What's New For the 2020 Honda HR-V?

After receiving numerous updates for 2019, the subcompact crossover 2020 HR-V hits the dealer lots, basically unchanged. The 2019 models boasted a redesigned front end, and the rear styling was also tweaked. The shape and style of the front grille and fascia were reshaped, and the taillight design was changed as well.

New trims were also introduced in 2019, specifically the Sport and Touring trims. On the inside, the center screen display was upgraded and included Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. The Honda Sensing Suite was expanded with the addition of several new driver aids. The 2020 models have these same features, and the sticker price remains about the same as last year's offerings.


2020 Honda HR-V Interior

Which Trims & Features are Available in 2020?

The 2020 HR-V is available in a total of five trims. The entry-level LX comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, a height-adjustable driver's seat, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a split-folding rear seat with the Honda Magic Seat feature, and a 5-inch central display screen. Bluetooth is included, and the four-speaker sound system comes with a CD port.

The Sport trim has 18-inch wheels, foglights, roof rails, and black-painted exterior trim. This version also has steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a 7-inch screen display. The stereo has six speakers, and smartphone app integration is standard.The EX comes with a sunroof, automatic headlights, and heated front seats. The EX-L adds on leather upholstery, and the Touring trim boasts LED headlights and foglights, a power driver's seat, and a navigation system with voice recognition.

A Perfect Blend of Power and Fuel Efficiency

2020 Honda HR-VAll 2020 HR-V models come with a 1.8L four-cylinder engine rated at 141 horsepower. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional except on the Touring trim. The Touring comes with all-wheel drive as standard. All trims have a continuously variable transmission.

Steering and handling are exceptional, and even with the smallish engine, the HR-V accelerates smoothly and with a noticeable lack of engine whine. The suspension system is well-tuned, and this dampens the shake and roll when taking tight turns. The HR-V is very well suited for low-demand city driving. There's not a lot of power from this engine, but the HR-V beats many subcompact rivals in the fuel efficiency department.

Safety Features in the Forefront for 2020

2020 Honda HR-VRegardless of trim chosen, the buyer gets a lot for the price paid. Standard across the trim lineup are antilock brakes, stability and traction control, a full set of airbags, rear door child safety locks, and a rearview camera. All trims but the base LX come with dynamic guidelines for the rearview camera, and the Honda Sensing suite is standard on the EX, EX-L, and Touring trims.

This package includes a forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning and mitigation. The available Honda LaneWatch system reduces blind spots by displaying the image of the passenger-side adjacent road lanes in the central display. The 2019 HR-V was awarded a perfect five stars for overall crash protection by the NHTSA, and the 2020 models are expected to receive the same scores.
