2017 Honda HR-V Review
As the smallest SUV that Honda has to offer, the HR-V has developed a reputation for its skillful handling and functionality. These qualities make it an excellent choice for all your Gulf Port, Long Beach, and Biloxi adventures.
Are you unsure if the 2017 Honda HR-V is the right SUV for your lifestyle? Then, you'll want to check out this review by the Pat Peck Honda team, where we break down all its most important specs and features.
Safety Is the Top Priority of the 2017 Honda HR-V
The 2017 Honda HR-V is a vehicle built for rough roads. You only need to get behind the wheel for a few minutes to understand that. However, it has also been built to keep passengers safe, regardless of what the road conditions may look like.
In 2017, the HR-V was awarded a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. ¹ This commendation acknowledges its rigid framework, which has been fortified with Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™). ACE™ bodies utilize front and rear crumple zones to absorb and rebuff collision forces.
You'll also find a bit of protective technology in your HR-V. Features, such as Vehicle Stability Assist® and Traction Control, come standard to boost your handling. A multi-angle rearview camera is then added to help you park.
2017 Honda HR-V Performance Specs
As a smaller SUV, the 2017 Honda HR-V hasn't necessarily been designed to generate extra power. As a matter of fact, with a 1.8L inline 4-cylinder engine under the hood, it can only produce as much as 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque.
Nevertheless, this engine has been optimized to achieve higher gas mileage. When equipped with a continuously variable transmission, as well as the standard Eco Coaching, this SUV can easily maintain 31 MPG highway and 27 MPG city.²
Drivers can also add the Real Time All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System™ to their HR-V. This AWD system is more intuitive in that it can alter, depending on what kind of terrain you're faced with.
A Functional Interior for the 2017 Honda HR-V
In terms of space, the Honda HR-V falls somewhere in between the larger CR-V and the more compact Civic. In total, it offers drivers 100.1 cubic feet of space, with 23.2 cubic feet in the back for your cargo.
If you need to fold over the second row to maximize cargo space, however, it shouldn't be difficult at all. The 60/40 Split 2nd-Row Magic Seat® makes it easy to reconfigure your vehicle and fit in as much gear as possible.
Up front, you'll still have plenty of amenities and entertainment, including a 5-inch touchscreen with a 4-speaker audio system. Connect your devices using either a USB port, an auxiliary cord, or Bluetooth® to enjoy your media on the go.
