Honda HR-V: It Looks as Good as it Drives
17-inch alloy wheels. LED brake lights. Heated side mirrors on the EX and EX-L trims. What isn’t there to get excited about with this crossover? Its exterior is everything that you want in a modern vehicle: sleek, shiny, and sexy. It even comes with an aggressively-horizontal grille that sits directly under its renowned Honda symbol. In other words, your friends are almost guaranteed to do a double take as you drive by.
Furthermore, the HR-V is available in a bunch of different hot colors. We’re talking about Aegean Blue, Misty Green, Mulberry, Milano Red, Crystal Black, Modern Steel, Lunar Silver, and White Orchid. But, remember that we don’t carry all these coats at all times, so check out our online inventory today.

2018 HR-V Performance: Versatile and Prepared
However, when it comes to a crossover, we’re well aware that good looks aren’t the only important factor. Drivers want a vehicle that can roar; drivers want a vehicle that can work. And the HR-V is here.
First and foremost is its In-Line-Cylinder 16-Valve SOHC i-VTEC engine, which delivers as much as 141 horsepower at 6,500 RPM, and as much as 127 lb-ft of torque at 4,300 RPM. Redline is at 6,700 RPM.
You can pair that engine with either a 6-Speed Manual Transmission or a CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) with Sport Mode and available Dual-Mode Paddle Shifters, depending on your trim.
And that’s without even getting into its traction-maximizing available All-Wheel Drive System, its max cargo capacity of up to 58.8 cubic feet, or its All-Season Floor Mats. This thing is ready to rock ‘n roll.
Out-of-this-world Fuel Efficiency, too…
Last, but certainly not least, we’ll touch upon efficiency. After all, the 2018 Honda HR-V is a crossover. While you surely want the power and performance of an SUV, you want the MPG ratings of a car, right?
Luckily, it delivers, time and time again. With an EPA-estimated 25 city MPG and an EPA-estimated 33 highway MPG.¹, you don’t need to worry about throwing all your money down the gas pump1.
