The HR-V is ideal whether you're running errands around town or packing up for a weekend at Lake Sinclair.

With a new model year arriving in showrooms, drivers across the region are looking to highlight what this crossover can offer you. Check out this 2018 Honda HR-V review and learn all about the features, performance, seating and driving experience you can expect, as well as where you can go for a test drive.

2018 Honda HR-V Engine & Fuel-Efficiency

The 2018 Honda HR-V is a crossover built for versatile driving and efficient performance. It has a standard 1.8L 4-cylinder engine with intelligent Variable Valve Timing and lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC®) that gets 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque.

You'll have a choice between two transmissions to pair with this engine. The first is a 6-speed manual transmission, while the other is a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with sport mode. Both i-VTEC technology and the CVT allow the 2018 Honda HR-V to run more efficiently. It gets an EPA-estimated 28 MPG city and 34 MPG highway[1].

With its solid fuel-efficiency and intelligent technology, the 2018 Honda HR-V has been certified as a Ultra-Low-Emission Vehicle by the California Air Resources Board.

Storage Space & Seating

Inside the 2018 Honda HR-V, you'll find even more intelligent design. The trunk space has 24.3 cubic feet of space for cargo room, but there's a couple ways to store more cargo. The back seats can be moved around in two ways with the 60/40 split 2nd-row Magic Seat®. Fold the seats down to create 58.8 cubic feet of space, or prop one of them up to store objects that are better off upright. Putting a seat in Tall Mode gives you nearly four feet of space to store a plant or a lamp without laying it on its side.

Roof rails are also available for any larger cargo that you'd prefer to tie up top like kayaks or a Christmas tree. When you're not loading your car with cargo, you can safely and comfortably fit five people in the Honda HR-V. The driver and front passenger can stretch out with 41.2 inches of front legroom, while passengers in the back have 39.3 inches of rear legroom.

2018 Honda HR-V Safety & Technology

Safety, convenience and infotainment technology abounds inside the 2018 Honda HR-V. Infotainment and safety features are driven by either a 5-inch LCD or a 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen. This system also gives you easy voice activated control and the ability to make hands-free phone calls with Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®. You'll also be able to see what's around you with a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, while the available Honda LaneWatch™ uses cameras on the side to help you keep an eye on your blind spot.
