The automotive world is excited to have an all-new Honda HR-V for the 2023 model year. For its second generation, the smaller sibling to the long-popular CR-V showcases a more elegant and dynamic design accentuated by a honeycomb grille and slimline LED headlights. It shows off longer and wider proportions, and a smoother, more streamlined roofline. The redesigned HR-V also gets a more responsive 2.0-liter engine and an independent rear suspension, both of which work to deliver a more spirited ride quality than before. Plus, the Honda Sensing package of advanced driver-aid technologies is now standard across the board.

Even the HR-V’s interior has been given a complete makeover, with its upscale dash repeating the modern honeycomb detailing seen on the grille. The infotainment system has been improved with a standard 7-inch touchscreen (a 9-inch touchscreen is now available as well). Unlike the original HR-V generation, which was based on the stouter Honda Fit, the ’23 HR-V stems from the ’22 Civic, which has also been redesigned. This makes the HR-V both larger and more practical so that it’s perfect for urban outings as well as weekend getaways.

Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy

Another change for the 2023 Honda HR-V is that the EX trim has been dropped, leaving a streamlined lineup of three trim levels: LX, Sport, and EX-L. As mentioned, their powerplant is now a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which makes 158 horsepower – an increase of 17 hp over the previous. It’s coupled with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and standard front-wheel drivetrain (all-wheel drive is optional). According to the EPA’s official estimates, the redesigned HR-V with FWD achieves 26 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway; with AWD, it gets 25 city/30 highway.

Notable Amenities by Trim

The LX gets some great features for a base trim: auto on/off LED headlights, a rear roofline spoiler, remote keyless entry, push-button start, automatic climate control, two center console USB charging ports, a front console USB smartphone/audio interface, a 7-inch driver information display, electrostatic-touch second-row reading lights, a 60/40-split second-row seat, and a 12-volt power outlet in the cargo area. The Sport gets heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, a more prominent grille, chrome exhaust finishers, rear privacy glass, Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock (Honda’s advanced proximity entry/exit system), illuminated vanity mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, auto-up/down driver and front passenger windows, and heated front seats. At the top of the line, the EX-L goes back to the more straightforward appearance (without the special grille and chrome exhaust pipes seen on the Sport), but it adds a slew of great equipment. That list includes front and rear parking sensors, a power moonroof, a wireless phone charger, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, ambient LED interior lighting, an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and leather upholstery. Every trim is also compatible with HondaLink remote vehicle services.

Active Safety Technologies

All three trims are provided with Honda Sensing (collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, traffic jam assist, and traffic sign recognition). Automatic high beams and a rear-seat reminder are standard across the range. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert is added at the Sport level, and the EX-L also gets low-speed braking control.

Multimedia and Connectivity

LX buyers will appreciate the upgraded standard infotainment system, consisting of a 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, a four-speaker sound system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and SMS text messaging. The Sport adds another pair of speakers, and the EX-L receives the new 9-inch touchscreen system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, HD radio, and eight speakers.
