Honda HR-V

What's on this page

Honda HR-V Australia

The Honda HR-V first graced Australian roads in 1999 as a quirky, two-door shooting-brake-style SUV.

As unique and interesting as the small, constant four-wheel-drive SUV may have been, it was discontinued after just two years on sale, despite the addition of a family-friendly five-door version in 2000 and a choice of two bullet-proof petrol engines from Honda. Revived in 2014, the HR-V returns as a less avant-garde, more traditional small SUV, with trim levels that range from $24,990 for the HR-V VTi to $35,465 for the HR-V VTI-LX Classic White Interior. All are centred around a single four-cylinder petrol engine powering the front wheels only.

Honda HR-V Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Honda HR-V here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Honda HR-V 2019: Why does the radio cut out when I use the sat nav?

    It doesn’t sound right to me that simply having the navigation turned on would preclude listening to the radio as well. The navigation will certainly cut across the radio when it needs to deliver the next direction, but beyond that it should just work away in the background. If that’s not the case, I’d say you have a problem within the system.

    My insiders at Honda tell me that the MY2021 HR-V (released last month) has an upgraded entertainment system that has been developed in response to customer input and is said to be a better all-round device with greater connectivity. At this stage, there’s no word on whether the system will be able to be retro-fitted to your model Honda, but there’s a chance that it might be. A chat with your dealer sounds in order.

  • Honda HR-V 2020: Will this model have an upgraded design?

    It’s anticipated that the HRV will get a minor upgrade only.

  • Dealer damaged my car

    Yes, I think the dealer is doing the appropriate thing. It’s not unusual for a whole door to be replaced; it’s easier and quicker to do that than repair the door panel. For you the end result is almost certainly better doing it that way. There’s no reason or justification to replace the car.

  • Would the Honda HR-V or Hyundai Tuscon make for a good family car?

    By buying a new HR-V you’re getting the benefits of driving a car that no one has driven before you, you know its history, so it’s a know quantity. By buying a used car you are gambling that it has been looked after, it hasn’t been crashed or damaged in any major way. You’re also buying a car that will have done upwards of 100,000 km, so its usable life going forward is reduced compared to a new car. As long as the HR-V fits your needs and wants it’s probably the best way to go.
