How reliable is the 2021 HR-V?

On a positive note, the 2021 Honda HR-V is incredibly reliable. It has a predicted reliability rating of five out of five from Consumer Reports. So, while safety is a slight concern, at least you may not have significant mechanic issues to worry about. 

The reliability rating is based on how well vehicles have performed in the past. Consumer Reports sends a survey out to readers with 17 potential trouble spots. This allows vehicle owners to report on any issues they may have faced from the engine, brakes, power equipment, electrical system, and more. 

The current generation HR-V came out in 2016. Most of the issues purported on previous models are from 2017. The 2017 Honda HR-V struggled with transmission issues, fuel system problems, suspension problems, and brake trouble. But newer HR-V models don’t have these problems listed, meaning they could have been corrected.

Tested vehicle: 2019 Honda HR-V LX 4-door 4wd

The Honda HR-V was introduced in the 2016 model year. Beginning with the 2019 model year, the front door hinge pillars and front-end structure were reinforced to improve occupant protection in both small overlap and moderate overlap frontal crashes. Moderate overlap frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Honda as part of frontal crash test verification.
