Let's assume for a moment that Honda leverages the US trim designations that we have come to expect. Which trim level are you interested in and why? For simplicity let's assume that the available levels are:

LX - manual
LX - CVT
EX - CVT
EX - CVT with AWD
EX-L - CVT
EX-L - CVT with AWD

Of course, Nav might be an option as well, but let's leave that one off the table for now, as could be a Touring model as evidenced by the 2015 CRV.

For me it would be an EX-L with AWD. I live in Colorado, so AWD is what I really want in my next vehicle. And I loved my 2004 Accord with leather, so that's a repeat for me.

I would probably choose a EX with CVT & AWD. I want the Lane Watch feature that is not likely to be on the LX model

EX-L AWD, here in Canada for the new fit trim level leather and Navi come together, very likely the same will apply to HR-V so my option become EX-L Navi AWD.

Will HR-V have the tour trim level as the refreshed CRV for these safety add-ons? Any idea?

One interesting thing, will HR-V provide the attractive two tone interior to some if not all trims?
In Japan, it only exist with one hybrid trim,if i'm right, that is the most popular trim.
Meanwhile, in China, where hybrid trim doesn't available (same as us!) They have this two tone interior on auto show.

Also, if they offer a turbo, who is going to want a cvt? Not me. I want a 6 speed with all the whistles, like lane watch, backup camera, variable wipers, heated mirrors, etc...

or am I asking to much? : )

Honda has really switched to the CVTs in all newer models. The CRV just switched to it, the Accord has it, the Civic.... The HRV is unlikely to buck the trend. The exceptions seems to be on the Acura lineup where the RDX for example has a six speed tranny.

I do agree I'd prefer a six, seven, or eight speed modern transmission to a CVT. That is the one thing I dislike about what I've heard about the HRV and its variants.

Definitely EX AWD, Pacific Northwest outdoor enthusiast here. Saw the EX-L trim in the new Fit and really liked it. Might consider Navi also would have to see it in action, currently just use the Google Maps app in my phone when I need it.

I meant a manual tranny on this post, not a 6 speed auto.

EX-L - CVT with AWD and hopefully android auto support otherwise I'll either wait until it's supported or look elsewhere if I can't wait. My 07 civic LX is getting long in the tooth =)

manual trans only for me..

I only buy manual transmissions, if the HR-V keeps more upscale goodies to automatic only I will be greatly disappointed, but if so, I'm gone.

All I've driven is manual transmission Hondas. If the AWD HRV is auto only, oh well I guess it's time to join the auto transmission gang...

Probably EX, but if the price difference isn't too steep, I'll seriously look at EX-L for navigation. I haven't decided if I want AWD or if I'll stick with 2 wheel drive and snow tires.
