To meet with the rising demand of compact crossovers all across the world, Honda came up with HR-V. Back then, i.e. during the 90s it for the first time with a boxy and utilitarian design. However, since the global market has tilted its focus more towards SUVs and crossovers, so did Honda in 2016. What it came up with was all-newew bold and sharp looking second generation HR-V which not only changed the fortunes for the model, but also for Honda.

The Hi-rider Revolutionary Vehicle, which the HR-V stands for, is a 5-seater premium crossover. It sits between the 7-seaters from Honda in the Philippines, the BR-V and CR-V. Available only with a petrol engine option, the HR-V is offered in two different variants, E and EL. The car runs on a CVT transmission mated to a 1.8-litre petrol engine as standard in both the trims. Prices for the Honda HR-V in the Philippines start at Php 1,260,000, with the crossover available in six color options – Carnelian Red Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, Ruse Black Metallic, Tafetta White, White Orchid Pearl, and Lunar Silver Metallic.

Interior & Features

On the inside, the HR-V is again a typical Honda product which focuses more on sporty appeal. Like all the other Hondas, the all-black cabin has an unsymmetrical design and looks a mish-mash of thoughts. But surprisingly is very functional and practical.

The steering wheel here on the HR-V is something which we have seen on all the current generation Honda cars. The car features round themed buttons for audio, Bluetooth, cruise controls and silver garnish at the bottom. The instrument console complements with the sporty appeal of the overall car, thanks to the blue backlit console.

The centre console comes with a unique design which has a linear theme and comes with longitudinally placed AC vents on the passenger side. This looks very different from what we have seen on cars from this class. The 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system is tilted towards driver’s side, like in all the other Hondas, which is functional but misses out on many modern aids like advanced smartphone connectivity features and navigation. As far as space is concerned, the cabin feels slightly short on space, with limited legroom on offer and sloping roofline eating out the headroom a bit.

However, the cabin of the HR-V is fully loaded with the features one expects from a premium compact crossover, such as cruise control, push button start with keyless entry, electric parking brake, tilt and telescopic steering, leather upholstery, touch-sensitive panel for automatic climate control and electrical adjustments for rear view mirrors. However, given the competition is rising fast, a couple of more unique features would have been welcomed.


It was the HR-V with which Honda decided to make its SUVs and crossovers as snazzy looking as its sedans. The current generation HR-V, by all means, is one sharp looking crossover with a good amount of curves to make it feel modern and contemporary. This is true, considering the fact that this whole design is now nearly three years old.

The HR-V borrows a lot from its other stablemates. Take for instance, the front fascia. The wide front grille is typically Honda trait with the large and wide Y-shaped face which engulfs a hexagonal grille, atop of which sits a simple chrome finished strip with Honda’s logo sitting in between. The sharp and angular headlamps flanking the upper corners of the large grille makes you remind that of the Honda Civic. These units come integrated with full LED headlamps with LED daytime running LEDs, thus going with the modern trend of LEDs.

While the front end of the HR-V looks muscular, the side profile of the crossover smoothens out a little bit. The overall profile is more like that of a coupe than a boxy crossover, thanks to the curvy roofline. While the side body cladding and big diamond cut alloy wheels add some muscularity to the design. The two-door look thanks to the integrated handle in C-pillar and curvy roofline makes it look sportier than all the similarly spec crossovers.

At the rear, the HR-V looks slightly less dramatic as compared to the front, with the sharply raked windscreen and small tailgate design. Thus making it lose out on bulk appeal. However, the design is edgy here, which gets complimented by the presence of large and edgy but oddly shaped tail lamps.

Ride & Handling

The coupe-like profile of the new HR-V might confuse you about its driving dynamics. However, thanks to the large 17-inch wheels and a ground clearance of 198mm, the HR-V is capable of tackling all bad roads with ease. The HR-V comes with the industry standard McPherson struts at the front and torsion beam at the rear, which here, are set on a slightly stiffer side.

Engine & Fuel Consumption

For the Philippine market, Honda has equipped the 2018 HR-V with only one engine option – the tried and tested 1.8-litre four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol motor. The one we have already seen and experienced in the Civic for a very long time. The engine, in the typically Honda manner, is butter smooth and silent but turns wild and rev-happy when you want it too.  In the HR-V, this engine produces a maximum power output of 142 bhp along with a peak torque of 172Nm.

The engine is mated to a CVT transmission shared with the Civic and the City. However, the updated HR-V misses out on the paddle shifters which are present in the latter two.

Braking & Safety

Like all the other aspects mentioned above, the HR-V is a typical Honda car even on the aspect of safety. The car is well equipped with all the safety features one could expect from it, such as dual, side and curtain airbags, ABS, EBD, vehicle stability control, emergency stop signal, lane change assist, hill start assist, brake assist, electric parking brake, parking sensors, ISOFIX mounts and seat belt pretensioners with force limiters.


The Honda HR-V is a match-up of Hondas from the past coupled with new generation crossover touches. While the crossover impresses you with its edgy and funky design on the outside, the interior design might let you down with its quirky layout. However, following the family trend, the HR-V feels solidly built and its engine scores high on refinement and power delivery. The interior space and comfort might not match up to the high standards set up by the sedans from Honda, but mind that it’s a crossover, so it’s pretty good from that point of view.
