The 2016 Honda HR-V reviews are in, and we have to say that we are quite proud of Honda’s new compact crossover here at Capital Region Honda Dealers. Built on the Fit’s platform and taking styling cues from the CR-V, the brand new HR-V looks like it’s ready to fill out Honda’s trio of crossovers, giving you an option for something smaller than the CR-V and Pilot.
Critics Respond to the HR-V
You expect us to love the HR-V, but the critics are big fans too. Take a look:
- Car and Driver: “The HR-V draws deeply on past and present. In many ways, it’s a throwback to the best things 20th-century Honda ever did, such as elegant interiors, sweet suspension tuning, and well-considered details.”
- The Car Connection: “Honda says it’s aimed for a coupe-like feel outside and inside the HR-V, with the upward sweep of its rear pillar and the embedded, almost hidden, rear door handles. The roofline arches for more headroom, the fenders swell and curve … it is a more playful look.”
- Kelley Blue Book: “If you’ve been craving a smaller Honda that splits the difference between the Fit and CR-V, you’ll find it in the HR-V. The HR-V also has a value-conscious price…yet it offers an interior and features that feel more premium than what’s found in the Fit.”
- Cars.com: “The HR-V’s innovative layout takes it a step further with a roomy, versatile cabin and large cargo area. Combined with a high-grade interior and good estimated gas mileage, the HR-V enters the segment poised to strongly challenge established and all-new models alike.”
- AutoWeek: “Its 1.8-liter four is so smooth and quiet at idle that we initially thought the HR-V might be equipped with start/stop (it isn’t). Overall refinement ranks high. The HR-V is coarser than the grade-up CR-V, but quieter than a Fit, and smoother than a Nissan Juke.”
