2015 Honda HR-V Engine – The Honda HR-V is a nameplate used on two distinct vehicles manufactured and marketed by Honda: a mini SUV which was produced from 1999 until 2006, and a forthcoming subcompact crossover announced in 2014. The forthcoming model has already been released in Japan under the name Honda Vezel.
The abbreviation HR-V, according to Honda’s HR-V history website, officially stands for Hi-rider Revolutionary Vehicle. The HR-V was introduced to cater for the demand for vehicles with the benefits of SUVs (in particular its bigger brother the Honda CR-V) such as increased cargo room, higher visibility, along with the maneuverability, performance and fuel economy of a smaller car.

The Honda HR-V is set to rival the likes of the Renault Captur and Nissan Juke and is due to go on sale in early 2015.
What is it?
The Honda HR-V was revealed in prototype form at the 2014 Paris motor show and is based on a similar platform to the Civic hatchback and the upcoming Jazz supermini.
Like the Jazz, Honda says the HR-V will have the ‘magic seat’ system that allows the second row of seats to be folded totally flat. Interior space is also increased by the positioning of the fuel tank, which is located under the centre of the car. As a result of these two features, Honda reckons the HR-V will have class-leading cabin space.
Although the car shown at the Paris show was described as a prototype, the full production car is not expected to alter dramatically. It is expected to be revealed in March 2015 at the Geneva motor show.

Honda has not confirmed the final engine range for the HR-V, but it is expected to get the 1.6-litre diesel that features in the likes of the Civic and the larger CR-V SUV.
How much will it cost and what equipment will it come with?
Pricing and equipment levels for the Honda HR-V are expected to be announced when the final production car is revealed in March 2015.
