2016 Honda HR-V Arrives at Dealerships on May 15, Priced at $19,995

TORRANCE, California — The all-new 2016 Honda HR-V subcompact SUV arrives at Honda dealerships on May 15, starting at $19,995, including an $880 destination charge.

The starting price is for a base LX model with two-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission, according to a statement by American Honda Motor Co.

The HR-V, which slots in below the popular Honda CR-V, takes on a growing list of competitors, including the Chevrolet Trax, Fiat 500X, Jeep Renegade, Mazda CX-3 and Nissan Juke.

Standard equipment on the HR-V includes 17-inch alloy wheels, push-button electric parking brake, rearview camera, Pandora radio and Bluetooth.

The five-passenger HR-V is available in three trim levels: LX, EX and EX-L Navi. The midrange HR-V EX with two-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission starts at $22,045, including shipping.

The HR-V EX-L Navi with two-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) starts at $25,470, including shipping, while the top-of-the-line HR-V EX-L Navi with all-wheel drive and a CVT is priced at $26,720, including shipping.

All versions are equipped with a 141-horsepower 1.8-liter inline four-cylinder engine and either the six-speed manual transmission or CVT. The HR-V shares the engine with the Honda Civic.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not rated the 2016 HR-V.

The EPA has posted official fuel economy numbers on the HR-V. The highest-rated 2016 HR-V delivers 28 mpg in city driving and 35 mpg on the highway. It is a two-wheel-drive model equipped with a standard 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine linked to a CVT.

The same HR-V equipped with a six-speed manual transmission delivers 25 mpg in city driving and 34 mpg on the highway, and the all-wheel-drive HR-V with a CVT delivers 27 mpg in city driving and 32 mpg on the highway.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers are flocking to this growing segment, so look for the long-awaited HR-V to be a major showroom draw.
