It’s the second go-round for the Honda HR-V, which comes back all new for the 2023 model year. This second generation brings truly good things to the CR-V’s smaller counterpart, including a bit more size and power now that it’s based on the Civic (it was previously built on the discontinued Fit’s platform). It displays an on-trend appearance dominated by an attractive honeycomb grille, along with narrow LED headlights, a more tapered roofline, a rear spoiler, and a wider and longer body. Honda has also given the HR-V an independent rear suspension, which helps to improve its ride quality, and the Honda Sensing driver-assist technology suite now comes standard on all trims.

The interior has been redone with the honeycomb pattern repeating on the clean and modern dash. Also gone is the 5-inch static infotainment screen previously seen on the HR-V’s base trim: the LX now gets a 7-inch touchscreen (a 9-inch touchscreen comes on the most expensive version).

Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy

Honda has dropped the EX trim, leaving three for the 2023 HR-V: LX, Sport, and EX-L. Now that it gets the same 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as the Civic, its horsepower rises to 158 (that’s 17 hp more than the outgoing HR-V). The continuously variable transmission (CVT) and standard front-wheel drivetrain stay the same, and all-wheel drive remains an option. The EPA has estimated fuel economy for the FWD version at 26 mpg city/32 mpg highway, while the AWD version dips to 25 city/30 highway.

Standard Features

A good list of standard equipment comes on the base LX, including keyless entry, automatic on/off headlights (LED), push-button ignition, automatic climate control, a 7-inch driver information display, a USB interface (in the front console), two USB charge ports (in the center console), electrostatic-touch second-row reading lights, and a 12-volt power outlet in the cargo area. The Magic Seat has been dropped in favor of a 60/40-split folding rear seatback, but the upshot is that the seats are now more comfortable. The Sport adds quite a bit: heated front seats, heated exterior mirrors with turn-signal indicators, a trim-specific grille, chrome exhaust ends, rear privacy glass, Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock, and illuminated vanity mirrors. Its steering wheel and shifter knob are wrapped in leather, and the front windows have auto-up/down. The EX-L sits at the top of the range with leather seats, wireless phone charging, a power moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and ambient interior lighting. It also reverts to the regular grille and exhaust pipes seen on the LX.

Active Driver Aids

As we mentioned above, Honda Sensing is now standard, equipping every HR-V with forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, traffic jam assist, and traffic sign recognition. Automatic high beams and a rear-seat reminder are both standard as well. The Sport and EX-L add blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, but only the EX-L gets low-speed braking control and front and rear parking sensors.

Infotainment and Communication

This portion of the redesign is good for buyers of the LX, where a 7-inch touchscreen replaces the first generation’s 5-inch display. The system also has smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth for hands-free phone and audio streaming, SMS text messaging, and a sound system with four speakers. The Sport gets the same stuff but six speakers, while the EX-L is given a 9-inch touchscreen, wireless smartphone integration, SiriusXM satellite radio, HD radio, and eight speakers.
