Overview

What's New

With no mechanical or trim revisions, the only change to report on HR-V models for the 2024 model year is another price increase. Otherwise, it’s business as usual for this three-trim range, with a solitary engine and gearbox combination.

Choosing Your Honda HR-V

Your only choices in terms of HR-V ownership relate to the three trim levels and the option of adding AWD for $1,500. Prices start at $25,395 for a front-wheel-drive LX, with Sport models retailing at $26,945; $28,945 is enough to secure an EX-L model.

Engine Choices

The HR-V is powered by a two-liter gas engine, producing 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque, fed to the front wheels through a CVT transmission. AWD is optional on every trim.

The FWD HR-V returns an EPA-estimated 26 miles per gallon city, 32 mpg highway, and 28 combined. AWD models drop slightly to 25/30/27 respectively.

Engine TypeHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (City/Highway/Combined)
2.0-liter158 hp138 lb-ft26/32/28 mpg (FWD), 25/30/27 mpg (AWD)

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Cargo capacity for the five-seater HR-V stands at 24.4 cu ft with the rear seats in place, and 55.1 cu ft once they’re dropped.

Safety Features

It’s to Honda’s credit that every HR-V receives the same level of active and passive safety kit. The former extends to brakeforce distribution, forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, and lane departure warnings. Passive safety includes ten airbags, while driver assistance tech encompasses lane-keeping assistance and adaptive cruise control, traffic sign recognition, and auto high beams.

Connectivity

Unlike safety, there are pronounced differences between the three trims in terms of infotainment. LX models make do with a four-speaker stereo, whereas Sport buyers receive six speakers and EX-L models are equipped with eight. Flagship HR-Vs are the only ones with satellite or HD radio, wireless device charging, and a nine-inch touchscreen. While every trim boasts smartphone mirroring, EX-L is unique in providing it wirelessly. LX and Sport are equipped with a disappointing seven-inch touchscreen, but they do get a variety of USB and 12V ports throughout the cabin.

Honda HR-V

2024 Honda HR-V LX – MSRP from $25,395

The most affordable HR-V is generously equipped, with power side mirrors, automatic LED headlights, and remote keyless entry. A seven-inch digital information screen joins adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition on the list of driver aids, while the cabin receives automatic climate and push-button start.

No packages are offered on the LX trim.

2024 Honda HR-V Sport – MSRP from $26,945

The only HR-V to ride on 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels, Sport models are distinguished by rear privacy glass, a chrome exhaust finisher, and gloss black side mirrors. Inside, you’ll find power windows with one-touch up/down, a leather-wrapped shift knob and steering wheel facing onto contrasting orange seat stitching, heated front seats, and an upgraded speaker setup.

Other than paying $550 to add blind spot monitoring and cross-traffic alerts, there are no packages on Sport models.

2024 Honda HR-V EX-L – MSRP from $28,945

The price increase over Sport models is more than justified by front and rear parking sensors, a power tilt-and-slide moonroof, dual-zone climate, and ambient LED lighting. This is the only HR-V with leather seating (including eight-way power adjustment for the driver), wireless device charging, satellite/HD radio, and a nine-inch touchscreen controlling the eight-speaker audio system.

Blind-spot monitoring is the only upgrade offered to EX-L buyers.

CarsDirect Tip

Unless you’re on a strict budget, it’s worth upgrading to EX-L trim for the added features it brings compared to Sport models, especially, considering the relatively modest price hike.

Roomy cabin underneath a stylish body. Last year’s full redesign for the 2023 Honda HR-V saw the subcompact SUV inch closer to compact SUVs in terms of size. The HR-V measures 179.8 inches in length, putting it close to compact SUVs like the Mazda CX-5, Ford Escape, and Toyota RAV4. Thanks to the HR-V’s relatively large size, the subcompact SUV offers roomy accommodations for passengers.

In the front, passengers get 39.4 inches of headroom and 41.9 inches of legroom. Usually, sitting in the back of a subcompact SUV would be seen as a curse, but it’s not a bad thing in the HR-V. Passengers in the back get 38 inches of headroom and 37.7 inches of legroom.

In addition to having a generous amount of interior space, the HR-V also has some comfortable seats. Passengers in the front may find the lack of lumbar support adjustment to be disappointing, but they’re still comfortable for daily use. The rear seats are, surprisingly, even more comfortable than the front seats.

Good value, but not as affordable as before. For 2024, Honda has increased the HR-V’s pricing. The subcompact SUV now starts at $25,395 (with destination), which represents an increase of $500 for the base trim. Despite the price increase, the HR-V continues to be a good value option.

We’re particularly impressed with the HR-V’s tech features. The SUV comes with a seven-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, three USB ports, and four audio speakers. If you’re looking to get the most for your money, you’ll want to explore the Sport. It starts at $26,945, or $1,550 more than the base LX, and adds useful features like keyless entry, heated front seats, and six audio speakers.

Honda HR-V

Honda saves its available nine-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a wireless charging pad, eight audio speakers, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and satellite radio for the range-topping EX-L. That trim also feels the nicest with dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, ambient interior lighting, and a moonroof. It’s not egregiously priced, either, as it costs $28,945.

Subpar fuel economy and cargo capacity. With the redesign, Honda stopped offering the HR-V with a second-row Magic Seat. The versatile rear seat allowed owners to flip the bottom cushions up for more cargo space or be folded down for a flat floor. Without the Magic Seat, the HR-V trails key rivals when it comes to cargo capacity.

Honda’s smallest SUV offers up to 24.4 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats in place and 55.1 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded. Those figures aren’t bad for the class, but trail rivals like the Kia Soul, Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taos, and Toyota Corolla Cross.

The fuel economy for the HR-V is also slightly behind segment leaders. Given its compact size and small engine, this is surprising. With front-wheel drive, the HR-V is rated at up to 28 mpg combined. Not only does that figure make the HR-V less efficient than others in the subcompact class, but it also makes the subcompact less efficient than the larger Honda CR-V. If you’re looking to save money on fuel, we recommend looking at one of the HR-V’s rivals.

Spirited handling clashes with dull acceleration. Subcompact SUVs aren’t known for having spirited performance, but the 2024 HR-V really disappoints with its performance. The SUV comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 158 horsepower. The engine is paired with a CVT.

While 158 hp doesn’t sound like a small figure, the HR-V takes around nine seconds to get to 60 mph. That makes it slower than options like the Mazda CX-30 and even the Hyundai Kona, which has less power. It’s easy to blame the HR-V’s CVT for the lack of oomph, as it fails to bring the engine to life.

The engine may be one of the HR-V’s weak spots, but the HR-V’s underpinning which is borrowed from the Civic is a high spot. The HR-V is enjoyable to drive around corners and handles rough roads well.

Final thoughts. The 2024 Honda HR-V remains a solid choice in the class, but without a more powerful engine, an available hybrid model, or any standout features, it gets lost in the packed class. It’s not a bad choice, but it’s not the best one, either. Plus, the increase in pricing makes the HR-V less of a value option than last year.

The fully redesigned Chevrolet Trax arrives as a serious competitor to the HR-V. It has an aggressive design, roomy rear seats, a traditional six-speed automatic transmission, a combined fuel economy rating of up to 30 mpg, and an available 11-inch touchscreen.

We could sing the praises of the Mazda CX-30 all day long. The CX-30 stands out because of its athletic handling, standard 8.8-inch display, available 250-horsepower engine, standard all-wheel-drive system, and premium interior.
