Positioned between Honda Fit and Honda CR-V, the new Honda HR-V subcompact crossover has made a grand entrance. With overwhelming response yet unseen by any automaker in the first month of launch, Honda gears up for increased production to meet demand.
Honda HR-V mainly competes with the Jeep Renegade in the US. Both are compact SUVs with the HR-V best suited for city and suburban use for small families. Honda HR-V is powered by a 141 hp, 1.8 liter four cylinder engine mated to a continuous variable transmission or six speed manual. The all wheel drive is given as an option with the CVT. Honda HR-V is highly fuel efficient offering combined 31 mpg even while it offered efficient handling, power and performance.
Interior space on board Honda HR-V crossover is at a premium. The rear seat can accommodate two adults, offering added head and legroom while it accommodates two passengers in front with equal amount of comfort. The Honda HR-V crossover is the roomiest vehicle in its segment with Magic Seats that fold to offer substantially more cargo room.
Where safety is concerned, Honda HR-V expects to pass NHTSA and IIHS with flying colors and receive best in class rating. It receives rear view camera, tyre pressure monitors, traction system, airbags and lane watch camera as a part of its safety features. All models receive power windows, locks and mirrors with tilting and telescopic steering wheel with audio controls while pricing is starts at $19,995 ( INR12,82,478).
