This year, Honda is bringing us new 2016 Honda HR-V. This sporty crossover, with dynamic design and great fuel efficiency, will join the market very soon.
EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR CHANGES
Honda has high hope when it comes to their new model. We are promised a lot of exciting changes and new features. New 2016 Honda HR-V will be based on Japanese Honda Vezel, and with that, it will have a lot of similar features. One example will be a recognizable exterior. However, the front of the new HR-V will be renewed. It will feature small grille, sloped hood, and headlights that will be equipped with LED technology. It will use a set of 17-inch alloy wheels. Both from the back and the front, new Honda will have a dynamic and elegant look. Interior will also feature fresh and sporty design with a lot of soft touch materials. The cabin will be larger and able to comfortably accommodate up to 5 passengers. It will feature a lot of high-tech and safety features such as 7-inch touchscreen display, GPS navigation, automatic air conditioning, heated front seats, and many more.
2016 HONDA HR-V ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
Honda will probably only offer one engine option with their new model. This will be a 1.8-liter inline 4 engine. It will be capable of delivering 140 horsepower and around 132 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be paired with CVT gearbox. Both front wheel drive and all-wheel drive will be offered. This is the same engine that can be found on the Honda Civic, so we can already assume that the new 2016 Honda HR-V will provide a great, smooth performance. Honda also promises that we will witness improved fuel economy with the new HR-V. There are rumors that say that Honda might offer a hybrid model. This will most likely be a 1.5-liter unit from Honda Vezel.
RELEASE DATE AND EXPECTED PRICE
When it comes to the official release date of the new 2016 Honda HR-V, it is still unknown. However, we can expect to see this modern crossover on the market in the spring of 2015. The price is predicted to be in the range of $20,000 to $25,000, depending on the trim level.
