When going about your day-to-today routine around Milwaukee, Greenfield, and Waukesha, WI, you want an SUV that makes the most of every mile. The 2021 Honda HR-V does just that, from its efficient engine to its standard and available energy-enhancing features.
Our team at Schlossmann Honda City created the following review of the Honda HR-V MPG to give you an idea of how this sporty model can support your everyday adventures.
2021 Honda HR-V: Engine, Transmission, & Fuel Economy
When cruising in the Honda HR-V, you can expect to enjoy an EPA-estimated 28 city/34 highway MPG for all 2-wheel-drive (2WD) trims and an EPA-estimated 27 city/31 highway/29 MPG for all-wheel-drive (AWD) LX trims.1
To help it achieve this impressive rating, you will find a peppy 141-horsepower engine with 127 lb-ft of torque under the hood. Along with that, it features a 13.2-gallon fuel tank.
Another way the 2021 Honda HR-V maximizes efficiency is through its Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT). Not only does it continually improve efficiency, it also increases acceleration and the stepless shifting system delivers smoother transitions than a traditional automatic transmission.
For extra thrills, you can also add a Sport Mode with available dual-mode paddle shifters that enable quicker, more engaging gear shifts.
Enhanced Efficiency & Control in the Honda HR-V
The 2021 Honda HR-V comes standard with an Eco Assist™ System that includes a Driver Feedback System and ECON mode. On the instrument panel, you will find details about your driving efficiency via the Driver Feedback System. With ECON mode activated, you can improve your gas mileage by altering how much the vehicle uses energy-demanding features.
Another available feature that balances efficiency and performance in the Honda HR-V is Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™. It adjusts to meet the demands of the road by only sending power to the rear wheels when needed. It further helps you tackle every curve with confidence by redistributing torque between the front and rear wheels.
2021 Honda HR-V: Technology to Improve Your MPG
When equipped with the optional Adaptive Cruise Control, the Honda HR-V lets you pick your preferred speed and select a specific following distance to the vehicle ahead. Depending on a few different factors, you can choose from a short, medium, or long interval. To maintain this distance, the system adjusts the vehicle’s throttle and braking.
Keeping a steady pace enables both the engine and transmission to perform at their best. In turn, decreasing the number of times that you brake, slow down, and accelerate again can help improve efficiency while you drive.
Another important element of maximizing efficiency is proper tire inflation. The 2021 Honda HR-V makes it easy to stay tuned into your tires with its standard Tire Pressure Monitoring System. If the pressure of your tires drops well-below the recommended level, this system illuminates an alert on the gauge cluster.
