2020 Honda HR-V: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - March 27, 2019

Model Preview

Having just debuted in 2016 and received front- and rear-end refreshes in 2019, we expect the 2020 Honda HR-V to hit showrooms as a carryover vehicle.

As a carryover model, we expect the 2020 Honda HR-V to arrive with the same basic design it’s had since 2016, save for the light refreshes it received in 2019. These carryover looks will include its Honda Fit-like styling with short rear overhang, sharp hose, hidden rear door handles, and new-for-2019 front and rear fascias. The 2019 model also received a new Sport trim with black accents and 18-inch wheel that we expect to remain in the 2020 HR-V lineup.

Inside, the current HR-V gained a new infotainment system with a physical volume knob in place of clunky touch-sensitive buttons, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The new-for-2019 HR-V Sport’s cabin added a black headliner, gloss-black trim, and sport pedals. We expect all these to remain the same in the 2020 HR-V.

Because there are no updates, we also expect the 2020 HR-V’s standard features to remain the same. If this proves accurate, it will come standard with a 5-inch infotainment display, power windows, power door locks, a four-speaker audio system, Bluetooth streaming audio, and more.

The powertrain is another area we expect to remain unchanged in the 2020 Honda HR-V, as we look for it to continue with the same 141-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission. The only powertrain variation will be the paddle shifters in Sport and higher trims and optional all-wheel drive.

Riding a wave of “Good” crash test ratings and “Superior” front-crash avoidance, the current Honda HR-V is an IIHS Top Safety Pick. Keep in mind, though, this is only valid on EX and higher trims that include standard automatic emergency braking.

Piggybacking with AEB are other safety gizmos like forward collision warning, lane-departure warning, road-departure mitigation, lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and a blind-spot camera. We expect these safety ratings and features to carry over in the 2020 HR-V.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official release date for the 2020 Honda HR-V, but we expect to see it in showrooms in summer of 2019 like in previous years.

With no changes coming, we expect pricing to remain similar to the current model’s MSRP range of $21,565 to $29,585.

The 2020 Honda HR-V will compete with the Hyundai Kona, Chevy Trax, and Mazda CX-3.
