As far as looks and ease of use goes the best is the Yakima FullBack which comes in both 2-bike # Y02634 and 3-bike # Y02633 versions. You only have 4 straps to install on your 2019 Honda HR-V, the adjustments are very easy to make, and since the cradles have a lower profile it is much easier to load a bike on this.

With that being said, since your 2019 Honda HR-V has a larger spoiler at the top of the hatch any trunk mount rack like the Yakima FullBack will put pressure on that spoiler and it could eventually cause damage.

If you plan on using the bike rack quite frequently then I recommend the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top which also comes in a 2-bike # HRF2 and a 3-bike # HRF2-3 version. This rack is a little more clunky and it's not as easy to use, but Hollywood Racks designed this bike rack for vehicles with spoilers just like what you have. The top arms sit high enough that the straps won't make contact with the spoiler so that's one less thing you have to worry about.

I've attached some sample videos of both bike racks for you to check out. Don't forget that if any of your bikes lacks a horizontal top tube then you'll need to use an adapter bar like part # Y02531 so that it sits level and has good ground clearance.
