The 2016 Honda HR-V will slide in right under the $20,000 mark for a base model that isn’t really that basic. Honda announced Thursday all of the pricing for the HR-V.
The LX trim with front-wheel drive and a six-speed manual will start at $19,995, including the $880 destination charge. That gets you 17-inch wheels, Bluetooth and a backup camera, along with the usual power windows and locks and mirrors and air conditioning. Doing away with the shifting in favor of the continuously variable transmission adds $800. All-wheel drive comes only with the CVT and adds an additional $1,250.
EX trim adds a more elaborate backup camera, the touchscreen radio and automatic climate control, and starts at $22,045. The top EX-L Navi models – which add leather seats and navigation, obviously – come only with the CVT and kick off at $25,470.
We’ve driven the HR-V and it’s a good amount of car for the money. It’s going to undercut the Fiat 500X that goes on sale in May, and it’s better equipped than the Jeep Renegade that’s already on sale.
Honda says the HR-V will go on sale at its U.S. dealerships on May 15.
