The executives of Honda have explained that Honda HR-V is designed to fulfill the brand’s promise to deliver both enjoyment and exceptional fuel efficiency.

In-Car Technology and Interior of Honda HR-V
The cabin of Honda HR-V is distinctive when it comes to the lineup of Honda SUV for the reason that it skews more toward form than function. Its rising floating center console, which may be wrapped in padded stimulated leather looks good like its unique touch-operated controls for climate. The quality of the materials is great for this budget segment. The same can’t be said when it comes to its infotainment system.
Although Honda added a volume knob for the touchscreen, yet that omission was not the only flaw of the system. It is still slow and the structure of the menu convoluted. You only have to look inside a Honda Accord to see what the infotainment of Honda is capable of. With that touchscreen, everything but the base LX trim feature 2 USB ports that are inconveniently located under the floating center console. There are also Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and different smartphone apps via HondaLink.

The situation under the hood of Honda HR-V is quite simple. Each version comes with 1.8L inline-four, which produces 127 lb ft of torque and 141 hp, which is one of the lowest outputs. CVT and front-wheel drive are standard, while the all-wheel drive is an option.
