Serving Groton, CT

If you are getting serious about your next crossover SUV purchase, your attention may rightfully be focused on the beautiful HR-V. This subcompact crossover is the first model in Honda's extensive lineup, and it delivers the safety features, style, and capabilities that you expect from any modern Honda vehicle. Before you can make your next purchase with the highest degree of confidence, you need to know how the HR-V's trim levels for the 2020 and 2021 model years compare.


The trim lineup for the 2020 HR-V has not changed going into the 2021 model year. The options are the EX-L, the EX, the Sport, and the LX from highest to lowest. At all trims, front-wheel drive is included, and all-wheel drive is offered. A continuously variable transmission and a 141-horsepower, 1.8-liter gas engine are also standard gear at all of the 2020 and 2021 HR-V trim levels.


With the Honda HR-V's twisting accents along the sides and its confident profile, it has looks that get noticed. In 2021, the HR-V Sport has the only notable improvement across the trims. This is the addition of a tinted rear windshield. The equipment and style elements included in both the 2020 and 2021 HR-V trims are heated side mirrors with powered adjustments, black lower-body molding, a power liftgate topped by a spoiler, and a bar design through the grille, LED lights, foglamps, and other equipment.


Opt for the base HR-V LX for 2020 or 2021. The crossover will have cloth seats, a USB port, a multimedia system with a 5-inch screen, a folding rear row, Honda Sensing® assistive technologies, a climate management system, and many other features. At the higher HR-V trim levels for both years, you can appreciate premium features like paddle shifters, two USB ports, a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, smart device integration, a 7-inch display screen, keyless entry, a sunroof, adaptive cruise control, and several additional features.
