The 2023 Honda HR-V has been completely redesigned with plenty of new specs and features, but is it the right car for you?

How is the 2023 HR-V different?

Compared to past models, the HR-V has been completely redesigned, from the engine to the rear fascia. It has been redesigned to be larger, to the point where some may say it competes with Honda’s own CR-V. It’s also slimmer with a more curved, CR-V-like feel to it. The front end gives a clean aspect with LED headlights on every trim, along with a rear roofline spoiler. From the back, a wide stance conveys a sense of solidity, and the elegantly designed combination lamps are illuminated with LED bulbs.

There’s even a new pair of electrostatic reading lights for the back row, completely new and unseen on any other Honda thus far. Check out the Upper Valley Honda guide to the 2023 Honda HR-V and see the full specs and key details of the trims, options, and more. Our team is ready to help you narrow down the right vehicle for you, helping you choose between an all-wheel-drive or front-wheel-drive SUV, what infotainment features would be valuable to you, and anything else you may require.

Does the 2023 HR-V have useful standard features?

Some people aren’t interested in the various sporty or luxurious options they can get. They just want the basic, standard model to save money and reliably drive for the next few years or so.

This Honda AWD technology can quickly and easily adjust all kinds of traction and performance details, helping to ensure that you maintain optimal traction during rain, sleet, or snow.

The HR-V also offers convenient accessories to protect your car from dirt, scuffs, spills, and more. From all-season floor mats, door sill protection film, cargo covers, and cargo trays to seat-back protectors, you’ll have peace of mind that your HR-V’s interior is protected against all the perils of a raucous family or outdoorsy lifestyle.

If you’re more concerned about technology, connectivity, and convenience, you’re still in good hands with the HR-V. All grades include a multi-angle rearview camera and steering-wheel-mounted controls, a USB smartphone/audio interface, a Bluetooth hands-free link, and Bluetooth streaming audio.

Is the HR-V a good car for its price?

In AWD, the city rating drops to 25 mpg,; you’ll highway rating rises to 30 mpg. Put simply, you’ll save fuel compared to most competing vehicles, in turn saving you money.
