Honda HR-V Miles Per Gallon: Drivetrain

2018 Honda HR-V DrivetrainThe biggest differentiator in the Honda HR-V miles per gallon capabilities is the drivetrain you choose to operate with. This SUV comes standard with front-wheel drive (FWD), which will get you the most bang for your buck when considering fuel economy. With this drivetrain, you manage an EPA-estimated 28 MPG city and 34 MPG highway.1

However, many drivers in our area prefer all-wheel drive (AWD) when taking on rugged mountain terrain or making their way across snow-covered streets. If that's the case, the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System™ is a good choice, helping you reach an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 27 MPG city and 31 MPG highway.1

This system has many benefits as it monitors your conditions to readjust torque among all four wheels as necessary. While this can help you improve your grip when accelerating on wet roads, it also backs off when cruising at highway speeds, allowing you to operate in a more fuel-saving FWD mode.

Honda HR-V Engine Specs

The first thing to consider when looking at the Honda HR-V miles per gallon capabilities is what's hard at work under the hood. With the HR-V, you'll have the benefit of a 1.8L I-4 engine that generates 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque.

This engine works to keep your efficiency high by injecting fuel in time with each cylinder's intake stroke, allowing for precisely synchronized fuel delivery.

It's paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT). This is a kind of automatic transmission without specific gears, so it can provide almost infinite transitions as necessary between its lowest and highest points to keep you operating as optimally and efficiently as possible.

HR-V Miles Per Gallon Monitors

The Eco Assist™ System also keeps you informed of your SUV's efficiency, so that you can develop a more fuel-efficient driving style. Other information systems you can use include the average fuel economy indicators that tell you your average fuel economy for an entire trip, and the instant fuel economy indicator, which indicates your Honda HR-V miles per gallon ratings at the current moment.
