Honda announced pricing and fuel economy figures for the 2016 Honda HR-V. The front-wheel-drive version of Honda’s new smallest crossover will start at $19,115 before destination charges ($880) for the model with the 6-speed manual transmission.
This model will get 25 MPG in the city, 34 MPG on the highway, and 28 MPG combined. If you are looking for maximum fuel economy, then the CVT equipped model is the choice. It registers 28 MPG in the city, 35 MPG on the highway, and 31 MPG combined. The AWD model with the CVT will get 29 MPG combined.
The all-wheel-drive HR-V will start at $19,915. The EX-L model with navigation and AWD will ring the register at $25,840.
All HR-V models will be powered by the 1.8L four-cylinder engine that makes 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque @ 4,300 rpm. Maximum horsepower is generated at 6,500 rpm.
The FWD HR-V provides 100.1 cu-ft of total interior volume and 24.3 cu-ft of cargo space behind the rear seats. The AWD model loses 1.1 cu-ft of cargo room, so you are giving up a little space to accommodate for the all-wheel-drive capability.
