What's New in the 2017 Honda HR-V?

The HR-V was all-new last year and receives no changes for 2017. See the 2017 Honda HR-V models for sale near you

Which HR-V is the Best?

Our choice would be the front-drive HR-V EX. For less than $23,000, you'll get all the features you really need and then some. We know there'll be few takers for the manual-transmission models, but it really is the most enjoyable configuration -- so long as your daily drive doesn't involve hours and hours of traffic. An extra $800 will get you the CVT automatic, which also nets better fuel economy. Find a Honda HR-V for sale


How Much Does a 2017 Honda HR-V Cost?

The HR-V is offered in three trim levels: LX, EX and EX-L with Navigation. AWD is available on all trims, while a 6-speed manual transmission is offered on the front-drive LX and EX trims. The CVT is optional on those and standard on the EX-L and with all-wheel drive.

The HR-V LX ($19,500) features 17-in alloy wheels, a rearview camera, full power accessories, keyless entry, cruise control, a height-adjustable driver seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Honda's 60/40-split rear "Magic Seat," Bluetooth and a 4-speaker sound system with a CD player, a USB port and a media player interface. An available CVT automatic adds $800 to the base price.

The HR-V EX ($21,500) adds a sunroof, automatic headlights, foglights, rear privacy glass, keyless entry with push-button start, heated mirrors, automatic climate control, heated front seats, Honda's LaneWatch blind-spot camera, a 6-speaker sound system, an extra USB port, HondaLink smartphone apps and a 7-inch touchscreen interface.

The HR-V EX-L with Navigation ($25,000) adds roof rails, leather seats, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob, a navigation system integrated into the touchscreen, satellite and HD radios and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

As is typical with Honda, there are only a few dealer-installed options for each trim.

Honda HR-V Safety

Is the 2017 Honda HR-V a Safe Car?

The HR-V comes with a nice complement of safety equipment, including standard anti-lock brakes, electronic traction and stability control and a full set of airbags (front, side and full-length side-curtain). Although Honda's LaneWatch blind-spot camera is available, there are no accident avoidance tech features like lane-departure warning and frontal collision automatic braking available.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the HR-V 5-star ratings for overall and side crash safety, along with a 4-star rating for frontal crash safety. The non-profit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave it surprisingly disappointing results for a recently introduced car. Though it got Good marks in the moderate overlap front and roof strength tests, it only got the second-best rating of Acceptable in the side and small-overlap front crash tests. Its headlights were also deemed poor.

2017 Honda HR-V vs the competition

2017 Subaru Crosstrek -- The Crosstrek is really just a compact hatchback with lots of ground clearance, but that's not a bad thing. Its range of virtues is comparable to the HR-V.

2017 Jeep Renegade -- The Renegade offers more power and features, as well as real off-road ability. But the Jeep costs quite a bit more than the HR-V, and Jeep's repair and reliability record can't hold a candle to Honda.

2017 Mazda CX-3 -- The CX-3 manages to match the HR-V's excellent fuel economy, but it does so while delivering best-in-segment acceleration. It's also great to look at and drive. Unfortunately, its interior is tiny.

Used Kia Soul -- A 2012-2015 Kia Soul offers more cargo and rear-seat room, and even sold as a certified pre-owned car, it offers the same 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty as a new HR-V. The Soul doesn't offer AWD, however, and its fuel economy is not as good.
