You can see all about the HR-V on Honda website.... only choice of engine across all trims is 158 HP 2.0 NA . (no Turbo 1.5)
but we got "SNOW MODE" !!!The loss of the Magic Seat and some efficiency is disappointing - especially with gasoline exceeding $5/gallon. I also hate to see the elimination of the radar unit for Honda Sensing which allowed the system to detect other vehicles in low-to-no visibility conditions (e.g. dense fog).
I like the Civic-based interior, dual-zone climate control, remote start, independent rear suspension, and Traffic Jam Assist (basically, LKAS continues working at low speeds instead of shutting off below 45 MPH).
The Hill Descent Control seems like a silly gimmick in an HR-V.
oohhh. I like that idea- the tiny Acura could be sweet fun ride..Nordic forest color is amazing. Considering all the short comings of the previous gen. (And it still sold really well for Honda).
This will sell like hotcakes still regardless of no 1.5t. It is almost guaranteed Acura will have a small CUV with the 1.5t.
Memorial weekend went looking for a new 22 civic...It wasn’t too long ago that $30k got you 200+hp. And some luxury like leather. You have civics pushing $30k easily….the market is just not what it used to be. I understand inflation and material cost increases. But $30k is still a lot of money.
You can use the XM app through Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Their streaming service is not only cheaper, but it also has more channels and you can listen anywhere you can log in - not just your car.If I'm reading it right, the only way to get XM in the car is to get the EX-L.
No thanks... not enough upgrade to convince me to get rid of my 2016 with only 65K miles on it... especially at over $30K for minor upgrades.
All that and a front end that is plain, uninspiring and FUGLY! They did a nice job on the rear end but who in the heck wants to drive in reverse all the time. Time may prove me wrong, but IMHO Honda just pulled off a huge swing and a miss. Likewise, I purchased my HRV because it didn't have the latest safety crap that adds to the cost when you replace a windshield and/or serves as one more thing to break in the future. Keeping the HRV simple with the Magic Seat but without blind spot monitoring, autonomous breaking, adaptive cruise control and a leaky sunroof...all selling points for me since I do all my own maintenance and NEVER want to see the inside of a Honda repair shop.
