2020 Honda HR-V Interior

2020 Honda HR-V Interior Review


Interior: 6.9

The 2020 Honda HR-V has a generally upscale interior, though a few areas are subpar for a Honda. Passenger space is good, but front legroom and rear headroom can be tight. Cargo space is excellent for the class. Some infotainment features may require a learning curve.

  • "Its classy, well-made interior may not set hearts racing, but the HR-V's cabin appears durable enough to stand the test of time." -- Car and Driver
  • "The interior doesn't change all that much, and it's still a pleasant place to hang out. The Sport trim adds a black headliner and contrasting stitching on the cushy cloth seats, and I like the way both additions mix with the HR-V's interior design." -- CNET (2019)
  • "Although the interior looks nice, some of the trim pieces and the functionality of a few controls aren't up to Honda's usual high standards." -- Edmunds (2018)


The Honda HR-V seats five people. Optional features include leather upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob.

The front seats could be more comfortable, and you have to jump all the way to the trop trim to get power seat adjustments. Taller drivers and front passengers will want more legroom. The rear seat has ample legroom for adults to stretch out, but headroom is a little tight for tall riders.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats. The middle seat can borrow lower anchors from each side. The lower anchors are set deeply in the seats, and other hardware can be confused for the tether anchors. Furthermore, the middle-seat tether anchor is hard to find.

  • "Outward visibility is good and passenger space is acceptable. … The spacious front seats will provide enough head- and legroom for all but the tallest passengers. The rear seat has tons of legroom, too, but headroom isn't as generous, thanks to the Honda's sloping roofline." -- Car and Driver
  • "Driver-seat legroom was a bit tight for long legs, but rear leg- and kneeroom were surprisingly good for the HR-V’s modest size." -- Truck Trend (2019)
  • "The front seats are narrow and firmly cushioned. Lumbar support is not adjustable. Taller folks might take issue with the lack of adjustability and poor legroom. The door and center armrests have good padding, though, and the rear seats are firm but comfy. … The space for rear passengers is excellent. Average-size adults can actually fit back there, which can't be said for a lot of subcompact crossovers." -- Edmunds (2018)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2020 HR-V include a 5-inch audio display, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a USB port, and a four-speaker stereo. A 7-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is optional.

The standard audio interface is very simple, but the optional touch screen earns mixed reviews. Most of its controls are buried within confusing menus, and some of the graphics are underwhelming. A physical volume knob helps usability, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay provide a better way to interact with the system.

Other optional features include an additional USB port, satellite radio, HD Radio, a six-speaker stereo, navigation, remote start, a moonroof, proximity keyless entry, automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a universal garage door opener.

Optional advanced safety features include the LaneWatch blind spot camera, automatic high-beam headlights, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, and road departure mitigation.

  • "The base LX keeps its easy-to-use climate-control system, while all others still employ a touch-based setup that can sometimes be annoying to operate while the vehicle is in motion." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "All of the HR-V's central controls are easily within the driver's reach, and the steering wheel controls feel substantial and high-quality. But the lack of physical infotainment and climate control buttons and knobs is a huge minus. … The touchscreen user interface looks nice even with its low-rent nav graphics. It's frustrating to use, though, because of the imprecise virtual buttons and a confounding menu structure." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "While Honda still fits a dinky little screen in the base HR-V, higher trim levels receive a revised 7-inch Display Audio infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It feels more responsive than it has in the past, but it's still the old version of Honda's system, not running the flashy new software I've experienced in other updated models" -- CNET (2019)


The Honda HR-V has 24.3 cubic feet of cargo space behind its second row and 58.8 cubic feet with the back row folded down. Those values are excellent for a subcompact SUV. A 60/40-split-folding rear seat and Honda's Magic Seat are standard.

  • "With the rear seats stowed, we managed to fit 22 of our carry-on suitcases inside—more than some larger crossovers can manage." -- Car and Driver
  • "The real magic in the second row comes from Honda's split-folding rear seats. While my tester's optional all-wheel drive does eat into cargo capacity by a small bit, it still has 57.6 cubic feet of space with the second row folded flat, putting it at the top of its segment." -- CNET (2019)
  • "With its Magic Seat flip-up rear seat, the HR-V can hold taller items, like a potted plant or lamp, that need to stand upright. In fact, with nearly 60 cubic feet of cargo volume, the H-RV is one of the most accommodating subcompacts you can buy." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
