Less than a year after presenting the Honda HR-V 2015 concept, it is already ready for launch in the European markets.
The Japanese crossover is offered in the company of two engines, a gasoline 1.5-liter i-VTEC that develops 130 horsepower, and a diesel 1.6-liter i-DTEC engine delivering around 120 horsepower. Both engines are coupled to the six-speed manual transmission, but the gasoline version has the option of a CVT transmission type.
It promises a lot of interior space, folding rear seats, and a luggage storage space of 453 liters, which increases to 1,026 liters respectively. Inside, there is an infotainment system that runs on the Android 4.0.4 operating system and also a Garmin navigation system. Typical to the Japanese, there are a lot of connections available: USB, HDMI, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or MirrorLink.
Depending on the selected equipment, the new model Honda HR-V can be equipped with safety systems as Advanced Driver Assist, City Brake Active Assist, Intelligent Speed - Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, High-beam Support, and even Traffic Sign Recognition.
