2016 Honda HR-V
It's official: Small is in. Honda has built a compressed version of some of their most popular models for buyers who crave the look and utility of larger models without the larger footprint.
The 2016 Honda HR-V is at first glance a smaller version of the CR-V. The HR-V is, in fact, in between the subcompact Fit and below the CR-V. However, instead of using a shrunken CR-V chassis, the HR-V is built on an enlarged version of the Fit (which was redesigned for 2015 and made slightly shorter, wider and roomier, particularly for those in the rear seats). At 10 inches shorter in overall length, 1.5 inches shorter in height and 2 inches narrower than the CR-V, the HR-V offers an alternative for those who need space for passengers and gear without the family-sized footprint.
The new crossover also incorporates the Fit's interior flexibility, with rear seatbacks that fold flat and seat cushions that can fold up from the floor. The passenger seat can also lay nearly flat, creating a cargo channel from the tailgate to the dash. Folding the HR-V's rear seats yields an impressive 59 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold the rear seats up and there's still a useful 24 cubic feet for luggage and groceries.View Inventory
The 2016 HR-V might share the Fit's chassis, but under the hood it borrows the Civic's 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. It's rated at 138 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque. The four-cylinder pairs with either a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a six-speed manual. However, you can only get the manual with front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is an option and works by operating in front-wheel-drive mode until the car senses slippage and sends power to the rear wheels to maintain traction.
The 2016 Honda HR-V is offered in LX, EX and EX-L trims. Standard equipment includes alloy wheels, full power accessories, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone connectivity and Pandora Internet radio.
Features on upper trims include keyless entry and ignition, a sunroof, heated front seats, leather upholstery, satellite and HD radio, a fully integrated navigation system and a 7-inch touchscreen display.
The 2016 Honda HR-V offers antilock brakes, stability and traction control, front-side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, hill-start assist and a multi-angle rearview camera. EX models come with Honda's LaneWatch blind-spot warning system, which displays an image from a camera in the passenger-side mirror on the center console display.
