New Honda HR-V
Honda’s combat SUV has been popular since it was launched in the Australian market in 2015. With a reputation for looking good, being easy to drive and offering generous features, potential buyers are excited to hit the showrooms when the updated 2018 Honda HR-V comes out. These cars get better with age, superseding standards in design, performance and functionality with every new iteration. The 2018 Honda HR-V is no different. Below we look at some of the exciting new features.
With daytime running lights and LED headlights, the new HR-V makes a striking visual impression both day and night. The vehicle’s exterior is handsome with a broad bonnet, deep grille, sculpted door panels, chrome door handles and dark tinted rear glass. The HR-V is renowned for its spaciousness thanks to a clever design that aims to give the driver and passengers increased head and leg room. A cockpit style dash ensures all the infotainment features are intuitive and easy to reach for the driver. The seat bases in the back also fold up vertically like in a cinema, allowing you to fit in taller objects.
The HR-V has a 105kW/172Nm 1.8-litre four-cylinder engine with a CVT automatic transmission. Fuel consumption ranges between 6.6L/100km and 6.9L/100km depending on the grade, as there is a variation in weight. This means you can enjoy excellent fuel consumption and a pleasant driving experience, whether you’re in the city or on a highway. With elevated seating, excellent visibility, comfortable seats and light, accurate steering, you are in for a good ride.
Key Differences Between Grades
The HR-V range comes in three grades - the VTi, the VTi-S and the VTi-L. They all have the same engine size so the differences come down to the features. Standard features include: ● A 7.0-inch multimedia touchscreen ● Bluetooth connectivity for your iPhone or Android smartphone ● GPS navigation ● Reversing camera ● Climate control air conditioning ● LED tail lights ● Electric park brake ● Halogen projector headlights with daytime running lights ● Cruise control The VTi-S offers additional features such as 17-inch alloy wheels (as opposed to 16-inch for the VTi), keyless entry, push button start, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as advanced safety features like auto emergency braking. Additional offerings in the VTi-L includes leather upholstery instead of cloth, heated seats, front and rear parking sensors and a panoramic sunroof. VTi-L drivers can also enjoy extra safety equipment including forward collision warning, lane departure warning and adaptive high beams.
