The all-new HR-V e:HEV is powered by Honda’s advanced two-motor hybrid powertrain technology, delivering a blend of efficiency and responsive performance. The sub-compact SUV joins Honda’s e:HEV (hybrid electric vehicle) model line-up for the first time and represents one of the final steps in the brand’s commitment to electrifying all its European mainstream models by 2022.
When reimagining the HR-V, Honda set out to create a car with a desirable blend of stand-out design, exceptional efficiency and ultimate usability. Conceived to meet the exacting needs of modern consumers, the new model achieves a rare balance of premium SUV styling and exceptional spaciousness, with compact dimensions and easy entry and exit for passengers. All this is enabled by Honda’s ‘Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum’ (M/M) principle, which centres on the belief that the purpose of technology and design is to serve the needs of the driver and passengers.
Coupe-inspired exterior with premium SUV styling
With its forward-oriented character lines and smooth surfaces the next-generation Honda HR-V e:HEV embodies the brand’s simple, clean, modern design philosophy already seen in recent new Honda models.
Defined by the same key design concepts of function and beauty, the compact coupe-inspired shape is familiar yet exciting in appearance, with a playful character and confident SUV stance. Its sleek silhouette is achieved by increasing road clearance by 10 mm and reducing the roof height by 20 mm compared to the previous model. Increasing the size of the wheels to 18 inches, which come as standard on the all-new Honda HR-V, and reducing the front overhang further reinforce the robust SUV appeal, and provides the aesthetic solidity that modern customers desire.
