Honda HR-V VTi-S 2019 review: snapshot


The second level up the ladder in the Honda HR-V 2019 model range is the VTi-S, which starts at $27,990 plus on-road costs.

This spec sees the addition of keyless entry (smart key) and push-button start, auto on/off LED headlights, LED ‘optical style’ tail-lights, rear parking sensors, 17-inch alloy wheels, and Honda’s 'LaneWatch' side camera system. This version gets roof rails, too, which the base grade misses out on.

The interior of the VTi-S model moves up to chrome and piano black finishes, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather-bound gear-knob, and the passenger’s side vanity mirror is illuminated. Plus you get an extra pair of 12-volt plugs (one in the back seat, one in the rear), and a second map pocket in the back (the VTi has only one).

As with the VTi, this version has a 7.0-inch touchscreen with in-built satellite navigation system, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming and USB connectivity. Sadly, no model comes with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. The screen doubles as a display for the standard-fit reversing camera.

The safety features list has been improved for this facelifted model, with the addition of a low-speed auto emergency braking (AEB) system, known as 'City-Brake Active'. It will warn the driver and apply brake force at speeds from five-32km/h.

Powering all HR-V models is a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with 105kW of power and 172Nm of torque. The engine is teamed to a CVT auto, and all HR-V models are front-wheel drive only.
