Do you prefer a vehicle with streamlined features, or are you more of a maximalist when it comes to technology, comfort, and convenience? Whichever one you are, there’s a vehicle you’re guaranteed to appreciate and enjoy––the Honda HR-V. When you take a look at this model, you’ll notice that there are three distinct trim levels and that they all serve a purpose for a specific type of driver. But how do you know which trim you want? Which one will work best for you? Questions like these are common among drivers looking for a Honda HR-V for sale, which is why we’ve put together this trim guide.

In it, you’ll find answers to the most frequently asked questions about trim levels in general, as well as answers regarding the Honda HR-V’s specific trim levels. Choosing the right trim ensures that you enjoy your driving experience every time you get behind the wheel, no matter where you’re going or what you’re doing. It’s important to take this into consideration when purchasing a vehicle so that you aren’t surprised or disappointed when a feature you wanted is not included in the trim you are looking at.

What Are Trim Levels?

A trim is a pre-packaged grouping of features geared toward a specific driver. A sporty trim level, for instance, might include a sport driving mode, a spoiler, or a more powerful engine. If you’re looking for something plain and simple, you might not get a spoiler, but you might get a more efficient engine and a stripped-down interior that you can outfit with things you actually want. It’s always a good idea to talk to a sales associate regarding the specifics of a trim level before you decide which vehicle you’re interested in purchasing, just to make sure you’re getting all the stuff you need without adding anything you don’t want.

When you are on the hunt for a new vehicle, a sales associate may ask which features are most important to you––are you interested in a large infotainment center, or do you care more about which safety features are included in each trim level? Are you looking for a basic set of features, or do you want something a little more luxurious or sporty? Trim levels are built around a specific type of driver, which means that depending on what you want out of your car, there’s a trim that works and some trim levels that may not work as well for you.

2024 Honda HR-V Trim Levels

The 2024 Honda HR-V offers three trim levels to buyers: the LX, Sport, and EX-L, in order from lowest to highest trim level. The LX offers plenty of features for the average driver, while the Sport trim level is geared toward those who enjoy a little more speed and excitement. The EX-L, of course, is the most luxurious trim level for those who think of their vehicle as a safe haven from the world outside. Curious about what each one includes? Here’s a breakdown of some of the key features included in each:

The LX trim is equipped with a highly efficient engine, netting you an EPA-estimated 26 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway, making this trim level a perfect vehicle for those who find themselves spending hours on the road each day or for those who enjoy taking road trips whenever possible.[a] The HR-V’s basic tech setup is compatible with both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and the Honda Sensing suite includes features like Adaptive Cruise Control, a Lane Keeping Assist System, and a Collision Mitigation Braking System.

The Sport trim comes with larger 18-inch wheels, black exterior details, a chrome exhaust finisher, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, all of which serve to make the Honda HR-V not only look like a sportier version of the base trim but act like a sportier version as well. You’ll also enjoy Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock, which will lock up your vehicle when you leave and unlock it again when you’re ready to get back inside, without you having to push any buttons or turn any keys. A truly fun trim level for those with a need for speed.

The final trim level, the EX-L, is built for a comfortable, serene driving experience. You will be treated to leather-trimmed seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat to ensure that you are completely comfortable. A one-touch power moonroof is also included, which means you can enjoy the outdoors while driving. A larger nine-inch touchscreen infotainment center provides you with plenty of entertainment, news, and driving information, and you can charge your phone with the wireless phone charger while you listen to your favorite music in crystal clear tones from the eight-speaker audio system.

How Do I Know Which Trim Level Is Best for Me?

As you think about what you want out of your Honda HR-V, you can glance over the specs of each trim level and figure out which ones don’t work for you. You may be eying the flashy Sport trim. You might be looking for a less expensive option and decide to go with the base LX trim. Or, you may go all out with the EX-L because you deserve something luxurious. But how do you know which trim level is best for you? It all comes down to a few key questions regarding finances, purpose, and desires. What’s your budget? Why are you looking for a new car? What do you want out of it?

Your budget may be the biggest factor in deciding which trim level to go with, but other considerations do play an important part. If you’re looking for a new vehicle because you need a reliable commuter, you may want to make sure that the new car has navigation, traffic updates, or additional safety features. If you’re interested in purchasing a vehicle because you’ve recently moved, gotten a raise, or are looking for something more efficient, you may want to take a look at a higher trim level to see which luxurious features you’d like to include. All of this will help you narrow down your choice to just one or two trim levels, making the purchase less stressful and inspiring confidence in your choice.
