A unique combination of SUV, MPV and coupé characteristics makes the latest Honda HR-V model stand out above the rest.
One of the popular Honda model ranges, the HR-V has undergone a significant upgrade programme. From an enhanced interior to upgraded equipment levels, the all new HR-V retains the core attributes of its predecessor.
A sleek design, an innovative crossover
Since being introduced in 2015, the Honda HR-V combines a sleek coupé-like design with the robust attitude of an SUV and the space and versatility of a MPV.
The updated HR-V retains the outgoing model’s core characteristics and benefits while also delivering a transformed front and rear appearance.
A range of exterior colours that now include Passion Red and Brilliant Sporty Blue, underline the HR-V’s youthful appeal.
The new Honda HR-V retains the unique Magic Seat System® that ensures that all the space inside the cabin is used to its fullest.
