2020 Honda HR-V Arrives at $20,820
The 2020 Honda HR-V began arriving in Honda showrooms around the country on Monday with a starting price of $20,820, excluding a destination and handling charge of $1,095. This represents just a $200 increase over the 2019 model.
The new HR-V, one of many subcompact crossovers on the current car market, seats five and is offered at five trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, EX-L, and Touring. All trims come with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive (the latter is an extra $1,500), except for the top-of-the-line Touring, which starts at $28,890 and comes equipped with AWD no matter what.
Too Pricey? Consider leasing an HR-V instead
The 2020 HR-V is largely unchanged compared to the 2019 model, which had already introduced several styling upgrades and introduced the Sport and Touring trims. The former should continue to be one of the most popular options for customers, as it arguably delivers the best bang for the buck with standard features such as 18-inch wheels, black accents, and a 7-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
At the top of the range, the HR-V Touring offers fog lights, dark chrome trim, full LED headlights, exclusive 17-inch machined alloy wheels and an upgraded interior that includes double-stitched leather seats.
Under the hood, the 2020 Honda HR-V continues to be powered by a 1.8-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder engine rated at 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a continuously variable transmission, so don’t expect to be able to punch out of corners with any sort of real grunt, but it’ll get the job done and get you some decent fuel economy.
