The 2016 Honda HR-V crossover has made its world debut as an all-new model from Honda. The new Honda HR-V crossover fits right under the CR-V crossover and is based on the Honda Fit.
“The new HR-V crossover is a true segment-busting vehicle, unlike anything else on the market today,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and general manager of the Honda Division. “It’s got all the essential elements of our Honda DNA, our packaging innovation, fuel-efficient powertrain technology, leading safety technology and, above all, Honda quality, to make this an incredibly compelling, sporty and value-packed new member of the Honda family.”
Targeting the younger crowd and those shopping in the fast-growing compact crossover segment, Honda says that the new HR-V is fun-to-drive performance, offers class-leading fuel economy ratings and unmatched interior spaciousness and cabin versatility.
While it is small – the Honda HR-V offers 100.1 cu. ft. of passenger volume (LX) and 58.8 cu. ft. of cargo volume with the second row seats down.
Power for the 2016 Honda HR-V comes from a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine making 138 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to either a continuously variable transmission with Honda G-Design or a 6-speed manual. Honda will offer the HR-V with front-wheel or all-wheel-drive.
Prices will be announced closer to launch.
