Honda HR-V receives a significant makeover

The popular Honda HR-V urban crossover has undergone a significant upgrade programme. This latest model features all-new front and rear styling, an enhanced interior and upgraded equipment levels.

The HR-V has become a popular member of Honda Motor Southern Africa’s model range since being introduced locally in 2015.

While the updated model retains all of the outgoing model’s core characteristics and benefits, it delivers new, striking styling elements that transform the front and rear appearance. The addition of new exterior colours underline the HR-V’s youthful appeal.

The interior retains Honda’s unique Magic Seat System, which allows exceptional space utilisation, but features model-specific upgrades to the upholstery, fabric and finishes. In addition, the HR-V’s full-featured infotainment system has been standardised across the range.

Safety remains an HR-V priority with a full complement of active and safety systems that includes six airbags, vehicle stability assist, hill start assist, and emergency braking indicators.

The updated HR-V model range still offers a choice of Comfort and Elegance trim levels, as well as 1.5-litre and 1.8-litre drivetrains featuring Honda’s i-VTEC technology and Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) gearboxes.

“The Honda HR-V has been a worldwide success since its introduction, establishing a strong position in the ever-growing SUV category,” says Toshiaki Kusakari, Head of Automobiles at Honda Motor Southern Africa.
