Honda offers four different flavours of HR-V, with prices starting at $25,990 before on-road costs for the VTi and extending to $36,240 before on-roads for the VTi-LX.

Update, 12/08/2020: Honda has added new interior colour options to the range-topping RS and VTi-LX models. We’ve added mention to the equipment list at the bottom of this story, and brought the story forward.

Update, 07/05/2021: Honda has upped prices on the 2021 HR-V. We’ve updated the story to reflect the changes.

The HR-V is another crossover pioneer, having debuted as a smaller cousin to the CR-V in 1999. Although it has hidden rear door handles, the current model is far more conventional than the two-door first-generation car.

It’s a strong seller for Honda, having found 11,731 homes in Australia last year.

The Honda HR-V was updated in April 2020. Check out more of the details here, and see our thoughts on the HR-V RS here.


  • 2021 Honda HR-V VTi: $26,900 (+$910)
  • 2021 Honda HR-V VTi-S: $31,200 (+$810)
  • 2021 Honda HR-V RS: $34,500 (+$810)
  • 2021 Honda HR-V VTi-LX: $36,950 (+$710)

All prices exclude on-road costs


Power in the 2021 Honda HR-V comes from a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine making 105kW and 172Nm, sent to the front wheels through a CVT.

All-wheel drive is not available, regardless of which model you select.

Fuel economy

How much fuel the 2020 Honda HR-V uses depends on the model.

Although they share an engine, the VTi, VTi-S, RS, and VTi-LX all have different wheels and body add-ons.

With that in mind, Honda claims 6.6L/100km for the VTi, 6.9L/100km for the VTi-S, 6.7L/100km for the RS, and 6.9L/100km for the VTi-LX.

2021 Honda HR-V price and specs


The Honda HR-V has a five-star ANCAP rating on the back of testing conducted in 2015.

An update in 2019 made low-speed autonomous emergency braking standard across the range, but blind-spot monitoring is still reserved for high-grade models.


The 2021 Honda HR-V measures 4343mm long, 1772mm wide and 1605mm tall, with a 2610mm wheelbase.

Boot space is listed at 437L with the rear seats in place, and 1462L with them folded.
