Honda HR-V Engine Oil Finder

In 1998 the Honda HR-V was obviously ahead of its time. The three letters stand for "High Rider Vehicle" in Japan, which sums up the concept: The first HR-V looked a bit like a raised compact car. Today you would probably just call it an SUV. In Germany, the HR-V was not a real success, as early as 2005 Honda discontinued the model in Germany. In 2006, all production ended, and the manufacturer replaced the model with the Crossroad 2.

Unsurprisingly, the Honda HR-V returned ten years later with a second generation. The car market had changed, models like the HR-V, which laid the foundation for the SUV boom, were suddenly in demand. Accordingly, the new Honda presented itself in its new edition as a thoroughbred SUV, somewhere between the small car and compact class.

The third generation, which Honda presented in February 2021, does some things differently again. With a length of 4.34 meters, the HR-V has finally arrived in the compact class. The second big change: For the first time, the SUV is available with a hybrid drive – and it is the only engine. In Japan, Honda also offers the HR-V as an electric car, but not in Europe at the moment.

With a length of 4.34 meters and a width of 1.79 meters, the Honda HR-V is slightly larger than a VW Golf, but offers all the advantages of an SUV . The increased ground clearance makes it easier to get in and the overview of the traffic is improved. Inside, there's more headroom and boot space is larger than in comparable compact models. In addition, there is improved traction for towing trailers.

Motor oil is a vital part of your Honda HR-V's engine. It provides the much needed lubrication to many of the internal parts of an engine. One of its key job is to prevent wear and tear on the moving parts and helps keep the engine running smoothly. Without oil, the engine would cease up almost immediately.

Regularly checking and changing your Honda HR-V engine oil is really important. Every time you start and run your car, very fine by-products from the combustion in the engine will be collected in the engine oil. This is one of the reasons why over time the oil goes black. If these contaminants build up too much and exceed the capacity of the oil it can have a negative impact on your car’s overall efficiency and actually effect its performance as it creates sludge and increased wear in the engine block.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your Honda HR-V? Whether you are topping up your Honda HR-V oil or doing a full change of your Honda HR-V's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.
