Honda HR-V: A Simply Scintillating Subcompact SUV
When you are in the market for a subcompact SUV, it’s a given that fuel efficiency is at the top of the consideration list. What if, however, a small SUV like this could also serve as a competent cargo hauler, as well? Think it’s impossible? Think again. That’s exactly what Honda has delivered in the form of the HR-V.
How did Honda do it? It’s magic. We’re talking about the Magic seat option specifically. This feature also found in Honda’s Fit model allows you to lift up and flip the rear seat bottoms, which creates a cargo area from floor to ceiling in the vehicle. Keep those seats up in the Honda HR-V and you’ll find surprisingly roomy seating accommodations for a vehicle of its size, as well.
Here’s another reason to consider the HR-V if you are in the market for a subcompact SUV: it’s a Honda brand vehicle. For multiple decades, Honda has been producing some of the highest quality and most dependable automotive offerings on the roads in and around Bradenton, North Sarasota, and Lakewood Ranch. Every Honda model like the HR-V is built to last for many years and miles down the road when you provide it with timely maintenance and care.

The History of the Honda HR-V
While the Honda HR-V may be a somewhat recent addition to the Honda lineup in North America, it has actually been around for quite some time. The HR-V was available in markets throughout Japan and the Asian Pacific region during the 1999-2006 time period.
Honda, seeing that the crossover market in North America had reached red-hot sales levels, made the decision to bring the HR-V to dealerships all across the United States and Canada for the 2016 model year. The HR-V was viewed as a shorter version of the CR-V (it’s approximately ten-inches shorter than the CR-V), yet offered up to 58.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the help of Honda’s Magic Seat function. The 2016 Honda HR-V sported a 1.8L i-VTEC engine that offered 141 horsepower along with outstanding fuel efficiency.
