2016 Honda HR-V 1.8L models can be easily upgraded with enhanced performance and lower maintenance for several years with a reusable K&N replacement air filter, number 33-5037

In a stark contrast to the SUV marketplace of the early 2000’s, automakers are now developing smaller, lighter, and more efficient crossover utility vehicles (CUV) in an effort to improve fuel mileage. The Honda Motor Co., Ltd, a company already known for building fuel efficient vehicles, has released the 2016 Honda HR-V 1.8L as its smallest North American market CUV offering. The 2016 HR-V shares the same platform as the third-generation Honda Fit. The release of the 2016 HR-V allows the Honda Motor Co., Ltd to offer three size choices in CUV models; starting with the HR-V, the Civic-based CR-V, and finally the Accord-based Honda Pilot.

The 2016 Honda HR-V shares its 1.8L R18A1 inline-four cylinder engine with the 2006+ JDM & North American market Honda Civic. While 1.8L R18A1 SOHC VTEC engine provides reasonable performance, considering it is tuned to maximize miles per gallon, a K&N high-flow replacement air filter could help with better throttle response and quicker acceleration. A K&N high-flow replacement air filter is different from the factory or standard replacement air filter in that K&N uses cotton gauze filter media woven to exacting specifications. Cotton, by nature, is more breathable than the paper or sometimes foam media used in most automotive air filters.
