What the Critics Say

Aside from being larger, this platform also comes with a new multilink rear suspension Honda promises will increase both ride comfort and handling performance compared to the old torsion-beam setup. We think the new Civic handles great, so it bodes well for the HR-V.” – MotorTrend
This new HR-V looks more mature, even a bit upscale. Gone are the odd high-mounted rear door handles. They’re replaced by traditional grips. The body is sculpted with smooth curves that move the look closer to that of the latest Honda SUVs and away from the crisp creases seen in Honda’s cars.” – Consumer Reports

What’s New For 2023

For the 2023 model year, the dynamic Honda HR-V returns with an extensive redesign both inside and out. Beginning with its foundation, the all-new HR-V now rides on a new platform that it shares with the 11th-generation Civic. As a result, it now benefits from a longer wheelbase, more powerful 2.0L engine, and a reimagined exterior look. Once you take a seat behind the wheel, you’ll appreciate its refreshed interior highlighted by a minimalist dashboard layout, new driver-assist features, and innovative new technology. As a result, the Honda HR-V is the clear leader in the subcompact SUV class.
