Honda’s subcompact SUV is back for the 2021 model year with the same, unique blend of fuel efficiency and versatile interior configurations. HR-V takes its spot between CR-V and Pilot in the Honda SUV lineup and its size can be a bit deceiving. Thanks to Honda’s 60/40 split 2nd-row Magic Seat® this subcompact SUV can accommodate both long and tall cargo, but what Iowa car shoppers really want to know is: Will the 2021 Honda HR-V be redesigned? Join Vern Eide Honda Sioux City as we review the 2021 HR-V.
Although the Honda HR-V will not be redesigned for 2021, the HR-V Sport trim receives a couple of exciting upgrades that enhance its already aggressive style. The 2021 Honda HR-V Sport sits on redesigned 18-inch alloy wheels and adds tinted privacy glass, a change that truly compliments gloss-black elements like the honeycomb grille, underbody spoilers, and the rear bumper. The 2021 HR-V Sport model comes with the following features:
Iowa car shoppers will get to choose from four different HR-V trim levels and seven distinctive paint colors for the 2021 model year. The 2021 Honda HR-V colors include Aegean Blue Metallic, Crystal Black Pearl, Lunar Silver Metallic, Milano Red, Modern Steel Metallic, Midnight Amethyst Metallic, and Platinum White Pearl.
What are automotive authorities like Autotrader, Edmunds, and Kelley Blue Book saying about the 2021 Honda HR-V?
The 2021 Honda HR-V is one of the best bets for those seeking to squeeze the most possible interior space out of a small SUV. Though Honda’s least-expensive crossover has faced newer rivals like the Hyundai Kona, Mazda CX-30 and the reborn Chevrolet Trailblazer, they can’t match the HR-V‘s innovative interior flexibility and cargo space. The secret to this packaging wizardry is the appropriately named “Magic Seat,” borrowed from the Honda Fit, which flips its rear seat bottom-up or folds completely flat into the floor. The result is outsized space and unmatched versatility. 1
A reasonable starting price and practical storage make the HR-V the perfect starting point for buyers looking to maximize bang for their buck. Vehicles in this price range naturally have to compromise in some areas, but the HR-V makes fewer concessions than most. Unlike some rivals, the ride and seats are quite pleasant. Once you consider the notable passenger comfort, roomy back row, and class-leading amount of cargo space, you realize the HR-V is one of the only subcompact crossovers well suited to road trips. 2
The 2021 HR-V is Honda’s smallest crossover SUV, slotting below the CR-V. The Honda HR-V is a great choice among subcompact SUVs, boasting a highly versatile and roomier-than-expected interior, good driving manners, an efficient engine, and the high reliability and resale values for which Honda is known. 3
The release date for the 2021 Honda HR-V was set for early October 2020 and sure enough, the subcompact SUV with not-so-compact abilities arrived on time at Vern Eide Honda Sioux City.
