"The words subcompact and spacious usually don't go together, but the Honda HR-V defies its petite classification with creative packaging."-Caranddriver.com

The 2021 Honda HR-V comes with the same 1.8L naturally aspirated inline-4 motor that is capable of producing 141 hp. Though the car is offered in four different trims, namely LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L, all of the trims get the same motor coupled with a standard CVT transmission. Starting at a base price of $21,020 for the LX trim and going all the way to $25,820 for the EX-L trim, the 2021 HR-V also gets an optional AWD for just $1,500 more.

On the interior and safety front also the 2021 Honda HR-V sees very little changes from the outgoing 2020 model. Apart from the addition of an all-new alloy wheel design and privacy glass for the Sport trim, the 2021 HR-V remains identical to the 2020 model. Nevertheless, it still retains all the features like Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, moon roof, and a host of advanced safety features like adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and automated emergency braking, all of which comes as an optional extra.

2021 Honda HR-V Buying Advice

The EX trim of the 2021 Honda HR-V, which is retailed for an MSRP of $24,615 for the FWD and $26,115 for the AWD, was found out to be the most value for money proposition of the lot. The EX trim, along with Honda’s powerful engine, gets features like heated seats, a premium infotainment system, moonroof, and smart entry too. It also is backed by a decent safety kit on offer. In comparison to the likes of 2021 Kia Soul and 2021 Hyundai Kona, we found the HR-V to be lacking in some essential features. Both of them also come at a lower price too.

2021 Honda HR-V Engine and Performance

7.2/10

"Although its four-cylinder powertrain is the opposite of quick and its ride can be rough on uneven surfaces, the HR-V delivers excellent fuel economy and is easy to maneuver in traffic."-Caranddriver.com

Powering the 2021 Honda HR-V is the same 1.8L naturally aspirated engine from the outgoing model. This 1.8L 4-pot motor, which does the duties on all the four trims, starting from a base MSRP of $21,020 and going all the way to $27,320 for the EX-L trim, continues to put out 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque and comes mated to the same CVT transmission.

2021 Honda HR-V gets the same 4-cylinder motor

 All trims will also offer AWD as an option which makes the 2021 Honda HR-V a true all-season vehicle. However, it costs $1,500 more than the standard FWD HR-V's.  Along with that, the multi-step CVT transmission does a decent job in putting the power down. However, it still retains the traditional CVT characteristic and feels quite lethargic when you put your foot down. The HR-V also comes with multiple driving modes and paddle shifters too.

2021 Honda HR-V SUV Accelerate 0-60 MPH in 8.4 sec

The 2021 Honda HR-V is the least powerful compact SUV here and it does feel like it in terms of real-world performance especially when you compare it to the likes of 2021 Subaru Crosstrek which sits on the opposite end of the spectrum and is easily the peppiest crossover here. Even though the performance numbers of the HR-V are not the best of the lot, it still manages to come out with the best-in-class 0-60 MPH and a quarter-mile time of 8.4 seconds and 15.5 seconds. The Hyundai Kona did the same 0-60 MPH in 8.6 seconds, which is followed by 2021 Kia Soul and 2021 Subaru Crosstrek, both of which gave out a time of 8.8 and 9 seconds, respectively.

The 2021 Honda HR-V offers supple ride quality due to its well-calibrated suspension setup, which could easily handle both city streets as well as freeways with ease. The high-speed stability is also commendable. Though this is not a performance-centric SUV by any means, we also found that the HR-V handled corners quite gracefully. The understeer and body roll was minimal too. With sharp brakes on offer coupled with direct steering which weighs up quite well as the speeds increase, the 2021 HR-V ticks most of the boxes when it comes to driving dynamics.

The 2021 Honda HR-V remains mechanically unchanged from the outgoing 2020 model and hence retains the same gas mileage too. With a city gas mileage of 28 MPG and highway mileage of 34 MPG, the 2021 Honda HR-V returns combined gas mileage of 30 MPG. With the inclusion of a 13.2-gallon fuel tank on offer, the 2021 HR-V gave out an excellent 396 miles of combined range.

The optional AWD variant of the HR-V will drop the mileage by 2 MPG in the city and 3 MPG on the highway too, which equates to a city fuel efficiency number of 26 MPG and a highway figure of 31 MPG. The CVT transmission is also tuned quite well to extract even more miles with a light foot. Along with that, the 2021 HR-V offers multiple driving modes too.

