Overview

What's New

Honda has introduced a fully-redesigned HR-V for 2023. The subcompact SUV grows in size, gains a new engine, receives a more contemporary design, and arrives with more tech features. More importantly, the HR-V moves to share the same platform as the fully redesigned Civic. The full redesign makes the HR-V more competitive in the expanding class.

Choosing Your Honda HR-V

Honda offers the 2023 HR-V in three trims: LX, Sport, and EX-L. Pricing for the LX starts at $24,895 (with destination) and goes up to $28,695 for the EX-L.

Engine Choices

Under the hood, the HR-V comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s borrowed from the Civic. The engine is rated at 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is standard. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available for $1,500 throughout the lineup.

Official fuel economy figures for the 2023 HR-V aren’t available yet. Honda believes the subcompact SUV will be able to get up to 26 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined with FWD. AWD models have an estimated combined fuel economy rating of 27 mpg.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

While the HR-V still offers seating for up to five people, the SUV’s larger body results in more cargo area than before. With the rear seats in place, the HR-V offers up to 24.4 cubic feet of cargo space. Folding the rear seats down expands the total cargo capacity to 55.1 cubic feet of space.

Safety Features

Every HR-V now comes with Honda Sensing as standard equipment. Standard safety features include adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, traffic jam assist, automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection lane departure warning, a driver attention monitor, and lane-keeping assist. Blind-spot monitoring is standard starting on the Sport trim.

Connectivity

On the tech front, the HR-V now comes standard with a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. A 7-inch digital instrument cluster, Bluetooth, four-audio speakers, and two USB ports are also standard.

The Sport trim gets six audio speakers as standard. Moving up to the EX-L brings a 9-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, eight audio speakers, and a wireless charging pad.

2023 Honda HR-V LX – MSRP From $24,895

2023 Honda HR-V Sport – MSRP From $26,895

The mid-level Sport adds 18-inch wheels, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a remote engine start.

2023 Honda HR-V EX-L – MSRP From $28,695

The range-topping EX-L comes with leather upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and parking sensors.

CarsDirect Tip

While the 2023 Honda HR-V’s EX-L trim comes with enough features to justify its high starting price, we think the Sport trim is the best choice for most consumers. It also looks the best with slightly more aggressive styling and standard 18-inch wheels, though most people will appreciate that the Sport trim comes with blind-spot monitoring and heated front seats.

Much Needed Redesign. After seven long years, Honda has finally introduced a fully redesigned HR-V for the 2023 model year. Unlike the outgoing model, the fully redesigned HR-V utilizes the platform from the new Civic. This has allowed the subcompact SUV to grow dramatically in size. The 2023 HR-V is 9.4 inches longer and 2.6 inches wider. The result of moving to the Civic’s platform results in an HR-V that’s more spacious for passengers than before and is more enjoyable to drive.

Honda has also updated the HR-V’s powertrain, borrowing the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine from the Civic, as well as the compact’s infotainment system. The 2023 HR-V also comes with Honda’s latest version of its Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety features.

All of the changes result in an HR-V that’s better in nearly every single way than before. While some find the design of the SUV odd, we think it looks far better than the outgoing model, so it’s a win in our book. Toyota has smartly taken to calling its SUV version of the Corolla, the Corolla Cross. If Honda were to follow the same playbook, it would call the new HR-V the Civic Cross.

Still Roomy For Passengers. The HR-V’s larger body results in more space for passengers. Compared to last year, the 2023 HR-V has more front legroom, front hip room, and rear shoulder room. These come at the expense of front and rear headroom, as well as rear legroom. The good news is that the areas where the HR-V is smaller than before have only seen marginal drops in space. So, the HR-V actually feels roomier on the inside than before, though we suspect that the new design might have something to do with it.

The more upscale interior design also creates a nicer place for passengers. The overall design is nearly identical to the Civic’s with a stylish dashboard and straightforward controls. Passengers will find the HR-V’s seats to be both comfortable and supportive with plenty of padding for long drives.

The 2023 HR-V is no longer available with Honda’s Magic Seat, which gave the subcompact SUV the ability to hold large cargo and expanded the SUV’s cargo area. The change means the HR-V is down on cargo space compared to the previous model. The 2023 HR-V offers 24.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in place and a total of 55.1 cubic feet of cargo space. The old HR-V had up to 58.8 cubic feet of cargo space.

Massive Tech Upgrade. Dipping into the Civic’s available parts bin has done wonders for the HR-V on the tech front for 2023. Every model now comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a partially digital instrument cluster with a 7-inch screen, and an up-to-date infotainment system. The new infotainment system features large physical controls. Higher trims benefit from a 9-inch touchscreen that’s available with wireless smartphone compatibility, an eight-speaker audio system, and a wireless charging pad.

Compared to last year, this is a huge tech upgrade. But it doesn’t stop there. For 2023, every HR-V now comes with Honda’s newest Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety features. That means forward collision warning, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, traffic jam assist, a driver attention monitor, and traffic sign recognition are all standard. The main safety feature that’s optional is blind-spot monitoring.

While some of the HR-V’s competitors offer more high-tech features, these represent a large upgrade over last year’s HR-V. Additionally, it’s nice to see that every trim in the lineup now comes with Honda Sensing as standard equipment.

Improved Handling, Dull Engine. Under the hood, the 2023 HR-V now comes with a standard 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque. This new engine, which is borrowed from the Civic, is a large upgrade over the previous engine which was rated at 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque.

While the engine has more power than before, the HR-V still has slow acceleration in a straight line. The HR-V has added a few pounds for the new model year and the extra power just isn’t enough to result in a meaningful change in a straight line. This could be an issue with the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), though, which doesn’t behave nearly as well as a traditional gearbox.

For consumers that enjoy good-handling vehicles, the HR-V surprises with its newfound athleticism. The Civic platform does wonders for the vehicle, making the SUV enjoyable to drive around corners. The HR-V’s ride has also been improved, as the SUV is comfortable on a variety of different roads.

Final Thoughts. With the full redesign for the 2023 Honda HR-V, the Japanese automaker hasn’t completely changed the subcompact SUV’s purpose or functionality but has created a more well-rounded SUV that fixes a lot of the old model’s flaws. The SUV still lags behind the competition on the performance front but retains a roomy interior, and gains modern tech features and a more capable chassis. The changes result in a subcompact SUV that’s far better than before.

The Mazda CX-30 is still the star of the segment. It offers athletic performance, a luxurious cabin, a generous list of standard features, and an available turbocharged engine that makes 250 hp. It’s not as spacious as the HR-V, but the CX-30 more than makes up for it.

The Hyundai Kona has a far more aggressive design than the HR-V, an optional 10.3-inch touchscreen, a long list of standard features, and a standard engine that makes 147 hp. The Kona is available in a wide range of trims that include the sporty Kona N that’s a track-oriented monster with 276 hp.
