2021 Honda HR-V vs 2020 Honda HR-V

Serving Mt. Juliet, TN

The Honda HR-V could be the smaller crossover model that you have been hoping to find. As a subcompact model, it is the first crossover in Honda’s impressive lineup. For both 2020 and 2021, the HR-V is a mid-generational version that has exciting appeal. Honda has only made a small improvement to the 2021 HR-V at one trim level. Are you eager to get more familiar with the HR-V and to pick out your next vehicle from our showroom at Music City Honda?


The Honda HR-V’s capabilities leave no room for disappointment, and these capabilities are uniform across all four trim levels for 2020 and 2021. The trim options from the base level up are the LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L. All trims have standard equipment that includes front-wheel drive, a continuously variable transmission, and a 1.8-liter gas engine that puts out 141 horsepower. You can opt for the all-wheel drive at all trim levels.


The 2020 and 2021 HR-V are identical from front to rear across their exteriors with one notable exception. If you choose to buy the 2021 HR-V Sport, your crossover’s rear windshield will be tinted. The many other features and design elements throughout the exterior hold steady, and this includes the stunning angle that wraps across the side doors. Other features are a bar-themed grille, a roof-mounted antenna, a spoiler over the power liftgate, black molding, heated side mirrors, fog lights, and others.


While the Honda HR-V is the first crossover in the lineup, it is loaded with modern features at all trim levels. The base trim level for 2020 and 2021 has a climate control system, a folding rear row, a 5-inch screen for the multimedia equipment, a USB port and other gear. Higher-level trims for 2020 and 2021 come with keyless entry, Honda Sensing equipment, adaptive cruise control, a 7-inch display screen, a sunroof, two USB ports, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters, smart device integration, and more.

At Music City Honda, we will do our part to help each customer find the right crossover for their budget, needs, and lifestyle. If you are eager to get to know more about the HR-V, schedule time to tour our showroom by contacting the Music City Honda sales department soon.
