New 2021 Honda HR-V for Sale in Edmonton, AB
Anyone shopping for a new vehicle who wants the high-riding style of an SUV but the small footprint, maneuverability and five-door practicality of a hatchback can get all that and more from the 2021 Honda HR-V. As the smallest and most affordable SUV in the current Honda lineup, the HR-V is perfect for commuting in and around Edmonton, and beyond.
A tasty quartet
The 2021 Honda HR-V is available in four distinct trim levels that start off with the entry-level LX-2WD. You obviously don’t have to be a seasoned detective to work out that this is a front-wheel-drive trim level, and this is the only one of the four trim levels that does offer a two-wheel-drive option.
Next up in the 2021 Honda HR-V family is the LX-AWD which is really the same as the base model but with the extra capability of all-wheel-drive as part of its standard specification. The third model in the lineup is the HR-V Sport and the Touring is the top-of-the-range version, and both of these are standard all-wheel-drive.
Perfect for the job
Subcompact vehicles of all types tend to stick with a single powerplant these days and the Honda HR-V is no exception. The unit chosen by Honda to power the 2021 HR-V is a 1.8-litre, 16-valve, SOHC, i-VTEC four-cylinder that puts out 141 horsepower and 127 lb.-ft. of torque, which is sent to the front or all four wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
All four versions of the HR-V feature an ECON mode button, and Sport and Touring models also come with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters for an element of manual control and a more engaging driving experience.
Honda's Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System isn't designed for hardcore off-roading, but it's a huge help when you’re on Anthony Henday Drive in the winter and it could also tackle the odd moderate trail adventure outside the city.
Capable, flexible and fun
Most small vehicles need to make the absolute most of the available space inside them to make them a practical option for as many potential buyers as possible and to be successful in today's demanding market, and no rival manages this better than the 2021 Honda HR-V.
There's ample legroom and headroom for those sitting in the front and the back of the Honda, and even with the rear seats in place, there's a generous 668 litres of cargo space behind. Fold the seats down and it then opens up an impressive 1,665 litres of cargo volume.
Every HR-V comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, electronic parking brake, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, auto high beams, body-coloured heated power side mirrors, automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, a multi-angle rearview camera and a full set of power features.
