2016 Honda HR-V news, pictures, specifications, and information
The 2016 HR-V crossover is an all-new Honda vehicle that blends the styling of a coupe, the toughness, space and utility of an SÚV, and the quality and refinement of a Honda in one sporty, personal and versatile multi-dimensional vehicle. The well-equipped HR-V enters the fast-growing entry crossover market wîth dynamic yet refined exterior styling, fun-to-drive performance, class-leading fuel efficiency ratings and one of the most spacious and versatile cabins in its class. The HR-V is available in three trim levels: LX, EX and EX-L Navi.

Developed on Honda's Global Compact Series platform, the HR-V utilizes a center-mounted fuel tank layout and reconfigurable 2nd-Row Magic Seat® to deliver voluminous interior space along wîth a flexible cabin featuring multiple seating/cargo modes. With 100.1 cu.-ft. of passenger space and 58.8 cu.-ft. of cargo volume (LX FWD) wîth the 2nd-Row seats folded down, the HR-V has space to rival some competitors' midsize SÚV offerings.

The HR-V's dynamic appearance and sporty, solid stance is aided by its coupe-like cabin shape and bold and powerfully tapered face. Distinctive side contours, including a sharply upswept character line and deeply sculpted lower body flow into a tapered rear fascia that adds to the visual appeal. Concealed rear door handles further enhance the HR-V's coupe-like appearance.

The equally sporty and sophisticated interior features an expansive, airy cockpit wîth an abundance of soft-touch materials and premium detailing punctuated by precise bezels, sophisticated stitch lines and up-market brushed chrome and piano black highlights – all fitting its mission as a youthful yet refined personal crossover vehicle. The three-meter driver's instrument cluster features 'floating' illumination rings and Honda's ECO Assist feature, wherein the speedometer illumination changes from white to green depending on current fuel efficiency.

Powertrain and Drivetrain

Power comes from a highly refined and responsive 1.8-liter SOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine wîth i-VTEC® valvetrain, producing a peak 141 horsepower at 6,500 rpm1 and 127 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,300 rpm2. The engine is mated to a sporty and fuel-efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT) wîth Honda 'G-design' shift logic, or a slick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission (LX and EX FWD only). The HR-V is available wîth front-wheel-drive or wîth Honda's Real Time AWD wîth Intelligent Control System™ for outstanding all-weather traction and control.

Body and Chassis

The HR-V utilizes a unique center-mounted fuel tank layout that enables the second row Magic Seat® to fold completely flat into the floor, creating a more spacious and versatile interior package. Driving efficiency, handling performance and cabin quietness are further aided by an aerodynamic shape and a lightweight yet rigid body structure wîth significant noise-insulating materials and design features. The body utilizes Honda's next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure for enhanced frontal collision protection, and 27 percent of the body is composed of advanced ultra-high strength steel for improved rigidity that enhances collision-protection, handling response, ride quality and a quiet cabin environment.

Fully independent front and torsion-beam rear suspension systems wîth amplitude reactive dampers maximize rear seating and cargo space while also providing outstanding handling characteristics and ride quality. Electric Power Steering (EPS) provides a refined and sporty §teering feel while minimizing energy requirements. All models feature power-assisted four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes wîth Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Hill Start Assist, an Electric Parking Brake (EPB) wîth Automatic Brake Hold, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels and 215/55R17 all-season tires.

Safety and Driver-Assistive Technology

Útilizing advanced safety technologies and design features, including Honda's next-generation ACE™ body structure, the HR-V is expected to achieve top-class collision safety performance ratings – a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), including a GOOD rating in the rigorous IIHS small-overlap frontal collision test.

Standard safety and driver-assistive features include four-channel anti-lock brakes (ABS) wîth Brake Assist and Hill Start Assist; Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®4 electronic stability control system; an Expanded View Driver's Mirror; a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera5; dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; driver and front passenger SmartVent® side airbags; side-curtain airbags for all outboard seating positions; and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)6. Honda LaneWatch®7 display is included wîth EX and EX-L Navi trims.

Features and Trims

The HR-V offers a high level of standard equipment for an affordable crossover vehicle, along wîth a long list of available premium features to accommodate a wide variety of consumer needs. LX and EX trims wîth front-wheel drive can be equipped wîth either the 6-speed manual transmission or sporty continuously variable transmission (CVT), and all models can be specified as front-wheel-drive or equipped wîth Real Time AWD™. Models wîth Real Time AWD™ are available only wîth a CVT.
