The Mazda CX-3 rival’s exterior gets a more substantial interpretation of Honda’s latest ‘Solid Wing Face’ styling, bringing the crossover in line with the rest of the company’s line-up.

Up front there’s a deeper air intake that houses  circular fog lights, while the headlights now have projector lenses with a redesigned LED daytime running light signature.

At the rear, a dark chrome garnish across the tailgate mirrors the new trim at the front, and the rear lights sit within darker lens casings. Depending on spec, a new 17in alloy wheel design is available, as are chrome-tipped exhaust exits.

Inside, things remain largely the same as before, but Honda has improved the seating design and introduced noise-cancellation technology for the first time to improve refinement.

The HR-V remains as versatile as ever, including the carry-over of Honda’s innovative ‘Magic Seat’ system. Redesigned seats for the driver and front passenger incorporate changes to the seat cushion and back rest, providing enhanced overall support – especially for the shoulder area.

From launch, it’ll get a new 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine that produces 128bhp and 155Nm of torque. This gives it a 0-62mph time of 10.9 seconds and a combined fuel consumption figure of 53.2mpg. A 1.6-litre diesel will sit alongside it from spring 2019.

No prices have been revealed for the updated HR-V, but it will likely get a similar list price to the current car – around £19,000. We’ll bring you lease rates as soon as they’re available.
