The EPA has published fuel economy numbers for Honda's new subcompact crossover, which debuted a few months ago at the Los Angeles auto show. The 2016 Honda HR-V tops out at 28/35 mpg city/highway when paired with two-wheel drive and a CVT transmission.

Numbers drop to 27/32 mpg for models equipped with all-wheel drive, which is always paired with a CVT. HR-Vs equipped with the six-speed manual hit 25/34 mpg.

The Honda HR-V bests competitors like the Nissan Juke and the Chevrolet Trax in fuel economy, when all are paired with automatic transmissions. The Nissan Juke earns 28/32 mpg or 26/31 mpg with all-wheel drive, while the Trax comes in even lower at 26/34 mpg or 24/31 mpg with all-wheel drive. The Mazda CX-3, another competitor in the subcompact crossover segment, has not yet been rated.

Although the new HR-V shares a platform with the Fit, it is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine borrowed from the Civic. This engine allows the crossover to push out 138 hp and 127 lb-ft of torque, on par with the Trax. The HR-V comes to market this spring, but pricing has not yet been announced.
