If we could choose a slogan for the all-new 2018 Honda HR-V, it would be "smaller is better" - because when it comes to the subcompact-crossover SUV market, nothing could be farther from the truth. 
B.C. drivers hail the HR-V for its efficient design, which is smaller than its bigger sibling, the Honda CR-V. It's a superb option for new car shoppers in search of a vehicle with a smart interior, increased ground clearance and all-weather capability.
The 2018 HR-V LX is a base model trim level, but that doesn't mean it is lacking when it comes to quality, features and performance. It's powered by a fuel-efficient 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine, which outputs 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or CVT automatic, and all models are equipped with front-wheel drive (all-wheel drive is optional with automatic transmission). 
Inside, the HR-V's interior features quality materials throughout and a smart layout, which includes a front-passenger seat that can be folded back to accommodate longer items, like surfboards or lumber. Standard features include a rearview camera, cruise control and Honda's Bluetooth HandsFreeLink system. There's also a four-speaker/160-watt AM/FM/CD system with USB/auxiliary inputs and 5-inch colour display. For a base model, the HR-V LX is certainly well-equipped.
