The LX gets some great features for a base trim, starting with single-zone automatic climate control and auto on/off LED headlights. It also has remote keyless entry, push-button start, a 7-inch driver information display, touch-activated second-row reading lights, a 60/40-split second-row seat, and a rear roofline spoiler. Occupants can plug in as needed with a front console USB smartphone/audio interface, two USB charge ports in the center console, and a 12-volt power outlet in the cargo area. Honda has upgraded the HR-V’s infotainment system, and the LX gets a 7-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth for hands-free phone and audio streaming, an audio system with four speakers, and SMS text messaging. It also has access to HondaLink remote vehicle services.
The well-stocked base version of the Honda Sensing driver-assistive technology suite is standard as well to equip the LX with adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, forward collision warning, traffic jam assist, and traffic sign recognition). Automatic high beams and a rear-seat reminder are included as well.
The Sport’s visual differences start at the front with a more prominent grille and from the back with chrome exhaust finishers. It’s also ready for winter with heated front seats and frost-melting heated exterior mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators. Its other noteworthy attributes are a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, auto-up/down driver and front passenger windows, rear privacy glass, Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock (Honda’s advanced proximity entry/exit system), illuminated vanity mirrors, and an additional pair of speakers for the infotainment system (for a total of six). For added safety, it has blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
At the top of the line, the EX-L returns to the more straightforward appearance (without the unique grille and chrome exhaust ends found on the Sport), but it’s loaded with some in-demand upgrades. Some of those bonus items are leather seats, a power moonroof, wireless phone charging, dual-zone automatic climate control, ambient LED interior lighting, an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, and leather upholstery. The EX-L’s infotainment system turns things up a notch with a 9-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, high-definition radio, and a total of eight speakers. An auto-dimming rearview mirror, front and rear parking sensors, and low-speed braking control all contribute to increasing the safety factor.
