What the Critics Say

For a reasonable price and with reasonable exterior dimensions for easier parking and maneuverability, the HR-V boasts passenger and cargo space that matches or betters far larger vehicles. The secret to this success is its so-called “Magic Seat,” borrowed from Honda’s Fit, which flips its seat bottom up or folds completely flat into the floor.” – Autotrader
For urban drivers who focus on practicality, parking and maneuverability are a snap. The HR-V feels as if you’re driving a tall car, not a brawny SUV.” – Consumer Reports

What’s New for 2021

Returning for the 2021 model year, the Honda HR-V remains mostly unchanged from the prior year. The only updates to the HR-V are evident on Sport models which now come equipped with a new alloy wheel design along with rear window tint. Drivers who crave the ultimate subcompact SUV should turn their attention towards the stylish and versatile Honda HR-V.
