Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

What you must know before buying the Honda HR-V

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - January 9, 2020
  • 2020 Honda HR-V is here
  • Up to $1,200 off (2019)
  • Financing: 1.9% for 36 mo. (2019)
  • Lease: From $189 per mo. (2019)

Most deals carry over again:

The 2019 HR-V, which gains standard Honda Sensing on EX and higher models and loses the optional manual transmission, is still available, but inventory can be light due to low profit margins. These low margins also lead to limited offers that don't add much value.

The carryover 2020 Honda HR-V is hitting showrooms now. It suffers the same profit-margin issues as the 2019 model and has no promotional offers in its debut month.

Offers mentioned below are available nationally and are good through March 2, 2020 unless otherwise noted.

Unadvertised savings:

The 2019 HR-V continues with unadvertised dealer cash incentives worth up to $1,200 off EX and higher trims and $800 off LX and Sport grades. Buyers can combine this incentive with the low APR and lease cash deals below.

Keep in mind that the dealerships are not required to pass these unadvertised dealer cash incentives to you, so shop around for the best deal.

There are no unadvertised dealer cash incentives for the 2020 HR-V.

Honda also offers its standard $500 bonuses for recent college graduates and members of the military on the 2019 and 2020 HR-V.

Finance from 1.9% APR:

Honda continues to offer three APR deals on the 2019 HR-V for qualified buyers: 1.9% APR for 36 months, 2.9% APR for 60 months, and 3.9% for 72 months. These offers are strong, and buyers can combine them with the $800-$1,200 unadvertised incentives above.

There are no APR offers on the 2020 Honda HR-V.

Lease from $189 per mo.:

The 2019 Honda HR-V continues with the same promotional lease.

These 36-month lease deals start from $189 per month with $2,299 due at signing on the LX trim and top out at $259 per month with $2,399 ($200 reduction) due at signing on the EX-L AWD model.

You can see the full list of promotional lease offers in the table below. With effective monthly costs of $253 to $326, these are good values relative to their MSRPs.

2020 Honda HR-V Overview

Neil Cumins
Automotive Editor

What's New

Following an extensive refresh last year, the 2020 Honda HR-V carries over with minimal changes. This means that the new Sport and Touring trims are still around, and that the Honda Sensing suite of active safety features is still standard on EX models and above.

Choosing Your Honda HR-V

The HR-V is available in five trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Pricing starts at $21,915 including destination for the base LX and reaches $29,985 for the Touring.

Engine Choices

All Honda HR-V models are powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. Its 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque are fed through a continuously variable transmission.

Front-wheel drive is standard on all but the Touring, but all-wheel drive, which is what the range-topping trim comes standard with, is available for $1,500.

The HR-V earns an EPA-estimated 28 miles per gallon city, 34 mpg highway, and 30 combined with FWD, or 27/31/29 mpg (city/highway/combined) with AWD.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The five-seat HR-V has varying cargo capacity, depending on the model. Front-wheel-drive variants offer 24.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seat, or 58.8 with it folded down. These figures drop to 23.2/57.6 cubic feet on AWD LX and Sport models, or to 23.2/55.9 cubic feet on AWD EX, EX-L, and Touring models.

Safety Features

Every Honda HR-V has a multi-angle rearview camera, but only the EX and above get standard active safety features. The top three trims come equipped with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and automatic high beams.

Despite this fact, it still carries a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA and a Top Safety Pick designation from the IIHS.


The standard HR-V infotainment system is only 5 inches with Bluetooth but without smartphone integration, but this is only the case on the base model, thankfully. The rest of the lineup features a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Pandora compatibility.

EX and EX-L models further add satellite radio and HD radio, while only the Touring gets navigation with voice recognition and digital traffic reports.

LX - From $21,915

There’s no getting away from the fact LX models are sparsely equipped. However, they do ride on 17-inch alloy wheels and have LED daytime running lights. There’s remote entry to the cabin, which contains air conditioning, cruise control, and power windows.

Sport - From $23,615

The extra $1,700 over LX trim is more than justified on Sport models, which are the first to receive the larger touchscreen. There’s leather on the steering wheel and shift knob, sport pedals, 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, fog lights, and gloss black detailing.

EX - From $25,065

EX models have a particularly impressive set of specifications compared to Sport trim, despite losing the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The foremost of the upgrades is Honda Sensing, but that's far from all it adds.

The front seats are heated, there’s a one-touch power moonroof, full climate control, and a push-button start. Rear privacy glass joins smart entry with walk-away door locking on the standard feature list.

EX-L - From $26,665

The L in EX-L stands for leather, as this trim adds leather upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob over the EX. An auto-dimming rearview mirror also comes standard.

Touring - From $29,985

The Touring is the only HR-V available exclusively as an AWD model, riding on machine-finished alloys with gloss gray inserts. There’s navigation with voice recognition, and eight-way power adjustment for the driver’s seat. The headlights and fog lights are now LED, as well.

CarsDirect Tip

The absence of Honda Sensing on LX and Sport models means the 2020 Honda HR-V EX is the first trim that offers enough safety features to reassure buyers of a family crossover. The EX-L offers little beyond leather, and the Touring struggles to justify a premium of almost $5,000 over the EX.
