January 15th, 2016 by

2016 Honda HR-VBoulder and Denver drivers will be interested to hear that the 2016 Honda HR-V has been named “2016 Green SUV of the Year”* by Green Car Journal. With its noted ability to deliver impressive fuel economy in the subcompact crossover segment without sacrificing engaging driving dynamics and a roomy interior, the HR-V is an exceptional vehicle.

The “2016 Green SUV of the Year”

Green Car Journal has examined the relationship between automobiles and the environment since its launch in 1992, and chooses a “Green SUV of the Year” to honor the one that has made the biggest difference. This year, it was the HR-V’s turn.

In the words of Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and “With its active styling, smart features, and fuel economy leadership, the 2016 Honda HR-V gives car buyers an entirely new option in the small SUV category.”

HR-V Efficiency

The naming of the HR-V as “2016 Green SUV of the Year”* plainly owes a lot to its outstanding powertrain. Each model comes fitted with a 1.8L four-cylinder, with a choice of either six-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT).

Boulder and Denver drivers will have up to 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque to play with when they’re behind the wheel, and they’ll make up to a phenomenal 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway** with a manual transmission and 2WD or an even stronger 28 mpg city and 35 mpg highway** with CVT and 2WD.

Blue Skies for our Children

The HR-V is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Honda’s dedication to environmentally-friendly practices. As part of the “Blue Skies for our Children” campaign, they’re making efforts to advance efficiency and lower emission across the board.

Upcoming models will feature powertrains as advanced as the HR-V’s, and drivers should expect cutting-edge electromotive technologies to power many vehicles in Honda’s future.
