What’s the difference between the 2016 and 2017 HR-V?

2016 and 2017 HR-V

It is nearly time for the release of the 2017 HR-V! When the 2016 HR-V blew into the scene last year, it was a welcome addition to the Honda lineup. The subcompact is almost a blend of the popular Honda Fit and Honda CR-V models, and was well received by critics. On the eve of the release of the 2017 model, many people are wondering how the HR-V has changed from the previous year.


2016 and 2017 HR-V

The 2016 and 2017 HR-V models are strikingly similar. Since it is only the second year in the HR-V’s existence, it stuck to the 2016 model’s winning formula for style, convenience, and technology. Both the 2016 and 2017 HR-V models are available in five trim levels: the LX 2WD, LX, EX 2WD, EX, and EX-L Navi. They also have the same paint options; White Orchid Pearl, Crystal Black Pearl, Modern Steel Metallic, Deep Ocean Pearl, Mulberry Metallic, and Milano Red. The 2016 HR-V also has Misty Green Pearl as a paint option. Both years have a 1.8L, 16-valve, SOHC, i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine which is available with a 6-speed manual or Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). They each feature 17 inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and body coloured front door handles, heated power side mirrors, and roofline spoiler. Standard features for both years include a multi-angled rearview camera, heated front seats, a Display Audio System with HondaLink, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, Eco Assist, and folding Magic Seats. They also have a similar list of exclusive tech features, such as the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, a power moonroof, proximity key entry, pushbutton start, and LaneWatch blindspot display. If you are a fan of the 2016 HR-V, then the 2017 model is sure to please!
