Honda Cars Philippines just launched the All-New Honda HR-V packed with exciting upgrades engineered to “Heighten Your Senses.” The Honda HR-V made its Philippine debut last April 19 at The Blue Leaf Events Pavilion in Taguig with a simultaneous launch at Honda Cars Cebu.
Since the launch of the HR-V, Honda has sold 3.5 million units globally and 7,000 units since its Philippine launch in 2015.
The latest version of the HR-V combines functionality, safety and advanced features, sophisticated design and superior driving experience. It comes in two variants – the All-New HR-V V Turbo CVT Honda SENSING and the S CVT Honda SENSING.
On its exterior, the All-New Honda HR-V features an aggressive look that’s accentuated with premium and sporty details. Upfront, the subcompact crossover flaunts its newly shaped headlights and foglamps that houses standard LEDs with turn light signals, auto on/off function, and features Daytime Running Lights (DRLs). For the grille, the V Turbo CVT variant is fitted with a mesh type grille, while the S CVT comes with a black bar type grille. One notable design upgrade on the range-topping V Turbo is the sport type bumper with the Amp Up Line design.
Honda’s latest crossover features a sharp body line along with a coupe-like profile which was achieved through its sloping roofline and rear door handles that are well-integrated into the C-pillar. Both variants come with a shark fin antenna and 17-inch alloys wrapped 215/60 tires, the difference between the two rims is that the range-topping V Turbo CVT Honda SENSING has a gray finish while the base S CVT Honda SENSING is treated with a black and silver color scheme.
At the rear, the All-New HR-V features a striking LED Tail Light Bar which elevates the premium and sporty vibes of the exterior. Both trims have contrasting rear bumpers, while a dual tailpipe layout with finishers is available on the V Turbo CVT Honda SENSING variant.
Inside, the HR-V presents a human-centric cabin offering optimized comfort and premium features. The infotainment system includes an 8-inch touchscreen display audio paired with a 6-speaker sound system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Also, for better convenience, both variants of the All-New Honda HR-V come standard with a remote engine start function, allowing the driver to start the engine with just a press of a button from the key fob.
Leather upholstery is exclusive on the V Turbo CVT Honda SENSING, while the S CVT Honda SENSING comes with fabric seats. As for the instrument cluster where important vehicle details are projected, the V Turbo CVT Honda SENSING features a 7-inch digital display while the S CVT Honda SENSING comes with a 4.2-inch digital display.
Like other Honda vehicles, the All-New Honda HR-V also boasts its flexible interior space. Cargo loading is made easier with its ULT seats which are composed of 3 adjustable modes:
– Utility Mode – The two rear seats can be folded to increase cargo space, demonstrating Honda’s signature fold-flat flexibility at the rear.
– Long Mode – Folding front and rear seats for a lengthy space.
– Tall Mode – Honda’s unique versatility is shown in the tip-up rear seats for more vertical space. This feature is an HR-V exclusive in its segment.
The All-New Honda HR-V has two engine options – a 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC engine for the base S CVT Honda SENSING, producing 121 PS and 145 Nm of torque. While the V Turbo CVT Honda SENSING variant features a 1.5-liter VTEC Turbo engine, making it the first-ever turbo-powered HR-V. It produces a 177 PS and 240 Nm of torque. Both mills are then paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) for an efficient and refined driving experience
The All-New HR-V also has 3 distinct driving modes: Econ Mode, Normal Mode, and Sport Mode which is available in the V Turbo CVT variant only.
In pursuit of Honda’s global goal to realize zero traffic collision fatalities by 2050, the All-New HR-V comes standard with Honda SENSING. This provides comprehensive protection for drivers and passengers by giving warnings and automatically taking actions to reduce the risk of accidents. Safety features include:
