The sporty and spacious 2020 Honda HR-V begins arriving in Honda showrooms Nov. 18 with a starting price of $20,8201 (excluding $1,095 destination and handling). Fresh from an extensive refresh for model year 2019, the 2020 HR-V carries over the new attitude and bolstered lineup with new Sport and Touring trims and available Honda Sensing®, while maintaining its class-leading cargo space and class-above interior refinement.
The 2020 HR-V is available in five trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring. New for MY2019 were styling upgrades that included updated headlights and revised bumpers, grille and taillights. HR-V Sport with blackout trim and 18-inch wheels was added to the lineup last year and quickly became the second most popular trim. HR-V Touring, also new last year, features full LED headlights, fog lights, dark chrome trim, and exclusive 17-inch machined alloy wheels, along with an upgraded interior featuring double-stitched leather seats with 8-way power for the driver. Inside, HR-V Sport trims and higher receive a 7-inch touch-screen Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration.
Powering the 2020 Honda HR-V is a responsive 1.8-liter i-VTEC® 4-cylinder with 141 horsepower and 127 lb.-ft. of torque (both SAE net), connected to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Available on all trims and standard on Touring is Honda’s Real Time all-wheel drive system. Under most circumstances, HR-V operates in front-wheel drive mode to help save fuel, but when the system detects wheel slip, a clutch engages to send power to the rear wheels, enhancing stability and making the best use of available traction in foul weather, snowy conditions, or light off-road use.
Safety and Driver Assistive Features
Standard on HR-V EX and above is the Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies. Honda Sensing includes Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™) incorporating Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) incorporating Lane Departure Warning (LDW).
The 2020 Honda HR-V also features a long list of standard active and passive safety features, including Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with traction control, driver and passenger front and side airbags, side-curtain airbags with rollover sensor, Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist and Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, and a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines. HR-V earned a 5-Star Overall Vehicle crash safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and targets a Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), including a “Good” ratings in the IIHS’ small overlap frontal collision test and a “Superior” rating for front crash prevention when equipped with Honda Sensing.
