2021 Honda HR-V for Sale in North Attleboro, MA
With its blend of build quality, affordability, reliability, and sought-after features, the 2021 Honda HR-V is one of the leaders in the subcompact crossover market. Still in its first generation, this five-seater debuted for the 2016 model year as the smaller sibling to the best-selling CR-V. While it has plenty of high points, one standout attribute is the versatile Magic Seat, which folds completely back and out of the way to expose a flat floor that fits a surprising amount of cargo, even oversized and awkwardly shaped items. The ’21 HR-V is available with some exterior elements that elevate its appearance and personality, including newly styled 18-inch wheels (Sport trim only) and blacked-out exterior elements, like a confident-looking honeycomb grille.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2021 Honda HR-V is a popular small crossover with a lot of appealing attributes. It’s available in four trim levels: LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L. Its efficient powertrain consists of a 141-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine and a continuously variable transmission. Front-wheel drive comes as the default, but all-wheel drive is optional, with FWD versions getting an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city and 34 mpg highway and AWD HR-Vs returning 27 city/31 highway.

The base LX has more than just the essentials: automatic-off headlights, a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, two 12-volt power outlets (one up front and one in the second row), a 5-inch infotainment display, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, a front console USB port, and a four-speaker sound system. The second row has Honda’s versatile 60/40 split second-row Magic Seat, which has three modes (Long, Tall, and Utility) to help accommodate awkwardly shaped or oversized cargo. In Long mode (with the front passenger’s seat and rear seats folded down) the HR-V can carry items up to 8 feet long. In Tall mode, the Magic Seat folds away to provide nearly 4 feet of vertical space. And folding down both the front passenger seat and the back row (Utility mode) provides 58.8 cubic feet of cargo space.
The Sport ramps things up with sleek exterior trim in gloss-black, plus some added features: roof rails, fog lights, and tinted rear glass. On the inside, it gets sport pedals, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, paddle shifters, a front console USB smartphone/audio interface, a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HondaLink remote services, and SMS text messaging. Its rearview camera is also enhanced with dynamic parking guidelines for added confidence when you’re backing up.
Although the EX loses the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, it makes up for it with a broader slate of desirable standard features. Outside, this includes automatic-on/off headlights, a moonroof, Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock (an advanced keyless entry system that locks the doors automatically if you forget), heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, and rear privacy glass. Inside, the EX adds push-button ignition, illuminated vanity mirrors, automatic climate control, heated front seats, a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, and HD radio. The Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist technologies is standard as well, adding collision mitigation braking, forward collision warning, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, and lane departure warning. Automatic high beams and Honda LaneWatch blind-spot monitoring are included as well.
The top-end EX-L is the most premium of the bunch. It returns the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and adds an auto-dimming rearview mirror and leather seats. If you’re interested in decking it out even further, you’ll want to consider checking out some of the various accessories on offer: all-weather floor mats, center console ambient lighting, illuminated door sill trim, a cargo tray for the rear storage floor, and a hard cargo cover for keeping stored items safe and out of sight.
Comfort and Convenience
The base-level LX receives automatic high beams, a 60/40 split second-row Magic Seat, high-visibility LED brake lights, a height-adjustable (manually controlled) driver’s seat, and a rear roofline spoiler in body color. The Sport is provided with roof rails, fog lights, sport pedals, gloss-black exterior elements, the aforementioned paddle shifters, underbody spoilers, an exhaust pipe finisher, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. The EX loses the sport pedals, black elements, spoilers, and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, but it inherits a moonroof, Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock (unlocks the doors without you needing to take the key fob from your pocket and locks the doors automatically in case you forget), heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, variable intermittent windshield wipers, illuminated vanity mirrors, automatic climate control, push-button start, and heated front seats. At the top of the range, the EX-L returns the leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob and is also outfitted with an auto-dimming rearview mirror and leather upholstery.
Safety and Technology
The LX has Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, LED daytime running lights, and a rearview camera with guidelines; the Sport has those same features, but its rearview camera is upgraded with dynamic guidelines for optimal backing assistance. The EX and EX-L come with the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist technologies, including collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning. Honda’s LaneWatch blind-spot monitor and automatic high beams are also provided on the two highest trims.
The base infotainment system in the LX has a 5-inch central screen, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming capability, and a four-speaker audio system; there’s also a USB port in the front console. The Sport upgrades its system with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SMS text message functionality, and a more powerful four-speaker audio system (180-watt vs. 160-watt); it also gets an additional USB port. The EX tops off with SiriusXM satellite radio and HD radio.
