2019 Honda HR-V price list opens at $20,520 in the US
Lots of tech and safety features for this one
For the HR-V 2019, Honda aimed to refresh the exterior look as well as add more technology into the mix. A new Sport trim is also on the table.
First things first. The US-bound 2019 HR-V features revised ‘revised bumpers, headlights, grille and taillights,’ says Honda, although the changes are rather subtle.
Cabin-wise, the revamped HR-V gets a new Display Audio setup with an interface that’s been simplified and made compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Honda says it also improved the navigation system which now sports slicker graphics and 3D landmarks.
The instrument cluster now features ‘a large analog speedometer and digital tachometer’ while EX models get a 4.2-inch TFT color screen that can display various information according to the driver’s choice.
The HR-V range is split into five trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. Except for Touring which is an all-wheel-drive-only choice, the other versions can be had with both FWD or AWD.
Every HR-V is powered by a 1.8-liter DOHC i-VTEC four-cylinder engine making 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque channeled through a CVT, as Honda decided it’s best to drop the manual gearbox for the HR-V 2019 model year.
The entry-level HR-V LX with front-wheel drive opens the pricing list at $20,520. Opt for all-wheel drive and the sticker goes up to $21,920. The most expensive HR-V you can buy is the range-topping Touring starting at $28,540.
