The 2017 Honda HR-V Delivers Tons of Utility

You don’t have to purchase a full-size SUV to own a vehicle that offers plenty of utility! More and more Detroit area drivers are recognizing the advantages offered by the 2017 Honda HR-V, and we think that they have plenty of reasons to get excited. This year’s HR-V offers more passenger volume and cargo space than you’ll know what to do with, and its exceptional fuel economy is sure to save you money on all your adventures. Even in its baseline trim, the HR-V comes equipped with features and technologies that will let you push your limits and explore new horizons. Compact SUVs haven’t always been this spacious and powerful, but the Honda HR-V looks set to redefine what the members of this segment can do.

Drivetrain Composition and Efficiency

The 2017 Honda HR-V doesn’t need an enormous engine block to provide a touring experience that you’re sure to love. Underneath the hood of this compact SUV, you’ll find a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine, a 16-valve SOHC valvetrain, and in standard builds, a 6-speed manual transmission. Various technologies, including multi-point fuel injection and a drive-by-wire throttle system, help to maximize the utility of the HR-V’s engine, and allow it to generate 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque. Features like Hill Start Assist and Eco Coaching come standard, so you’ll be able to travel wherever your heart desires. HR-V models equipped with a 6MT get an impressive EPA-estimated 25 mpg city, 33 mpg highway, and 28 mpg!*

Although these mileage ratings already designate the HR-V as one of the top vehicles in its class, we haven’t yet seen the limits of what this vehicle can do! In all three of its available trim levels, the HR-V can be upgraded with a continuously variable transmission that boosts fuel economy and provides additional drivetrain-enhancing options like Sport Mode. When equipped with a CVT, 2WD HR-V models provide an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city, 34 mpg on the highway, and 31 mpg combined.* Additionally, all CVT models come equipped with an ECON button that can limit your fuel consumption whenever you don’t need the HR-V’s full power. What’s more, you can exercise even more control by upgrading with dual-mode paddle shifters, available on the EX and standard on the EX-L Navi. Once you’ve equipped your HR-V with a CVT, you’ll also have the option to upgrade with Real Time AWD. Real Time AWD lowers your fuel economy slightly to an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city, 31 mpg highway, and 29 mpg combined,* but it also provides an intelligent control system that automatically increases rear-wheel traction when you need it.

Gear Up for Adventure: HR-V Interior and Cargo Storage Options

Honda HR-V

The 2017 Honda HR-V is just as efficient as many of its smaller competitors, but it also has interior space and cargo storage tools that rival those of full-size SUVs! Passengers will enjoy up to 100.1 cubic feet of space in its LX trim, and as much as 96.1 cubic feet in its EX and EX-L Navi trims. Although each of these options seats five people and comes equipped with 60/40-split rear bench seat, the amount of cargo space they offer vary depending on whether or not you opt for all-wheel drive. In 2WD models, the HR-V offers a minimum of 24.2 cubic feet and a maximum of 58.8 cubic feet. HR-V LX AWD models provide 23.2 cubic feet of cargo space with its seats upright and 57.6 cubic feet with its seats folded down. In EX and EX-L Navi trims, maximum cargo space is 55.9 cubic feet. Writing on the 2017 Honda HR-V, the folks at said that “It has unbeatable versatility thanks to the flat-folding rear seat and flip-up cushions.” We think you’ll be satisfied with your interior volume and cargo space no matter which HR-V trim you choose.
