The new Honda HR-V is preparing for its presentation. The compact SUV will be unveiled on February 18 and the Japanese house has released two new teasers: one with the first image of the interior and the other with the high profile of the tail, more defined than that of a few days ago. A way to increase the expectation for the debut of a model on the market for seven years and ready for a new chapter in its history.
Features and news
Honda HR-V 2021
The Japanese model will undergo a profound renewal, also on an aesthetic level . Many updates, in particular in a more robust and vertical front, with a larger hexagonal grille than the previous one and a flat hood in the shape of an inverted V, as well as updated headlights, as we have partly seen in the spy photos of the past months .
The new Honda HR-V will offer a straighter roofline, thus ensuring more headroom for rear passengers, while the rear will be a bit sportier, with a more typical SUV coupé look. Also, it should have a wheelbase longer than 50mm.
The passenger compartment will also undergo major changes, with a fully digital instrument grade and a new infotainment system, wirelessly compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a car always connected, with 5G. There will obviously be driver assistance systems.
It will only be hybrid
The Japanese compact SUV, for the first time, will be available only hybrid , equipped with the electrified powertrain with two-engine technology and: HEV developed by Honda. The innovative configuration of this engine, which combines high performance and low fuel consumption, will be the only one in the range, with the new Honda HR-V which, therefore, cutting sharply with the past, will not offer any type of thermal engine, nor petrol or diesel.
