2021 Honda HR-V Review

  • Relatively roomy seating
  • Versatile for carrying cargo
  • Above-average fuel economy
  • Excellent outward visibility
  • Lackluster acceleration
  • Palpable engine noise and vibration
  • Touchscreen interface is difficult to use
  • Tinted rear glass now standard on Sport trim
  • Part of the first HR-V generation introduced for 2016

The Honda HR-V has been on the extra-small SUV scene since 2016 and has made a name for itself as a value-packed vehicle with a clever folding back seat (Honda calls it the "Magic Seat") and a comfortable ride. Honda hasn't done much to change the HR-V over the past five years, and as a result, some of its competition has muscled in on its turf.

The all-new and ultra-stylish Mazda CX-30 brings some real premium flair to the class, while Kia offers both the Soul and its new Seltos as feature-rich competitors. This once sparsely populated class also has competitive entries from Hyundai, Buick and Fiat, all of whom have had time to catch up to the HR-V's early dominance. The HR-V is in need of an update, but does it still have enough practicality and value to fend off its rivals? Read our Expert Review to get an in-depth take on the 2021 HR-V.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team
Spacious and fun to drive on curvy roads, the HR-V is a good choice in the subcompact SUV segment. Utility is top-notch, and it has a comfortable and quiet cabin. Unfortunately, the underpowered 1.8-liter engine is too noisy, and some of the tech can be frustrating to use.
If the HR-V had a bit more power, it would get a very high score in this segment. The steering and handling are top-notch. And thanks to a well-tuned suspension, the HR-V handles well and can put a smile on your face on curvy roads. Body roll is kept to a minimum, and the HR-V displays a good sense of balance.

The engine and transmission, however, are always underwhelming, leading to a less rewarding driving experience. The Honda HR-V's 1.8-liter engine is reasonably equipped to handle routine driving on flat ground. But it can feel stressed on long grades, during short freeway merges, or if you need to floor it to pass someone quickly. At the Edmunds test track, 0-60 mph took 10.4 seconds — one of the longer times in the segment.
Getting up to speed is not a comfortable part of the HR-V ownership experience because of the raucous noise from the underpowered 1.8-liter engine. The noise gets downright loud and whiny, and it is accompanied by vibration if you floor it. It's even noticeable when accelerating around town.

Once you're up to speed, though, the seats and ride quality are relatively good. The touchscreen climate control suffers from some usability issues, but the system controls cabin temps very well. The HR-V is certainly comfortable enough for a road trip.
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. The driving position is good due to lots of adjustability. Forward and side visibility is excellent thanks to well-placed and slim front pillars, a low dashboard, and a large windshield and windows. Rear visibility is good, and the HR-V's blind spot is very small thanks to large rear windows.

Many controls are easy to understand and operate, and we like the array of buttons on the steering wheel. But we are not fans of the touchscreen audio and climate control systems. The main touchscreen finally has a volume knob, but otherwise simple tasks require distracting glances and manipulation of the touchscreens.
The HR-V has some desirable safety features that used to be restricted to more expensive cars. Plus, it gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard on Sport and above trim levels. The voice controls and standard touchscreen controls are weak spots on an otherwise tech-friendly car.

In the EX and above trim levels, the HR-V includes Honda Sensing, which is Honda's suite of safety aids. Those include adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, lane keeping assist and lane departure mitigation. The systems work relatively well, although adaptive cruise control keeps a pretty long following distance — even on the closest setting.
The HR-V is the class leader when it comes to cargo space, both with the rear seats up and with them folded. And that folding rear seat is unlike no other. Cargo capacity is beat slightly by the Kia Soul (by only 0.2 cubic foot) but it's still excellent at 23.2 cubic feet, or 55.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded — much more than the Mazda CX-3 or Jeep Renegade. Car seat accommodation is good thanks to a big back seat, but getting a seat secured isn't as simple as we'd like.

