2017 Honda HR-V – Honda is well known for producing fun-to-drive, fuel-efficient and fun-to-own vehicles at affordable prices. The new 2017 Honda HR-V is the latest of the breed and promises an excellent exterior visibility, a high-fuel economy, a versatile cargo loading thanks to the unique rear seat, and a spacious seating and interior. Its release date, should be expected sometime in January 2017.
Though the all-new Honda’s 2017 Honda HR-V has a hereditary similitude to the rest of Honda’s family lineup, it fits perfectly within the lineup as the “baby” while the Honda’s own Pilot and CR-V models take the “papa” and “mama” mantle.
Given the exponential growth, both in girth and sales of its popular CR-V, the automaker grabbed the opportunity to create the “baby” HR-V, which has been Honda’s entry-level sport’s utility vehicle. And according to the previous model’s trend, the model seems to be doing pretty well in the segment.
The 2017 models offer top fuel economy ratings, an available AWD, a sporty driving feel and an amazing collection of convenience and technology features for the money. There is plenty of utility as well. And similar to the Fit hatchback subcompact on which it is gets its mechanical underpinnings from, it retains the “Magic Seat” from the previous model and the feature continues to give the HR-V an idiosyncratic capability to take on long or bulky cargo items effortlessly.
If you are looking for a crossover sports utility vehicle but have realized the mainstays to be too expensive or big, Honda’s HR-V could be the automobile you’ve been longing for. Even in base LX trim, the 2017 Honda HR-V’s interior appeals with both its sleek styles and comforts. The gauges are visible and large, and most controls are intuitive simple to use. Ingress and egressing is fairly simple, and you’ll enjoy an interior devoid of gimmickry once you’re inside.
The new 2017 Honda HR-V is among the growing category of crossover subcompact offerings. Alternatives to consider include the stylish 2017 Fiat 500X, the distilled 2017 Mazda CX-5, the off-road capable 2017 Jeep Renegade, and the more powerful but less spacious 2017 Nissan Juke.
