of tech and convenience features for the money.”
  • Kelley Blue Book reviewer Matt Degen said, “The HR-V aims to do more with less and largely succeeds thanks to its easy driving manners, good fuel economy and bigger-than-you-think interior.”
  • Forbes reviewer Jason Fogelson wrote at the Forbes Life blog that the “HR-V is good looking, fuel efficient and affordably priced.” He went on to praise the Honda strategy, saying, “By waiting for the market to get established, Honda has had a chance to benchmark the competition and come up with a winner. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a whole lot of HR-V compact crossovers on the road in the very near future.”
  • Cars.com senior editor Mike Hanley said that the 2016 Honda HR-V has “one of the roomiest – and most configurable – interiors in the class.”
  • Automobile editor Joseph Capparella said, “The more you look at the 2016 Honda HR-V in the context of Honda’s lineup, the more compelling it gets. For a similar price and only a small fuel-economy penalty compared with the Civic or the Fit, the 2016 Honda HR-V offers more cargo space, available all-wheel drive, a high seating position that everyone seems to love, and a more cocooned driving experience. It’s also more maneuverable, more efficient, and less expensive than the CR-V.”

Future Models

2016 Honda HR-VThe 2016 Honda HR-V is practically brand new – it was a brand new model for the 2016 model year. That might mean that big changes will be slow coming. There are a few important features missing from the HR-V, however, so we could expect to see some of the following changes that could come from the rest of the Honda lineup:

  • The Honda Sensing system is not currently offered. This system includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision prevention warning and automatic braking, lane departure warning and automatic braking, and it’s available in much of the Honda lineup. We expect Honda will rush to get it into the HR-V.
  • Honda could offer the same 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder that makes 174 hp in the Honda Civic in the new HR-V for both a power and efficiency upgrade in the small crossover.
  • The HR-V could easily get a hybrid electric powertrain in the near future.
