Among the 2023 Honda models, the HR-V is undoubtedly the one that experienced the most changes, in comparison with last year’s models.

Learn more about the various improvements that the Japanese manufacturer made on this SUV for 2023. We’ll give you a quick rundown of the most interesting details on its new engine, cabin, price and dimensions.

A Dynamic Engine for the 2023 HR-V

The engine of the Honda HR-V is one of the components that was redesigned for the 2023 version. In fact, this Honda SUV now offers an engine that’s more powerful than ever before.

Under the hood of this new HR-V model, we find a 2.0 L 4-cylinder engine that makes 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque.

The HR-V comes with a continuously variable transmission and an intelligent all-wheel drive system that can adapt to difficult road conditions, like snow or mud.

If you prefer front-wheel drive, it’s also available on this SUV’s base model, the 2023 Honda HR-V LX.

Equipped with a 2.0 L engine and all-wheel drive, the 2023 HR-V displays fuel consumption ratings of:

  • 9.4 L/100 km in the city
  • 7.8 L/100 km on the highway
  • For a combined consumption of 8.7 L/100 km

If you would rather opt for front-wheel drive, you can shave off 0.4 L/100 km on these ratings to get the HR-V LX 2RM ratings.

With this Honda SUV, you get a vehicle that remains agile, no matter the road conditions, while offering you one of the best fuel economy in its class.

A Reinvented Interior for the 2023 HR-V SUV

In addition to its powerful engine, the cabin of the Honda HR-V has also received many improvements for 2023.

To start with, the touchscreen gained 2 inches during its update. In fact, the standard display now measures 7 inches, and those who go for the HR-V EX-L will get a 9-inch display that also includes a navigation system.

This new screen is of course not the only interesting thing inside the Honda HR-V.

This SUV offers a good selection of accessories, both in terms of safety and entertainment, and many of those are new on the 2023 model. On this list, we can find:

  • CarPlayMD and Android AutoMD systems
  • Siri Eyes Free compatibility
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Warning
  • The Honda HR-V Sport and the superior trim also include a heated steering wheel
  • And much more!

For that matter, it’s this outstanding cabin makeover that several journalists have praised in their Honda HR-V reviews. For example, Motortrend said, about this model:

“With added infotainment and safety technology, the 2023 HR-V is more appealing than ever.”[1]


The Honda automobile manufacturer is not afraid to improve its vehicles year after year, and for this model year the HR-V is one of the best examples we have of this fact.

An Improved Cargo Volume for this 2023 Honda

 This year, the HR-V gained a little bit in bulk. This was done wisely and the cargo volume of this subcompact SUV takes full advantage of this expansion.

Behind the rear seats, you’ll have 691 L of cargo volume, a decent amount of space that can easily be increased up to 1,559 L by folding down the rear seats.

In addition to offering more cargo volume than the previous model, the 2023 HR-V also gives you more space than many other subcompacts, as well as more room so that you and your passengers can sit comfortably.

For a vehicle that perfectly combines the agility of a subcompact and the practicality of a SUV, there’s no better choice than the 2023 Honda HR-V.
