The New Honda HR-VEverything perfectly in its place. The new Honda HR-V SUV was one of the stars on the Honda stand at the Paris Motor Show in 2014. In terms of space, the HR-V is a perfect compromise for a car more spacious than the Civic but not as big as the CR-V. Back in 1999 when the first HR-V was produced it was the first of its kind and practically made the small crossover section which is now one of the fastest growing sections in the UK market. The new HR-V design focused on giving the car a dynamic coupe look, but also keeping it "tough". The sophisticated interior of the new HR-V gives the driver a 480 litre boot capacity, a 7 inch screen display and touch panel automatic air conditioning. The HR-V is also fitted with a variety of safety features including, Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Intelligent Speed Limiter, Traffic Sign Recognition, and city-brake Active Assist.
Ultimate Safety Copious amounts of advanced engineering has been packed into the new HR-V that protects you, your passengers and others on the road. 1. Lane Departure Warning detects the road markings. If the car strays from the lane you are driving in without indication, the system will alert you with both audible and visual warnings. 2. Traffic Sign Recognition will automatically recognise road signs and display them on the Multi Intelligent Information Display, so that you can always see exactly what you have just passed. 3. City Break Active System is a laser radar system that scans ahead, automatically applying the brakes after detecting if there is a risk of a possible collision. 4. Airbags have been fitted throughout the HR-V, including curtain airbags, also known as Supplemental Restraint System, offering you greatly enhanced protection whilst on the road.
Versatility The Honda Magic Seat feature provides extreme versatility, allowing you to fold up the rear seats when not required in order to create a more spacious boot area. With a length of 4,295mm this makes the Honda HR-V the new leader in its class for size.
SportyHidden rear door handles creates the illusion of a three door sporty car, whilst simultaneously providing the convenience of a five door car. The HR-V sits on smart alloy wheels, with angular automatic headlights encompassing a gloss black grille, with air intakes both below and above.
Performance The new HRV comes with a choice of two engine choices: A responsive 129 bhp 1.5 litre petrol or an extra efficient 118bhp 1.6 litre diesel – returning up to 71mpg, with 118 and 128bhp respectively, both will come with a manual gearbox plus a petrol auto option. As well as this, with Honda’s Earth Dreams Technology, Idle Stop and the Honda ECON function, an excellent money saving function.
