Compact SUVs are the talk of the market nowadays with every major manufacturer rolling out their version for the current year. Honda is not behind with its HR-V. The Honda HR-V is a direct competitor of the Hyundai Kona and the Nissan Kicks. Something had to be done to beat the competition and Honda achieved that by giving the HR-V the largest cargo storage they could muster. Using the Magic Seat concept, which can also be found in the Honda Fit, Honda gave the HR-V an edge above its competitors. On top of that, the manufacturer was able to make the HR-V fuel efficient, which makes for a killer combo.
What’s new in 2019 Honda HR-V?
The automobile market is extremely competitive. The manufacturers that are part of this industry have to put out something new and exciting in their vehicles every year in order to stay relevant and attractive to the consumer. Hence, the Honda HR-V gets a wider grille, brand-new headlamps, a different bumper, and better wheels. However, that is not all of it, the Honda HR-V carries an electrically assisted steering wheel, an improved CVT transmission and an all-wheel-drive system (optional).
Inside the cabin, there is a new infotainment display which has Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as optional. Honda’s driver assistance package is also available which brings many advanced features to the HR-V.
Choice of Models
The Honda HR-V comes in five trims that are really exciting. The base trim, namely the LX trim, has a multi-angle rearview camera, Bluetooth functionality, 17-inch alloy rims, remote entry, and many other features. One step above the base trim is the Sport version. This version has paddle shifters, sport pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel & gear knob, a 7-inch touchscreen display, fog lights and a spoiler among other things. The EX trim comes next and with it come features such as heated front seats, a moon roof, smart entry, and lock as well as the basic Honda Sensing features.
The EX-L trim has leather seats, 17-inch chrome wheels, and a better audio system. The range-topping Touring version gets all the features mentioned above and on top of them it gets Honda's sat-nav, LED fog lights, 8-way adjustable seats, and all the driver assistance features. There should be no doubt that the Touring variant is the best among them all both in terms of looks and features.
The Honda HR-V lacks in the engine department. All the trims get the same engine, so you don't have the option to choose among alternatives. The 1.8-liter 4 cylinder engine growls a lot but it does not have the power to make the HR-V as exciting as you would want it to be. The engine when teamed up with the CVT transmission produces 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque. This combination is enough to take the HR-V from 0 to 60 mph in 8.6 seconds. However, if you have the AWD HR-V the 0 to 60 mph time will drop to 9.5 seconds. That is a poor performance for a modern car with such a large engine.
All HR-Vs are front wheel drives but buyers have the choice of going with all-wheel drive. The all-wheel-drive feature might seem necessary for those who intend to drive their vehicle on rough terrain, however, it is better if you stay with the front-wheel-drive version as it is faster and handles slightly better.
The more expensive trims get the Honda Sensing driver assistance suite. Honda Sensing includes features such as automated emergency braking, lane-departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. Moreover, the HR-V has a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. That is the highest rating a vehicle could get from the competent authority. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has not yet tested the vehicle but based on the NHTSA rating you should hope for the best.
The HR-V handles well, however it has its limits. You should certainly not push the SUV too hardespecially in corners. The SUV handles pretty well on asphalt when the motive is to drive straight. It is the rough terrain that brings on a challenge to the HR-V. Overall the 2019 Honda HR-V is a great multi-purpose vehicle.
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.
