Honda HR-V review

by Honda Dude from Lancaster New York | April 03, 2020

Nice SUV for the most part. I wish the thing had about 30 more HP since it is a bit on the sluggish side when taking off on a hill. The gas mileage is not what I have expected from a Honda, owning 8 of them in the past and present. It gets maybe 28 on a good day and drops to low 20's in the winter. My Subaru Crosstrek gets better mileage with a bigger engine and heavier vehicle and both are AWD.

fun to drive

This is the first subcompact SUV I've driven and owned. I've had it for just about four months, so not long enough for long-term feedback but long enough to know what I do and don't like. What I like the most (2018 LX AWD): -Styling: interior (especially the dashboard) and in particular, side and back outside profile. -Ability to fold up the back seats or lay them down for extra cargo space. Sometimes I fold up the back seats to store groceries rather than put them in the trunk space. I have also been able to fit a stationary bike in the back with no problem. -Pretty quiet cabin and smooth ride, especially having driven a 5th generation Subaru Legacy before the HR-V. -Deep cup holder. I travel with a 20oz YETI Rambler frequently, and this fits great in the cup holder. -Although it's been a quiet winter this year, in the snowstorms I drove it in, I felt confident in its capability. What I don't like as much: -Front legroom. I'm 6' 2", and while I fit comfortably in the chair, depending on how I am positioned, the legroom could feel slightly cramped. Of course, I could have chosen a different vehicle, but this car works so well for me that I'm willing to live with it. -The driver seat occasionally vibrates when at idle and it's a little annoying. -Maybe it's just me, but I find the ABS a little sensitive. Overall: I think people who haven't experienced a CVT before will have a more difficult time adjusting to this car. I've seen it criticized for lack of speed, but Honda never claimed this was supposed to be a fast car. It's been perfectly fine for me. So far this has been a dependable car and I have had no issues nor major complaints. Like most cars, likes and dislikes are subjective, whereas reliability and dependability are more objective. If this car fits your needs, get it.

2018 Honda HR-V Overview

The 2018 Honda HR-V is a subcompact crossover that seats five passengers. Though smaller in dimension, the HR-V still offers plenty of usable passenger and cargo space, especially considering it shares a platform with the Honda Fit. There is 24.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, which expands to 58.8 cubic feet with the rear seats flipped down (this beats the Fit and its 16.6/52.7 cubic feet). It competes with the Mazda CX-3 and Fiat 500X.

Three trims are available: the LX, EX, and EX-L.
