Tackle Any Weather in the Versatile and Multi Talented 2024 Honda HR-V

Most West New York residents know that you have to live in the region to truly understand the unpredictable weather. From blizzards to heat waves, we get it all––and sometimes with little notice––so choosing a vehicle that can tackle whatever Mother Nature throws at us is critical. Enter the 2024 Honda HR-V. As your Honda dealer in West New York, NJ, we’re seeing this subcompact crossover fly off our lot at a record pace, which is no surprise since the HR-V is ideal for our Northern climate.

Offered in three trims and featuring available Real Time All-Wheel Drive (AWD) and a suite of standard driver-assist systems, the 2024 Honda HR-V comes locked and loaded to tackle snow, ice, and rain safely and capably while you and your passengers ride comfortably in the spacious cabin and listen to your favorite Spotify playlist. If you love gas stations, don’t buy the 2024 Honda HR-V. With EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of up to 26 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway, you’ll drive right by the pump and get where you need to go faster.[a]

The HR-V’s expansive cabin and cargo space is a key benefit for owners. With a standard 158 hp engine, it has plenty of power to accelerate to highway speeds, and its subcompact size means the HR-V stays nimble in congested urban areas. Fresh off a complete redesign last year, the 2024 Honda HR-V is poised to remain an enticing option this model year. For West New York locals, it’s an ideal choice for optimal reliability and confidence, no matter the weather.

Next-Gen Driver-Assist Systems Keep You Out of Harm’s Way

Honda wrote the playbook on automotive safety, so it’s no surprise that the Japanese automaker has perfected the latest driver-assist technologies and harnessed their effectiveness to level up occupant safety. The 2024 HR-V includes the comprehensive Honda Sensing suite, with nine standard driver-assist features that work together to create a bubble of protection around the vehicle.

The suite includes a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Forward Collision Warning, a Road Departure Mitigation System, and Lane Departure Warning. These four systems work together and use cameras and radar to alert drivers to potential hazards. The Collision Mitigation Braking System can sense when a collision is imminent and apply emergency braking to minimize the severity of a crash or help avoid one altogether. Lane Departure Warning senses when the vehicle is drifting out of its intended lane of travel and sends gentle steering nudges to get the driver refocused on the road ahead.

Honda’s engineers thought beyond safety with its suite of driver-assist technology, adding tools like the Traffic Sign Recognition System, which can read speed limit signs and aid the driver with speed adjustments if necessary. The standard Auto High-Beam Headlights automate switching between low and high-beam settings, minimizing driver fatigue and optimizing focus during nighttime driving. LED headlights, taillights, and daytime running lights are also standard across the 2024 HR-V trim range, keeping you visible when the days grow shorter in the winter.

Choose the top-of-the-line EX-L trim and say goodbye to the dreaded “bumper kiss” during tricky parking maneuvers. This trim includes standard front and rear parking sensors that assist you when you’re pulling in and out of parking spaces. As you creep closer to an object, the system emits a series of audible beeps that increase in frequency, then shifts to a continuous tone that tells you you’re about to make contact. Low Speed Braking Control is also standard in the EX-L. Similar to the Collision Mitigation Braking System, this system helps you avoid a collision at speeds below four mph.

Comfort and Convenience Enhance the Ride

If you commute to work outside of West New York or log hours of driving time hauling the kids to and from their activities, you’ll appreciate the HR-V’s comfortable cabin and plethora of standard and available convenience features. The 2024 HR-V offers remote entry, push-button start, and a 60/40 split second-row seat. The Sport and EX-L trims include cozy heated front seats that take the chill out of those cold New Jersey winter mornings, and the EX-L adds dual-zone automatic climate control and mood-enhancing ambient LED cabin lighting.

The list of creature comforts found on the high-end EX-L trim includes a standard one-touch power moonroof, a power driver’s seat, leather seating, and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. All three trims include standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, but you can leave the cords at home when you select the EX-L because Honda adds wireless connectivity and a wireless device charger. If concert-grade sound and premium entertainment technology are high on your list, the EX-L’s standard nine-inch infotainment touchscreen and standard eight-speaker audio system are both welcome upgrades.

The Sport trim includes a six-speaker audio system, while the base LX has a four-speaker version, and both trims are fitted with a slightly smaller seven-inch color infotainment touchscreen. As for connected services, you can activate and use HondaLink on all three trims. This provides remote start, remote door lock/unlock, and vehicle locator services, along with a Wi-Fi hotspot you can activate with an affordable data plan. The HondaLink suite of connected services also includes Amazon Alexa connectivity and shows vehicle data like fuel level and tire pressure.

Confident Performance and Handling in Any Weather

Did you know that the 2024 Honda HR-V is a good fit for first-time buyers and Gen Z buyers? Many West New York families visiting our Honda dealership consider the HR-V for the teens and college grads in their households. Though these drivers don’t always consider ride handling and overall performance––audio systems and tech tend to be more popular––if you’re the parent, performance in inclement weather conditions is likely high on your list.

The HR-V’s efficient 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that contributes to impressive fuel economy ratings and delivers smooth acceleration and easy-to-drive characteristics less experienced drivers will appreciate. The available all-wheel drive system adds another layer of confidence in weather where loss of traction is possible. Honda’s Real Time All-Wheel Drive with Intelligent Control System is a mouthful, but put simply, this electronically activated system senses road conditions and automatically sends power to the wheels with the most traction, limiting slippage in wet conditions.

The all-wheel drive system works even when the sun is shining by sending power to the back wheels when the driver accelerates or ascends an incline, which helps avoid traction loss and optimize fuel efficiency. As a 2023 Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) Top Safety Pick+, the Honda HR-V also offers parents peace of mind whenever the inexperienced drivers in their homes slide behind the wheel.[b] Altogether, the HR-V is a smart choice for families, commuters, and first-time drivers.
