  • Overview

    The Honda HR-V has defiantly stood the test of time, even though it was never meant to please everyone like the rest of the Honda Cars lineup.

    Throughout the decades, it has carried wacky styling details that made it stand out even among other crossovers. But underneath all the spectacle, the HR-V has always been a highly competent sport-utility vehicle that used the best of Honda Cars’ technology.

    History

    From the very beginning, the HR-V has obstinately been a left-field choice.

    The first-generation HR-V, which debuted in 1998, was based on the Honda Logo hatchback and had boxy styling, huge taillights and headlights that made it look perennially happy.

    Combine all these with stand-out colors like Passion Orange and the HR-V really made clear that it was the cooler little brother of the Honda CR-V.

    The second-generation model arrived in the Philippines on June 2015. Now using the underpinnings of the Honda Jazz hatchback and the Honda City sedan, the HR-V grew bigger, but still carried funky touches like hidden rear door handles and swoopy styling.

    The current HR-V was unveiled on April 2022, still using the platform of the contemporary Jazz and City. This generation also marked the debut of a turbocharged powerplant for the HR-V, along with the addition of the Honda SENSING active safety system for all variants.

    Price

    There are currently three variants of the HR-V – the S, the V Turbo and the RS Turbo.

    The Honda HR-V price in the Philippines starts at P1,250,000.00. The lowest price is the Honda HR-V S CVT, ranging all the way up to the Honda HR-V RS Turbo CVT priced at  P1,739,000.

    Variant
     Price
    S CVT P1,250,000 
    V Turbo CVT 
    P1,649,000 
    RS Turbo CVT 
    P1,739,000 

  • Exterior

    Continuing with the tradition of the previous HR-Vs, the current one has styling that stands out from the rest of the Honda Cars lineup.

    Up front, tall and thin LED headlights flank a prominent hexagonal grill. This generation also gets a deep chin spoiler that makes the front end look closer to the ground.

    The side profile is unmistakably HR-V – a high beltline, black plastic trim around the wheel arches and the hidden rear door handles give the crossover a coupe-like profile.

    The rear end is perhaps the HR-V’s best angle. The steeply raked rear windscreen and the LED taillights that stretch across the entire tailgate give a sleek appearance, helped by the pert rear bumper.

    The S and V Turbo models come with 17-inch alloy wheels, while the RS Turbo gets special 18-inch alloy wheels.

    Dimensions

    The HR-V is a compact crossover that is shorter in length than most subcompact sedans, but is considerably wider and taller.

    The added ground clearance is a big plus when dealing with floods or rougher
    terrain.

  • Interior

    The HR-V has a decidedly sportier cabin than its CR-V sibling.

    Honda used plenty of fine leatherette on the center console, with higher variants getting sumptuous leather. However, hard plastics on the top of the dashboard cheapen things a bit.

    Examine the HR-V’s interior more closely and you get neat features like curved side air-conditioning vents, plenty of cubby holes and clear instrumentation.

    Dashboard

    Starting from the Honda HRV dashboard, the appearance looks exclusive because the dashboard design is designed with a minimalist but elegant concept thanks to the symmetrical placement of the instrument panel. On the dashboard there are instrument panels such as MID LED display, Eco Assist, Audio-Video System, Auto AC, and a steering wheel that is designed to be sporty without leaving a cheap impression. In the cabin of the Honda HRV steering wheel, there are features and easy-to-reach operation buttons, such as the One Touch Turning Signal button, Audio Steering Switch, and also the One Push Ignition System.

    Space&practicality

    Moving to the front passenger cabin, the material carried also does not disappoint with factory material details. Especially for the Honda HR-V 1.8L Prestige and also the HR-V 1.8L CVT Special Edition JBL Audio is equipped with a high-quality full leather composition. Meanwhile, all seats, both driver and passenger, are also equipped with seatbelts.

