2015 Honda HR-VHere at Commonwealth Honda, we feel fortunate to offer our customers what we consider to be some of the best vehicles in the industry. Innovative and exciting, there is something in our lineup for everyone. Each vehicle has a special place in our hearts, and when we see them get the recognition they deserve, we get a little excited.

Yesterday, we learned that Green Car Journal has included the HR-V among the finalists for their Green SUV of the Year awards. The publication, which has been around for more than 20 years, aims to draw attention to the intersection of automobiles and the environment. With their “of the Year” awards, they seek to recognize the vehicles that offer the best environmental performance for the model year. With its top fuel economy rating, and designation as an Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (LEV2 ULEV) the HR-V is a prime candidate.

“With class-leading fuel economy ratings and interior space, the Honda HR-V compact crossover is a great choice to replace larger, less fuel-efficient vehicles,” said Jeff Conrad, Honda Division senior vice president and general manager. “The HR-V also fulfills the Honda brand’s promise to deliver both fun-to-drive enjoyment with outstanding fuel efficiency.”

The winners will be announced at the Washington Auto Show, January 21, 2016.
