Rick Case Honda in Davie, your new and used car Davie Honda dealership near Ft. Lauderdale, is excited to present the all-new 2016 HR-V Crossover SUV. Once again, Honda’s designers have the competition racing to their drawing boards in this fiercely contested small SUV sub-market with a new entry on the scene that’s big on features and versatility.
The Best Of Both Worlds
Just what makes a sport utility vehicle a “crossover?” Crossover SUVs like the all-new 2016 HR-V from Rick Case Honda combine the flexibility, versatility, and practically of an SUV with the confident, predictable road manners and performance of a four-door sedan. You get all the benefits of an SUV without the harsh “truck-like” ride you might find in larger SUVs that are based on a pickup’s chassis and suspension. Plus, you’ll also get great “car-like” fuel economy. Owning a new 2016 Honda HR-V gives you the best of both worlds. Perhaps that’s why this “small ute” is one of the auto industry’s hottest selling categories.
Sleek New Contemporary Design
Step back and get a perspective on the new HR-V. What you see is a smartly styled SUV with expressive lines and curves in all the right places. Take a look at the crease that sweeps up from the front door panel to the small “C” pillar. This design feature gives the sense of fluid forward motion. Notice the two character creases on the hood that flow into the front grille. Expressive wheel arches set off the available 17-inch sport alloy wheels. Large projector beam headlights and a single chrome bar with the Honda “H” logo bisect the front grille separating the hood from the lower fascia. Walk around to the rear of the HR-V and you’ll see how the integrated spoiler, wedge-shaped, energy-saving LED taillights, and wide rear glass all work together to give the new HR-V a sporty, contemporary flair.
Roomy & Refined Interior
With the “smart entry” remote key fob in your pocket, all you have to do is walk up to the HR-V and unlock the doors without using a key. Once inside, settle into the firmly bolstered yet comfortable driver’s seat. Honda designers are at the top of their game when it comes to designing interiors that not only look good but are intuitive and driver-friendly. For instance, you’ll notice that the heating and air conditioning controls tilt at an angle toward the driver. The instrument cluster features three large analog dials that are simple and classic in their design, function, and placement. Run your hand along the dash and the seats. Grab the available leather, three-spoke sports steering wheel. You’re pleasantly surprised at how the combination of premium materials and intuitive design works together to create a cabin of unexpected refinement where everything just feels right.
Of course, a key benefit of any SUV is versatility. After all, you have lots of passengers and gear to haul when you are heading up the coast, going across town to the mall, or taking that weekend getaway to the Keys. One of the things we love about the new 2016 HR-V is the many ways you can configure it to suit your needs. One of the innovative features of the HR-V is its unique 2nd-row “Magic Seat®.” We admit, this is a pretty cool idea. Fold the Magic Seat flat with the pull of a lever and access up to 100 cubic feet of space. Use “Long Mode” to carry those long, awkward items by folding the front passenger seat and rear seats flat. You can carry items up to 8 ft. in length this way. Or say you have something that’s tall, like a large plant for instance. The bottom of the rear Magic Seat flips up to give you nearly four feet of vertical space.
The Latest In High-Tech
Now let’s talk some tech. Most everyone is connected to one another and their technology more than ever before. So it’s not surprising that one of the major questions people ask about most when buying a new car in Ft. Lauderdale is how “tech-savvy” is the vehicle they are considering to purchase. The new 2016 HR-V has all the high-tech “bells and whistles” you could ask for, and more. A large 7-inch touchscreen display positioned above the center stack is your high-tech command center. Use the display to control a variety of functions that let you communicate, connect, navigate, and entertain.
Plug your compatible device into the handy USB audio interface and access your music playlists. But that’s just the beginning. The available HondaLink® is Honda’s exclusive app that you download to your compatible smartphone and use to call up your music, listen to podcasts, get your text messages, and more. You’ll also enjoy the convenience of Bluetooth® hands-free calling and listening to Pandora®, SiriusXM™ Radio, and HDRadio® on select models through the available 180-watt, 6-speaker audio system. And the standard rear backup camera makes parking a breeze.
You’ll find driving the new HR-V to be a fun experience. The HR-V’s car-like road manners dial in just the right amount of sport-inspired confidence that puts you in control. You’ll have plenty of power to pass or accelerate thanks to the HR-V’s lively 141-hp, 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that mates to either a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission. Step up to All-Wheel Drive and experience an extra dimension of handling, with firm steering and flat cornering. And you’ll get excellent fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 28 mpg city/35-mpg highway.
Important Safety Features
One of the most important aspects of any vehicle is safety. We can all agree that our roadways are becoming more dangerous each year. Just driving across I-75 or down the heavily traveled I-95 will convince you that driving a car that offers the best safety features isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity.
That’s why Honda “over-engineered” the new 2016 HR-V with an exceptional arsenal of the latest in advanced safety features bundled together in something they call “Honda Sensing™.” This robust and full-featured suite of active driver-assist technologies includes Lane Departure Warning, Collision Mitigation Braking System, and Forward Collision Warning. Other key safety components include a tire pressure monitoring system, daytime running lights, ACE™ body structure designed to distribute frontal crash energy more evenly, dual-stage, multiple threshold front airbags, Vehicle Stability Assist™ with traction control, and anti-lock brakes. These are just some of the reasons why the new HR-V earns top safety scores from major government safety rating organizations.
