Exterior and Performance
The 2020 HR-V runs on a 1,799 cc I-4 engine block that whips out slightly more than 140 net horsepower at 6,500 RPM. Utilizing the SOHC i-VTEC technology, this compact powertrain generates just under 130 pound-feet of peak torque when the tachometer reads 4,300 RPM. Unleaded gasoline is delivered to the four cylinders through multi-point fuel injection. This compact Honda crossover SUV could be equipped with the Real Time AWD system. With major leverage from the Intelligent Control System, you’ll handle the vehicle with confidence. The proprietary drivetrain works in tandem with a continuously variable transmission system. Dual-mode paddle shifters make it easy for the driver to engage the CVT. Additionally, the 2020 HR-V comes standard with the Hill Start Assist that holds the braking system for several seconds when you shift from park to a driving gear. When rolling on a 2WD, this Honda model gets up to 34 MPG on the highway**. Trims with the Real Time AWD offer a gas mileage of 31 MPG** on the highway.
Interior and Technology
You can easily manage the 2020 HR-V climate control system by tapping an electrostatic touch screen in the dashboard. This small Honda crossover SUV comes standard with heating ducts in the second row. All trims have chrome door pulls, cargo tie-down anchors, a driver’s side garment hook and passenger assist grips. Additionally, this affordable family car offers sliding sun visors, LED pocket lights and illuminated door lock controls. A high-deck center console with a sliding armrest provides convenient storage space for small items in the front row.
Standard in the 2020 HR-V, the Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink and audio streaming reduce distractions behind the wheel. Most trims offer additional mobile connectivity through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®. The driver should also take advantage of the exclusive HondaLink® application that’s compatible with popular mobile operating systems. Some of the 2020 HR-V editions offer great entertainment on HD Radio, Pandora Internet Radio® and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. A 180-watt sound system with six speakers plays music from these premium audio channels. The base LX trim has a 5-inch LCD touch screen, and the remaining models boast a 7-inch WVGA touch screen. A GPS navigation system is installed in the high-level Touring trim. You can rely on the HD Digital Traffic for up-to-the-minute updates.
Standard in the 2020 HR-V EX and higher trims, the Honda Sensing® technologies provide valuable accident-prevention guidance on the road. You’ll get six active safety features in this exclusive package, including the Collision Mitigation Braking System. Commuting to work will be less stressful with a little help from the Adaptive Cruise Control. You also won’t be stressed out about changing lanes thanks to the Lane Departure Warning. If you’re at risk of hitting a vehicle in another lane, the Lane Keeping Assist will instantly attempt to change the steering direction. Additionally, the Road Departure Mitigation helps you avoid an unintentional drift into the shoulder of a highway. You’ll find other great passive safety amenities in this compact Honda model, like the ACE body structure and SmartVent® air bags in the front row. Additional driving aides in this inexpensive family vehicle include a multi-angle rear view camera and the Auto High-Beam Headlights.
