When traveling with your family around Cerritos, Los Angeles, and Long Beach, it’s great to be in an SUV with lots of room and plenty of features. The HR-V may be right for you, but you’ll need to learn more about it first before you can decide.
That’s why we here at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore Cerritos created this guide on why the Honda HR-V is the perfect family SUV. We’ll give you an in-depth look at this vehicle, so you can make an informed decision. Read about it below and contact us if you have any questions.
1. Plenty of Passenger & Cargo Space
The 2018 HR-V has plenty of room for five passengers, as shown in the following interior dimensions:
- Front headroom/legroom: 5 inches/41.2 inches
- Rear headroom/legroom: 3 inches/39.3 inches
- Passenger volume: 1 cubic feet
You also get lots of cargo space, with 24.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats and 58.8 cubic feet when those seats are folded down. Plus, with the 60/40 split 2nd-Row Magic Seat®, you can take advantage of multiple configurations to fit all your needed items inside the SUV:
- Utility Mode: Fold the rear seats completely flat to get the maximum amount of cargo room.
- Long Mode: Fold down the passenger-side front and rear seats to fit items as long as 8 feet.
- Tall Mode: Fold the bottom of the rear seat up and you’ll have up to 4 feet of vertical cargo space.
2. Advanced Technologies
The Honda HR-V offers many high-tech features to help keep you entertained and safe. It comes standard with a 5-inch color LCD screen, a 4-speaker sound system, and Bluetooth® technology to stream audio or make hands-free phone calls.
Plus, there’s an available 7-inch display audio system with high-resolution touchscreen along with a 6-speaker sound system. You can also get HondaLink®, which lets you connect your compatible mobile device to stream music, access social media, or schedule service appointments.
The 2018 HR-V comes standard with many safety features, including an Anti-Lock Braking System, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with guidelines. Plus, there’s the available Honda LaneWatch® feature. Whenever you signal right, a small camera on the passenger-side mirror will show live video feed of the roadway on the display screen.
3. Reliable Performance
The HR-V comes with a 1.8L i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine that delivers 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. It’s available in 2-wheel drive (2WD) or all-wheel drive (AWD). When the 2WD model is equipped with a Continuously Variable Transmission, the vehicle can achieve an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG.* This allows you to spend more time taking your kids to school and sports games and less time stopping at the gas station to refuel.
Furthermore, the available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ will transfer power to the rear wheels when it senses the front wheels losing traction. This way, you can focus on driving while the system works to keep you in control on less-than-ideal roads.
