Preview The 2023 Honda HR-V At Chatham Honda

The Honda HR-V getting a redesign for the 2023 model year is an understatement since this model will be ditching the small Honda Fit hatchback platform to now be on the same platform as the beloved Civic. With this platform transition, the 2023 HR-V should benefit from having various enhancements to its exterior, interior, engine performance, and other aspects. At Chatham Honda, we are very excited for the 2023 HR-V to arrive in our showroom to provide our customers with in-depth walkthroughs of all its new changes. Customers can also keep up with all of the new updates, and we invite you to stop by our showroom once this model is available in our new inventory to take it out for a test drive on the roads of Chatham, Ontario.

New Interior Design

The 2023 HR-V is an SUV designed to fit many customers' active lifestyles, offering Honda's new interior styling approach that includes more premium finishes and technology in the cabin. Thanks to now being on the Civic platform, you can expect the new 2023 HR-V to suit your daily commute better. It will have the latest technology offerings, a larger back seat for more comfort, and a larger cargo area to accommodate your belongings. It's predicted that the HR-V interior will be more modern with inspiration from the new Civic, which could eliminate the option for the second-row Magic Seat from the previous model year.

Engine & Performance

Since the 2023 HR-V will be sharing the Civic platform, it might also mean that it will get similar engine offerings. Although not confirmed, the new HR-V might have the option for either the 2.0-litre four-cylinder or the 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. However, this model could feature both engines, but their output figures might be modified to fit their model. Most likely, a CVT will deliver power to the front-wheel-drive drivetrain of the new HR-V, but Honda may include an option for an all-wheel-drive system to cater to Canada's harsh winter driving conditions. What's known so far is that this Honda SUV will feature a new independent rear suspension that will surely improve the handling characteristics of the new HR-V.

New Exterior Design

The new design of the 2023 HR-V is nothing short of stunning and remarkable, offering a completely new appearance that maintains a few elements of the previous design. The second generation of the HR-V now has a low horizontal beltline, extended hood, a larger grille, wider overall stance, and a sleek roofline, which promote its sporty appeal. You can expect its new platform to make it a bit larger to accommodate more of your needs during weekend adventures while retaining a slim figure to get through city driving easily.

Trim Levels

The 2023 HR-V trim levels are not yet announced, but multiple trims from the 2022 model year may make their way to the new lineup. You can learn more about the available trims for the new HR-V once Honda releases more information, or you can visit our dealership once this model is released to get a closer look at its trim levels firsthand.

HR-V Trims


2023 Honda HRV LX 2WD
The LX 2WD gives buyers all the essential features they expect from a modern vehicle. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine delivers 138 lb-ft of torque and 158 horsepower. It also includes a continuously variable transmission to ensure a smooth transition from one gear to the next. The 7.0-inch display touchscreen is easy to use and comes with integrated Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With the heated front seats and Honda Sensing safety technology, the LX 2WD helps keep you comfortable and safe on the roads.


2023 Honda HRV LX AWD CVT
The LX AWD is a perfect choice for those considering a little more power and control. It has Honda's real-time all-wheel system for better handling and traction in any weather. The engine is the same as that of the LX 2WD, but the performance is enhanced with the more powerful AWD system that helps the HR-V maintain stability on slippery roads. The remote engine start is also a great feature, allowing you to start your car from the convenience of your home.


2023 Honda CRV EX-L Navi AWD CVT
The EX-L Navi AWD CVT trim comes with everything the LX AWD offers and several extras. The 9.0-inch colour touchscreen display is larger and clearer than the 7-inch one in the LX AWD, and eight speakers provide better sound quality. It also has a navigation system, so you can easily find your way around town. The leather-trimmed surfaces in the cabin ensure comfort no matter the weather. The real-time AWD system gives enhanced traction and better control on the road, and fog lights improve visibility in low-light conditions. A wireless phone charger is also included in the EX-L Navi AWD trim.


2023 Honda HRV Sport AWD CVT
The Sport AWD is built for those who want an athletic look and feel. The 17-inch alloy wheels, sport grille, and front fascia combine to give the HR-V a sporty edge that will turn heads. The engine is the same as in the previous trims, but the chrome exhaust finishers give it an extra power boost. It also includes mirror-integrated indicators to help you stay visible on the road. The power moonroof is a great touch, allowing you to enjoy fresh air during your drive. The heated side mirrors ensure a clear view of your surroundings in any weather. With the windows auto-up or down feature, you can enjoy the convenience of one-touch operation.
