Honda HR-V Powertrain Review

2020 Honda HR-V Engine Specs

Let's start with the powertrain under the hood of this versatile SUV. Suitable for days at the office and adventures on the open road, the 2020 Honda HR-V balances drivability with power. It comes standard with the following specs:

  • 1.8-liter I-4 engine
  • 141 horsepower
  • 127 lb-ft of torque.

It smooths out the ride by pairing with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that also maximizes on efficiency. In fact, it gets you up to an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 28 MPG city and 34 MPG highway on the LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L trim levels when equipped with front-wheel drive (FWD).1

FWD comes standard, but many local drivers like the available real time AWD (all-wheel drive) system. This includes the Intelligent Control System™, which actively monitors your roadway conditions. If it detects wheelslip or hazardous conditions like snow or rain, it'll automatically adjust your torque distribution to help you keep a strong grip on the road.

With AWD, you'll get an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of up to 27 MPG city and 31 MPG highway on the LX trim level.1

For an extra thrill, switch into Sport mode. This will improve acceleration, overtaking, and steering responsiveness and add even more energy to your everyday drives.

Driver-Assist Features

If you're like so many local drivers, then safety is on your mind when you're shopping for your next set of wheels. We're happy to report that the 2020 HR-V offers several driver-assist features designed to improve driver and passenger safety when you hit the road.

These features are part of the available Honda Sensing® suite, which includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Forward Collision Warning

It also comes with available features, like Honda LaneWatch™ and Auto High-Beam Headlights, to improve visibility.

When your turn signal is engaged, Honda LaneWatch™ transforms the touchscreen display in the center stack into a live video feed of your right blind spot. This is meant to provide a clearer view of the road when changing lanes in well-travelled areas.

Auto High-Beam Headlights also help you see better when driving at night. These automatically turn your high beams on-and-off based on the flow of oncoming cars and other traffic patterns.

Interior Technology: 2020 HR-V

We already mentioned the touchscreen display briefly, so let's go ahead and elaborate on that a bit. The 2020 Honda HR-V has an available 7-inch touch-screen display in the center stack that acts as your command center for connectivity and entertainment.

It's compatible with available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. These features provide full smartphone integration with your vehicle by allowing you to access optimized apps through your infotainment display. Apps you can use include:

  • Audio books
  • Internet radio streaming
  • Navigation
  • Phone contacts

Bluetooth® wireless device connectivity comes standard as well, so you can safely answer hands-free phone calls while on the go.

The Touring trim also includes an available integrated navigation system. It features Voice Recognition, which allows you to input a destination with just the sound of your voice. This allows you to adjust your route mid-drive, without taking your hands off the wheel.

Honda HR-V Interior Dimensions

2020 Honda HR-V Interior

Since we're already in the cabin, let's have a look around. The Honda HR-V is a compact SUV. However, it feels incredibly spacious when you take the wheel.

The HR-V features two rows of seats that can easily accommodate up to five passengers, including the driver. Passengers get the following dimensions to work with:

  • Headroom (front/rear): 39.5/38.3 inches
  • Legroom (front/rear): 41.2/39.3 inches

These dimensions stretch out over up to 100.1 cubic feet of passenger volume in total. It's important to note that the passenger volume is 96.1 cubic feet if you choose to equip your SUV with the available One-Touch Power Moonroof.

The moonroof is a favorite feature among local drivers because it lets in extra fresh air and sunlight while you cruise down the open highway. It's a great way to get closer to the outdoors, even while you're behind the wheel.

In addition to passenger space, this SUV gives you up to 24.3 cubic feet of trunk volume behind the second row. If you need more room, fold down the rear seats to open up the full cargo volume of 58.8 cubic feet.

Exterior Style Elements

One of the most fun parts about choosing a new car is deciding what color you want it to be. The 2020 Honda HR-V gives you eight great colors to pick from to suit your personal style, including:

  • Aegean Blue Metallic
  • Orangeburst Metallic
  • Modern Steel Metallic

In addition to the paint, you'll get plenty of useful exterior features, like available heated body-colored power side mirrors. These can help you melt away stubborn ice or snow when you head out for your morning commute in the wintertime.Will you choose a more classic color, like Crystal Black Pearl, or will you go for an eye-catching hue, like Milano Red? The choice is yours!

A body colored rear roofline spoiler is also a standard accent. In addition to looking good, the rear spoiler helps to reduce wind resistance and improve fuel economy. Available roof rails are another useful exterior tool. They complement the interior cargo space by letting you pack more on the roof.

We love using the roof rails on our SUVs for larger items like bikes, kayaks and canoes, and even skis!
