To show you what this versatile SUV can do for you Honda of Bay County put together this 2018 Honda HR-V specs page.
Honda HR-V Engine
The 2018 Honda HR-V is a compact SUV that provides you with both a capable and sporty drive. It runs on a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque at 4,300 RPM.
You’ll have your choice of which transmission you want to pair with this engine. You can be completely in control of the driving experience and gear shifts with a 6-Speed Manual Transmission.
If you don’t want to focus on manually changing gears, you can get an efficient performance and seamless shifting ability in a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).
The CVT is just the beginning of what makes this sporty engine so efficient. The valve train features Intelligent Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control (i-VTEC) to help maximize power and output.
With these two smart designs working in tandem, the engine has a 10.6:1 compression ratio. This also helps it with its fuel-efficiency. The 2018 Honda HR-V gets up to an EPA-estimated 28 MPG city and 34 MPG highwayÂ¹.
Honda HR-V Drivetrain
There’s two ways you can get around in your 2018 Honda HR-V. The first is with a two-wheel drive system. The second is with smart all-wheel drive (AWD).
When paired with the CVT, you can utilize the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. In addition to giving you all-wheel drive traction and stability, this system intelligently senses when your front wheels begin to slip and transfers torque to the rear axle.
Another great feature that comes with the CVT is the available paddle shifters on your steering wheel. With just the flick of your wrist you can get the freedom of manually controlling your gear shifts but without having to manage a clutch. This let’s you switch to a lower gear during difficult conditions faster than ever.
Honda HR-V Design
The ability to be tough and versatile is part of being a great SUV. The 2018 Honda HR-V has that spirit all the way down to its frame.
It was constructed with an Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE) Body Structure. This high-strength steel body was designed to absorb impact energy and direct it away from the passenger seating area. This gives you greater protection in the event of an accident.
The suspension and handling also feature that same level of smart, capable design. There’s a durable MacPherson Strut Front Suspension and a Torsion-Beam Rear Suspension, plus Electric Power-Assisted Rack-and-Pinion Steering.
These parts were designed to give you quick, agile handling. The 2018 Honda HR-V builds on that further with it’s 69.8-inch width and 102.8-inch wheelbase.
