- New Honda HR-V will launch with choice of two highly efficient engines
- CO2 emissions start from 104 g/km
- Fuel economy from 4.0 l/100km
- New HR-V set for summer launch across Europe
The all-new Honda HR-V will be one of the most efficient cars in its class and boast an unmatched combination of sought-after attributes when it arrives in showrooms across Europe this summer.
As well as dynamic styling, class-leading interior space and versatility, and advanced infotainment and safety technologies, the new HR-V will deliver fuel economy and emissions among the best in its class. It will be offered from launch with a choice of 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel and 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol engines, both from Honda’s advanced Earth Dreams Technology series.
Combining the 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel paired with a newly-engineered six-speed manual transmission, Honda’s new subcompact SUV will return fuel economy figures from 4.0 l/100km, with CO2 emissions starting from just 104 g/km. HR-V customers won’t find performance compromised by the car‘s frugality, however, with 120 PS powering the new HR-V from 0-100 km/h in 10.1 seconds.
Petrol buyers can select a 130 PS 1.5 litre i-VTEC engine, achieving combined fuel economy of 5.2 l/100km and CO2 emissions from 120 g/km when they opt for the CVT automatic transmission. When married with the standard six-speed manual, the new petrol-powered HR-V delivers fuel economy of 5.6 l/100km and CO2 emissions at a highly competitive 130 g/km. Sprightly performance is assured with 100 km/h reached from standstill in just 10.3 seconds with the manual and 10.9 seconds when equipped with the optional CVT.
The new HR-V‘s efficient performance credentials are aided by its design and class-leading aerodynamics, with underbody panels optimising airflow. In profile, the HR-V portrays a characterful poise, with the distinctive, boldly sculpted lines of a coupé merged with the tough, solid stance of a robust SUV.
Inside, the new HR-V will offer class-leading boot space: 453 litres with the rear seats up and 1,026 litres with the rear seats down. Thanks to innovative packaging, the HR-V’s best-in-class interior space is exceptionally versatile and incorporates Honda’s highly practical Magic Seats system. Premium quality materials and sophisticated cabin design are blended with the feel of a sporty, enveloping cockpit.
Specification highlights include the advanced Honda Connect in-car infotainment system, and a wide range of safety aids employing radar and camera technologies to scan the road ahead.
