New Honda 2022 Honda HR-V for Sale in West Springfield, MA
With the crossover segment all the rage, the Honda HR-V continues to attract eager drivers who want a nimble vehicle with a good view of the road that can carry a good amount of stuff without being too big. This subcompact utility vehicle was introduced for the 2016 model year as the CR-V’s smaller sibling. Since then, it’s made a lot of drivers happy with its reliability, affordable pricing, generous standard equipment, and available all-wheel drive – a sought-after feature that you won’t find on its closest rival, the Toyota C-HR. Another outstanding feature that’s exclusive to Honda is the versatile second-row Magic Seat, which splits and folds into a number of useful configurations, allowing the HR-V to fit a surprising array of items, even a bicycle.
Trims and Powertrain
Four trim levels – the LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L – round out the choices for HR-V buyers this model year. Their powertrain consists of a 141-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that efficiently manages the gear ratios. A front-wheel drivetrain comes as the default, but most New England drivers will prefer the option of all-wheel drive. FWD HR-Vs are, according to the official EPA estimates, expected to achieve 28 mpg around town and 34 mpg on the open road; with AWD those figures are adjusted to 27 city/31 highway.
The base-level LX gets automatic-off headlights, front- and second-row 12-volt power outlets, a USB port, a passenger-side seatback pocket, cargo area tie-down anchors, a multi-angle backup camera with fixed guidelines, The second row is set up with its own HVAC ducts and Honda’s practical Magic Seat, which splits and folds into a variety of handy configurations to take on items that would be a challenge to fit inside any other subcompact crossover. The Sport trim gets some upgrades: roof rails, rear-window privacy glass, fog lights, exterior trim in gloss-black, an exhaust finisher, an additional USB port, steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, sport pedals, leather wrapping for the steering wheel and shifter knob, 18-inch wheels, and a backup camera that’s improved with dynamic guidelines.
The EX drops the Sport’s special exterior elements along with its sport pedals and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, but it gets a moonroof, heated front seats, push-button start, illuminated driver and front passenger vanity mirrors, automatic climate control, automatic-on/off headlights, keyless entry, and heated exterior mirrors with turn-signal indicators. The leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter knob return at the EX-L level, which also receives leather seating and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Safety and Technology
The two highest HR-V trims (EX and EX-L) have Honda Sensing on their standard equipment list. This suite of advanced driver-assist technologies consists of automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and Honda LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring.
The infotainment system starts out with a 5-inch LCD display in the base LX, plus Bluetooth for hands-free phone use and audio streaming, and a sound system with two pairs of speakers. Improvements to the other trims include a 7-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), a higher-wattage sound system, Pandora compatibility, and hands-free texting. The EX and EX-L also get SiriusXM satellite radio, high-def radio, and two additional speakers.
