2016 Honda HR-V MPG Numbers Announced
Crossover gets up to 31 mpg combined.
The highest-rated 2016 Honda HR-V model is a front-wheel-drive, CVT-equipped crossover, which gets 28 mpg city, 31 mpg combined, and 35 mpg highway. All models come standard with the same 1.8-liter four-cylinder found in the Honda Civic. A six-speed manual transmission is standard for front-wheel drive models, and is rated at a slightly lower 25 mpg city, 28 mpg combined, and 34 mpg on the highway.
Also on the 2016 Honda HR-V's option list is all-wheel drive, which pairs only with the CVT. Adding all-weather traction also lowers the HR-V's mileage to 27 mpg city, 29 mpg combined, and 32 mpg highway. We don't yet know specifications for this four-cylinder in the HR-V crossover, but we would expect it to make around the same 140 hp and 129 lb-ft of torque as it does in the Civic compact.
These MPG numbers put the 2016 Honda HR-V at the top of the emerging subcompact crossover segment, at least for now. We still don't have numbers for the upcoming 2016 Mazda CX-3 and 2015 Jeep Renegade, but the HR-V does beat the 2015 Chevrolet Trax (29 mpg combined) and the 2015 Nissan Juke (30 mpg combined).
Stay tuned for more information to come about the 2016 Honda HR-V, including price and full specifications, as we approach the crossover's on-sale date that's currently set for this spring.
