As you’re driving around the Bloomington, Ellettsville, and Bedford areas considering the upgrade of your current vehicle, have you taken notice of the Honda HR-V? Relatively new on the scene, having first been produced for the 2016 model year, it’s already become a fan favorite. It’s easy to see why; it offers spaciousness, versatility, and efficiency in one compact package.

Engine Specs and Performance
Available in five trim levels, the Honda HR-V is built using a standard inline 4-cylinder engine that is capable of getting up to 141 horsepower. You can find out more about what this engine can do by reading through one of our vehicle reviews. You’ll have plenty of torque and performance to get you where you need to go.
In addition to the powerful performance of the HR-V, you can also count on not having to stop for gas as often. This compact crossover gets an EPA-estimated* 28 miles per gallon in the city streets and 34 miles per gallon on the highway with the two-wheel drive model. When considering whether or not to upgrade to the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ that is available with every trim, our reviews will prove quite helpful.
Interior Room and Cargo Space
Part of the reason that many drivers choose to upgrade to a crossover vehicle is the ability to add more space with the same level of maneuverability. In the front seat, you’ll be able to relax and enjoy 39.5 inches of headroom and 41.2 inches of legroom. When you add in the higher vantage point, you’ll love driving the HR-V and our helpful interior reviews will tell you why.
In addition to the comfort level of yourself and your passengers, cargo space is also a major selling point of this vehicle. In the two-wheel drive model of the Honda HR-V, you’ll have 24.3 cubic feet of additional space in which to stow your luggage or several flats of spring flowers. Should you need more room, collapse the second row and you’ll have up to 57.6 cubic feet.
These days it’s easy to talk about all the technology that gets loaded into newer vehicles, because safety, comfort, convenience, and technology all go hand-in-hand. In the Honda HR-V, there is a wide array of technological features you’ll love, including Active Noise Cancellation for a quieter drive or Hill Start Assist to minimize the drift back on steep hills.
With the purchase of the EX level of the HR-V, you’ll be treated to the ultimate comfort of heated seats and the convenience of push-button start. However, the greatest advantage of the HR-V EX is the addition of the Honda Sensing® safety system that adds in:
- Lane Keeping Assist System
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Forward Collision Warning
