The HR-V Executive features quite a few visual enhancements.

The Honda HR-V Executive special edition and Civic Rally car based on the previous gen model have been showcased at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show alongside the Civic Hatchback concept. Honda has not talked about these two exhibits but the HR-V show car is likely to be introduced as special edition variant in the future.

Based on the previous gen hatchback, the Civic Rally’s purpose at the Geneva Motor Show is to entertain the motorsport fans. The car is finished in Castrol Honda livery with full race-spec aerodynamic body kit (front and rear spoilers, lowered suspension, side skirts, widen body work, etc). The car is fitted with OZ Racing wheels and Yokohama competition tyres. The rally car also sported an interior which is stripped to bare minimum and fitted with mandatory anti-roll bars.

The HR-V Executive is a purely cosmetic exercise. The compact crossover has been bestowed by sharp chin with integrated air splitter, glossy black grille applique, larger multispoke alloy wheels with dual-tone glossy black and red finish, stylish brushed metal side step, red wing mirror caps and a body colored rear bumper with black diffuser and reflectors.
