2017 Honda HR-V

The 2017 Honda HR-V and Honda Fit hatchback share a family tree. The LX, EX, and EX-L with Navigation are the available trims. Front-wheel drive is standard on all models, with all-wheel drive available as an option on some. The HR-V’s multifunctional interior and huge cargo space set it apart from the competition in this price category, as do the vehicle’s high-quality materials and predicted fuel economy, particularly when equipped with front-wheel drive.


The 2017 Honda HR-V is offered in 3 trim levels:

  • LX: 29 combined MPG
  • EX: 28 combined MPG
  • EX-L w/Navigation: 31 combined MPG

Performance and Fuel Economy

Honda equips the HR-V with a 1.8-liter inline-4 engine in the United States, a bigger form of the 1.5-liter engine used in the Fit hatchback. Even though the HR-V has more power than the Fit (141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque), even in the manual gearbox and front-wheel-drive configuration, the HR-V is underpowered and would make for a tedious drag race against the Fit if it were to compete. All of the extra weight from the HR-higher V’s body, its more equipment, and—when equipped—its optional all-wheel drive, which adds a few hundred pounds on its own, negates any possible acceleration gains from the small power rise over the Fit.

The LX and EX only come with a six-speed manual gearbox with front-wheel drive, and the CVT when equipped with all-wheel drive. Honda should be applauded for allowing manual transmissions in a car that isn’t geared at the enthusiast manual-transmission-seeker like the Fit. There will be many more CVT-equipped HR-Vs on the road in the near future, which have a good sport mode that provides some quick response while increasing fuel consumption. As much as we despise the CVT for its lack of responsiveness, Honda does have paddle shifters that emulate 1/10th-speed Ayrton Senna-style shifts in the logic bank. These numbers drop to 25/33/28 if you opt for the manual. The CVT-only HR-V with all-wheel drive comes in at 27/31/29 mpg.

2017 Honda HR-V Owner's Manual
2017 Honda HR-V Manual


The Honda HR-V is 169.1 inches long and has a wheelbase of 102.8 inches. There are two variants to choose from, the basic model with 100.1 cubic feet of space and the EX and EX-L with 96.1 cubic feet of space since the EX-L comes standard with a sunroof. A fair amount of headroom may be found even with the glass panel. There’s enough legroom for four people in the backseat while competitors make the second row a tight squeeze. Unlike other subcompact crossovers, the HR-V has three child safety seats that can be readily buckled in. Although the front seats are well-padded and supportive, they may require a bit of additional under-knee bolstering providing maximum comfort.

It looks great, but it’s a headache to use, especially when you’re using it with the seven-inch touchscreen on the base S model. It also shows information about the car, such as mileage and driving habits, and photos from the rearview parking camera (depending on spec).

MirrorLink uses the touchscreen to mirror the display of a linked mobile phone. The SE Navi and EX grades come standard with a Garmin satellite navigation system. There is a wide selection of standard features, including automated lighting, Bluetooth, and engine stop-start, depending on the model level.

Among the standard features of the 2017 HR-V LX is a 5.0-inch touchscreen music system with just one USB port. This model’s Magic Seat package includes Wireless Bluetooth, 17-inch alloy wheels, a rearview camera, and cruise control. Although ride quality takes precedence over flat cornering, the HR-V is suitably confident and balanced, which is exactly what most consumers would likely desire. The HR-V has been tuned for the ordinary challenges of the daily commute. Its relaxed steering and suspension keep body roll under control, even on roads with varying maintenance levels.
