HR-V’s more emotional design features a low horizontal beltline begins with the extended hood and continues over the swell of the rear fenders adding athletic definition to HR-V’s sleek flowing forms and sporty profile. The low cowl improves visibility along with the outside mirrors, which are now mounted on the doors positioned away from the windshield pillars. Wide-set LED headlights and taillights highlight HR-V’s increased width (+2.6 inches wider) and sporty stance. HR-V’s overall length also has grown by 8.7 inches. In front, an expressive grille is flanked by air curtain inlets that route air through the bumper and around the front wheels, improving aerodynamic efficiency. In the rear, the sculpted hatch and standard tailgate spoiler highlight HR-V’s sporty proportions, and the outer edge of the taillights have been shaped to improve aerodynamics.
HR-V’s clean and sporty interior is more comfortable, quieter and more premium than before.HR-V is also notably quieter inside than its predecessor, with new sound absorbing inner fenders, sound absorption carpet and an acoustic windshield. The cabin is a fresh take on the “simplicity and something” design direction introduced with the 2022 Civic. Outward visibility is substantially improved thanks to HR-V’s low cowl, expansive greenhouse and outside mirrors that have been positioned away from the windshield pillars. Further improving visibility is the top of HR-V’s wide instrument panel, which has been designed with minimum cutlines to reduce windshield reflections, visual noise and distractions. Premium materials are used throughout the interior, especially on touchpoints, with close attention paid to the operation of all switchgear and controls including the click and heft of knobs, stalks and switches.

Powering all HR-V grades is a new, larger 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine producing 158-horsepower (SAE net at 6,500 rpm) and 138 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net at 4,200 rpm). The new engine represents increases of 17 hp and 11 lb.-ft. of torque compared to the outgoing HR-V. A new catalytic converter reduces emissions to the SULEV30 federal standard while using a minimum of rare metals. HR-V’s first Idle Stop system aids fuel efficiency.
To help minimize noise and vibration, HR-V’s 2.0-liter inline four has a lightweight die-cast aluminum block with a bedplate main-bearing design that creates a rigid crankcase assembly. Cast-in iron cylinder liners provide long-lasting durability. Thin slits between each adjacent cylinder sleeve help improve engine cooling and knocking.
Each journal on the lightweight heat-forged steel crankshaft is micro-polished to reduce internal friction, helping improve smoothness throughout the rpm range and lower noise levels.

Safety & Technology
The second-generation HR-V is a leader in crossover safety performance thanks to advanced active and passive safety technology that is standard equipment. HR-V features the latest version of Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) architecture, specifically designed to meet present and anticipated future collision standards, while minimizing additional weight. For the first time, HR-V features standard knee and rear-passenger side impact airbags.
HR-V features the new single-camera Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver assistive systems first introduced on the 11th-generation Civic. The new system features a 100-degree field of view which is twice as wide as the camera-and-radar setup of the previous system. It can detect feature points of a target and recognize attributes of objects such as a vehicles or pedestrians, as well as white lines, road boundaries such as curbs, other vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists and road signs. New for HR-V are Traffic Jam Assist (TJA) and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), as well as more natural responses for existing features, such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF) and Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS).
Additional driver assistive technologies include blind spot information (BSI) for the first time on HR-V. EX-L Navi grades feature four sonar sensors on the front and rear bumpers, which enable Low-Speed Braking Control and front and rear false-start prevention, reducing the likelihood of low-speed collisions.
HR-V now features a Driver Attention Monitor, which issues a warning on the dash if it senses the driver is becoming inattentive. A standard Rear Seat Reminder notifies drivers when exiting the car to check the rear seating area for children, pets or other precious cargo.
