With the recent arrival of the 2019 Honda HR-V to the showroom floor here at Davenport Honda in Rocky Mount, NC we are excited to tell you all about it. The most common and frequent question we receive from Honda customers is one wondering what the differences are from the previous year’s model and the 2019 Honda HR-V has plenty of improvements over its 2018 predecessor. First and foremost you will find two extra trim levels to choose from, the Sport and the Touring, also Honda has simplified the 2018 HR-V EX-L Navi trim level to just the EX-L for the 2019 model year. You can find out all of the similarities and differences between the 2019 and 2018 Honda HR-V below and you can get behind the wheel of the Honda HR-V at Davenport Honda today.

All trim levels of the 2019 and 2018 Honda HR-V get equipped with a 1.8L In-Line 4-Cylinder engine that delivers 131 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque.
