The 2023 Honda HR-V seems like a smart way to get from one place to another.
Honda Hrv Sport 2023 Review
Hello young people, how are you? Want an angry wreck that’s perfect for hauling things and going anywhere? Of course you are! Say hello to the new 2023 Honda HR-V, which looks like a Civic but is bigger. Mark my words, you can find these things everywhere regardless of your demographic.
Honda Hr V Hybrid (2021) Review: Pragmatism On Wheels
From the front, the new HR-V doesn’t look like it, as if it hates the idea of being a car. It’s disgusting and hateful for its purpose – schlepping The owner has no coffee table at home from IKEA after the Marinara disaster. He’s aware of the possibility of an ugly license plate, and approaches this potential situation with a panache usually reserved for the desperate. Things get better from the side – think five-eighths of the Acura MDX, if not nailed to the vertical axis.
While the HR-V’s profile looks great, things take a turn for the worse the moment your eyes turn to the ground. Is it just me, or is the wheel design on this thing really awesome? The Sport trim wraps the wheel design in a bath of black paint, while the EX-L’s five-spoke convex design looks very stylish. Those EX-L wheels make the HR-V look like a buffalo on roller skates. I’m not saying good tires make this a super sharp car, but come on. Thanks, everything was working fine then.
Oh yes. See that ugly trunk between the taillights? This is very good. It’s clean and minimal, a real breath of fresh air in a sea of clean cars. The HR-V’s taillights are pretty cool too, a nice touch for these things. The Altezza-style taillights are actually interesting, not funny, with lots of nice details. A small LED strip under the red is visible for the backlight or display. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the amber shimmer.
Also, let’s talk about the use of gloss black plastic instead of the unpainted tupperware on the EX-L trim. Sure, it’s shaped like DJ Lethal, but it should last longer than plain textured plastic. Keep in mind that the lower parts don’t get large plastic panels on the sides, so good on Honda for trying to prevent that with a smaller fender.

There are some cool things going on inside the new HR-V. Make sure the USB port on the center console is positioned correctly so you can store devices in the small cubby below the center switch bank. It’s a very nice feature, as are the very good grips on the lower door panels and cargo area. As for the rest of the interior, Honda’s “simple and practical” (yes, that’s a real name) design ethos is on full display here, with good Civic-like width, perfect for the instrument panel vents, and three stylish buttons. For the HVAC controls and some cool stuff on the center console. Honestly, the interior looks better than most subcompact crossovers. This is the combat-ready cabin in the Mazda CX-30.
There is also good technology on board. While Honda’s native infotainment interface looks like a $40 head unit you’d buy from Wish, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are pretty good, and Honda’s safety suite has been updated to include a wide-angle front-facing camera, lane markers, and more. . The road helps ease the burden of travel. Also, hey, the physical steering wheel and seven-inch infotainment system are down! It’s really a dying thing, and there’s something cool about it.
As for cargo space, it’s pretty good. 24.4 cubic feet (690.9 L) behind the rear seats, and 55.1 cubic feet (1,560 L) with the rear seats folded. Sure, the Kia Seltos has 26.6 cubic feet (753 L) of cargo space behind the seats and 62.8 cubic feet (1,778 L) of room in the second row, but it’s also cheap. If the new Civic is anything to go by, the new HR-V should feel very stylish, with soft-touch plastic packages and fun handling.
Power comes from a two-liter four-cylinder engine that makes the same power output. Let’s face it, 158 horsepower and 138 lbs. torque is enough to propel such a car forward, but not enough to actually do anything. Like getting Cs in school, the HR-V’s engine will serve you well. The only gearbox available is a CVT that can send power to either the front wheels or all four. Look, if you care about acceleration, buy a Hyundai Kona N or something. The HR-V’s powertrain gets the job done here without much fuss and minimal fuel consumption. The EPA rates this thing at 26 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 28 mpg for the front-wheel-drive version, while all-wheel-drive models lose one mpg city, two highway and one combined. Sure, it’s not hatchback territory, but it’s not terrible either.
Review Honda Hr V Sport 2019
Even better than “not dangerous” is the overall support of the HR-V. It’s based on the new Civic because it has a stiffer frame, independent rear suspension and a more user-friendly footprint than the old model. Most importantly, there is a very good feeling. The roof is laser-melted to eliminate plastic rain channels, and the vents are heavily concealed for a sleek look. A wonderful thing.
Prices for the new HR-V range from $24,985 for the front-wheel-drive LX trim to $30,195 for the loaded EX-L sedan, including a $1,245 destination charge. Not cheap, not expensive, just smack dab in the middle of the compact crossover market. In fact, the new HR-V looks like a really nice step up from the old one. Mind you, I hated the old HR-V – I came to test drive it with no expectations and was still disappointed. However, this 2023 model is very attractive. It says the right things on paper, and subcompact crossover owners should know exactly what they want their car to do.
However, Honda seems to think that they will sell it to the youth. The marketing team used the term “GenZennials” in the press release for the new HR-V, which makes me want to use a paint brush to paint my eyes. When it comes to things like “GenZennial,” whatever Cinnamon Toast Fuck means, I can tell you this – young people aren’t buying this stuff en masse. They walk into Honda dealerships, see the Civic hatchback’s fuel economy numbers, and buy one of those instead.
Who can blame them? The Civic hatchback is more practical, more economical, better equipped and slightly cheaper than the HR-V. I’m not saying this as a teenager in a car, but as a fully fledged teenager. Smaller cars are generally better on my bike. You know who buys a ton of HR-Vs? Our parents and grandparents. People with nothing want to bring home a bag of mulch from Home Depot because they have the time and energy to improve their home. Because the back is not what it used to be, people are embracing higher driver seats. Do you know? This is very good. The small crossover SUV has a nice interior that is perfect for that crowd and it is definitely a good choice in the general market. Expect the new HR-V to hit showrooms this month, and soon after that it’ll be in big-box parking lots from coast to coast. .
