2020 Honda HR-V Arriving in Showrooms with Available Honda Sensing®, Class-Leading Cargo Space

  • HR-V Sport offers youthful appeal with 18-inch wheels and blackout trim
  • Honda Sensing® standard equipment on EX and above trims
  • Enhanced technology features include available Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration

The sporty and spacious 2020 Honda HR-V begins arriving in Honda showrooms Nov. 18 with a starting price of $20,8201 (excluding $1,095 destination and handling). Fresh from an extensive refresh for model year 2019, the 2020 HR-V carries over the new attitude and bolstered lineup with new Sport and Touring trims and available Honda Sensing®, while maintaining its class-leading cargo space and class-above interior refinement.

The 2020 HR-V is available in five trims: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L and Touring. New for MY2019 were styling upgrades that included updated headlights and revised bumpers, grille and taillights. HR-V Sport with blackout trim and 18-inch wheels was added to the lineup last year and quickly became the second most popular trim. HR-V Touring, also new last year, features full LED headlights, fog lights, dark chrome trim, and exclusive 17-inch machined alloy wheels, along with an upgraded interior featuring double-stitched leather seats with 8-way power for the driver. Inside, HR-V Sport trims and higher receive a 7-inch touch-screen Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration.

Powering the 2020 Honda HR-V is a responsive 1.8-liter i-VTEC® 4-cylinder with 141 horsepower and 127 lb.-ft. of torque (both SAE net), connected to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Available on all trims and standard on Touring is Honda’s Real Time all-wheel drive system. Under most circumstances, HR-V operates in front-wheel drive mode to help save fuel, but when the system detects wheel slip, a clutch engages to send power to the rear wheels, enhancing stability and making the best use of available traction in foul weather, snowy conditions, or light off-road use.
