Added: 24 October 2019
The new Honda HR-V is a compact SUV that’s been designed to make a big impact. Whether you’re in the driver's seat or not, this sporty set of wheels is sure to make an impression. Here is everything you need to know about the Honda HR-V.
Sports coupé styling
With its sports coupé styling, the Honda HR-V is one of the most stylish small SUVs around. Compact in size, its muscular frame brings a sporty edge to its aerodynamic crossover profile, giving it a distinctive look from every angle. The HR-V’s sleek exterior is available in a choice of eight different sophisticated colours, including Midnight Blue Beam Metallic, Milano Red and Platinum White Pearl, complemented by sporty alloy wheels and sculpted body lines that continue all the way around the rear of the vehicle.
On the inside, the Honda HR-V is both sporty and spacious - so much so that you may forget that you’re driving such a compact SUV. The HR-V has the feeling of a much larger car thanks to its clever proportions and large sunroof that brings the outside in. An extra level of comfort is provided by the HR-V’s Magic Seats, which can be configured in a number of ways to maximise capacity and versatility. They are designed to contour to your body, offering a high level of support and a much more comfortable journey.
An energetic drive
Despite its small size, the Honda HR-V is a car with energy and spirit. The new HR-V comes with a responsive 130PS 1.5 i-VTEC petrol engine that provides impressive performance with low running costs. Available with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 7-speed automatic CVT, the Honda HR-V benefits from a number of helpful features including an Idle Stop and ECON function to make your drive as efficient and economical as possible. True to the HR-V’s sporty nature, you’ll also find steering wheel paddle controls that give you the option of making sporty gear shifts on the CVT if you wish.
The interior of the Honda HR-V has been designed to make your drive as simple and enjoyable as can be. This is evident in a number of the features you’ll find inside. An electric parking brake replaces the manual handbrake, providing more space around the driving seat, while the 7 inch full colour touchscreen keeps you fully connected at all times. Using the Honda CONNECT in-car system, you can control everything from the audio to the information system, giving you access to everything you need to enjoy a smooth drive.
Advanced safety features
The new Honda HR-V comes with the brand’s Advanced Driver Assistance System technologies. This comprehensive set of safety features aid the driver by providing extra sensors, warning and reacting where necessary. Other safety features available on the Honda HR-V include Lane Departure Warning, Traffic Sign Recognition and Forward Collision Warning. It also comes with an Intelligent Speed Limiter to help you stay within the speed limit at all times.