Small-item storage, however, is not impressive. There isn't much space in the center console or in the doors for any of your small items. There are some interesting under-console storage areas, but they're small and hard to see and reach. The cupholders are merely average.
The HR-V does pretty well at the pump for a subcompact SUV with all-wheel drive. It's rated at 28 mpg combined (26 city/31 highway), which is above average for this class of vehicle.
For the money, the HR-V offers a lot of equipment, but savvy buyers may upgrade to a larger vehicle, such as Honda's own CR-V, for a similar price. The HR-V's warranty and cost of ownership are average for the class, with a few rivals offering longer warranties and the first scheduled maintenance for free. Fuel economy is good but no longer class-leading.

The inside of the HR-V is a well-built and attractive place. There are a few cheap plastics in the cabin if you look hard enough, and competitors such as the Mazda CX-3 and the Kia Soul offer a more pleasing aesthetic, but you're not likely to feel like you're driving a cheaply built car.
It won't stand out in a parking lot or wow your friends when you pull up to the softball game, but the Honda HR-V is pretty fun to drive relative to its size and price. For a bit more personality or style, we recommend competitors such as the Jeep Renegade, Kia Soul or Mazda CX-3.

Which HR-V does Edmunds recommend?

We like the EX for its mix of features and value. It's also the least expensive trim level to come standard with Honda's suite of advanced driver aids. Added to that you get a sunroof, heated seats and keyless entry for only a few thousand dollars more than the base LX.

Honda HR-V models

The 2021 Honda HR-V is offered in four trims: LX, Sport, EX and EX-L. All trim levels have the availability of all-wheel drive and are powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine (141 horsepower, 127 lb-ft of torque) mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission.

5/5 stars, Perfect car for me.
Lucie Bouchard,
LX 4dr SUV (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
I was pleased that Honda had a small SUV available that has so many excellent features, especially the safety features. It's cute and runs extremely well and is very fuel efficient. I'm still learning about all this car has to offer but very happy with it.
5/5 stars, Dependable workhorse
Pawel K,
EX 4dr SUV AWD (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
- Honda reliability. Older design for both the frame and the engine. Which means this will be reliable vehicle for years to come. All the kinks are worked out over past few years. - I don't care for audio system. It could use redesign. Specifically, I will be missing USB-C port and blutooth android/apple car play. - The engine is not as efficient as I would like and is underpowered but workable. That's my opinion. - CarFax indicates the dealer replaced batter on the day of delivery. Not sure what that was about. The HR-V had 48 miles on it when I took possession of it. - Roof rails, moonroof are nice on my EX AWD trim. - the Magic Seats is what sold this car to me. The second row lifts up, creating insane amount of space for such small vehicle. You can fit a bike in there. The second seat also folds forward, flush with the trunk. You can actually sleep in that SUV, fully stretched out. Nice. On top of that its 40/60 split. - HR-V EX is loaded with the safety features, lane departure, adaptive cruise control, etc etc. Side camera activates when the right turn signal is on. Its all nice. - In the end, this is a nice vehicle that I plan on keeping for about 6-7 years. Very happy so far especially with a nice financing deal I got.<br>
5/5 stars, 1,000,000 miles
Bobbulge,
EX-L 4dr SUV (1.8L 4cyl CVT)
After reading all the past reviews on Honda vehicles they say that most of them last 200,000 miles and some even make it to 1,000,000 miles. This was enough to get my attention and to change my mind on what type of vehicle I wanted. And it was a Honda.
5/5 stars, Botello family

Excellent vehicle I love it!

