2018 Honda HR-V
What Is the Honda HR-V?
The 2018 Honda HR-V is a subcompact crossover SUV. Outside, it's got city-friendly dimensions to make navigating easier than in a much larger SUV. But, inside, the HR-V boasts two roomy rows of seating - exactly where you want to be during a long commute or a family-packed trip up the coast. The cabin is also one of the most versatile in the segment, with its highly configurable Magic Seat, which lifts up to create floor-to-ceiling cargo space for your new flat-screen TV or bicycle. Throughout your travels, the HR-V keeps things thrifty, earning up to 28 city/34 highway mpg.
Who Should Buy the HR-V?
The 2018 Honda HR-V is for anyone who wants a winning subcompact crossover SUV and everything that comes with it. Drivers in need of a fuel-efficient commute can't go wrong. Families who like to travel in packs, with a cargo hold full of gear, will also be pleased; this crossover is roomy and comfortable. In suburban neighborhoods, the HR-V glides down winding roads with ease. When it's time to hit the city streets, this crossover is equally capable. Its sharp steering and secure handling boost your confidence in any setting.
Which HR-V Is Best?
Whether you're on a quest for thrifty, dependable ride or all-out luxury, there's a 2018 Honda HR-V model for you. The base LX model has got all the basics - from Honda's nifty Magic Seat to a 5-inch central display screen. The rear Magic Seat is reconfigurable, creating extra cargo space or a rear-seat lounger for napping. The standard infotainment setup is easy to use, and it includes Bluetooth for on-the-fly hands-free calling and endless audio streaming.
Spend a little more on the HR-V EX, and you'll enjoy additional comfort, with heated front seats and automatic climate control. The infotainment system also gets a boost, with HondaLink smartphone integration and a 7-inch touchscreen display. This model also comes with keyless entry and ignition, so you can hit the road without any fumbles through your pocketbook. The EX-L Navi is the line's top-trim model, the right choice for drivers who want to add a little luxury to their ride, with leather upholstery and satellite and HD radio. The EX-L Navi also includes a navigation system with voice recognition, which is always ready to help you find the nearest burger joint or tire repair shop.
Is the HR-V 4WD or AWD?
All-wheel drive is optional for the 2018 Honda HR-V. There's just one catch - you need the continuously variable transmission (as opposed to the six-speed manual) before you can add this technology. With all-wheel drive, however, you'll enjoy extra traction on wet or icy roads. It's a must-have for anyone who lives in rainy climate or experiences intense winter weather.
