The Honda HR-V made its initial debut in Japan in 2013, and later became available in the United States in early 2014. HR-V stands for Hi-Rider Revolutionary Vehicle, which was created to cater to the demand for benefits that go along with SUVs, as well as the versatility of a smaller car. With increased cargo capacity and great fuel economy, the Honda HR-V seems to be the perfect marriage of those two categories.
Because the HR-V had been a previous model in other automotive markets as a mini SUV, the 2016 Honda HR-V is currently in its second generation. The mini crossover vehicle is stylish, affordable, and efficient - ticking many boxes for car drivers when purchasing a new vehicle. With three trim level models to choose from, the 2016 Honda HR-V has something for everyone.
The Honda HR-V takes a step beyond the unexpected, by offering a special edition model of the HR-V, called the SLF, or “Selfie” edition. Driver’s of the HR-V SLF can capture various selfie poses with multiple built-in cameras throughout the vehicle.
It can truly be said that no other vehicle exists on the market quite like the 2016 Honda HR-V. While still new to the North American automotive market, the HR-V has already been catching the attention of various consumers throughout the U.S., and abroad.
The 2016 Honda HR-V starts at just $19,115, and gets an impressive 28 mpg rating from the EPA. With seating for up to five passengers, and 58.8 cubic feet of cargo space, the HR-V is versatile, convenient, and comfortable for everyone who goes along for the ride.
Every area of the brand-new HR-V was well thought out by Honda designers and engineers, and no part of the mini SUV was left out of that innovative design. Check out some areas that the 2016 HR-V exceeds expectations.