2021 Honda HR-V video

SPEAKER: The 2019 Honda HR-V is a subcompact SUV that does a great job of overcoming its size limitations. People and stuff, no problem. So is it our favorite little crossover? Man, the competition is steep. Let's see how the HR-V climbs that grade. [PLEASANT MUSIC PLAYING] We meant that metaphorically, but you can see and hear-- [ENGINE ROARING] --that the HR-V is working its tiny, little 141 horsepower heart out to make it up this hill. I don't want to harp on power output of the 1.8 liter four cylinder, but it's really just not enough. I know that that isn't important to everyone, but I really think that there's a minimal amount of power that a car has to have in order to be fun to drive. And the HR-V doesn't have it. I spend a lot of time wondering if I'm going to be able to get up to speed in time to safely pass someone, and that just takes all of the pizzazz out of your driving experience. There are three different driving modes in the HR-V. There's the regular D. There's S, which I'm assuming stands for sport, although I suppose it could stand for sassy or sexy or spectacular. It's really none of those things. It's a little bit faster feeling, a little bit more responsive. But even so, it's not in any way what I would consider a performance mode. There's also an economy mode-- a big green button on the left side-- and that's to get you the best possible gas mileage. Come on, come on. Oh, my god. It's so slow. Oh, I could barely do it. That was pretty pathetic. That said, the engine is very reliable, very predictable. It's not jumpy in any way. Both the throttle and the brakes are very gentle. If you're the sort of person who doesn't want your driving experience to be shocking in any way, then you will actually quite like the HR-V. Some of the other reviewers at Edmunds felt that the engine combo was very loud. I don't really notice that much engine sound unless I'm floored. And I was impressed that the HR-V doesn't have very much wind noise. It doesn't have very much road noise. It rides very smooth, which is kind of surprising for a smaller car on the lower end of the pricing spectrum. A lot of times, when you've got a car with a low price, you also get all shook to pieces. And we just went over a bunch of bumps. It wasn't a big deal. It's a very easy car to drive. And that's because these front pillars are very narrow, so visibility out the front is good. The windows are really large, so you don't really have blind spots. And everything is just very predictable, whether that's the throttle response, the braking, or the steering. It's definitely a car that I would recommend for somebody who was, say, teaching someone how to drive or getting their very first car. What little road noise and engine noise there is in the HIV can be easily drowned out by the infotainment system. You could play your music, podcasts, whatever. You won't even hear the noise. The infotainment system is OK in the HR-V. It's a little hard to use, because it's a little slow to load. And the buttons are virtual, so you can't feel where they are without looking at the screen. Again, I don't want to look at the screen. Happily, you can get Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. So you can solve all your problems by just using your phone. Honda makes very safe cars. And the HR-V, especially in the upper trims, comes with brake warnings, emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane assist warnings, and something that I hadn't seen before, which is, instead of having blind spot warnings in the mirrors as little lights or beeps, the rear view camera and side view cameras show you what's on that right side. It's a great idea in theory, except I need to be looking ahead at what's in front of me. And I can't see what's on the screen without taking my eyes off the road. And I think that's not a good idea. I would rather just have a little light that goes off in the mirror. The only engine and transmission combo that's available in the HR-V, no matter which trim level you get, is the 1.8 liter four cylinder backed by a CVT. You used to be able to get an HR-V with a manual transmission, which was pretty cool. But I don't know, maybe nobody bought them. You can't get it anymore. Only CBT for you. [UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYING] The HR-V is available in five different trim levels, from the $20,000 LX all the way up to the $28,000 Touring, which is what we're in right now. With Touring, you get all-wheel drive and a sunroof, a couple of safety suite features. You can option those in starting around the middle trim levels, I think around EX. And that's probably where you're going to get your best value. I've really liked the interiors in some of the Honda minivans and SUVs I've driven. The HR-V doesn't have that much going on in here. The materials are soft enough, very plain, pretty much all the same color and all the same texture. The most exciting thing in the 2019 HR-V is the volume knob-- actual physical knob. And if you've ever driven a car that had one of the digital controls for volume, you'll know that this is actually something worth bragging about. Unfortunately, all the rest of the controls for the climate and for the infotainment are completely digital. So no other buttons, no other knobs. And they can be kind of difficult to use while you're driving. And when you get in the car, before you turn it on, you're looking at a totally blank screen. You can't even see them. For some reason, that really bothers me. It seems so lonely. The steering wheel is comfortable, and it is full of different buttons and knobs. They're in weird places, though. All of the controls for setting up the safety things, like when it beeps at you to warn you that there's a car ahead of you and that kind of stuff, is down here with a back click button, which I don't really like. I would rather have it over here on the front, which is where I've seen it in most of the other cars I've driven. And then what's here on the front, which is source and volume, I normally find on the back of other steering wheels. And I feel like that makes more sense. Maybe it's just something I'm used to. But if you do get in the car and you're looking for those controls, you're going to find them back here, where you wouldn't normally look. There's also paddle shifters, which is-- I don't know-- kind of a vanity in a CVT car, but whatever. You can play with them. They make clicky sounds. It gives you something to do while you're sitting in traffic. Controls for adaptive cruise control and lane departure warnings are right here on the front, and they're pretty easy to use. The information is small, and when it's really bright outside, it's actually somewhat difficult to see. The gauge cluster is primarily digital with a physical needle for the speedometer. It's fine. It isn't very pretty, and it's also a little bit hard to see when it's very bright outside. The design element I like about the HR-V is the way that they did the center console. It's very slim. It doesn't get in your space, so you have plenty of elbow room. You have plenty of room for your hips. And even on the passenger side, it's not infringing on the passenger's leg space. The trade-off for having a small console is that you don't have as much storage space. So you do have two very large cup holders, but basically no console. You could maybe fit a very small Apple in there. You'll find two USB ports and the 12 volt charging below the console in this little pass through. It's a clever way to use this space. But if you have tiny T-Rex arms like me, you might find it hard to use. I found the front seats comfortable, but when I was talking about it with some of the bigger guys back at the office, they said they found them narrow. And they also felt that there wasn't quite enough leg room for taller drivers. There are not a lot of bells and whistles in the back seat of the HR-V. There's a 12 volt, no USBs. Cup holder in the middle, couple holders on the sides, soft touch materials. But there's really only one thing a backseat has to do, and that is be extremely comfortable with lots of room for people to sit in it. And it does. The seats are actually softer than the ones in the front. And this front seat is all the way back as far as it can possibly go, and I still have tons and tons of leg room. So if you had a short driver, man, you could just stretch out back here, be like, what's up. I'm going to live back here. Not only is there plenty of room for passengers in the back seat, there's plenty of space in the cargo bay. No, no, scratch that. Don't put people in the cargo bay. I'm just sitting here so you can see how much room there is. Not only does the HR-V have a lot of room, it has very smart room. You can put the seats down for any combination of people and stuff that you need to carry. So you can have just one seat down so you can still have somebody riding with you. Or you can put both seats down, They fold totally flat, and you can take a nap back here. There's 58.8 cubic feet of space with all the seats down, and there's 24.3 cubic feet with them up, which is still a lot of room for groceries. So I said that the HR-V had clever storage options, and this one's kind of the cleverest. Honda calls it the magic seat. Magic. Now you can put a lamp or a tall potted plant there, something that's too fragile to go in the back cargo area. The HR-V has a lot going for it. It's a great car for city living-- easy to park and economical on fuel. It's a Honda, so it's safe and reliable, which is perfect for college students or young parents. But it's been slipping in our ratings. And that is because the competition has been adding in more safety options, comfortable and attractive interiors, better engine and transmission combos, and then offering the results for less money. So if you're thinking of trading in an HR-V for another, take a day to scope out some of the newbies in the field, like the Hyundai Kona, the new bigger Hyundai Venue, the Mazda CX3, the Subaru Crosstrek-- there's a lot of fun to be had in small SUVs. Why settle for merely functional? If you're shopping for an SUV of any size, let us help you at Edmunds. [UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYING]

