2021 Honda HR-V price and specs

As with the rest of the Honda range, from July 1, 2021 the HR-V has fixed drive-away pricing, cheaper servicing and standard metallic paint.

Published

Honda offers four different flavours of HR-V, with prices starting at $31,300 drive-away for the base VTi.

UPDATE, 30/06/21 Honda has announced post-July 1 pricing for the 2021 HR-V as part of its new fixed-price Price Promise strategy.

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 quirky first-generation car that offered a two-door option.

It’s a strong seller for Honda, having found 8181 homes in Australia last year.

The Honda HR-V was updated in April 2020, receiving wired Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Honda added new interior colour options to the RS and VTi-LX models in August 2020, while prices were increased by $710-910 across the board in 2021 ahead of the introduction of the Honda ‘Price Promise’.

Prior to July 1, 2021, the range opened at $26,900 before on-road costs, with the new base price now $31,300 drive-away.

A redesigned HR-V is due in Australia within the next 12 months and will offer the option of a hybrid powertrain.

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

Fuel Economy

How much fuel the 2021 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.

All models have a 50L fuel tank and run on 91RON regular unleaded fuel.

Dimensions

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.

Servicing and Warranty

Maintenance is required every 12 months or 10,000km – whichever comes first.

From July 1, 2021, the first five services are capped at $125. That means the HR-V costs just $625 to service over the first five years, down from $1544 previously.

As with the rest of the Honda range, the HR-V is backed by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty and comes with five years of roadside assist.

Safety

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. All models also feature front, front-side and curtain airbags.
