2016 Honda HR-V Fuel Economy Ratings Revealed
Back in November of last year when Honda debuted the 2016 HR-V at the LA Auto Show, the Japanese automaker claimed that the all-new crossover SUV would boast “class-leading fuel economy ratings.” Today, the company made good on its promise, as official 2016 Honda HR-V fuel economy ratings released by the EPA confirmed that the small crossover’s mileage is the best in its class.
The 2016 HR-V with front-wheel drive and an optional continuously variable transmission yields 28 mpg in the city, 35 mpg on the highway, and 31 mpg combined. Those numbers make it the most fuel efficient SUV available (not counting hybrids or other unconventionally powered vehicles).
Those who opt for the manual six-speed transmission will see an only-to-be-expected decrease in fuel economy, as that version rates 25 mpg in the city, 34 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined. Additionally, the all-wheel-drive 2016 Honda HR-V has a 27 mpg/ 32 mpg/ 29 mpg rating.
