Honda is rightly well known for the outstanding performance and luxury of its large SUV, the Pilot, and for the class ‘king’ CR-V which dominates medium SUV/Crossover markets around the world.
Welcome to the HR-V, Honda’s first small SUV. It benefitted from being completely new where Honda could start with a clean sheet. So, the bold new HR-V blends the beautiful lines of a coupé with the practical space and toughness of an SUV, creating a car that catches the eye and stirs the heart.
Most of us may be driving SUVs in the near future because the latest auto fight is in the fast expanding compact SUV class. So, welcome to the all-new HR-V – already popular around the world as Honda has created a car that can keep pace with your life. Welcome to the new standard in compact comfort, style and versatility.
You’ll definitely make a powerful impression with your new HR-V. Its strong lines and distinctive Honda grille emphasise its bold design and the sleek sculpted body – sitting on 17″ sporty alloy wheels – combines an aerodynamic but practical crossover profile with a sporty edge.
The bold new HR-V delivers a multi-dimensional driving experience that’s small on compromise and big on fun. It has spirited engine performance matched with low running costs. It features a responsive i-VTEC engine which maximises economy and efficiency. With the CVT transmission, you can drive the car in a relaxed, automatic mode or, if the mood takes you, change gear using the racing car-inspired, steering wheel-mounted paddles.
You may just be doing the weekly shop but that shouldn’t mean you can’t do it with space and style. New leather upholstery complements the generous interior and is coupled with sporty details like chrome door handles and leather steering wheel and shift knob, giving the HR-V a premium feel.
Designed to adapt to your lifestyle, the HR-V gives you a clever, comfortable and capacious interior. Centrally-mounting the fuel tank provides the HR-V with a huge boot and the novel Magic Seats are further evidence of smart thinking. The Magic Seats are designed to configure in lots of useful ways to increase its carrying capacity and versatility.

EXTERIOR The HR-V’s contemporary shape catches the eye and stirs the heart. Its fluid lines have not only been designed to make the car look dramatic but, importantly for your bank account, more aerodynamic and therefore more fuel-efficient. New design details like its distinctive dark chrome front grille, sleek headlights, daytime running lights (DRL), rear chrome trim and sporty front bumper give it an elegant yet rugged look
INTERIOR The HR-V cockpit is intuitively designed to ensure that everything is where you need it; the elegant dashboard includes the very latest technology, and it’s also incredibly easy to understand and use. Black and beige leather upholstery, automatic climate control and electrically adjustable door mirrors are just some of the features that make the new HR-V a great in-car experience
SAFETY/SECURITY Driver Assistive technologies, like Vehicle Stability Assist™ with Traction Control, Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ Body Structure all assist the driver and enhance occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions; the HR-V has been awarded maximum five star safety rating by Euro NCAP.
