I haven't even tried looking, but I'm going to assume my 2017 SE does not have HD radio.
 

How can one tell if one has such?

From the owner's manual:
 

DIGITAL RADIO
Note: HD Radio broadcasts are not available in all markets. HD Radio technology is the digital evolution of analog AM/FM radio. Your system has a special receiver that allows it to receive digital broadcasts (where available) in addition to the analog broadcasts, it already receives.

So it says.  I've never paid attention...

HD radio is a bust. It's technology is proprietary and stations are not allowed to broadcast with sufficient power. Coverage is very spotty. I could not get mobile coverage 7 miles from the transmitter.

I've had pretty good luck with HD radio.  The primary station I listen too has it and their transmitter is a good 30 miles away.  It will occassionaly flicker in and out but only in an area where I would be concerned about losing the station entirely (in a drive through, my garage...)
