Compact crossovers seem to be the “new thing.” Every automaker from Chevrolet, Buick, Toyota and Honda offer a compact crossover but it seems like their is a new fuel-efficient king in the segment.
The US Environmental Protection Agency has just announced the EPA estimated fuel-economy figures for the Honda HR-V, which will go on sale early spring. According to the EPA, the Honda HR-V will get an estimated 28/35 miles per gallon (city/highway) for the front-wheel-drive model.
Power for the 2016 Honda HR-V comes from a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine producing 138 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. Transmission options include a 7-speed manual or a CVT transmission.
Honda offers the HR-V with either two-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive drivetrain configurations.
