The 2023 Honda HR-V is the newest version of one of the most popular vehicles in the subcompact crossover segment and it now benefits from more characteristics that make it a great buy for young families than ever before.
A generous interior
Young families need lots of space in their vehicles to comfortably fit two adults, child seats and all of the necessary items that need to be carried everywhere. Since it grew in size over the previous model, the 2023 Honda HR-V is better equipped than ever to meet the needs of families in terms of space. The new HR-V has one of the largest rear legroom of any SUV in its class with 998 millimetres between the rear seat and the front seatbacks. This is important because it means that bulky rear-facing child seats will fit in the back seat of the HR-V without requiring the front seats to be pushed all the way forward, which makes the parents more comfortable and the children safer. The cargo compartment of the HR-V is also a good reason to buy one since it is capable of holding 691 liters, which is more than its competition.
More safety features than before
The 2023 Honda HR-V includes more safety features than before, which makes it one of the safest vehicles in its class. These new features include revised airbags for the front seat occupants as well as standard side airbags for rear seat passengers, which better protects everyone on board in case of a crash. In order to prevent accidents, the new HR-V includes the traffic jam assist and revised versions of the lane keeping assist and the adaptive cruise control.
More fun to drive
Having a family doesn’t mean being forced into a boring car. This is why the 2023 Honda HR-V is one of the most fun-to-drive options in its segment due to its revised suspension system, its stronger chassis, and its new engine. Replacing last year’s 1,8L engine, the 2023 HR-V is powered by a standard 2,0L four-cylinder that delivers 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque to better suit drivers with an active lifestyle.
