2022 Review: Honda HR-V AWD

The Honda HR-V subcompact crossover takes much of what’s good about Honda’s slightly larger CR-V model and shrinks it to better fit individuals and smaller families on a budget.

Now in its second-generation, the HR-V is built on the same underpinnings as the Civic, making it a full 10 inches longer than the original version. Power comes from a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder that puts its 158 hp to the pavement via a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. As you might expect, fuel economy is quite good; performance, well, not so much.

[This summary doesn’t follow from the review when you just said performance is not good.]With its likeable driving demeanor [1] [how is it likeable if it’s not good?]and comfortable, high-quality interior with room for four, however, the practical HR-V fits the affordable urban runabout niche perfectly.
