5 reasons to buy the 2022 Honda HR-V

1. Four great trims

Picking a subcompact SUV could be easier than you think. Since each 2022 Honda HR-V trim is distinct, picking the right one for you will be obvious from the get-go. Want something simple that keeps you and your crew connected on the road? The base LX trim has hands-free Bluetooth® functionality, an infotainment touchscreen, and a USB port. The Sport trim has an edgier look and more connectivity options, while the EX and EX-L trims are both equipped with a full suite of driver aids as standard, alongside more luxurious passenger comforts.

2. Smart seating

For multigenerational families and groups who like to be active on weekends, the 2022 Honda HR-V's Magic Seat® functionality offers versatile passenger and cargo options. Flip the second row forward and you've got 55.9 cu-ft of horizontal storage space. The seat bases can also fold upward to reveal the vertical space you need for dog crates, kids' bikes, and other tall pieces of equipment. With the second row's 60/40-split capability, you can make it a mixed-use space for both cargo and passengers.

3. Road trip ready

The 2022 Honda HR-V has serious road trip chops. Five supremely comfortable seats with 41.2 inches of legroom up front and 39.3 inches in the rear means everyone can get comfortable for the long haul. Tell loved ones that their travel essentials are welcome too—the HR-V has space for it all. Devices and snacks can be stored in the front and rear door bins or the center console storage compartment, while books and magazines fit neatly in the seatback pockets. Front and rear drink holders are also standard.

4. Go farther on a tank of gas

The 2022 Honda HR-V's sole powertrain is ideally suited to everyday driving, thanks to a finely tuned suspension and the ability to take you farther between fill-ups. Powered by a 141-hp 1.8L four-cylinder engine with an automatic transmission and standard FWD, the 2022 HR-V achieves an EPA-estimated 30 mpg combined—good for daily commuting, regular school runs, and all the errands that keep a household running.

Need AWD capability? Every 2022 HR-V offers it as an option, with an EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined.

5. Plenty of assistance features

The 2022 Honda HR-V has the standard equipment that supports driver awareness and passenger comfort on the journeys that matter, from family vacations to indulgent days at the mall or golf course with friends. Your youngest companions can be securely seated in the rear row, as the HR-V has two full sets of LATCH fixtures in the outboard seats and an upper tether point for the middle position. The standard multi-angle rearview camera has guidelines at all trim levels, ensuring your parking spot record remains flawless at every angle of entry and departure.