    Baggage

    Finally, the Honda HRV specification in the baggage is also set with a capacity that is quite spacious so that it can. accommodate more luggage.

  • Features

    Safety features

    This is where the HR-V leaps far ahead of its competition.

    All HR-V models come with the Honda SENSING active safety system. This includes features like collision mitigation braking, lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist and automatic high beams.

    The crossover also comes standard with front and side airbags, stability control and ISOFIX child-restraint anchors. The top-spec RS Turbo adds curtain airbags and a LaneWatch Camera that allows drivers to see more on the right lanes than with just the mirrors.

    High-tech features

    The HR-V is loaded with stuff to make your drive that much more relaxing.

    A reversing camera helps you see what’s behind, the hill-descent control helps you down steep slopes without any fuss and the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

    Ride comfort

    This is where the HR-V gets a little strange, but not in a good way.

    The second-generation model combined refined road manners with fairly adept handling. The current HR-V, however, has improperly tuned shock absorbers.

    On most surfaces, it’s fairly smooth. But once you hit a bump, the crossover has a nasty habit of jiggling excessively, much like a ladder-frame SUV like a Mitsubishi Montero Sport.

    Storage space

    The HR-V has plenty of cupholders and cubby holes, along with a glove compartment for all your things.

    And because it’s based on the Jazz, it uses Honda’s very clever Utility-Long-Tall or ULT seats. This means that the rear seat not only folds 60:40, but the seat cushions can be folded up to fit things like large plants.

    Speaking of the cargo area, the HR-V has a wide tailgate opening, a low loading lip and a flat floor so you can haul stuff easily.

  • Powertrain

    You have a choice of two engines when picking your HR-V, both mated to a continuously variable transmission.

    The entry-level S model gets the 1.5-liter, twin-cam, 16-valve inline-4 gasoline engine from the City, City Hatchback and BR-V. This produces 121 PS and 145 Nm of torque.

    Meanwhile, the V Turbo and RS Turbo get, as the names imply, a turbocharged version of the 1.5-liter powerplant straight out of the Honda Civic. This pumps out a healthy 177 PS and 240 Nm of torque.

    Driving characteristics

    Take the Honda HR-V out on the road and it’s a bit of a mixed bag.

    The springs are quite stiff, which means it settles well for a crossover in hard cornering. However, the aforementioned problem with the shock absorbers means that, although the ride is generally fine, the HR-V feels lack composure over bumps.

    Meanwhile, the electric power steering is very light, which is handy in low-speed parking maneuvers. But that lightness persists even at higher speeds, where you can’t really feel where the front tires are pointed.

    The brakes are strong, although the pedal feel is spongy. The turbocharged 1.5-liter engine provides strong power from 2,000 rpm onwards, while the naturally aspirated 1.5 needs to be worked up to 4,500 rpm to really get going.

  • Fuel Consumption

    Based on our tests, the HR-V V Turbo got an average of 7 to 10 km/L in the city and 16-18 km/L on the highway. Meanwhile, the non-turbo HR-V S got around 8 to 10 km/L in the city, but hit 18-21 km/L out on the expressway.

  • Conclusion

    The Honda HR-V sticks true to the formula that has made it so endearing over the last two decades – sensible mechanicals with striking visuals.

    It remains to be a compact crossover with the zing that many modern cars have lost. However, the driving experience of the current model can be improved, hopefully with a midlife refresh.

    And unlike back in 1998, the HR-V has to deal with one of the biggest hurdles in the Philippine car market – Chinese brands.

    In particular, it goes up against the similar-sized and turbocharged Geely Coolray, which undercuts the Honda considerably in price.

    But then again, you get what you pay for with the Honda HR-V: class-leading safety features, a premium driving experience and proven Honda mechanicals.

Honda HR-V has total 5 color options in the Philippines: Modern Steel Metallic, Taffeta White, Lunar Silver Metallic, Passion Red, Phoenix Orange Pearl
