The current generation C-segment SUV Honda HR-V has been on the market since 2014. The debut of the new version of this model, which is marketed by the Japanese brand in almost all world markets, is expected in the first months of 2022.
Although sales of the Honda HR-V are struggling to take off in Europe (more than 21,000 units sold last year), this model has hit staggering numbers in 2019 alone.
In fact, the Honda HR-V sold worldwide in 2019 nearly 280 thousand units, to which 257 thousand commercialization of the same model is named in another way. In China the Honda HR-V is called the Vezel or XR-V. In short, this SUV with more than half a million units a year represents one of Honda’s top models.
The new generation car will be a little bigger and more spacious. The images shown in the article are still unofficial renderings.
The new 2022 Honda HR-V should measure 440 cm in length and 179 in width, growing 11 and 2 cm respectively. The car will have an indicative wheelbase of 270 cm and a load capacity of 520 liters. The instrumentation will be digital with a large screen and a new infotainment system. Aesthetically, the New Honda HR-V must appear more muscular and manly. We will have full LED technology lamps as standard.
For safety there will be Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation, Guard Lane Assistance System and Adaptive Cruise Control as standard.
In terms of engine, the 2022 Honda HR-V biggest part should still be the 1.5i V-TEC which should be offered in 135 and 173 HP versions. At the same time, one if not two hybrid variants are coming which should always be based on the same engine and have more horsepower, guaranteeing reduced consumption and emissions. A new 1.0-liter V-Tec petrol engine with around 115-120 hp could also arrive.
Price & Release Date
On the other hand, the diesel version could definitely disappear, at least from the European market. The prices for the new 2022 Honda HR-V should be in the order of $ 29,000- $ 30,000 with commercialization starting in mid-2022.
