Advantages and Benefits of 2017 Honda HR-V
The HR-V offers incredible value with its wide array of premium features. This includes 17-inch alloy wheels, push-button electric parking brake with Automatic Brake Hold, Pandora radio and Bluetooth HandsFreeLink, as well as standard all-wheel-drive. Owners of the 2017 HR-V also benefit from its comprehensive 3-year/36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty and a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain limited warranty. Additional benefits of ownership include Honda Roadside Assistance, which provides free 24-hour roadside assistance during the 3-year/36,000-mile new vehicle limited warranty term.
Another strength of the HR-V is its versatility. This is due in part to its ingenious 2nd-Row Magic Seat. It's a 60/40 (right/left) split seat, which can be configured for four different modes — Utility, Tall, Long and Refresh — with the ability to adapt instantly to a wide variety of circumstances and needs. The Magic Seat can easily be folded into any of its positions with levers accessible from the rear of the car or the rear doors. With Utility Mode, both the 2nd-row seats are folded completely down, creating maximum cargo capacity — a cavernous 52.7 cubic feet. Tall Mode enables you to store tall items that need to remain upright, such as a large plant or tall crate. Long Mode is great for storing long items such as lumber, a stepladder or even recreational items such as surfboards or musical instruments. And when you need to take a break from your travels, Refresh Mode provides a comfortable, feet-up place for two people to relax.
