The New 2021 Honda HR-V | Features and Performance

Is the 2021 Honda HR-V the Right Crossover For Your Augusta Travels?

As the smallest crossover in the Honda lineup, the 2021 Honda HR-V isn't short on space or features. With plenty of tech to help add both safety and convenience to your driving experience, available all-wheel drive to help you manage the ever-changing weather around Auburn and Portland, and plenty of space inside to help power your daily life, this new Honda crossover provides an experience that goes beyond expectations. Charlie's Honda is here to give Lewiston and Waterville, Maine drivers a run down on what to expect from the 2021 Honda HR-V before you head on down for a test drive!

What's New for 2021?

The 2021 Honda HR-V lineup remains mostly unchanged for the new model year. You'll find a new wheel design on Sport trim models, and tinted rear windows to add privacy and sunshade to those riding in the back seat.


The 2021 Honda HR-V comes with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque. It's available with an intelligent all-wheel drive system that gives you a focus on fuel economy under normal driving conditions, but can react to wheel slip and other adverse conditions and deliver power to all four wheels whenever necessary. This helps make the 2021 Honda HR-V a great vehicle for your daily commute from Waterville to Camden, as it is fuel efficient on dry summer days but gives you confidence when the snow and ice take over the roads during winter. You'll get a hill-start assist to prevent you from rolling backwards while stopped on an incline, and the Eco Assist system helps you focus on fuel economy to get the most out of every drop of fuel.


The 2021 Honda HR-V is packed with modern technology, including the basics like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability that seamlessly integrate your smartphone with the infotainment display. You'll also get the benefit of HondaLink on all Sport and above Honda HR-V models. This system gives you access to your Honda crossover no matter where you happen to be. An app on your smartphone will let you control door locks, start the engine, and see your vehicle's location no matter where you are. And with this app you can also check fuel levels and vehicle status reports, plus schedule service appointments to help keep up with routine maintenance as needed.


Safety is a major component of the 2021 Honda HR-V thanks to the standard Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced driver assistance features. You'll get forward collision alert and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection combined into one system called the Collision Mitigation Braking System. You'll also get lane-keep assist and adaptive cruise control to help bolster highway safety, and you can add blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert to improve safety in a wide range of scenarios. Front and rear park assists also help avoid those minor scrapes and bumps that can happen in tight spaces, and a wide-angle rearview camera helps you see what's behind you more clearly.

Comfort and Cargo Space

The cabin of the 2021 Honda HR-V comfortably seats five, and you'll get features like dual-zone automatic climate control and a power-sliding panoramic moonroof to provide greater comfort as you travel. Plus, with up to 24.3 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats up and nearly 60 cubic feet of cargo room with the seats folded flat, you'll have plenty of room for your biggest adventures.
