2018 Honda HR-V Review

2018 Honda HR-V keeps this manufacturer on the top of the list of the best SUV manufacturers in the world, again. As we could see on first photos, they have made an effort to provide very interesting and attractive cute model, with many redesigning, but still, not many changes, to provide the similarity and traditionality under the new design. That is the reason why new buyers will be satisfied how it looks like, and why Honda is always interesting to buyers. We can promise new and redesigned cabin, too, together with some novelties in term of engine strength and performances.

Exterior


Recognizable front grille shaped in letter V is not much changed in new 2018 Honda HR-V, but this time it is better stylized and has soft curved lines on the sides, so easily ends in LED lights. All are incorporated in hood line, making the whole front end more rounded and soft. However, to provide more sporty and muscular shape, new Honda has a wide bumper with protection on the bottom and small rounded fog lights. Rounded rear end logically ends of the sloping roof, and there are also modernized rear lights and simple truck door.

Interior

As we said, the main changes are in the cabin of 2018 Honda HR-V, thanks to the many new devices and high technology, but it is also roomy and spaced cabin, with quality fabric in there. The manufacturer has not spared the time to make complicated dashboard, putting simple and useful table instead of it. There is small, 5-inch touchscreen with important commands and many useful helpers like a rearview camera, pre-collision alert, and cruise control. Even though there are similarities with Accent and Civic, the cabin in HR-V is simpler and not that much stylized as on other models from this manufacturer.

Engine

When it comes to engine, 2018 Honda HR-V offers small but useful 1.5-liter four-inline in the base model, even though there are expectations that higher versions could get 1.8-liter under the hood. The strength of 141 horsepower and 121 pound-feet of torque could be enough for the average driver, while the increasing speed is measured at 10 seconds, which is acceptable for this sized cars. Higher trims could be even stronger and faster, in combination with larger 18-inch wheels.

2018 Honda HR-V Price

We can complain about the design and shape of 2018 Honda HR-V, as it is the small and simple car for daily driving. The price of $19,000 for base model promises great selling season among average buyers.
