Honda US to offer 6 variants of 2023 HR-V


Honda released the details of the upcoming 2023 HR-V for the US market, including the number of variants, their respective prices, and the distinct design detail found on each grade.


  • What are the six variants of the 2023 Honda HR-V in the US?

    The 2023 Honda HR-V's six variants are: LX (FWD), LX (AWD), Sport (FWD), Sport (AWD), EX-L (FWD), and EX-L (AWD).
  • Do these variants have distinct designs to tell which grade is which?

    Yes, each variant has a distinctive exterior design that indicates its place in the hierarchy.
  • According to the US arm of the Japanese carmaker, the 2023 Honda HR--V will be sold in America in six variants: LX (FWD), LX (AWD), Sport (FWD), Sport (AWD), EX-L (FWD), and EX-L (AWD).

    In terms of design, the LX variants will sport a matte honeycomb-style grille. Similarly, the lower section of the LX’s front and rear bumpers will be finished in matte. It will ride on large 17-inch alloy silver-painted wheels.


    The Sport variants will be donning an even more aggressive horizontal-themed grille mesh, a gloss-black rear spoiler, and a chrome exhaust finisher. Its lower portion is finished in gunmetal metallic while its exclusive 18-inch split five-spoke wheels are finished in gloss Berlina Black.


    For the range-topping EX-L variant, would-be owners can expect it to wear a unique gloss-black version of the honeycomb grille, gloss black door pillars, and gloss black trim on the front and rear bumpers which gives the EX-L grade a more upscale look. It will have 17-inch alloy wheels, painted Shark Gray with an exclusive machined finish.


    Inside, all HR-V variants are equipped with a seven-inch color LCD instrument display and an all-digital speedometer and tachometer. The instrument display features user-selectable functions such as Honda Sensing settings and vehicle information.


    Infotainment-wise, both the LX and Sport variants get a seven-inch touchscreen system with physical knobs for audio volume and station tuning, buttons along the bottom for switching modes, and a simplified menu structure.

    The upmarket EX-L variant, on the other hand, boasts a large nine-inch color touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, plus a Qi-compatible wireless charging pad and an upgraded audio system with eight speakers. It has a physical volume knob, large, easy-to-recognize icons, and a simplified navigation structure with fewer embedded menus.


    All models share the same 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a standard continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The CVT has been reengineered for improved power delivery, refinement, and engine sound and also features a more natural responsive feel thanks to improved G-Design programming and the addition of Honda's 'Step-Shift' programming, which according to the carmaker, simulates gear changes when accelerating at full throttle.


    “The new Honda HR-V is just the right size for young, active buyers looking for a sporty driving experience, and plenty of space and utility for an adventurous weekend escape. This new HR-V will welcome a new generation of customers to Honda, and we look to grow its position as the segment leader with young buyers, first-time buyers, and multicultural customers,” said American Honda Motor Co., Inc. Honda National Sales Assistant Vice President Michael Kistemaker.

    The 2023 Honda HR-V LX (FWD) is priced at US$23,650 while its AWD version will sell for US$25,150. The Sport (FWD) variant comes with a sticker price of US$25,650 while the Sport (AWD) has a price tag of US$27,150. Lastly, the EX-L (FWD) will retail for US$27,450 while its all-wheel-drive counterpart will cost US$28,950. These figures, said Honda, does not include the destination charge of US$1,245.
