Honda HR-V Powertrain Review
Let’s start our review of the 2021 Honda HR-V by looking under the hood. When you do, you’ll find a 141-horsepower I-4 engine that also generates 127 lb-ft of torque. This pairs with an efficient Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that helps you get an impressive EPA-estimated fuel efficiency, as you can see below. These MPG specs are based on EPA estimates for all trim levels when equipped with standard 2-wheel drive (2WD).1
- City: EPA-estimated 28 MPG1
- Highway: EPA-estimated 34 MPG1
- Combined: EPA-estimated 30 MPG1
However, if you’re going to be traveling over changing roadway conditions, like rain, sand, or gravel, then you may want to consider the available Real Time All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with Intelligent Control System™. This AWD system is smart enough to actively adapt to your terrain to provide maximum traction control.
Interior of the 2021 HR-V
Now that we’ve seen what’s under the hood, let’s climb inside the cabin and have a look around. When you do, you’ll probably see a roomy cabin with space for a maximum of five passengers. You and your passengers will also get to enjoy the following dimensions:
- Passenger volume: 100.1 cubic feet
- Legroom (front/rear): 41.2/39.3 inches
- Maximum cargo volume: 58.8 cubic feet
As you can see, you get 58.8 cubic feet of total cargo volume when the rear seats are folded down. That’s enough room for a medium-size dog crate, a coffee table, children’s bikes, and more. With the rear seats upright, you can load up to 24.3 cubic feet of groceries, suitcases, sporting equipment, and more into the trunk space.
Something else you’ll probably notice when you enter the cabin is the infotainment system. This includes an available 7-inch touchscreen display in the dashboard between the driver’s and passenger’s seats. It’s compatible with available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, as well as standard Bluetooth® wireless, which allow you to use select smartphone features while you drive.
Many smart safety features are available, too, as part of the Honda Sensing® suite. This includes driver-assistive technologies like:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™ (CMBS™)
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
- Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)
- Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
Then there are features like available Honda LaneWatch™, which helps you change lanes more safely by showing a live video feed of your right blind spot when you activate your turn signal. Available Auto High-Beam Headlights also help you focus on driving in low-visibility conditions by automatically toggling your high beams on and off for you based on various traffic patterns.
