Everything you need to know about the 2019 Honda HR-V

2019 Honda HR-V

The 2019 Honda HR-V returns with a whole host of new features, but rest assured it remains a versatile, sporty 5-door subcompact SUV. The HR-V provides plenty of interior space with up to 24.3 cubic feet of rear cargo space and 100.1 cubic feet of passenger space. It provides ample headroom and legroom, and with the multi-position 2nd row Magic Seat, the HR-V provides plenty of seating configurations to accommodate whatever you have on board.

Powered by a 141 horsepower, 1.8-liter DOHC i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine, all 2019 Honda HR-V models now use a Continuously Variable automatic Transmission (CVT) which allows for a more natural driving feel and quieter operation. Now for what’s new…

New Trims
The 2019 Honda HR-V has two new trim levels — Sport and Touring — each with its own distinct look.

The Sport trim offers up a youthful vibe with its stylish blackout trim. Features include: contrast stitching on the seats, leather-covered steering wheel and shifter, sport-style pedals, black headliner, and gloss-black trim — gloss black on the lower front and rear bumper, rocker panels, and wheel arches, as well as a gloss-black exterior mirror (it’s sleek). The HR-V Sport trim also includes a honeycomb pattern grille, exclusive 18-inch alloy wheels and tires, and a chrome exhaust finisher in the rear. As with the other HR-V trims, the Sport includes a new Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration.

And for the Touring? The all-wheel-drive-only Touring trim has double-stitched leather-trimmed seats, with 8-way power adjustment for the driver, plus multi-element LED headlights, dark chrome trim, and LED fog lights. And exclusively available in the Touring trim is a new and improved navigation system with sharper graphics and 3D landmarks.

New Styling
They might not be new trims, but the remaining HR-V trim levels — LX, EX and EX-L — benefit from refreshed styling and style upgrades. Each new model includes revised bumpers, headlights, grille, and taillights. Plus, a bold new interpretation of the Honda “flying wing.” Now rendered in dark chrome, the wing wraps over the new projector-style headlights. Additionally, the 2019 Honda HR-V comes available in three new head turning colors — Orange Burst Metallic, Midnight Amethyst Metallic, and Platinum White Pearl. Further adding to its upscale appeal are its new smoky turn signals that are accented by a thin chrome band.

New Technology
The 2019 Honda HR-V includes a new and improved Display Audio system that includes a volume knob and Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration. Its simplified interface makes it intuitive and easy to use. Plus, all models include a redesigned driver’s meter with a large analog speedometer and digital tachometer. With the addition of extra sound absorbing materials placed in the firewall, under the floor, and in the passenger-side foot well a ride in the 2019 Honda Hr-V is now quieter than ever.

New Safety
And last but not least, Honda Sensing, Honda’s advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, is now standard across trim levels. Honda Sensing includes, but is not limited to:
Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
Road Departure Mitigation (RDM)
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS) – standard on EX and above trims
