The 2020 Honda HR-V skips the lumbering part of the SUV equation. It’s a perky, pert little crossover with available all-wheel drive and a rear seat that flips and folds to please owners like a Pomski begging for treats.

It’s not the most efficient Honda, and low-cost models skip critical safety gear. As such, we give it a TCC Rating of 6.8 out of 10, a bit above average.

Carried over unchanged for 2020, the Honda HR-V stuffs a lot of personality into its 102.8-inch wheelbase. Its body riffs on hatchbacks and crossovers with sweeping strakes that run from the nose to the rear roof pillars. It’s a lot—maybe a bit too much at the front end and on the tailgate, where less probably would be more. The cabin has the tone right, and wears tough-looking clothes that clearly are meant to last, not to shimmer.

All 2020 HONDA HR-Vs tap a 1.8-liter inline-4 for 141 horsepower, channel it through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), and send the result to the front or to all four wheels. Acceleration is leisurely, and somewhat strained in uphill grades with more than a passenger aboard. The 2020 honda hr v does better in point-and-squirt city mazes, apropos to its vague Pac-Man shape, and it rides very well for a car of its size despite too-big 18-inch wheels on some versions. Gas mileage, at up to 30 mpg combined, isn’t stellar, but it’s good, and all-wheel drive doesn’t hurt it too much.

The 2020 honda hr v revels in space, as odd as that may sound. Front passengers fit fine, and so do those in the rear. With only one or two aboard, the2020 honda hr v manages a nifty party trick: Its rear seat bottoms flip up for tall cargo space behind the front passengers, and its rear seatbacks can fold down for a bin big enough to sleep in, up to 58.8 cubic feet on some versions.

Only 2020 honda hr v EX crossovers and more expensive versions get automatic emergency braking, which draws our side-eye glare, and only the Sport and above have a 7.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. For the best safety ratings, the LED headlights on the $30,000 or more Touring2020 honda hr v are required; at that price, you’re better off in the bigger, more miserly CR-V LX.

Honda has drawn a handsome hatchback-ish shape for its latest 2020 HONDA HR-V crossover, but the good looks have a flaw or two. We think it’s fine in the balance, and score it a 5 for style.

Crossover and coupe cues swirl together on the 2020 HONDA HR-V’s body. The look is generically good, mostly, if not compelling. The nifty swoop that lifts up through the 2020 HONDA HR-V’s doors and into its rear roof pillars shoves the shape forward—a fun visual trick—and the rear handles sprout from a high point on the door, where they don’t disrupt the flow.

It’s a complex juggling act to draw a small car with clean looks. The 2020 honda hr v tumbles down at the front, especially, where too many lines and textures compete for attention, a problem the Civic shares. In back, one too many body stampings tries to avoid a whiff of minivan at the tailgate. Sport models have more black trim and tone down the gloss, but more body-color paint might do a better job.

A tidy interior skips most of the glaring flaws. The 2020 honda hr v cockpit has elegant and simple lines, with a wing-like panel that offsets the driver-canted gauges and controls. A high center console and slim passenger-side air vents could be smaller and bigger, respectively; a panel of softer vinyl dresses up the dash nicely, as does the 7.0-inch touchscreen on all but the base LX model.
