What the Critics Say

Aside from being larger, this platform also comes with a new multilink rear suspension Honda promises will increase both ride comfort and handling performance compared to the old torsion-beam setup. We think the new Civic handles great, so it bodes well for the HR-V.” – MotorTrend
This new HR-V looks more mature, even a bit upscale. Gone are the odd high-mounted rear door handles. They’re replaced by traditional grips. The body is sculpted with smooth curves that move the look closer to that of the latest Honda SUVs and away from the crisp creases seen in Honda’s cars.” – Consumer Reports

What’s New for 2023

The popular Honda HR-V has undergone a total refresh both inside and out for the 2023 model year. This all-new HR-V rides on a new platform that’s based on the 11th generation Civic that delivers a longer wheelbase, more robust 2.0L engine, and sleeker exterior styling. Similarly, the cabin receives a makeover that includes a streamlined dashboard, new technology features, and more driver-assist amenities as well. It’s expected that the all-new Honda HR-V will set an entirely new standard for the subcompact SUV segment.

All HR-V models also come paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) featuring enhanced shift mapping for smooth acceleration at all speeds. Great for those who love to get out and chase adventure, the optional Real-Time All-Wheel Drive system lets you excel in harsh weather conditions such as heavy rain or snow.

Two aspects of the Honda HR-V that separates it from the competition are its unmatched versatility and expansive cargo capacity. Thanks to a standard 60/40 split-folding rear seat, it’s easy to adapt the interior of your HR-V to carry a mix of both passengers and cargo. A total of 98.7 cubic feet of passenger space means that all occupants will have plenty of room to stretch out on longer journeys.
