Hi! Honda Laura here with a brand-new review of the revamped 2019 Honda HR-V Sport!
I can’t tell you guys how excited I am for this revamp. I really liked the HR-V before, but the redesigned front end and and new features make me wonder if it’s time to trade in my Civic hatchback and get my hands on this steering wheel instead.
So, what’s new?
Besides adding 2 new trims, bringing the total trim options to 5 (including the sport trim we’re featuring in today), the 2019 Honda HR-V gives us a re-sculpted front end, LED day-time running lights, projector and fog lights, and a mean-looking blacked out chrome grill. It also features EXCLUSIVE 18” alloy wheels which lend nicely to that overall beefed up look for 2019. Roof rails, side skirts, and rear and under-mount spoilers complete the exterior look. The backup camera is standard, of course.
Under the hood you’ll find a 4 cylinder, 1.8L engine that gives you 141 horse power. The CVT transmission has a sports mode and paddle shift option. With this AWD model, you’ll get 26 city/31 highway – for a combined 28/mpg.
The interior is perfect. It’s cute, cozy, and inviting. Bluetooth is standard and the new display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will help you stick to the new Rhode Island laws regarding use of handheld devices while driving. The new cup-holder features adjustable cup sizing for convenience- it’s the little things!
You can even customize the colors on the gauge cluster! Say what??
The back seats deserve an extra special shout out. The magic seats allow for A LOT more cargo space in the main cabin, and they are easy and effortless to use. And with just a quick fold down and you can go from 23.2 cubic feet to 57.6 in the tailgate!! How crazy cool is that?!?
At just $23,260 MSRP, the newly revamped 2019 Honda HR-V is a great vehicle and a great value! Check it out for yourself!
If I can get over that bug flying into my eye, I just might consider making a trade in of my own.
