Times are changing, and the 2019 Honda HR-V is keeping up. This year, Honda's sporty crossover gets a revised exterior along with the addition of new standard safety and technology features. Along with more goods and gadgets for your money, this year's HR-V has the simple but surprisingly helpful addition of a knob to control the audio-infotainment system. On the outside, it gets a new chrome grille and LED headlamps for improved visibility. With these changes, it bears resemblance to the Civic and the Vezel, which is its twin in the Japanese market. The HR-V family expands this year with two new trim levels called the Sport and the Touring. The choice of two new wheel designs makes the latest HR-V more stylish than ever.
Trim options in the latest HR-V start with the base model called the LX. The LX comes standard with a number of desirable amenities including split-folding rear seats, a backup camera, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The base model has a five-inch color display screen with Bluetooth audio and a USB audio interface. The base HR-V also has daytime running front LED lights and LED brakes to reduce the risk of rear-end crashes. The Sport builds on that list with a seven-inch infotainment screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It also has two USB ports and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. On the outside, a rear roofline spoiler, roof rails, and fog lights give the trim a distinct look. The EX comes next. It has heated front seats, a power moonroof, a keyless smart entry, and the Honda Sensing safety package. The EX-L adds to that lineup an auto-dimming rearview mirror, leather seats, and an impressive 180W sound system. Topping the list is the Touring, which is one of the new trim levels available in 2019. The Touring features LED headlights that can be manually operated. It also has a navigation system with satellite connection. The driver's seat in this trim level can move in eight ways.
One notable feature, which is standard on some trim HR-V levels and optional on others, is Honda's premier Sensing safety package. This package, which is standard on the EX and higher trims, includes adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, road departure warning and avoidance, and collision mitigation, which automatically applies the brakes if the car detects that a frontal accident is inevitable.
When you choose your HR-V, you'll be able to choose from several powertrain configurations. The sole engine in the HR-V is a 1.8L, four-cylinder engine that generates up to 141 HP at 6,500 RPM and up to 127 LB-FT of torque at 4,300 RPM. The engine comes with an Eco mode that maximizes fuel economy. It also has hill start assist and an electronic parking brake. The engine is available with either a FWD or an AWD powertrain. Manual transmission is not available in the 2019 model year, but the vehicle still comes with an automatic continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Stylish on the outside and well-equipped on the inside, there is no reason not to love the latest HR-V crossover. This SUV gets just enough changes to make it competitive in the 2019 model year without losing its original appeal. The HR-V offers a number of trim levels to choose from, which gives you plenty of options in finding the car that's just right for you.
