Honda HR-V Pricing and Specs
Honda refreshed its HR-V small SUV in August last year with low-speed autonomous emergency braking as standard.
Each version is powered by a 105kW/172Nm 1.8-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, which is paired to a continuously variable automatic transmission that sends drive to the front axle.
Starting with the VTi grade, the HR-V is equipped with a 7.0-inch multimedia touchscreen system with satellite navigation, Bluetooth connectivity and audio streaming, as well as climate control and an electric park brake.
Stepping up to the VTi-S nets buyers Honda’s Lane Watch blind-spot monitoring system, rear parking sensors, 17-inch wheels, LED headlights, push button start, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter.
RS variants gain 18-inch wheels, a sports bodykit, variable-ratio electric steering rack, automatic wipers, paddle shifters and rear privacy glass.
Top-spec VTi-LX versions bring in a panoramic sunroof, front parking sensors, power-adjustable driver’s seat, forward collision warning and lane-departure warning.

Honda HR-V FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Honda HR-V here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
My 2019 Honda HR-V flashing "Park" at me, what does it mean?
The problem sounds like a fairly major melt-down of some of the car’s computer systems which is leading it to think there’s a range of major issues that have all occurred at once. Modern cars use lots and lots of sensors that all feed information back to the computer that controls the driveline (the ECU) and everything else (the body computer) and if any of these sensors are kaput, the car can issue you with headlines like the one you’re seeing.
The good news is that it shouldn’t cost you anything to fix, a 2019 Honda is well and truly still within the factory warranty period, so it’s the dealer’s problem to fix, not yours. Even if you bought the car second-hand, the new-car warranty transfers to subsequent owners (you) so don’t be afraid to phone your nearest dealership and book the car in to be inspected, diagnosed and fixed.
The only catch in all of this is if the car hasn’t been serviced correctly. It doesn’t need a Honda-dealership service history, but it does need service-handbook proof that it has been maintained according to the manufacturer’s schedule by an accredited workshop. If it hasn’t, Honda (or any other manufacturer) can sometimes use that neglect as an out when it comes to fixing problems under warranty. If, for instance, you turned up with a three-year-old car that had covered 60,000km but had never had an oil change or service, you’d probably find the manufacturer would simply tear up the warranty on the spot, even if it was technically a five-year warranty.Show more
What car should I replace my 2011 Hyundai i20 with?
You’ve layed out some challenging requirements here. You’d like a small SUV with a bit of ride comfort and clearly a bit of performance too, given your question about the i30 N.
I think you’ll find the ride harsh on the i30 N, especially since you found the ride on the Kona harsh already. Keep in mind the i30 N is a hot hatch and has the suspension to match.
I find the Subaru XV has very nice ride comfort for the small SUV segment, but I also feel that you will be disappointed with the performance from its 2.0-litre engine. You may also want to consider the new Hybrid Toyota C-HR. The Hybrid drive gives it a smidge of extra kick and it’s a fuel consumption hero, too.
For a better blend of performance and ride, really only the Volkswagen T-Roc and Skoda Karoq are going to excel in the small SUV crowd. In terms of ownership both now have five year warranties, and you can (and should) pre-package five years of servicing on top at a discount.Show more
Honda HR-V 2019: Does it have adaptive cruise control?
One of the gripes with the Honda HR-V (I’ll assume that’s the model you’re talking about; there is no Honda HR-C) is that you need to pay for the very top-shelf model before you get the full safety package. In the HR-V’s case, that includes full forward-collision warning, autonomous braking and lane-departure warning. The catch is, you can’t even pay extra and option this package of the lower sped models.
In any case, it’s academic from your point of view, Noel, because even the range-topping VTi-LX misses out on rear-cross traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring and the active cruise-control you’re looking for. Plenty of the competition has these features and no doubt when Honda replaces the current model HR-V, those features will get a look in.Show more
