The Honda HR-V is a subcompact crossover first introduced back in 2016, when it was a new entry in the Honda lineup that slotted in just below the popular CR-V. Subcompact crossovers are growing in popularity thanks to their versatility, and the HR-V is Honda’s attempt to capitalize on this hot market segment.
Subcompact crossovers offer ample room for passengers with the flexibility for cargo, but with a smaller footprint that makes them appealing to those who drive in the city and those with small families. They also have a smaller price tag and better fuel economy than larger crossovers, so they’re a budget-friendly choice. Let’s take a closer look at the 2018 Honda HR-V and see if it’s the right car for you.