2021 Honda HR-V offers best-in-class gas mileage

The 2021 Subaru CrossTrek offers the least MPG figures, courtesy of its 6-speed manual gearbox. The 2021 Kia Soul also did slightly poorly in comparison to the HR-V by returning a combined rating of 27 MPG. The fuel capacity of 13.2 gallons and an impressive range with decent MPG on offer makes the HR-V a segment leader, which is closely matched by the Hyundai Kona. 

2021 Honda HR-V Interior

7.8/10

"The HR-V's interior is one of its best features, with plenty of room for adults to spread out in the front or back row."-Edmunds.com

The 2021 model of Honda HR-V remains largely unchanged from the outgoing 2020 model and the only noteworthy addition is that the Sport trim, which comes at an MSRP of $22,970, will now ship with privacy glass from the factory. The quality of materials used in the cabin is without a doubt, the best in class and it gives a sense of elegance and finesse too. Features like steering audio controls, rearview mirrors, and an updated Bluetooth connection will be included in the 2021 HR-V too. Many optional features like console illumination, interior ambient lighting, an auto-dimming mirror are available for an MSRP of $262, $131, and  $460, respectively. 

2021 Honda HR-V offers a premium cabin

The seating layout is set to be the same too, with comfortable Honda Magic seats being part of the cabin. There is also ample headroom and legroom for an average adult in both the front and rear seats. The taller people may face some problems that are not helped by a sloping roofline. However, the 2021 Kia Soul offers better headroom and legroom for the front seat passengers. Even for the rear seat occupants, the Soul offers more impressive headroom too. Nevertheless, the 24.2 cubic feet of cargo space on offer with the HR-V is the best in class, which is followed by Kia Soul with 24.2 cubic feet of storage.

The system is pretty intuitive and easy to use. All the current-gen tech features like a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM radio, 6-speaker audio system, and many more for all the trims except the base LX trim. The LX trim comes with a smaller 5-inch color display with 4-speaker audio system, which gets the job done pretty decently.

Honda HR-V is a subcompact crossover SUV while the Honda CR-V is a midsize crossover SUV. Since the CR-V is a size bigger than the HR-V it surely is roomier on the inside. The CR-V also gets a more powerful motor and even more safety and interior features in comparison to the HR-V.

Have Honda fixed the issues with the turbocharged motors?

Honda used to have issues with its turbocharged motors since it used to leak gasoline into the oil system which caused numerous issues like stalling. However, Honda has managed to completely rectify the issue with a recall.

2021 HR-V!

Pros - Fuel-efficient engines. Cargo space. Fine interiors.

Cons - Stiff ride. Underpowered engine.

Decent city Honda! I chose the new Honda HR-V for the cheap lease deal I got on the new model. Its been few months now with the HR-V and it has been a decent city car excluding the few dismal bits. It has got a really fine, good built interior designs. The fit and finish seems premiuim without a luxury brand stamp. The seats are quite comfortable and offer good support and even fold into quite easily to accomodate more cargo. Althougfh the 1.8L engine is quite efficient, it lacks a lot of refinement. The engine would feel gruff even whn its idling through. Also, the ride quality is a bit stiff and quite unforgiving over even small bumps! Todd was really great in helping me and my wife pick out the HR-V. I really loved the fact how it has become so easy to lease out a vehicle with minimal hassle! GReat team!

Spacious HR-V loaded with features with less money

Pros - "spaciou interiors, 5 start safety rating from NHTSA, fuel efficient"

Cons - Acceleration is slow

My honda isn't ideal for highways. I bought this trim as I was tight on budget though the accleration is sluggish as if it struggles to gain speed especially when 5 people are inside but looking at the safety ratings, space inside and some premium features like sunroof and passive entry, I chose this. The HR-V has so far proved to be fuel effiecient and I have got 30mpg on more than few occassions driving on highways Our second car buying experience from Ashland and not as enjoyable as the first one. The staff has changed over the years and we had to go through tons of paperwork to be able to get done with the finance process. The first time we were there in 2010, the process felt more like a no nonsense and trouble free where our sales rep( don't remember the name) had taken care of everything.
