With so many entries in the popular compact crossover segment, the views of the critics really count, so let’s see what the 2017 Honda HR-V reviews are saying. Numerous publications have now had the opportunity to take the model out for a spin, get a feel for its interior, check out the body, and fiddle around with all the standard and available features. When all was said and done, the HR-V seems to have really impressed.
“Whether you need to haul a surf board or tall boxes, the HR-V can manage just about anything.” – Motortrend
There’s just no getting away from the HR-V’s spacious interior. Up to 100.1 cubic feet of passenger space makes room for all occupants, and the innovative Magic Seat lets you move between four separate cargo modes to enjoy:
- Up to 58.8 cubic feet of storage space.
- Room to fit cargo up to 8 feet long.
- Close to 4 feet of vertical cargo space.
“Spend the least on a base Honda HR-V LX and you'll still get features like a rearview camera, cruise control and Honda's Bluetooth HandsFreeLink system.” – Kelley Blue Book
As noted by the Kelley Blue Book 2017 Honda HR-V review, it offers plenty of high-end features as standard. Upgrading puts even more features at your command, including a Garmin-based Honda satellite-linked navigation system, Honda LaneWatch side-view monitor, heated front seats, and a 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen.
“The combination of excellent all-around visibility and maneuverability makes the HR-V easy to back into a tight spot.” – Edmunds.com
One of the first things you’ll notice about the 2017 Honda HR-V is how well it drives. All models use a state-of-the-art 1.8L four-cylinder engine to deliver up to 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque, so the vehicle is nimble in the city yet still powerful enough for the highway. You’ll even make up to 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway* with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT), or 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway* with 6-speed manual.
