Overall good car - great headlights

First, I'd like to say these reviews saying it lacks power are not true. It has a CVT transission, which is not noisy, but makes it a smoother ride where you don't feel the trasmission shifting, maybe this is mistaken for lack of power. Not a sporty race car, but plenty of power for merging and hills. I'm at 80 mph before I know it. The transmission sound takes a bit to get used to because it doesn't shift, but it's not bothersome. Gets you in and out of traffic, easily. Drives and handles very well. Goes through snow easily - we live in the snowbelt and it has performed well. Lots of room. hough I do get other drivers flashing their brights - I don't care I can see really well. The headlights are fantastic, altNow for the bad. I don't like the Hankook tires that came with it, but that's because in my experience, they don't last. The seats are hard and uncomfortable. The backup camera is close to useless - it's always obstructed by snow or rain and doesn't have good vision in the dark. I hate the postion and type of fuel gauge, it's very hard to see and read. It'll look like it reads 1/4 tank, then the low fuel light comes on. The radio gets very poor reception and no cd player. I don't like all the added technological features, I don't care if it has Apple Car Play. The manual that comes with the car is lengthy and in fine print. The outside mirrors are too small. We looked at several other vehicles. A lot of dealerships were charging over MSRP or making up abbreviations trying to take advantage of the customers. Even at Honda dealerships. we were having a hard time finding an honest dealer. Our local dealership, Victory Honda in Austinburg, Ohio, wanted @$5000 over MSRP and tried to lowball us on our trade-in. We call Apostalikis Honda in Cortland and they gave us MSRP plus a good price on trade-in. We saved close to $8000. So, don't accept these dishonest dealerships. Honda should do something about this thievery. All-in-all, we felt it was the best value out there, and we really liked how it handled. Also, we've always had good luck with Hondas, and we feel confident in their dependability. Everyday mixed driving we get almost 31 mpg.

Huge Improvement over previous HR-V

The 2023 HR-V is a major improvement over the 2020 HR-V I owned. The ride is better, the engine has more HP and the interior looks was more upscale than the previous version. With the EX-L, along with the normal safety features, it also comes with parking sensors, low speed braking and blind spot monitoring. The rear view mirror is also auto dimming. The 8 speaker sound system is adequate. It is also nice that the EX-L comes with a power drivers seat. All things considered, I am very happy I upgraded to the 2023.

bring a cushion

The overall car is great. Above average. The front seats are very hard but plenty of room up front, The back seats are better but bring cushion for long rides. Love the outside styling better than the competition. Got a great grey color and the black interior is attractive and well appointed. It has enough power to get along. I didn't buy a hot rod! Fuel economy is very good. I finally sold an 18 yr old Element to buy this and I'm happy. Honda really needs to do something about the hard front seats.

Not comparable with 2022 HR-V in any way

2023 Honda HR-V LX 4dr SUV (2.0L 4cyl CVT)

Over the summer I purchased a 2023 HR-V LX. Coming from a Honda Pilot V6, I had to lower my expectations with power but it is actually pretty quick on the highway once you are up to speed. A bit slow from 0-20 mph but hey, it is a four cylinder CVT SUV, I can't demand too much from it. The styling is great in my opinion. If you told me 4 years ago this would be an Acura product, I would believe you 100%. The color combo I have is white exterior and beige interior. The cloth is very nice and heavy duty, but can get dirty. I am never lacking for any room, very comfortable in any seat and I am 6'1. The suspension is very well calibrated. It is Always nice and composed for a small SUV. The infotainment is good as well. The speakers are good for a base model. One thing that I don't particularly like is the adaptive cruise control. I come from an old car with regular cruise control and I would prefer that any day of the week over the adaptive one. Even on the closest following distance it is very aggressive. It starts braking and then rides the brakes for a bit until the car infront speeds up. I would not be able to use this on the highway. I am not sure if only Honda's are this aggressive with the adaptive cruise but just know it is very aggressive. Overall, it is very nice car, even the base model. If I met someone who was in the market for a small SUV, everytime I would say 2023 HR-V.

Great style, mediocre performance and features

Having had a CR-V for a couple of years, and loving it, we decided to buy a second Honda, the redesigned HR-V. After driving it for a little over a year, here are the goods and bads. Overall, if I could go back to my purchase decision, I would not buy this car again. Good: styling, cargo space, eespecially when seats are folded down, wireless Android auto, interior layout, especially center console, and safety features work great. Bad: gas mileage is average at best, lacks power- especially for gas mileage it gets, push open gas cap has malfunctioned at least 6 times, twice causing the latch on the door panel to break, seat belt mechanism has stuck repeatedly, back seats lack any creature comforts- no devoted power or fold down center for drink holders, no assisted lift gate, wireless charger only works about 75% of the time, trade in value at this point is very low compared to retail price
