The 2022 Honda HR-V comes with no changes or additions from the 2021 model year. Having said that, the US might also get a modified e:HEV Honda HR-V, later on in 2022. The 2022 HR-V continues with the same four trims - LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L, prices starting at an MSRP of $21,420. Built on the same underpinnings from the discontinued Honda Fit, it wouldn't be wise enough to expect much from the same.



The 2022 HR-V will come with the same 1.8L inline-4 engine making 141 hp and a choice of FWD and AWD drivetrain. The spacious interior will continue to feature heated front row seats and even leather upholstery on higher trims with the upholstery options. The exterior will continue with 6 attractive color options as well and attractive wheels designs. That said, the 2022 HR-V will come into direct competition with the Hyundai Kona, Kia Soul, and Subaru Crosstrek.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The HR-V is a decent choice for a subcompact SUV. Utility is top-notch, and it has a comfortable and quiet cabin - Edmunds.

The 2022 Honda HR-V is available in four varied trim choices. Honda does offer financing and leasing services for the HR-V, from which you can get a base LX trim with FWD drivetrain for $341 per month for 36 months with $936 due at signing. If you choose to finance it, it will cost you $396 per month for 60 months with a 1.9% APR. You could also pay $472 per month for 48 months and get the HR-V at 0% APR.

The 2022 HR-V carries forward the same 1.8-L Inline-4 making 141 hp. The interior features cloth upholstery and leather upholstery (EX-L trim only), automatic climate control, and a 5.0-inch touchscreen which can be upgraded to a 7.0-inch touchscreen which comes with the essentials. Safety features cover the basics but the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assist features are only available on EX and EX-L trims.

What is the price of the 2022 Honda HR-V?

The 2022 Honda HR-V starts off at a competitive price of $21,420, for the base LX trim, and goes all the way up to $27,720 for the EX-L trim.

What is the Release Date of the 2022 Honda HR-V?

As there are no changes being brought about for the MY 2022, we can expect the Honda HR-V to hit showrooms sometime at the end of this year.


Buying Advice

Priced at an MSRP of $24,620, the EX trim with FWD is the trim to get of the 2022 Honda HR-V as it comes with heated front row seats, the improved 7-inch infotainment system with SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto, and will also come with Honda Sensing - the suite of advanced safety features. It turns out to be the most value for money proposition of the lot.

Features
8.0/10

The 2022 Honda HR-V will come in a similar 4 trim lineup, namely LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L, with prices starting from an MSRP of $21,420. It was expected to start with a new generation and come as an all-new vehicle which is similar to the HR-V launched in the European market. However, for the 2022 HR-V, Honda has confirmed that there are no changes from the 2021 model year, which means that in the 2023 model year we could see the new generation. The Honda HR-V will come with a 1.8-liter inline-4 engine and the power will go to the front wheels. For an additional $1,500 more you can get an AWD drivetrain. As there are no changes to the model, Honda is also carrying forward all the features available in each trim with no additions as well.

Engine and Performance
7.0/10

Slow, noisy, and unrefined, the HR-V's four-cylinder engine won't satisfy your inner street racer - Car And Driver.

The 2022 Honda HR-V comes with no changes to the engine or the mechanical parts from the 2021 model. The 2022 HR-V has a sole engine option in the form of a 1.8L naturally aspirated inline-4 which makes 141 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired to a CVT which directs all the power to the front wheels and has the option of an AWD drivetrain.

The 2022 Honda HR-V comes with enough power for everyday driving and the ride is comfortable but it does face a few issues with body roll in fast turns and you are pushing it a bit. In terms of performance, it is not as good as one would expect, as the 2022 HR-V will be able to sprint from 0-60 MPH in just about 9.6 seconds, all the while crossing the quarter-mile barrier at 17.8 secs, and a top speed of 116 mph.

The paltry 141 hp engine is also met with a not-so-inspiring driving dynamics of the 2022 Honda HR-V. Add to it the loathsome CVT drone, and you are left wanting for more from the sub-compact SUV. The most power is offered by the Subaru Crosstrek which makes 152 hp and only comes with AWD only. Following this is the Hyundai Kona and Kia Soul both making 147 hp, however, the Kia Soul has the fastest 0-60 MPH time of 8.8 seconds, solely because of its lower curb weight.

Fuel Economy
5.0/10

The 2022 Honda HR-V is rated at an EPA estimated fuel economy figure of 28 MPG in the city, 34 MPG on the highway, and a combined mpg of 30. This is with the FWD drivetrain, when equipped with an AWD drivetrain, the fuel economy drops to 27/31/29 MPG in the city/highway/combined, respectively.

However, the AWD drivetrain on the Sport and higher trims give 26/31/28 MPG in the city/highway/combined, respectively. Every 2022 HR-V is equipped with a 13.2-gallon fuel tank which gives it a combined 396 miles, the same as the Hyundai Kona. However, the Kia Soul and Subaru Crosstrek which have the same combined fuel economy have a larger fuel tank giving a better driving range.

