2023 Honda HR-V Revealed

Author: |

Honda has officially introduced the all-new Honda HR-V for North America in 2023. The HR-V in North America is built on the most recent Civic and expands in size and price marginally.

The 2023 HR-V has a 43-millimeter larger wheelbase than the car it succeeds and is 239 millimeters longer overall. Because of the increased dimensions, the new HR-V is much closer to the larger CR-V.

Mesh-covered strip air vents, rotary heating controls, and the way the infotainment tablet fits in a scooped-out part of the dash-top are all features inside the cabin.

The new HR-V is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 158 horsepower and 187 Nm of torque. A CVT transmission sends power to the front wheels.

On the EPA's combined cycle, the new HR-V is rated at only 8.4 l/100km.

Unlike the Civic, the HR-V does not offer a 180-horsepower 1.5-liter turbocharged engine or a six-speed manual transmission.


The HR-V does have the option of upgrading from front-wheel drive to all-wheel drive for an additional $1,500 above the Civic. This year's AWD transmission, which can be customized via a mode dial on the console, can deliver more power to the rear wheels in slick circumstances, according to Honda.

It's worth noting that Hill Descent Control is standard on all HR-V trims and variants.

The new HR-V has a cabin that is remarkably similar to the Civic's.

The EX-L version of the latter includes wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity as well as a 9.0-inch display, although it comes at a starting price of $28,950.
