The Honda HR-V - the World's Bestselling Small SUV
The abbreviation HRV officially stands for ‘High Rider Vehicle’, though the term 'Compact or Small SUV' has now become the accepted description for this hugely popular class of car that sits on a standard hatchback platform, but enjoys a slightly raised profile.
The Honda HR-V with its fresh sporty look combined with a super-spacious interior is the world's bestselling small SUV, and though slightly smaller inside than the CR-V is perfect for adventurous families. The HR-V is a coupé-styled SUV whose smart rugged looks with distinctive bumpers and a bold front grille cuts a sporty sprint with flowing curves that are further accentuated by the hidden rear door handles.
Responsive, as well as responsible…
The HR-V’s design features aren’t just skin deep, all the refinements have a purpose, like the sleek lines engineered to make the car more aerodynamic and fuel efficient. Advanced technology enables a highly efficient drive with new engines that mean you don’t have to compromise. Choose from the responsive and efficient 130PS 1.5 i-VTEC petrol, or the 120PS 1.6 i-DTEC diesel, both available in 6-speed manual options for a refined, smooth driving experience - The VTEC is also available with CVT automatic transmission which ensures optimum engine output when matched with speed, resulting in a smooth and comfortable drive and reduced emissions.
Honda HR-V Interior Space
The HR-V has the comfortable leg and headroom often only found in larger cars and the sense of space is further heightened by the opening panoramic glass roof, allowing light and air in. The Honda HR-V is designed to fit in with your life style, not just providing a lot of space, but a lot of useful space with the innovative Magic Seats system - The 60:40 split Magic Seats can adapt effortlessly in lots of useful ways. With one simple motion the seat can be folded up towards the headrest, providing a tall space behind the front seats while the Long mode allows you to fold the back row flat and then recline the front passenger seat allowing for a cavernous, deceptively large 1,026-litre cargo area. A wide tailgate opening with a low loading height also means the boot is quickly and easily accessible, from parked to packed in no time at all!
The Honda HR-V uses the very latest in-car technology, yet is incredibly simple to understand and use. The Honda CONNECT touchscreen entertainment system lets you stay in complete control while other features including Dual climate control means that it’s not only you who’s comfortable on a long journey, but also your passengers too. When you add front heated seats, you’ll find sitting in the HR-V is something you could really warm to.
With the beautiful lines of a Coupé, and the practical space and toughness of an SUV, the Honda HR-V is a car that keeps pace with your life, whatever road you’re on. From a weekend away to meeting friends in town, its designed to fit, but the adventure doesn't stop there with the new HR-V, so take it for a test drive from your nearest HSH Motor Company showroom in Bristol, Bath or Cardiff.
