The 2020 Honda HR-V begins arriving at the U.S. dealerships. The base price without a destination charge is $20,820.
The model underwent a significant upgrade for 2019, when new Sport and Touring trims were added and caught on. For 2020, minor changes are made. The car’s cargo space (24.3 cubic feet) remains the best-in-class.
The Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver assistance systems comes standard on EX and above trims.
It helped the Honda HR-V get 5 Stars from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).
Five trims levels are offered for the 2020 model: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring.
The 2020 Honda HR-V is powered by a 1.8-liter i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine making 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque, matched with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).
EPA-rated combined fuel comsumption is 28-30 mpg.
Honda’s Real Time all-wheel drive system is standard on Touring and available for all configurations.
Usually the HR-V operates in front-wheel drive mode for fuel efficiency, but if the system detects wheel slip, a clutch engages to send power to the rear wheels, to enhance stability and use traction at the best in harsh conditions.
