The line between SUV and compact crossover gets blurred just a little bit more with every genre-bending attempt at providing cargo space and off-road performance in an increasingly smaller package. For most manufacturers, their heart is in the right place but they just can’t quite combine the two ideas seamlessly. Some offer one or the other, but most end up just being smaller versions of the flagship SUV with a decrease in capability to match. Honda, however, knocked it out of the park with the HR-V. Offered at first overseas, the 2016 model year HR-V touched down in North America in 2015, creating an immediate impact in a growing segment. With smart style, the right size, and agile performance on the road or off, the HR-V truly embodies the idea behind the compact crossover. And, while well-equipped even at the base trim, there’s always ways you can make the HR-V a little more capable—especially when the weekend hits. Similar to how we looked at some of the essential accessories for the Honda CR-V, now we’re taking a look at the indispensable accessories available for the smaller in stature (but not performance) HR-V.
HR-V Sports Package
While the HR-V already offers a sleeker-than-most appearance, the addition of the HR-V Sports Package doesn’t hurt its look one bit. Front and rear skid plate garnishes bookend this cool crossover, while lower door garnishes tie it all together. The answer to the age old question of, “How do you make the Honda HR-V look even better?” Simple: add the HR-V Sports Package.
HR-V Illumination Package
Taking the aesthetic of your HR-V even further, you can add the Illumination Package and bring the party inside. Blue ambient lighting, alongside an illuminated door sill trim, adds a little more light to an already bright star.
HR-V Appearance Package
You want more style? Well, the Appearance Package should help satisfy. Front and rear lower bumper garnish trims, as well as a lower door garnish, ensure that no detail on your Honda HR-V is without a significant touch.
HR-V Cold Weather Package
Here at Alberta Honda, we know all about the long, cold winter season that seems to drag on longer every year. With the HR-V Cold Weather Package, you’ll breeze through winter without an issue thanks to an engine block heater, and auto battery charger/maintainer. Throw in a Remote Engine Starter, and you’ll step into a toasty warm vehicle every time.
HR-V Protection Package
Beyond the usual chill, winter brings another nasty element to the table (or rather, your vehicle): snow, slush, salt, and dirt. But thanks to the HR-V Protection Package’s combination of all-season floor mats, cargo trays, and chrome wheel locks, you’ll be able to manage the mess with ease.
This is just a taste of the available accessories for the Honda HR-V available at Edmonton’s Alberta Honda. To customize your HR-V, contact our Parts and Accessories Department for any inquiries on the parts above, or to learn about any other options.
