Honda launches the 2018 HR-V with new paint color plus minor updates

While Honda’s new 2018 HR-V will be rolling out at the dealerships with just a few updates, the company is certainly not giving up its spot as the best-selling vehicle in the segment. Honda knows it has a winner in the HR-V.

In a press release, Honda North America said the new HR-V will boast a more generous interior room comparable to those on the midsize SUVs. Its Magic Seat technology, which provides various interesting setups, can make room for up to 100 cubic feet. Still for the upcoming model year, the subcompact crossover will get a new set of wheels with black insets both for the EX and EX-L. In addition, Honda throws in the new Aegean Blue Metallic paint that will be offered with some of its trims for the new 2018 model.

The 2018 HR-V is powered by a 141-hp (105kW) and 127-lb-ft (172Nm) of torque 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine paired to either CVT or six- speed manual. Its EPA- estimated fuel return is at 31 miles per gallon which means the HR-V is quite fuel efficient. Like before, a choice between all-wheel or front -wheel drive layout is available.

Initial sales for 2016 Honda HR-V are through the roof

Honda Motor Co. may just have solved its demand dilemma in the U.S. with the arrival of the new HR-V crossover. With unexpected sales of 6,381 units only in the first two weeks and before its advertising campaign has even started, things are definitely looking up for the automaker. This figure is triple what other automakers are able to achieve in one month with a new model in the segment.

This has caused Honda to rethink its options on how to meet the demand for the HR-V, a taller twin to the Fit subcompact. From the start of the year through May, the CR-V had been the top-selling crossover. The auto market had benefited from lower gasoline prices and the sales pace has been its fastest over the past ten years.

Judging from how the HR-V is performing, Honda is confident that smaller models will be able to sustain sales even when gas prices go up. In an interview, John Mendel, executive vice president of Honda’s U.S. sales unit, said that people will consider this small crossover as the “ultimate hedge against everything.”

2016 Honda HR-V debuts at the LA Auto Show powered by 1.8-liter engine with 138 hp

Honda’s all-new 2016 HR-V crossover was finally introduced at the 2014 LA Auto Show and promises to bring new customers to the Japanese brand.

The engine is bolted to a six-speed manual transmission on 2WD models, or a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda “G-design” shift logic on other versions. As expected, the HR-V is available in two-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive configurations.

The HR-V will be available in LX, EX and EX-L trims and will arrive as standard with power windows, power mirrors and power door and tailgate locks, electronic parking brake, rearview camera, aluminum-alloy wheels, tilt and telescoping steering wheel with audio and cruise controls.
