Honda Shows Off 2018 HR-V Updates

2018 HR-V Updates
The 2018 HR-V updates include the availability of a new paint color, and new dark-colored wheel designs available on the EX and EX-L trims.

For a few years now, the Honda HR-V has been heating up the compact crossover segment. This pint-sized SUV packs a big punch with features like its second-row Magic Seat®, its fuel-efficient engine, and great styling.

For the next model year, it gets a few updates. The 2018 HR-V updates include the availability of a new paint color, Aegean Blue Metallic, which is makes you dream of far-off places, and new dark-colored wheel designs available on the EX and EX-L trims. With these visual updates, you can make the HR-V fit your bold style even more.

Driving the HR-V is a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 141 horsepower. It comes standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is an option. When equipped with the available CVT, the HR-V delivers an EPA-estimated 28 mpg in the city, 34 mpg on the highway, and 31 mpg combined.*

Inside the cabin is where the HR-V is most impressive. The unbeatable versatility of its Magic Seat® really sets it apart from the competition. You can flip up the rear seat bottom cushions to haul tall items, or fold them down, along with the front passenger seats, for longer items.

Test drive the 2018 Honda HR-V available now at Brighton Honda.