Interior
8.0/10

The HR-V's interior is one of its best features, with plenty of room for adults to spread out in the front or back row - Edmunds

For the 2022 Honda HR-V, a much-needed interior upgrade was expected, but that has been postponed to 2023, as the 2022 HR-V will adorn the same interior as the 2021 model. The interior features a 6-way manually-adjustable driver’s seat and a 4-way manually-adjustable front passenger seat. Heating functions to the front row seats are only on the EX and EX-L trims.

Interior upholstery is cloth on the LX, Sport, and EX trim. However, the EX-L trim does get leather upholstery available in only one color - Black. The LX and Sport come with single-zone manual climate control., however, the EX and EX-L do come with automatic climate control. The 2022 Honda HR-V comes with 24.3-inches of cargo space.

The interior comes with adequate space across both rows, but when compared to the competition, it offers the most space in the back row. The Kia Soul is the only competitor that offers more cargo capacity than the Honda HR-V. In terms of infotainment, the base LX trim comes with a 5.0-inch touchscreen, the rest of the trims get a larger 7-inch touchscreen.

The 5.0-inch touchscreen comes with Bluetooth connectivity, radio, USB port, and a 4-speaker sound system. The bigger 7-inch touchscreen adds Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Honda Link, Pandora capability, SMS text messaging function, but features like SiriusXM and HD Radio are offered only on the EX and EX-L trim.

Exterior
8.0/10

The Honda HR-V speaks the corporate design language of the Honda brand - Kelley Blue Book (KBB)

There are no changes to the exterior design of the 2022 Honda HR-V, even as there were many rumors that it would look like the new European specced HR-V. The exterior features similar styling to the CR-V and has halogen projector headlights with LED taillights, a chrome grille insert housing the Honda emblem as you see on many Honda models, and 17-inch wheels. 

The Sport trim has its own unique styling cues and is the only trim to come with 18-inch matte black alloy wheels and gloss black exterior trim for that sportier look. 18-inch alloy wheels are available on the EX and EX-L trims as an optional extra. There are exterior packages on all trims and also accessories on offer too.

In terms of dimensions, the Honda HR-V measures 170.4-inches in length which is 6.1-inches shorter in length than the Subaru Crosstrek but is longer than both the Hyundai Kona and Kia Soul. The most ground clearance is offered by the Subaru Crosstrek, followed by the HR-V which gives 7.3-inches, and then comes the Kona and Soul with 6.7-inches each. Kia Soul is also the lightest SUV of the lot, and thus that aids in its competitive acceleration times.

Some of the exterior features for the 2022 Honda HR-V are:

  • LED headlamps with LED DRLs
  • New alloy wheel design
  • New rear license garnish
  • LED fog lamps
  • Rear privacy glass
  • Powered ORVMs
  • One-touch moonroof with tilt
Safety
6.0/10

The 2021 Honda HR-V has been crash-tested by the NHTSA and has scored an overall 5-star safety rating, out of a possible 5-stars. The IIHS has also crash-tested the 2021 HR-V, wherein it scored an overall "Good" safety rating. Keeping this in mind, we expect similar safety ratings from the 2022 HR-V, if not more. 

The 2022 HR-V comes with many safety features like ABS, stability control with traction control, tire pressure monitoring system, brake assist, multi-angle rear-view camera, and a few more as standard. The EX and EX-L come with Honda Sensing - Honda's suite of driver-assist technologies as standard features.

Honda Sensing includes:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System
  • Road Departure Mitigation system
  • Adaptive Cruise control
  • Lane Keeping Assist System
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Honda LaneWatch
  • Auto High-beam headlights
Competition
6.0/10

2022 Honda HR-V vs 2021 Kia Soul

The Kia Soul comes with a good performance quotient and more power than the Honda HR-V. In terms of fuel economy, it does offer similar figures but a lot more in terms of driving range.

On the interior, the space is similar but it does come with a lot more cargo space. as the starting price of the Kia Soul is about $2,000 lesser than the HR-V, we say the Soul is the better car.

2022 Honda HR-V vs 2021 Subaru Crosstrek

The Subaru Crosstrek offers the most amount of power among the competition and offers better performance and comes with AWD as standard. It comes with the largest fuel tank and offers much more driving range and also similar fuel economy, even though it's AWD.

On the interior, the space is the same but offers slightly lesser cargo space. However, the Subaru Crosstrek is priced at $22,145, making it a good subsequent option to the HR-V.

Final Verdict

The 2022 Honda HR-V has been carried forward from the previous model year and also comes with the exact same set of features as the 2021 model. There have been many rumors for a full-redesign but that will have to wait for the future model year. The Honda HR-V does have better interior space than the competition but lesser power and performance, but if you are looking for a more affordable option with adequate space at an affordable price, do take a look at the 2022 HR-V. Although, having said that, we'd recommend you wait, and go for the 2023 HR-V, as if rumors are to be believed, it'll get a full top-to-bottom update, which is well worth the wait.
