The next-gen Honda HR-V is powered by Honda’s advanced e:HEV hybrid powertrain as standard. The HR-V is the latest Honda model to join the e:HEV line-up after the Honda CR-V and the Honda Jazz adopted the clean powertrain in 2020.
The 2021 Honda HR-V also boasts refreshed styling cues to reflect the new design philosophy being adopted by the recent models rolled out by the Japanese automaker. The new design includes a new integrated grille giving the SUV a bold stance, and the long bonnet with sharper detailing makes the SUV appear slightly bulked up and also reflect that there’s no change in the roominess inside.
The hybrid SUV also sports a shoulder line that merges with the base of the A-pillars giving the HR-V a sharper appearance overall. The Honda HR-V also gets a coupe-inspired rear profile which seems like a fresh take on the SUV.
On the inside, the Honda HR-V retains the class-leading interior space like the outgoing model and 4 adults can easily fit inside with maximum comfort. The SUV features a mix of contemporary fabrics and soft-touch materials. The interior shows off the modern minimalist aesthetic touch which contributes to the overall sense of space inside.
The key highlight on the inside is the HR-V’s Magic Seats that offer a fold-flat or flip-up option to offer a decent amount of cargo space.
The all-new Honda HR-V e:HEV will be available in Europe later this year and the automaker may soon reveal the specs of the SUV too.
