All 2017 HR-V trim levels come standard with a front-wheel drive configuration. This makes them more fuel efficient from the get go, however, if you are looking for the peace of mind that all-wheel drive can provide, then the option is there on all three trim levels.

The Honda HR-V has three trim levels for 2017. The base model is the LX, and from there it goes up with the EX, and the EX-L Navi. Not only do all models have all-wheel drive available, but they also all come with 17-inch alloy wheels standard. The EX-L Navi even has standard roof rails so you can load up the top.

When it comes to the transmission of the HR-V, you do have some options. On the LX and the EX trims, there is actually a 6-speed manual transmission that comes standard. This will allow you to feel the full thrill of driving a compact crossover and being in complete control of the engine’s relationship to the wheels.

Now if you really want the efficiency and a smooth ride, then the CVT or continuously variable transmission, is the one you want. This transmission comes standard on the EX-L Navi, and is the only transmission option on that particular trim level. Both the LX and the EX, which come with standard 6-speed manuals transmissions, can also be equipped with a CVT as an option.

Is there a manual HR-V with AWD?

Though you can get the LX and the EX with manual transmissions, and you can also get both trims with all-wheel drive, you cannot get them with both manual transmissions and all-wheel drive. Instead, you can only get all-wheel drive when you opt for the CVT for your transmission.
