Spacious, comfortable seats
Generous cargo capacity
Upscale cabin

Cons
Less athletic than rivals
Not available with AWD
High base price

The most significant change for the 2018 Niro is the addition of lane keeping assist, replacing the previous lane departure warning system. It's included in the Advanced Technology package available on LX and EX trims, and it's standard on the top Touring trim.

PROS
Impressive fuel economy from the base trim model
One of the more affordable hybrids in the segment
Batteries are hidden under the rear seat and don't affect cargo space

CONS
Feature-laden Touring trim sacrifices fuel efficiency
Less cargo space than most rivals
Feels lazy when driving in the default Eco mode
All-wheel drive isn't offered despite crossover styling

The 2018 Honda HR-V blends great rear-seat flexibility and gas mileage, but it’s slow.

Pros
Makes the most of its size
Lots of standard equipment
Great gas mileage
Shift it yourself, if you like
Composed, absorbent ride

Cons
Thin acceleration
Crash-test scores are mixed
Doesn’t offer latest safety tech
Road manners: meh

The 2018 Honda HR-V ranked #3 in Subcompact SUVs. Currently the Honda HR-V has a score of 8.2 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 31 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Adult-friendly back seat
Versatile cargo area

Cons
Awkward available touch screen
Firm front seat cushions
Slow to reach highway speeds

By: 
usnews.com

Honda’s mini ute switches to 2018 with a new paint color—Aegean Blue Metallic—and a new dark-colored wheel design on EX and EX-L trims. Other than that, the HR-V sees no other changes, mechanical or otherwise.

Pros
Fuel-efficient powertrain,
cargo-hauling leader,
handsome styling.

Cons
Lackluster acceleration,
frustrating infotainment system,
short on small-item storage.
