Fuel-Saving Features and MPG Ratings

Malin and Keno drivers will enjoy a powerful 141-hp 1.8L 4-cylinder engine under the hood of the 2016 Honda HR-V. The engine is paired with either 6-Speed manual transmission or a a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). The HR-V can also be equipped with the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ for advanced all-wheel-drive capability.

Each model also comes with an Eco Assist System that aids in keeping fuel-consumption low, and it also features coaching bars to help drivers develop efficient driving habits. The Eco Coaching provides feedback via color-changing displays that indicate efficiency in real time. Behaviors like smooth acceleration and braking cause the display to glow green to show that you are saving fuel, while forceful starts and stops that consume extra fuel cause the display to glow blue.

A 2016 HR-V with 6-speed manual transmission and 2WD will see drivers earning up to 25 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway,* while the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with 2WD earns up to an incredible 28 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.* Those are high numbers for a crossover, and they remain relatively high even when the HR-V is equipped with AWD and a CVT, which will result in 27 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.*
