Five-seat SUVs (categorized as subcompact crossover SUVs) are growing in popularity for those seeking a nimble, compact vehicle that still offers an ample amount of storage space.

Considering the Honda HR-V's compact size, the amount of cargo space that it offers is truly impressive. For example, Honda named the second-row seating in the 2018 Honda HR-V SUV the "Magic Seat" thanks to its innovative folding mechanism. When folded down, the second-row seating on the 2018 Honda HR-V folds completely flat, providing 58.8 cubic feet of cargo space. The second-row seating of the Honda HR-V can also be folded up to create a deeper well between the front and back seats if you need to haul taller items. Honda has managed to offer an enormous amount of cargo space in the Honda HR-V that rivals the cargo space of many larger SUVs.
All trims of the 2018 Honda HR-V are powered by a 1.8-liter i-VTEC® four-cylinder engine that puts out 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque. The 2018 1.8L four-cylinder Honda HR-V engine gets an EPA estimated 28 mpg city and 34 mpg highway on the front-wheel drive model.
At one time, the aesthetics of many SUVs left something to be desired. Today, though, that is largely no longer the case – especially for the Honda HR-V. It has plenty of curves and lines that all come together nicely, making for a design that really stands out on the road. Add to this eight different color options to choose from on the 2018 model, and you've got a vehicle that really wins points in the aesthetics department.
If the latest technology features are a priority for you, then the Honda HR-V accessories won't disappoint. The EX-L Navi trim of the 2018 Honda HR-V, for example, comes with an array of features such as a Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ with voice recognition and Honda HD Digital Traffic, Honda LaneWatch™, a seven-inch touchscreen display, a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, and much more.
If you're in the market for a subcompact crossover SUV, the Honda HR-V is an excellent option. Thanks to its fuel economy, excellent cargo space, sleek design, and wide array of technology features, the Honda HR-V is an example of everything a subcompact crossover SUV should be. Overall, CarMax customers have enjoyed the Honda HR-V enough to give it an average rating of 4.7/5 stars!
