Frequently asked questions

What is the Honda HR-V?

A Honda HR-V is a small crossover SUV. The description of an SUV as small or medium is prescribed by the automotive industry, but for consumers this can be a bit confusing. For example Honda offer both small and medium SUVs in their range with the HR-V classified as a small SUV and the CR-V as a medium one.

However the average consumer would not describe the SUV as a small car, rather they would understand it as a crossover SUV. The term that has been coined to describe those vehicles that are a blend of hatchback and SUV. It has the compact footprint of a biggish hatchback but like an SUV, gives the driver more visibility, being seated higher up.

What are HR-V Magic Seats?

The Magic Seat system developed initially for the Jazz, has been used to very good effect in the HR-V. A criticism levelled at many small or crossover SUV’s is the lack of cargo space, passenger legroom or space overall. However the HR-V has class-leading space because Honda has managed to adapt the magic seat platform for use in this vehicle. Once you have experienced Honda’s innovative rear seating, it is impossible to go back to seats that only fold one way. The rear seats don't merely fold down, they can flip up as well, resulting in 18 possible configurations for transporting almost anything from surfboards to small trees.

Tall Mode is the first of the really astounding innovations. The back seats cleverly flip up to give you full advantage of the height of the car from the floor to the ceiling. That’s over 1.2m of height and a whole lot of options.

Utility Mode is the simplest configuration - where the back seats fold down like a regular hatch. But Honda’s engineers solved a little problem here as well – the seats fold completely flat, so you can slide in a chest of drawers without it snagging on the seats.

Long Mode is a surfer’s dream. The passenger seat folds down to fit in objects up to 2.4m in length. An incredible innovation, creating even more freedom.

Refresh Mode gives the HR-V an even more spacious layout. After removing the head rests and moving the front seats forward, the back seat can be tilted down to form a bed like layout offering a comfy position to relax and refresh.

These are just the obvious combinations. Need to transport two bikes and a baby seat? Easy. How about two sets of golf clubs, three pieces of luggage and three passengers? No Problem. 

Can the Honda HR-V tow?

The HR-V can tow a small trailer or boat (up to 800kg braking weight). However one needs to be aware of a few limits. The unbraked limit (weight of trailer plus load is 500kg max) and the braked towing capacity is between 500 and 800kg. The unbraked limit is when the trailer being towed does not have its own braking system and has to make use of the car's brakes. Braked is when the trailer being towed has its own braking system. 

Does the HR-V have Apple CarPlay ?

Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM are available on the HR-V AWD model.

Does Honda HR-V have AWD?

Yes there is an AWD model in the HR-V range.

How many doors does the Honda HR-V have?

All HR-V models have 5 doors across the range (4 doors + boot opening).

What does HR-V stand for?

HR-V officially stands for High-Rider Revolutionary Vehicle. There are some who would also call it Hip and Smart, Runabout Vehicle.

When did the Honda HR-V come out?

The first HR-V was launched in Japan in 1996, as a response to the demand for vehicles with the benefits of SUVs (increased cargo room and higher visibility), but with the manoeuverability, performance and fuel economy of a smaller car. Since then there have been a number of new model iterations.

Which Honda HR-V has leather seats?

These HR-V models come with leather seats fitted as standard: HR-V RS and HR-V Sport NT.
