What says practical, efficient and nimble better than the 2021 Honda HR-V? The HR-V is the little sibling to the Honda CR-V and as such might get passed by simply because of its size, but an honest inquiry into the virtues of this subcompact crossover is all someone needs to do to gain respect for this mighty little SUV.
If you thought a subcompact crossover can’t have All-Wheel Drive (AWD), you would be wrong. While it is not a standard feature, AWD is available on the LX-AWD, Sport, and Touring trims. Combine available AWD with the model’s excellent interior and storage space, and you get one of the best subcompact crossover solutions. As always, expect Honda reliability and quality from every square inch of the HR-V. Other available features and vehicle specifications are highlighted in the table below.
|1.8L Inline 4-Cylinder Engine||Road Departure Mitigation System||Adaptive Cruise Control|
|Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)||Forward Collision Warning and Collision Mitigation Braking System™||Proximity Key Entry System with Pushbutton Start|
|141 Horsepower||LED Daytime Running Lights||Rear-Seat Heater Ducts|
|127 lb-ft of Torque|
HondaLink™ Assist Automatic Emergency Response System
|Power Windows with Auto-Up/Down Driver’s Window|
The Honda HR-V does a lot with what little space it can have in its class. There might be competitors with flashier technology or random bells and whistles you may or may not want or even use, but the HR-V is focused right where it should be, on practicality. Whether you just want something with more cargo space than a subcompact sedan can offer or if it just feels safer to drive, the 2021 Honda HR-V could be the vehicle you are looking for. It has four trims to choose from, and we recommend you start your search with the Sport and decide if you want to move up to the Touring or down to the LX from there.
