The Hondomain authority HR-V is turning 4 years old, which means it"s time for a refresh. For 2019 Honda not only gave sầu its subcompact crossover a face-lift but also added two new trims: Thể Thao và Touring. Following the same naming convention as the refreshed Fit, the 2019 Honda HR-V Sport slots between the LX and EX trims, but there are no mechanical differences. With a unique look inside & outside, a youthful vibe, and better technology, the HR-V Sport is trying khổng lồ get inlớn the minds of more millennials.

But sport is only in its name. As we found out during our First Test, the HR-V Sport still takes an eternity khổng lồ get up khổng lồ speed. Needing 9.6 seconds lớn reach 60 mph, the HR-V Sport AWD is one of the slowest in its segment, which includes the Jeep Renegade và Hyundẻo Kona. As in the 2016-2018 models, the 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine still produces 141 hp và 127 lb-ft of torque, and it"s mated to a CVT tranny. Although Honda offered a manual when the HR-V was first launched, all 2019 models will only be available with a CVT. The numbers at the traông chồng also reflect a sense of lethargy on the road. When you step on the gas, the engine grunts loudly—not in a good way—và it seems lớn work hard as it tries khổng lồ gain speed. When merging on the freeway, it"s best to lớn use the paddle shifters khổng lồ downshift the transmission one or two gears lớn get more torque.


The Sport trim suspension is tuned a little differently from the rest of the lineup, with a stabilizer bar that"s wider in the front and narrower in the rear. Its steering is also a bit more responsive, & its all-season tires are wider than those in the rest of the HR-V lineup. If you"re thinking about getting the Sport, you"ll be pleased with the 18-inch alloy wheels, which are exclusive sầu to this trlặng & provide a better profile look.

I drove the HR-V from L.A. to lớn San Diego and enjoyed most of the ride. Despite being slow, the HR-V is an easy commuter car. The seats are firm and comfortable, but after two & a half hours I was ready for a stretch. When the next generation arrives in about three years, I hope Honda will redesign the center console. The space where the cupholders go is shared with anything else you may put there—phone, key card, etc.—& the center armrest can"t slide forward if you have sầu a bottle of water or soda in the cupholders. I"m also not a huge tín đồ of the USB ports" location under the shifter, where they"re difficult to access when you"re driving or when the car is parked.


For 2019, the HR-V got a redesigned grille, headlights, bumpers, và taillights, giving it an updated look. Inside, the Thể Thao comes with a 7.0-inch touchscreen that"s compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, & for the first time, the HR-V gets a volume knob on every trlặng (and not just on the LX, as before). With the Sport tryên ổn, you"ll get a leather-wrapped steering wheel, sport pedals, contrast stitching, a blaông chồng headliner, & gloss blachồng trlặng. Honda says it has equipped all 2019 HR-Vs with better sound-deadening materials, but we didn"t notice a huge difference compared khổng lồ past models.

One of Honda"s advantages over its competitors is exceptional packaging in a small car. Even though the HR-V is a subcompact SUV, it"s pretty spacious inside. With the driver"s seat phối to lớn my driving position, I had enough legroom in the bachồng seat to lớn ride comfortably. Headroom is a bit more compromised in the baông chồng, but it"s not bad. Another plus is the second-row Magic Seats. These can fold up lớn allow larger items in the cabin, or they can fold fully flat, leaving a huge cargo space. You can also fold down the passenger-side baông xã seat & fully recline the front passenger seat bachồng for even more space for lager items.

Given that this segment targets millennials, we wish the HR-V Thể Thao had more USB ports; there are only two in the whole cabin & none in the bachồng seat. Rear passengers get a 12-volt outlet, but there are no air vents or a center armrest.


Safety-wise, all EX và above trims come with Honda Sensing, which means they"re equipped with automatic emergency braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, & lane keep assist. The 2019 HR-V was named a 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick, getting Good ratings in all tests except the evaluations for headlights và LATCH hardware for child seats, where it got Acceptable grades. (The Touring"s LED headlights got Acceptable, but the HR-V"s standard halogens on other trims earned a Poor rating.) The trims equipped with Honda Sensing also received a Superior rating in the front crash prevention test.

The $24,665 2019 HR-V Sport AWD is an impressive sầu value, though for about that much money you could step up to a front-drive CR-V LX, which has more space, looks nicer, & drives better. You would chiến bại Apple CarPlay and Android Aukhổng lồ connectivity, but I"ve driven the CR-V LX for more than eight months and it"s a great SUV. Within its segment, the HR-V offers excellent interior space, & with two new trims and more technology, we"re sure its sales will keep increasing.
