The Honda HR-V picked up the What Car? Reader Award at the start of 2015, crowning it the most anticipated car of the coming year. The car is not far off going on sale, and here are the key facts about the new SUV.
BECAUSE LIFE ISN’T
The bold new HR-V gives you more. Stylish, versatile and practical, it delivers a multidimensional driving experience that’s small on compromise and big on fun. With the beautiful lines of a coupé and the practical space and toughness of an SUV, it’s a car that can keep pace with your life.
BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL
A passion for design. The HR-V’s contemporary shape catches the eye, but it also stirs the heart. Its robust appearance and sporty side profile have been designed to make it a car you’ll love to see and be seen in. So whatever road you’re on, from a weekend away, to meeting friends in town, the HR-V is designed to fit.
Everything has been thought out. The little details really make a difference, such as the recessed door handles and the tapered rear windows. It’s a car with a purposeful look; striking light clusters and distinctive sculpted lines, a sporty body coloured tailgate spoiler and elegant roof rails* and with the HR-V’s opening panoramic glass roof*, looking out is as impressive as looking in.
DEMAND A SECOND LOOK
Design that gets you noticed. The HR-V’s looks aren’t just skin deep. All our refinements have a purpose. The chiselled lines have been engineered to make the car more aerodynamic and fuel efficient.
But there’s no economising when it comes to style. Design touches, like the flowing front grille and sharply cut lines of the profile, mean the HR-V cuts quite a dash, even when standing still. While it has agility, it also has solidity. Details like the lower body panels and distinctive bumpers give it a rugged appeal. Combined with the sophisticated-yet-fun driving dynamics and fuel-efficient performance, the HR-V really delivers.
MAKES THINGS A LITTLE EASIER
Designed around you. When you need to keep your eyes on the road, it’s great to know that you’ve got everything to hand. We’ve intuitively designed the HR-V cockpit, so that every feature is where you need it. The elegant dashboard uses the very latest technology, yet is incredibly simple to understand and use. Together with the new Honda CONNECT touchscreen entertainment system, you stay in complete control.
Other features are also close at hand. Dual climate control means that it’s not only you who’s comfortable on a long journey, but also your passengers. Add electrically adjustable door mirrors, power windows and front heated seats* and you’ll find sitting in the HR-V is something you could really warm to.
