It might be the base model, but the LX is proof that the 2017 Honda HR-V trim levels start off a step ahead of the average crossover. An energetic and efficient 4-cylinder lets the HR-V keep pace and fit into a tight budget, available all-wheel drive offers added versatility, and tech features ensure you stay connected while out on the road.
Powertrain: The 1.8L 4-cylinder powering the HR-V delivers 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque and is paired to either a 6-speed manual transmission or a continuously variable transmission (CVT). 2017 HR-V LX 2WD CVT models are rated at an EPA-estimated 34 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg in the city.*
Real-Time All-Wheel Drive: The HR-V’s available all-wheel drive system is engineered to sense when there is a loss of traction and shift power to the rear wheels as needed. The result is a vehicle that offers the control of all-wheel drive without a noticeable impact on fuel economy.
Technology: Stay connected to your phone with Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, manage your media with an in-dash LCD display, and back up with confidence thanks to the standard multi-angle rearview camera.
Honda-Exclusives: Each HR-V has a Honda Magic Seat as a standard feature, making the cargo area even more versatile with Long, Tall, and Utility modes. Switch between moving people and moving cargo in minutes.
West Michigan drivers looking for an affordable new crossover that has advanced connectivity features and the capabilities to handle tough winters with all-wheel drive should consider the 2017 HR-V LX, with two-wheel drive models priced at $19,365 (MSRP).**
The West Michigan driver in the market for an adventurous, high-tech, spacious crossover should consider the mid-range 2017 Honda HR-V trim level, the EX. Drivetrain and transmission options remain from the LX; the key difference is among the features:
Technology: The 7-inch Display Audio touchscreen makes it easy to manage media, control your HondaLink telematics settings, send and receive SMS texts, switch preferences on Pandora Internet Radio, and more.
Comfort and Convenience: The HR-V EX has a one-touch power moonroof for those summer days, heated front seating for the Michigan winters, and Smart Entry with push-button start for everyday convenience.
Safety: In addition to the multi-angle rearview camera (now with dynamic guidelines), the EX trim adds on the Honda LaneWatch blind-spot camera, mounted on the passenger-side mirror and showing a much wider view of what could be in your blind spot before changing lanes.
Priced at only $21,415 (MSRP) for 2WD 6MT models,** the 2017 HR-V EX straddles the utility of the LX and the luxury of the EX-L Navi—great for a driver between budget levels who may want more high-tech and less luxury.
As the top of the 2017 Honda HR-V trim levels, the EX-L Navi represents all that the crossover is capable of, including the CVT as standard and coming available with front- or all-wheel drive. The following features upgrade the EX trim:
Interior: A leather-trimmed interior, complete with leather upholstery, leather steering wheel wrapping, and leather shift knob wrapping take the HR-V’s class up a notch.
Exterior: The EX-L Navi includes roof rails as standard for easy mounting of skis, kayaks, snowboards, and more, especially with the HR-V’s many available accessories.
Technology: SiriusXM and HD radio are standard on the EX-L Navi, as is a satellite-linked navigation system that responds to touchscreen input or voice commands. With built-in points of interest and traffic rerouting, the HR-V can send you where you need to go and suggest new places you might want to go, all on your schedule.
It has the amenities of a luxury crossover, yet the 2017 Honda HR-V EX-L Navi is priced at only $24,840 (MSRP).** Drivers looking for elegance and technology without paying the luxury-grade price tag will love what this trim has to offer.
