28 City / 34 Highway / 30 Combined

The Honda HR-V is a taller and more utilitarian alternative to the subcompact Fit hatchback upon which it’s based. Its second-row "magic seat" that can split-fold flat or tumble forward for added cargo room. A peppy 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine channels its power to the pavement via a continuously variable transmission. The HR-V gets 27 mpg city and 31 highway with all-wheel drive.
