Ever since its initial debut in 2016, the Honda HR-V has excelled amongst the subcompact crossover competition with nimble size and handling and one of the roomiest cabins in its class. Now, the HR-V is even better, receiving its first generational redesign for the 2023 model year. It's an excellent choice for drivers from Goshen to Granger who want more versatility for their daily drives without sacrificing city-friendly maneuverability. Here's a quick overview of the second-gen HR-V's notable improvements.

More Power

The 2023 HR-V equips a new 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, sending 158 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels through a responsive continuously variable transmission. These new performance ratings represent increases of 17 hp and 11 lb-ft over the first-generation model. Of course, if you're looking for enhanced all-season confidence and inclement-weather control, Real Time AWD™ is available across the lineup.

More Standard Features

The new-gen HR-V returns with several desirable amenities as standard equipment, including a 7-inch digital Driver Information Interface in the gauge cluster and a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a multi-view rearview camera. The 2023 HR-V also moves Honda Sensing® driver-assist technologies to the base trim level, including:

  • Forward Collision Warning and Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and Traffic Jam Assist
  • Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Road Departure Mitigation System
  • Rear Seat Reminder
  • Auto High-Beam Headlights
  • Traffic Sign Recognition System

Bolder Style

In addition to better performance and more features, the 2023 Honda HR-V also enhances its curb appeal. Larger and more assertive than the previous generation, it boasts a sporty and rugged exterior aesthetic with a more broad-shouldered stance, a long hood, dynamic headlight clusters, and a more prominent grille.
