Honda's 2016 HR-V front-wheel-drive compact SUV should deliver 28 miles per gallon in city driving and 35 mpg on the highway, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The HR-V's combined rating came in at 31 mpg.

The same vehicle when offered with a manual transmission should deliver 25/34/28 mpg in city, highway, and combined cycles respectively.

The HR-V, which was first seen at the 2014 New York International Auto Show, will offer a 1.8L direct-injected four-cylinder paired with a CVT or manual transmission.

Honda is also offering an all-wheel drive HR-V model rated by the EPA at 27 mog city, 32 mpg highway, and 29 mpg combined. The all-wheel-drive model is only available with a CVT.
