What's New For 2018?
There were not a whole lot of changes made to the 2018 Honda HR-V. The only significant change is that Honda is now designing its vehicles on its new global platform, which slightly extends the wheelbase and widens the vehicle. This provides a little more hip and leg space in the cabin and cargo space in the rear.
The 2018 Honda HR-V is only available as a subcompact SUV. It slates just below the Honda CR-V in the overall lineup.
The 2018 Honda HR-V is only available in three different trim levels: the base LX trim, the mid-level EX, and the line-topping EX-L Navi. The LX comes equipped with 17-inch wheels, the 60/40 split-folding rear Magic Seat, a USB port, and a 5-inch touchscreen LCD display. If you decide to move on up to the EX trim, you get fog lights, remote keyless entry and ignition, an upgraded 7-inch touchscreen display, and a blindspot monitor for the passenger side of the vehicle. On the EX-L Navi, you get - as the name suggests - Honda's navigation system. In addition to that, you also get leather upholstery, HD and satellite radio capabilities, and roof rails.
Out of the entire Honda lineup, the HR-V is probably the least exciting to drive. The standard 1.8-L 4-cylinder engine only produces a modest 141 hp, which is sufficient to power the vehicle. However, it does not provide for too many thrills. The vehicle takes almost 10 seconds to get from 0 to 60 mph and struggles with getting up steep hills. However, braking feels natural for its segment and is rather predictable. Handling and steering are where the HR-V really shines. The well-tuned suspension makes handling tight corners and bumpy road surfaces a breeze, and the steering always inspires a feeling of confidence, as it provides good enough feedback to the driver.
Chances are that, if you are considering buying a Honda HR-V, one of the reasons it is on your list is that it has a decent fuel economy. As is the case with all Honda vehicles, the HR-V lands near the top of the pack where gas mileage is concerned. In fact, the 2017 HR-V sat right atop all the major competitors in its class with a stellar 31 combined mpg. It snagged 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway, and those numbers are not expected to change much on the 2018 model.
The 2018 Honda HR-V is not the top pick among all Honda vehicles. Its driving performance has some flaws that, while they should not be considered deal-breakers, make for a less-than-enthralling ride. There also is not much room for customization with just three trim levels and a select number of packages and stand-alone features. However, if you do not want something that is going to go super fast, the HR-V offers a lot in the way of handling and steering. It will also be difficult to find another subcompact SUV that can best the HR-V's superb fuel efficiency.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Honda HR-V
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Honda HR-V invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Honda HR-V MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
