Here’s what Cars.com wrote: “The HR-V’s innovative layout takes it a step further with a roomy, versatile cabin and large cargo area. Combined with a high-grade interior and good estimated gas mileage, the HR-V enters the segment poised to strongly challenge established and all-new models alike.”
Step up to the EX and you’ll get foglights, rear privacy glass, a sunroof, keyless ignition and entry, heated front seats, automatic climate control, a 7-inch touchscreen display, a six-speaker audio system, a passenger-side blind spot camera and HondaLink.
With the top-of-the-line EX-L Navi, you’ll enjoy an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather upholstery, satellite and HD radio, roof rails and a nav system.
Powering the 2016 Honda HR-V is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 141 horsepower and 127 lb.-ft. of torque. This block is mated to a standard six-speed manual transmission for LX and EX trims with front-wheel-drive. These trims have an optional CVT that’s standard for the front-wheel-drive EX-L Navi. Choose the CVT and you get the option of all-wheel drive for all trims.
The Honda HR-V includes standard safety gear such as stability control, traction control, antilock disc brakes, side curtain airbags, side airbags for the front seat and a rearview camera. EX and EX-L Navi trims get the LaneWatch blind-spot display standard.
The 2016 Honda HR-V Interior Is Designed For Comfort For Family and Friends
The 2016 Honda HR-V can seat five comfortably and is offered in three models: LX, EX and EX-L Navi. Entry-level LX trims get 17-inch alloys, a height-adjustable driver seat, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, a configurable 60/40-split folding rear seat, cruise control, power everything, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, a four-speaker audio setup with a CD player and USB port, a 5-inch display screen, and a rearview camera.
One standout feature on the HR-V is called a “Magic Seat.” No, it’s not a special place to entertain the kids by pulling rabbits out of a hat—it’s a rear seat that can be configured to easily carry large or long cargo items. Either of the 60/40-split rear seatbacks can be folded down nearly flat and flush with the low cargo floor. There’s no need to remove the head restraints; simply move them to their lowest position.
Edmunds tested an HR-V EX-L Navi with all-wheel drive, which took 124 feet to stop from 60 mph, which is a good showing for a vehicle in its class.
