According to the Edmunds.com, a premier website for automobile enthusiasts, the Honda HR-V is getting rave reviews for its exterior and interior offerings. The 2016 Honda HR-V will offer added room for passengers, and Edmunds specifically mentions drivers will love the “exceptional cabin versatility” in Honda’s latest crossover SUV model, the Honda HR-V.

What the Reviewers Say

Experts predict the Honda HR-V will be hugely popular for those with small families as the 2016 Honda HR-V is a smaller version of the Honda CR-V. The Honda HR-V is right above the Honda Fit and right below the CR-V in size. The HR-V is 10” shorter in overall length, 1.5” shorter in height and 2” narrower than the CR-V; the HR-V offers an alternative for those who need space for passengers without the cost of a family-sized vehicle.

The new crossover also mimics the Honda Fit’s interior flexibility, with rear seatbacks that fold flat and seat cushions that can fold up from the floor. The passenger seat can also lay nearly flat, creating a cargo channel from the tailgate to the dash. When folded, the HR-V’s rear seats produce 59 cubic feet of cargo space, which is actually not much less than midsize crossover vehicles like the Chevrolet Equinox. Fold the rear seats up and there’s still 24 cubic feet for luggage, groceries and gear.

The 2016 Honda HR-V is offered in the LX, EX and EX-L trims. Standard equipment on all models includes alloy wheels, full power accessories, a rearview camera, Bluetooth phone connectivity and Pandora radio. Features on the higher trims include keyless entry and ignition, a sunroof, heated front seats for those cold, winter nights, leather upholstery, satellite and HD radio, a navigation system that’s fully integrated and a 7” touchscreen display that is super user friendly.

The 2016 HR-V has the same chassis as the Honda Fit, but under the hood, it has the Civic’s 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. It’s rated at 138 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque, which is slightly less than the Honda Civic.
