Preview: 2016 Honda HR-V

The New 2016 Honda HR-V crossover was unveiled at the Los Angeles International Auto Show. This innovative new crossover combines the aesthetics of a coupe, with the functionality of a SUV. The HR-V separates itself by offering refined, but aggressive styling, great performance, class leading fuel economy, and unparalleled interior space. The HR-V is expected to launch at our Honda store early in 2016.


The HR-V owes its versatility to Honda’s new global platform. This platform makes use of the second row “Magic Seat”. Multiple seating arrangements allow you to use all the available room inside the HR-V when you need it. Small touches like the ability for the front passenger seat to fold flat, which means you can actually use the entire length of the interior.


“The new HR-V crossover is a true segment-busting vehicle, unlike anything else on the market today,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and general manager of the Honda Division. “It’s got all the essential elements of our Honda DNA, our packaging innovation, fuel-efficient powertrain technology, leading safety technology and, above all, Honda quality, to make this an incredibly compelling, sporty and value-packed new member of the Honda family.”

This engine produces 138 HP and 127 ft-lb of torque.  This engine is paired with Honda’s new continuously variable transmission or a six speed manual transmission. The HR-V is available in 2WD or with Honda’s Real Time AWD with intelligent Control.
