New Honda 2022 Honda HR-V for Sale in West Warwick, RI
Mechanical Specs and Trim Levels
The four trim levels of the 2022 HR-V are the LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L. A 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine making 141 horsepower and 127 lb.-ft. of torque powers all of them; its partner under the hood is an efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT). Front-wheel drive (FWD) comes standard, but most Northeasterners will go for the available all-wheel drive (AWD) instead. According to the EPA’s official fuel economy estimates, an HR-V with FWD should return 28 mpg around town and 34 mpg on the highway. For AWD drivetrains, there’s a slight tradeoff to 27 city/31 highway for the LX and 26 city/31 highway for the other trims.
There’s a lot to like about the entry-level LX. While it has many basic features, like manual air conditioning, an auto-up/down driver’s window, two 12-volt power outlets, a USB audio interface, and a passenger-side seatback pocket, the LX also gets Honda’s unique and versatile second-row Magic Seat, which can be configured to accommodate both long (8 ft.) and tall (4 ft.) cargo. It also comes with a 5-inch central display screen, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and a four-speaker sound system.
As its name suggests, the Sport embraces a few attributes that give it a little more attitude, led by gloss-black exterior accents, matte-black wheels with slightly larger tires, roof rails, an exhaust finisher, rear privacy glass, fog lights, sport pedals, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. It also has some extra technology features, including a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HondaLink, Pandora streaming, SMS text messaging, and a USB smartphone/audio interface.
EX and EX-L
The EX places a greater emphasis on spoiling its driver and passengers. While it lacks some of the Sport’s bolder appearance elements (the gloss-black accents, sport pedals, and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob), it gains a moonroof, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock (Honda’s advanced keyless entry and exit system that allows you to unlock and lock the doors without using the key fob), illuminated vanity mirrors, automatic climate control, push-button start, heated front seats, a six-speaker audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and HD radio.
The EX also comes with the Honda Sensing suite of active safety technologies, which consists of forward collision warning with collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control. Honda’s LaneWatch system, which displays the passenger-side roadway on the touchscreen when the driver signals right, and automatic high beams are standard as well. The EX-L adds leather upholstery (for the seats, steering wheel, and shift knob) and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
The base LX comes with LED taillights and daytime running lights, projector-style halogen headlights, body-colored power-adjustable side mirrors, a security system with remote entry, a multi-angle backup camera with fixed guidelines, a roof-mounted spoiler, manual climate control, tilt and telescopic steering column, cruise control, 17-inch alloy wheels, and a 60/40-split second-row Magic Seat. The Sport adds fog lights, roof rails, rear privacy glass, and a leather steering wheel and shift knob. An underbody spoiler, 18-inch alloy wheels, sport pedals, an exhaust finisher, gloss-black power side mirrors, and paddle shifters are exclusive to the Sport, and its backup camera is enhanced with dynamic guidelines.
The EX goes without the leather-enrobed steering wheel and shift knob but adds heated front seats, push-button start, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, proximity key, variable intermittent wipers, a power moonroof, and automatic climate control. Its 17-inch alloy wheels get an attractive machined finish. The EX-L adds upscale touches with leather seating, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.
Advanced Safety Technology
Honda Sensing, a suite of advanced driver-assist technologies, is standard on the 2022 EX and EX-L. It contains adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, a blind-spot monitor, and automatic high-beams.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The HR-V in LX trim has a basic but well-rounded infotainment system with a 5-inch LCD screen, a USB port, four-speaker audio system, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. The Sport trim’s improvements include a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an upgraded sound system, Pandora compatibility, HondaLink telematics for emergency help and diagnostics, SMS text messaging, and dual USB ports. The more-plush EX and EX-L get SiriusXM satellite radio, HD radio, and another pair of speakers.
