Called as Vezel in home market (Japan), Honda needed the HR-V to succeed in the US market – which it has.

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.
