2016 Honda HR-V: the new benchmark

2015-05-14

Unveiled at the International Auto Show in November, the Honda HR-V should be able to carve out an enviable position in a growing segment that is the subcompact SUV market. Better still, its popularity among consumers is virtually assured because of its ability to combine driving pleasure, fuel economy, interior space and luxury features.

The Honda HR-V 2016 is priced starting at $ 20,690. At that price, you get a manual transmission combined with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine developing 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. It is the same reliable, fuel-efficient, and lively engine that is found in the popular Honda Civic. For just over $ 20,000, buyers also get a Bluetooth phone system, a backup camera, cruise control and even heated seats. One must admit that when it comes to standard features, the HR-V certainly stands out.

Going back to the engine, its average fuel economy is stated at 7.6 liters per 100 kilometers while if you opt for AWD versions offered from $ 24,290, the average fuel consumption is stated at 8.1 liters 100 kilometers. Again, the HR-V family impresses with its ability to offer an AWD vehicle at competitive prices.

Some versions of the 2016 HR-V can be equipped with the LaneWatch blind-spot surveillance system. The latter uses a camera located under the right mirror to display an image of what is found on your right on the central screen. Leather seats, navigation system, sunroof, collision warning system and lane change warning, as well as automatic braking, may also be found on the new HR-V.

Inside, the most recent Honda SUV offers everything you need for family travel. This includes a backseat composed of Magic Seat seats that can be folded in different ways to increase the number of objects that may enter the vehicle. There is even a position that allows you to place plants or small trees without crushing them.

The trunk offers a 657-liter load capacity with all seats in place and up to 1,665 liters (front-wheel drive) with the seats folded. That's a lot, especially for a vehicle that is agile and compact when driving or parking in the city

In simple terms, the 2016 Honda HR-V has a lot to offer.
