Engine Specifications

The new HR-V is powered by an efficient 1.8L inline 4-cylinder engine. The engine develops up to 141-hp at 6500 rpm as well as 127 lb.-ft. of torque at 4300 rpm. It has a 16-valve SOHC i-VTEC valvetrain, and the engine uses multi-point fuel injection. Drive-by-wire throttle system is standard. The aluminum-alloy engine block and cylinder head allow the HR-V’s engine to be lightweight, boosting its efficiency for you to enjoy a sportier drive as well as a better return on fuel usage.


There are two transmissions available on the 2017 Honda HR-V. Depending on your driving preferences, you’ll want to choose the option that will offer you the ease or control that you’re looking for.

2017 Honda HR-V Engine

  • Manual Transmission: A 6-speed manual transmission is standard on the HR-V. Enjoy the hands-on approach of changing the gear yourself for a more interactive driving style. The 6-speed manual transmission is offered on the LX and EX trims, but it is not available on the EX-L Navi trim.
  • Continuously Variable Transmission: This automatic transmission works with one continuously changing gear that adapts to the speed and output needed at the time. The CVT generally offers better fuel economy than a traditional automatic transmission, so you’ll see a difference at the pump.

Fuel Economy

Depending on which transmission you go with and if you opt to add AWD or not, you’ll have slightly different numbers for how many miles to the gallon you can get (City/Highway/Combined).

Special Performance Features

In addition to the engine and transmission, the 2017 Honda HR-V features other performance features that help make this compact crossover fun to drive while delivering you and your family to your destination safely. Much thought went into the design of this crossover to offer all of the below and more!

  • Available Real-Time AWD with Intelligent Control System: All three trims offer this advanced AWD system which will make driving through Wyoming winter conditions much easier as power is delivered to all four wheels when it’s needed. The Intelligent Control System monitors for loss of traction and delivers power to the rear wheels immediately when it is needed.
  • EcoAssist: All CVT models of the HE-V have this eco-friendly boost to the engine. You’ll be able to hit the ECON button or Eco Coaching to offer better fuel return when the HR-V adjusts power output where it is not necessarily needed at the time. A color indicator around your speedometer will indicate whether your driving style is at its most efficient ability at the present time.
  • Hill Start Assist: Whether you’re parked on ah ill or stopped at a red light on an incline, this system works to ensure you always start going forward instead of rolling back to the car behind you or lose control while heading up a steep incline.
  • Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control: Always maintain control of the HR-V with this technology that monitors for oversteer, understeer, or wheelslip and provides braking on the wheels it may be needed at so that you have maximum traction at all times.
  • Suspension: In the front of the vehicle, you’ll have MacPherson Strut front suspension. In the rear, the HR-V uses Torsion-Beam rear suspension system. Together, these suspensions systems work together to ensure you’ll have a smooth ride wherever you’re headed.