2021 Mazda CX-30

2021 Mazda CX-30

Honda HR-V vs. Mazda CX-3

The Mazda CX-30 is the newest, most stylish addition to the extra-small SUV class. It partners its upscale interior with athletic handling and lots of standard safety equipment to create the most premium-feeling vehicle in this class. But the HR-V offers better visibility, higher real-world fuel economy, and extra practicality thanks to its clever folding rear seats.

Compare Honda HR-V & Mazda CX-3 features 

Honda HR-V vs. Kia Soul

The Kia Soul is the consensus value leader in this class, offering a wealth of features, a good warranty and a lot of interior space. The Soul is also surprisingly fun to drive and offers a higher-performance turbocharged engine. The HR-V gets the nod when it comes to cargo space and its available all-wheel drive, but the Honda falls short with its dated infotainment and unrefined engine.

Compare Honda HR-V & Kia Soul features 

Honda HR-V vs. Hyundai Kona

Hyundai's Kona packs a lot of features and quirky styling into its diminutive size. It's fun to drive, and it can get even more fun with the optional turbocharged engine. And like the HR-V, the Kona can be had with all-wheel drive. The Kona's infotainment system is much better than the HR-V's, but the interior of the Kona lacks the clever storage of the Honda and feels a bit cheap in comparison.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Honda HR-V?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
