2018 Honda HR-V Features
One of the latest models in the Honda family of vehicles is also one of its most exciting. In production since 2016, the Honda HR-V is a compact crossover that is just as reliable and practical as it is fun. With the features and specifications for the 2018 model year officially announced, it is clear that Honda continues to deliver with this new and improved Honda HR-V. Continue reading to see just some of the 2018 Honda HR-V features.
One of the greatest benefits of having a compact crossover like the 2018 Honda HR-V is that, despite being a smaller vehicle, you get significantly more engine power than you would from the typical sedan. The 1.8L engine in the new HR-V generates an impressive 141 horsepower, more than enough for this crossover to have some get-up-and-go.
Additionally, the new Honda HR-V comes standard with a 2-speed continuously variable transmission, or CVT. This innovation in transmission technology means easier acceleration and a smoother ride for the driver. Best of all, because it is still a compact vehicle, the 2018 Honda HR-V does not sacrifice gas mileage, at 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.
Another fantastic element to the 2018 HR-V is the spacious cargo capabilities it gives you, without the bulk of an SUV. One of the coolest and most unique cargo features in this vehicle is the 2nd-Row Magic Seat®. This feature means that you can configure your seats in numerous different ways to accommodate countless different types of materials.
With the rear seats folded flat, the new Honda HR-V has as much as 58.8 cubic feet of total storage space. The vehicle also has long mode, which involves folding the front passenger seat down, and can accommodate the HR-V to fit items up to 8 feet long. You can also fold the bottom half of the back seats upwards for tall mode, which makes it possible to fit items up to 4 feet tall.
