The 2018 Honda HR-V Crossover is A Big Personality in a Compact Body

Today's "Compact" SUVs are about the size that "Midsize" used to be even a decade ago, so "Subcompact" SUVs have taken up the mantle of satisfying the needs of drivers looking for a small, but capable, crossover. The 2018 Honda HR-V is the newest SUV in the Honda lineup, and it's a pleasure. Trim levels for 2018 include the Honda HR-V LX, EX, and EX-L Navi.

Bigger on the Inside

Thanks to a premium and versatile interior, the 2018 Honda HR-V is an extremely tough contender in the crossover class. A compact exterior hides a surprisingly large, roomy, and easy-to-configure interior. The Honda HR-V offers up to 24.3 cubic feet of storage space behind the rear seats, and up to 58.8 cubic feet with the back row folded down. Thanks to its Magic Seat, switching from passenger capacity to cargo capacity is easy.



A Clean Exterior Style

The 2018 Honda HR-V isn't quite as sharp or bold in its exterior styling as other SUVs on the market, but its clean, smooth look works well for it, and the understated and modest design leaves nothing to complain about. Select models offer exterior upgrades like roof rails.

Commuter-Friendly Engine Performance

Whether your commute is 2 miles or 20 (or more!), you'll appreciate what the 2018 Honda HR-V's powertrain offers. Standard power comes from a peppy 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that's good for 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque--not the most in class, but not the least. A manual transmission is standard, but a CVT is available. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but Honda All-Wheel Drive is available on all models.

Tech and Safety at Every Level

The well-equipped 2018 Honda HR-V comes standard with a 5-inch (non-touch) display screen, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera; upgrading to the Honda HR-V EX or EX-L Navi gets you a larger touchscreen display, dynamic rearview guidelines for the camera, Honda LaneWatch, HondaLink smartphone apps and integration, and navigation with voice recognition.
