The 2023 Honda HR-V is a subcompact SUV that offers the perfect balance of style, practicality, and value. It’s perfect for city dwellers who need a car that’s easy to park and maneuver, but it’s also spacious enough to accommodate passengers and cargo for longer trips. The HR-V’s interior is designed to be both stylish and functional. The dashboard is well laid out and easy to navigate, and the materials used throughout the cabin are high-quality. The front seats are comfortable and supportive, and there’s plenty of legroom and headroom for even taller passengers. I have a 6 foot 6-inch son-in-law and he was very comfortable in both the back and front seating, and that says a lot. The HR-V’s cargo space is also impressive, especially for a subcompact SUV. With the rear seats up, you’ll have 24.3 cubic feet of cargo space. Fold down the rear seats, and that number jumps to 55.3 cubic feet. That is a lot of boots, school supplies, and groceries. The 2023 HR-V features a sleek and modern exterior design. The front of the car is dominated by a large grille and sharp headlights. The HR-V also has a prominent shoulder line and muscular wheel arches. The rear of the car is highlighted by a wraparound taillight design. Honestly, I have always liked the “style” of the Honda products, clean, well-designed, and good-looking. The HR-V is available in a variety of exterior colors, including Lunar Silver Metallic, Platinum White Pearl, Aegean Blue Metallic, Radian Red Metallic, Crimson Pearl, and Meteorite Gray Metallic. I loved the Pearl White, looks classy and expensive.
The 2023 HR-V comes standard with a variety of safety features, including the Honda Sensing suite of driver assistance technologies, including automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. Add to that Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control, Anti-lock Braking System Electronic Brake Distribution, Brake Assist, Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Daytime Running Lights, Automatic High Beams, Side Curtain Airbag System, and Driver and Front Passenger Airbags…what else would you want in safety features? This little beauty is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (that really helps the HR-V get up and go when you hit the pedal! The HR-V is available in both front-wheel drive (FWD) and all-wheel drive (AWD) configurations. The FWD HR-V gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/34 mpg highway/30 mpg combined. The AWD HR-V gets an EPA-estimated 27 mpg city/32 mpg highway/29 mpg combined. With the price of gas lately those are nice numbers. The 2023 HR-V is available in three trim levels: LX, Sport, and EX-L. The LX trim is the base model and comes standard with features such as 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Honda Sensing. The Sport trim adds features such as a blacked-out grille, 18-inch alloy wheels, and a fog light. The EX-L trim is the top-of-the-line model and adds features such as a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, and a sunroof. These little compact SUV’s are really packed with extras. The 2023 HR-V has a starting MSRP of $23,650 for the LX trim. The Sport trim starts at $24,890, and the EX-L trim starts at $27,450. Honestly, you are going to get lots of bang for your buck! The 2023 Honda HR-V is a great choice for anyone looking for a stylish, practical, and fuel-efficient subcompact SUV. It offers a spacious interior, a variety of safety features, and a comfortable ride. The HR-V is also very well-priced, go and check them out you are going to be impressed.
