Honda HRV towing

I was reminded that Honda HRV with manual transmission can be towed 4 down.
Does anyone have experience with towing and setting up the car for towing?
Thanks

There is no such animal. The Honda CR-V manual transmission is extremely hard to find, but not impossible.

Sorry Grey Ghost I, there is a Honda HR-V.

Can't answer the OP's question, but wanted to clarify the vehicle does exist.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

According to the HR-V Owner Manual, pages 320-322, the HR-V with a manual transmission can be flat towed and gives step-by-step instructions on how to put the car into "neutral tow mode".

Have no experience in doing this however.

And, the HR-V models LX and EX do indeed have a manual transmission.

Thank you all. We will be checking the HRV and the CRV 2014 or older to see how they compare for size etc.

Welcome dkerst. It's only been out one year, so all of them.

2016 is the only year I know of, but I'm sure 2017's are out soon.
