Honda has unveiled the latest generation of its compact HR-V SUV. It will be available with a two-motor e:HEV hybrid powertrain as standard for the first time. Honda says the all-new HR-V delivers ‘exceptional hybrid efficiency and advanced safety and technology features’, all incorporated into a new coupe-inspired design.
The new car is big on interior space and comfort also. Available in Europe from late 2021, the new HR-V is the latest model in Honda’s line-up to wear the e:HEV (hybrid electric vehicle) badge, following the refreshed CR-V and all new Jazz. The HR-V expands Honda’s electrified line up as the brand moves further towards its goal of electrifying all of its European mainstream models by 2022. Thanks to Honda’s compact, integrated powertrain technology and centre tank layout, the all-new HR-V also retains the versatile ‘Magic Seats’ that offer both ‘fold-flat’ or ‘flip-up’ seat flexibility, depending on cargo space required.
