A Leader Among the Leaders

With seemingly every carmaker joining the ranks of SUV manufacturers, one would think those models which were early to the race would be dropping down, as the competition heats up. However, the Honda HR-V has proven a stalwart, continually at or near the top of sales charts, with sales growing fast, even as new entrants continually come to market. The HR-V is the favourite sub-compact SUV of Canadian families, demonstrated by its wide array of capabilities and features, along with the legendary Honda reliability.

Safety Always Comes First

One of the reasons SUVs have become the most popular choice among families is the increased safety that comes with a larger vehicle. In this regard, the HRV delivers best in class results with the Honda Sensing Suite of advanced safety and driver assistance capabilities standard. Included is collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist.

Adding to the safety credentials is all-wheel drive, to deal with those icy, unpredictable Canadian winter roads. The 2020 HRV has also been updated with multi-element LED headlights and LED fog lights to help drivers keep a keen eye on the road. The upgraded CVT delivers a more natural driving feel which, combined with the addition of more active noise cancelling, creates a quieter operating environment, allowing greater concentration on the task of driving your family.

Modern Conveniences

Connectivity is a must in the modern age, and the HRV delivers with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard in the Touring model. Additionally, the navigation system has been greatly improved with sharper graphics and 3D rendered buildings. The inclusion of these contemporary must-haves allows long trips to be completed as stress free as possible for the kids, while delivering the driver right to the doorstep of their destination, no matter how remote.

Big Space, Small Package

The interior of the HR-V is also surprisingly spacious, being that it’s a compact SUV. With a deceptive amount of elbow and head space, even taller occupants will feel comfortable in both the front and the rear. Meanwhile, the Magic Seats in the back split 60/40, with super easy fold down capabilities, that transform the HRV into a cargo hauler unmatched in its class– and even competing with larger SUVs from other OEMs– with 1665 litres of cargo volume with the seats down.

The HRV is the perfect vehicle of choice for the growing Canadian family. Four-season capability provides ease of mind in any weather conditions, while excelling at the fundamentals: safety, reliability, easy to drive and great value for the content provided.
