Relatively speaking, the 2017 Honda HR-V is a new SUV. However, the company’s efforts in interior packaging have seen the vehicle make a name for itself as the practicality-oriented choice among the new cars of the Honda brand. However, in spite of this, the vehicle missed out on a few features, which happen to be really important.
The 2017 Honda HR-V is not much changed from that of last year. There are three variants of the vehicle, which are the LX, EX and the EX-L trim levels. These come with a choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Also, depending on the configuration, there is either a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT. This makes the vehicle one to compete with other cool cars like the Mazda CX-3, Chevrolet Trax and Honda’s very own CR-V band of vehicles.
The best cars come with the most powerful engines. While the engine of the 2017 Honda HR-V might not be so much, it reportedly offers a modest performance. The vehicle comes with a 1.8-liter, inline-4, 141-horsepower engine. This is paired with either a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or a 6-speed manual transmission. Thus, this new car should feel strong enough to merge safely on highways and do so much more.
The ride quality is quite important. Therefore, Honda has designed the HR-V to be as confident and balanced as possible, n a way that most users would like. The steering is said to be balanced, and the body motions are remarkably well-controlled. In other words, the vehicle was built for everyday driving.
What makes this vehicle stand out among the cool cars is the comfort. The 2017 Honda HR-V has more than 100 cubic feet of interior space on the base LX trim, which makes it the most spacious vehicle of its kind. Back seats have ample space for adults to sit in without any sort of discomfort. If there’s any need, the second-row seats can be folded up to create even more space.
All told, the 2017 Honda HR-V is quite a nice vehicle. It’s not rated among the best cars in the world, but it surely would rank highly to users who like a bit of space in their vehicles.
