    New color and updated wheel design enhance sporty personality


    HR-V combines coupe-like styling with SUV functionality and great efficiency 





With its stylish coupe-like design and SUV functionality, the versatile and segment-leading1 2018 Honda HR-V begins arriving at Honda dealerships August 14 carrying a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP2) starting at $19,570.




 The HR-V became America's retail best-selling subcompact SUV1 in April 2017 and has posted seven consecutive months of year-over-year sales gains. Up 27.9 percent for the first half of 2017, HR-V sales to individual retail buyers outpace all other subcompact SUVs.



For 2018, the Honda HR-V offers a vibrant new color, Aegean Blue Metallic, available on select trims. HR-V also features a refreshed wheel design with black-painted inserts – available on EX and higher trims – to enhance HR-V's sporty personality.





The 2018 Honda HR-V will continue to deliver one of the most versatile interiors in the segment thanks to Honda's 2nd-row Magic Seat® that offers four different modes for multiple seating and cargo-hauling configurations. With 100.1 cu.-ft. of passenger space and 58.8 cu.-ft. of cargo volume (LX FWD) with the 2nd-row seats folded down, the HR-V has space to rival some competitors' midsize SUV offerings.



Not only is the 2018 Honda HR-V stylish and functional, it's also efficient, with EPA3 fuel economy ratings of 28/34/31 mpg (city/highway/combined) for CVT-equipped two-wheel drive models and 27/31/29 mpg for models with all-wheel drive, while 6-speed manual 2WD models received a 25/33/28 mpg rating.



The 2018 HR-V is also fun to drive, with lively yet secure handling and a standard 6-speed manual transmission (2WD models). HR-V is powered by a responsive 1.8-liter SOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with i-VTEC® valvetrain, with peak output of 141 horsepower (SAE net) at 6,500 rpm and 127 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net) 4,300 rpm.



The HR-V is available with Honda's Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ for outstanding all-weather handling and control. A continuously-variable transmission (CVT) is available on all models, and a 6-speed manual transmission is available on the LX and EX trims with 2WD.





The 2018 Honda HR-V offers standard safety and driver-assistive features including the anti-lock brakes (ABS) with Brake Assist and Hill Start Assist, Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) electronic stability control system, a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and more.



The Honda HR-V has set new monthly sales records in every month of 2017, with its best month of all-time coming in July of this year5. The 2017 HR-V was named the 2017 Best Subcompact SUV for Families and the 2017 Best Car for the Money of the Best Subcompact SUV category by U.S. News & World Report along with additional prestigious accolades.
