2021 Honda HR-V design details revealed
Honda has revealed some design details and further info on its upcoming HR-V SUV, which is set to arrive before the end of the year.
Poised to take on cars like the Nissan Qashqai and Renault Captur. here’s everything we know so far.
Honda HR-V styling
The Honda HR-V has been given a full makeover on the outside, marking a noticeable departure from the styling of its predecessor.
Up front, there’s a much slimmer set of headlights, while the grille dominates the bumper. The bonnet appears longer too, while at the rear there’s now a lightbar running the full width of the vehicle.
At the rear, Honda has given the HR-V a coupe-like style, thanks to a raked rear windscreen. The Japanese carmaker says its aim was to give the HR-V a minimalist appeal.
Honda HR-V interior
On the inside, Honda has focused on providing a spacious, airy feel. It’s done this up front by giving it a flat dashboard design and ensuring the windows are as large as possible. Combined with the flat bonnet, it gives occupants great visibility.
The position of switches and controls have also been chosen to boost ergonomics and ensure everything falls to hand hand is in the driver’s line of vision. In the rear, the boot floor is completely flat, enabling easier loading of large items.
Exact numbers are to be confirmed, but Honda promises “class-leading interior space, with four adults able to sit in maximum comfort”. Honda’s Magic seats will also be on offer – a feature that will ensure the HR-V remains as versatile as ever.
Honda HR-V engines
The new HR-V will be hybrid-only and, while it’s yet to be confirmed, it’ll probably be offered with the same 1.5-litre and 2.0-litre hybrid drivetrains seen in the most recent CR-V and Jazz models.
Honda HR-V release date
No exact launch date has been given yet, although we expect the HR-V will be available to order before the year is out.
We’ll bring you more info on the all-new HR-V when we hear more. Prices will be revealed in due course.
