HR-V Honda (not CR-V) opinions?
« on: January 30, 2018, 01:27:04 PM »
Has anyone towed a Honda HR-V? Wondering your opinions on how well it tows, any issues with towing? We'll be towing it behind a Tiffin Open Road Allegro gasser. Thanks!

Is it towable. I've heard that Hondas newer than 2014 are not towable. Verify it for yourself by reading the owner's manual.

We looked at the HRV and it is not 4 down towable....you can get a fwd and use a tow dolly . Went with a jeep Cherokee.

We've checked the Honda HR-V owner's manual and confirmed it says that manual transmission is flat towable. (It's the CR-V that's not flat towable after 2014) Wondering if anyone has actually been flat towing an HR-V (not CR-V) and your experience with it? Thanks!

We bought an HR-V.  2 wheel drive so we can put it onto a dolly.  ANY front wheel drive has to be on a dolly.  Can't tow a 4 wheel drive.  Our other car is a GM Tracker, standard shift, 2003, which we can tow on a tow bar.
