2020 Honda HR-V Specs

2019 Honda HR-V Long Mode

Drivers expect subcompact crossover SUVs to offer strong mpg ratings even while delivering engaging performance and spacious interior dimensions – and the 2020 Honda HR-V delivers. As noted by critics from Edmunds: “The 2020 Honda HR-V manages to walk this line quite well and remains one of our favorite small SUVs on the market.” To see exactly why it’s one of their top models in the segment, all you need to do is check out key 2020 Honda HR-V specs.

2020 Honda HR-V Engine Options

The Honda HR-V stays refreshingly responsive and light on its feet even when you’ve filled the staggering 58.8 cubic foot maximum cargo capacity. Go from cargo area to under the hood and you’ll find all models fitted with a 1.8L In-Line 16-Valve SOHC i-VTEC® 4-Cylinder engine that uses Multi-Point Fuel Injection to deliver:

  • Up to 141 hp
  • Up to 127 lb-ft of torque

That kind of output provides agile low-end power perfect for urban driving as well as the confident high-speed cruising drivers need for long-distance highway journeys. Each model is also fitted with Active Noise Cancellation™ (ANC) technology to ensure engine noise never disturbs the peace and quiet of the Honda HR-V interior.

2020 Honda HR-V Drivetrain

The 2020 Honda HR-V brings the same athletic power across all trim levels, but it does let you choose between two drivetrains to customize performance around your lifestyle. Options include:

  • Standard 2WD: Ideal for drivers who don’t expect to encounter adverse conditions or travel off-road.
  • Available AWD: A sophisticated Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ is available across all trims to provide flawless traction whether you’re heading down a trail or driving across snowy roads.

2020 Honda HR-V MPG Ratings

A forward-thinking Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Sport Mode provides each Honda HR-V model with modern performance and impressive efficiency scores. Instead of using a set of fixed gears, it constantly adjusts distribution for perfect and seamless power delivery. If you want more direct control, every model save the entry-level LX comes with Dual-Mode Paddle Shifters.

You’ll make:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway with 2WD models*
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway with AWD LX models or 26 and 31 with the Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring AWD models*

To help coach you into more efficient driving practices over time, each trim level comes with an Eco Assist™ System that provides visual feedback to show how your habits impact fuel consumption.
