Spec-checking the Honda HR-V

Spec-checking the Honda HR-V

Sharing a technical blueprint with the outgoing Jazz, the Honda HR-V crossover blends the flexible cabin the hatchback was known for, a tall ride height, and sporty dynamics specialty of the carmaker. 

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What are the highlights of the Honda HR-V?

    The HR-V borrows the ULT seats from the Jazz. With the ULT seating configurations in the HR-V's cabin, various cargo loads can be carried by the vehicle.
  • How much is the Honda HR-V?

    The HR-V goes for P1.296 million and P1.515 million for its two variants.
  • While its smaller sibling has made way for the City Hatchback, there's a chance the HR-V might pass the baton to its newer version, which has appeared in Europe and other markets. The new car looks promising with its hybrid tech, but that's not to say the current HR-V is a has-been. 

    Despite pushing seven years, the HR-V still has many qualities going for it. 

    For starters, the subcompact crossover manages to stand out from the herd with its appearance. Depending on the variant, the HR-V features LED lights front and back, 17-inch wheels, and power folding side mirrors. On the other hand, LED fog lights and black 17-inch alloy wheels also, well, jazz up the look. 

    Honda HR-VAll of these exterior enhancements decorate a body that features headlights blending into the grille, which is the Honda family face. On the sides of the HR-V, there are swooping character lines that run toward the rear door handles mounted to the rear doors, which trick the eyes into seeing at first glance that the car is a two-door. 

    Honda's signature ULT (Utility, Long, Tall) seats — first seen in the Jazz, this HR-V, and is now fitted to the City Hatchback — has stood the test of time. ULT allows for three different adjustment modes of flexible seat configurations.

    In Utility mode, the HR-V's rear seats fold to become level with the floor of the cargo hold, in order to create a flat loading area for bulky items. In Long configuration, the passenger seat folds backward so that the cabin can fit lengthy objects, like a surfboard. The Tall mode means that the rear seats' cushions fold upward like cinema seats, to allow space for plants, for example. 

    Honda HR-V

    The cabin is as well-equipped as it is practical, featuring a seven-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HDMI connectivity, as well as push button start. The HR-V's seats and tiller can come leather-wrapped, while the infotainment can be equipped with a navigation system. Adding to the convenience features are rear parking sensors and smart key system. 

    Below the infotainment sits the HR-V's touch panel air-conditioning controls, which were once considered to be a tech breakthrough in the segment. On the other hand, physical buttons on the steering wheel say that if it ain't broke...

    Honda HR-V

    At least the powertrain has proven to be a reliable motor. The HR-V's 1.8-liter i-VTEC engine, with Honda Earth Dreams Technology for maximum efficiency, produces a maximum power of 140hp and 172Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) that drives the front wheels only. 

    Does crossing over to the HR-V sound good to you? The good news is the HR-V, along with its stablemates, is available with cash discounts at the moment. And much better, you have the spec sheets of the two HR-V variants at your disposal.
