The all-new HR-V is a new generation crossover compact SUV from Honda designed to give drivers the personal feeling of a coupe, comfort of a sedan, and the toughness and confidence of an SUV. It’s an all-around vehicle for people looking for a car with great outward visibility, high ground clearance, and full safety features. It also boasts a wide tailgate, generous cargo space, and the same ULT seats found on the Jazz, making it extremely configurable when loading or unloading cargo.
Outside, the All-New HR-V has strong cues of coupe-like aero-cabin and SUV-like lower body developed under the concept of “Dynamic Cross Solid”. Up front has a solid wing face design with unified grille and lights incorporating LED Day Time Running Lights (DRL) and LED Dual Projector Head Lights. Sporty 17-inch Alloy wheels also come standard across the range.
Under the hood is Honda’s 1.8 liter i-VTEC engine that delivers maximum power output of 141hp and 172 NM of torque mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Earth Dreams Technology. This combination delivers exhilarating driving performance while also delivering good fuel economy when driving in and out of the city in the Philippines.
This is what happens when things grow too big and get too expensive. Over the years, the Civic has ballooned to Accord proportions, prompting Honda to build the City. Now it's the CR-V's turn, so they revived the HR-V nameplate to give us this.
Sure, the all-new Honda HR-V comes with all the latest safety features such as airbags, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA), and ISOFIX child seat mounts, but only organizations such as the ASEAN New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) can attest how safe it really is.
