New Honda 2019 Honda HR-V for Sale in West Springfield, MA
The 2019 Honda HR-V fits a need in the market for those seeking great value in a smaller crossover that’s outfitted well for its price point, especially in higher trim levels. The HR-V outdoes some of its biggest rivals in important categories like ground clearance, passenger volume, and fuel efficiency. With the same 141 horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder across its lineup, front-wheel-drive HR-Vs achieve 28 mpg city/34 mpg highway while all-wheel-drive models get 27 city/31 highway*. This year, it returns with a couple of new trim levels and a ride that’s quieter than before (thanks to additional body insulation) yet just as dynamically fun as before.
Standard Equipment and Trims
The five trims of the ’19 HR-V offer a varied list of standard features, with AWD available at each level. The base LX offers a multi-angle backup camera, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, LED daytime running lights, and Honda’s handy second-row Magic Seat. New for this model year, the Sport trim adds Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a second USB port, plus racing elements inside and out: dual-mode paddle shifters, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob, sport pedals, roof rails, fog lights, a rear roofline spoiler and underbody spoiler, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The EX trim tempts buyers with its added features, which include heated front seats, push-button start, a one-touch power moonroof, and the Honda Sensing active safety/driver assistive suite of technologies. EX-L sweetens the list with leather seating, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and an upgraded six-speaker audio system. Topping the selection is the Touring model, with its standard navigation system, eight-way power driver’s seat, auto on/off LED headlights, and HomeLink remote system.
