This doesn't sound too specific, does it?


"Although Honda hasn't released final sales price figures, we estimate MSRP somewhere in the neighborhood of $19,150 to $24,900, HR-V crossover will take first time and returning Honda buyers to the next level in affordable, fuel efficient performance and utility without breaching the household budget; we like that!



As to exact date of release, price, specifications and ride impressions, there coming from American Honda Motors sometime in April 2015. According to our source at American Honda Motors, the short wait will be well worth the angst, as Honda insures the quality, technical superiority and safety of their next “happy customer,” success story.

I, as many of you, we're probably expecting a slightly lower price point. With the Jeep Renegade starting at just over $18k I thought for sure the Honda would start in the $17k - 24k range. I'm guessing for an awd model you're looking at $22k. That's the whole reason I've waited for this car. Definitely going to check other options like a used x3 that I can get for thousands cheaper or maybe even the Renegade. This is not the aggressive pricing Honda I once knew. When they announced that they were going to "aggressively price" the Type-R, I guess they mean it will be $42k not 45k.

Agreed. I hope Torque is high because a manual LX should not be $19+ K.

well I am liking that 19150 better than the 21000-22000 pricing I have been seeing guessed at. The latter means I am probably on to something else.

The Renegade may have a lower starting price, but it will top out at a higher price than the HRV will. I think that the Jeep is going to get people with its options and trim levels.

Prices definitely look steep! 24k for a HRV does seem pricey. However, if your looking into the Renegade the price can increase above 30k depending on what upgrades and model you choose. Personally, if I'm going to pay over 24k I would go for the Renegade Diesel!

The price range is about what I would expect. It it $5750, which is only $50 more thaan the price range of the CR-V (with same transmission and drive type).

I am happy with that range.


Here in Canada - I was expecting the $19999 magic number - capping at $30.


Price is a factor for sure....BUT so is low deprecation....less surprise trips to the dealership...


And what is often difficult to explain, is the fun factor in the drive.


Once your models are ready for test drives, take a day off work, and go back to back test driving.


You will know which suits your lifestyle better

I'd feel more comfortable paying that price for the HRV than for what the Renegade goes, i just have more hope in japanese brands.

I am happy with the price range provided the options I want are available. Years ago, I kept a car three years or so, but that has changed to ten years for my current vehicle, which is a commitment. This is the first crossover option announced that hints of offering a manual transmission across trim levels. I am willing to pay a bit for that, considering how long I plan to own the vehicle.

I wish other manufacturers would get the hint. Not all of us manual drivers are bottom-feeders, we just prefer involved driving.

Seems like things go in cycles. What usually happens with a new model is that it is offered in many options in the first year. Then sometimes manuals make up such a small percentage of actual sales they are dropped. (Coupe models often get dropped for the same reason).


Maybe the cycle has changed and manuals will be a big seller this time around. The CVT gets better mpg, so it will be interesting to see what the likely frugal buyers in this segment will do. We will know more when we see the sales figures in a year.


Maybe the option should be manuals could come in a more expensive sport level , packaged with other desirable options and special distinctive trim?


Anyway, I am glad Honda took the risk. I really want a manual myself. I wouldn't put off purchasing to the second year for that reason.

I would like an HR-V Si, like the Civic. Complete with 200HP, manual only.

I think that would be an excellent solution to keep the manual option available into the future.


I think the CX-3 really missed the boat not offering a manual. I believe it will be the sportier of the two, but it loses cred with only a CVT.

Exactly! Early on, I was actually thinking the CX-3 would fulfill my need for a more highly-optioned CUV as opposed to the stripped CX-5. The fact that Mazda did not offer it is telling of their direction. My guess is that the CX-5 MT-6 will get chopped at the next major revision.

I believe the CX-3 comes with a six speed automatic transmission here in the states, not a CVT

Mazda is one of the last brands we could have depended on for a manual, too bad they gave up on us with the CX-3! Unless they might have plans for it with the 2nd year model version. It's still early in the process anyways.

If you move to Japan, you can purchase one with a manual! Yeah, would be nice if they offered that transmission here...
