2016 Honda HR-V Release Date and Debut

November 24th, 2014 by

All new HRV

The 2016 Honda H-RV is a stylish compact utility vehicle that just debuted at the Los Angeles Auto Show this late November. Part of Honda’s Urban SUV Concept, the H-RV belongs to a class of sleek, maneuverable crossovers, including the Honda 2015 CR-V and 2015 Honda Fit. As far as we know, the new HR-V emphasizes capability and interior versatility. As it shares the same platform as the Honda Fit—and will even be manufactured in the same factory—it’s probably safe to assume that it also emphasizes fuel efficiency, and will make for a fine family option. While we don’t know everything about what the 2016 Honda H-RV will offer, its release date is slated for spring of 2015, so details ought to emerge rapidly. So far, here’s what we do know.


While it has long been kept secret, Honda has recently revealed that the 2016 Honda H-RV will receive a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that is capable of 138 hp and 127 lb-ft of peak torque, which you’ll be able to pair with a 6-speed manual or a continuously variable transmission. While there are no EPA estimations regarding its fuel efficiency yet, the H-RV’s dynamic transmission options suggest promising things. Finally, this power train will be available in either front- or all-wheel-drive.


The 2016 Honda H-RV is notably well-equipped with standard features. Some of these include a multi-angle rear-view camera, which you’ll be able to view through the H-RV’s 7-inch touchscreen. This very same touchscreen will also act as an intuitive control panel for amenities like Bluetooth and a Lane Watch system.

What has been most touted about the H-RV, however, is it’s ample cargo space, and yet, no firm data has been leaked. What we do know is that its cousins from the Honda Urban SUV Concept, the Fit and the C-RV, sport 58.8 cu-ft and 70.9 cu-ft, respectively. If those measurements are any indication of what the H-RV will offer, families on the market next year have yet another worthy consideration.
