Honda HR-V Compact SUV

ANNOUNCING THE ALL-NEW HR-V COMPACT SUV

Introducing the all-new Honda HR-V, the small SUV that delivers go-anywhere-and-back versatility in a compact urban design. Launching this winter, the HR-V features sleek, expressive styling and hidden rear door handles that lend it a coupe-like presence. And it’s built on the same global compact platform that underpins the Fit, with a unique centre tank layout that allows for a versatile and spacious interior.

Inside, you’ll find all the versatility, style and spaciousness you’ve come to expect from Honda. The Honda-exclusive Magic Seat® splits and tucks away with ease, allowing for multiple seating configurations and the ability to fold the second row completely flat for added cargo space. Confident in crowded urban streets or shedding the city and hitting the open road, the all-new HR-V will serve as the entry point into the Honda light-truck lineup, positioned below the CR-V in both price and size. This winter, see where the HR-V can take you.
