    2016 Honda HR-V OVERVIEW

    Compact crossovers recently surpassed midsize sedans as the bestselling class of vehicle. With that market firmly established, automakers are betting on even smaller models to become the next big thing. Honda enters the sweepstakes this year with the HR-V, a subcompact that retains the basic crossover qualities that won over buyers years ago.

    What's New for 2016

    The HR-V is an all-new model.

    Choosing Your Honda HR-V

    The HR-V is based on the Honda Fit, and will remind you of a seven-tenths scale model of the brand's larger and wildly popularly CR-V. Like its big brother, the HR-V holds an astonishing amount of cargo for its size -- up to 59 cubic feet. That puts it in front of the new breed of extra-small crossovers, and even ahead of some compacts.

    The rear seat easily accommodates two adults -- three-across seating is only practical with children. The seat itself folds down as expected, but can also fold up and flip backward, leaving a deep storage well in its place, a feature Honda calls Magic Seat.

    Every HR-V is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder good for 141 horsepower, about what you would expect in this type of vehicle. A six-speed manual transmission comes standard, and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is available for $800. The CVT is required with the optional all-wheel drive system, which we consider a bargain at $1,250.

    You can expect 28 mpg in combined driving with the six-speed, and a class-leading 31 mpg with the CVT. Heavier all-wheel drive models deliver a still-impressive 29 mpg.

    Comfort and convenience features will be determined by trim level:


    Gets all the basics like power windows and locks, air conditioning and a four-speaker sound system. There are a few surprising touches for a base model, including a rearview camera, 17-inch wheels, and Bluetooth phone and audio.


    Tacks on heated front seats, a sunroof, automatic climate control, rear privacy glass, keyless ignition and blind spot monitoring.

    EX-L Navi

    Comes standard with the CVT, plus a leather interior, navigation, and HD and satellite radio.

    There are no individual options for the HR-V beyond the usual dealer-installed accessories.

    CarsDirect Tip

    There's a $2,050 price difference between the LX and EX, which is small enough for us to recommend using the EX as your starting point. Its upgrades hit all the right spots, making the HR-V feel like a complete crossover that you can live with for a long time.
