2018 Honda HR-V: Performance Specs
Providing smooth handling and comfort, the 2018 Honda HR-V is a great option for those seeking a safe and dependable commuter vehicle or comfortable long-distance rover. Its three trim levels offer a nimble, 4-cylinder engine that provides 141 horsepower that’s effortlessly managed by either a 6-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission with Sport Mode.
Its tight-turning radius and fine-tuned suspension makes maneuvering through busy traffic patterns feel effortless, while its electronic stability control system provides extra peace of mind when facing slippery road conditions. While front-wheel drive is standard, the HR-V does offer Real Time AWD with the Intelligent Control System„¢ that automatically adjusts the engine’s torque when it detects a loss of traction.
One of the major benefits of choosing a subcompact SUV is for its ability to use less fuel while still providing much of the benefits of the SUV class. The base LX trim, when paired with a continuously variable transmission, delivers an EPA-estimated 28/34/31 city/highway/combined MPG.*
To maximize fuel efficiency, the 2018 HR-V comes standard with an Econ Button that, when is use, will shift gears sooner than in normal driving mode while opening the throttle more slowly to decrease fuel consumption.

Its 60/40 split second-row Magic Seat® can fold down flat or flip up to provide maximum room all sorts of cargo. When fully flat, the HR-V offers 58.8 cubic feet of cargo volume, while it provides up to eight feet in length by folding down the passenger-side front and rear seats.
