The new Honda HR-V has been named the 2016 Green SUV of the Year by the Green Car Journal, recognizing the subcompact crossover’s excellent fuel economy and emissions performance. The EPA rates the 2016 Honda HR-V at up to 35 mpg highway when equipped with the efficient CVT, and it has been designated an Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle. In past years, both the 2012 Civic Natural Gas and 2014 Accord were honored with Green Car of the Year awards.
“With its active styling, smart features, and fuel economy leadership, the 2016 Honda HR-V gives car buyers an entirely new option in the small SUV category,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal. “The HR-V brings true environmental performance to this fast-growing category.”
It is hard to beat the 2016 Honda HR-V when it comes to space, versatility and fuel economy. The efficient subcompact crossover offers modern styling, sporty driving dynamics, plenty of features and fuel economy ratings similar to other small cars, but with an impressive 58.8 cubic feet of cargo space.
Buyers have the choice between an all-new continuously variable transmission or a six-speed manual transmission in the HR-V. CVT-equipped models also have available Real Time all-wheel drive for improved traction in any type of weather.
Every Honda HR-V is powered by a 141 hp 1.8-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder with Eco Assist fuel-saving technology. All trim levels of the HR-V come well-equipped with standard 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and streaming audio, remote entry and multi-angle rearview camera. Step up to the EX-L trim level and get features like a leather-trimmed interior, SiriusXM satellite radio and Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation.
