Specs & Fuel Economy

Honda HR-V Engine Specss

The 2020 Honda HR-V offers a sporty drive and excellent fuel economy. It runs on a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. This works with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Together, they help the HR-V get up to an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG for trim levels with 2WD[i].

It’s also prepared for tough terrain. The 7.3-inch ground clearance makes it easy to navigate potholes, trails, and bumpy roads. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but Real Time All-Wheel Drive (AWD) with an Intelligent Control System™ is also available.

Interior Dimensions

The Honda HR-V has seating for five with 100.1 cubic feet of passenger space. The interior offers a comfortable ride with cloth seats, but leather upholstery is also available. You can also add amenities like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat.

Up front, there’s 39.5 inches of headroom and 41.2 inches of legroom. The backseat features 38.3 inches of headroom and 39.3 inches of legroom. There’s also space for three people to sit together with 54.5 inches of rear shoulder room.

On top of being able to stretch out, there’s also plenty of space for your cargo. The trunk features 24.3 cubic feet of cargo room, while the 60/40 Split 2nd-Row Magic Seat® gives you lots of ways to load more. Fold the back row down, and you’ll have 58.8 cubic feet of space. If you fold the front passenger seat down too, you’ll be able to load cargo that’s up to eight feet long. You can also flip the backseats up to get four feet of space from the floor to the ceiling.
