2023 Honda HR-V, with better looks, goes official: Check features
Japanese automaker Honda has revealed the 2023 version of its HR-V SUV for the North American markets. It is unclear whether it will arrive in India. As for the highlights, the four-wheeler bears a head-turning look and is tipped to be offered with a choice of two petrol engines. Sadly, details pertaining to its interiors are currently unavailable.
- The 2023 Honda HR-V will replace the model on sale in North America since 2014, and offers better looks and larger proportions compared to it. A lot of customers are expected to be interested in the model there.
- The company does not currently retail any SUVs in India. If the HR-V debuts here, the competition in the segment will be raised.
Honda HR-V sports a sculpted bonnet, a large honeycomb mesh grille, sleek LED headlights, and a wide bumper with faux inlets. It is flanked by black B-pillars, indicator-mounted ORVMs, larger rear doors, and designer Star-spoke wheels. A shark-fin antenna, a window wiper, and wrap-around taillamps are available on the rear. It is offered in Urban Gray Pearl, Milano Red, and Nordic Forest Pearl shades.
The 2023 Honda HR-V might run on a 2.0-liter petrol engine that makes 158hp of power, and a 1.5-liter turbo-petrol mill that generates 180hp of power. Transmission duties will be handled by manual and automatic gearboxes linked to an all-wheel-drive system.
The new Honda HR-V is expected to have a spacious cabin, featuring auto climate control, key-less entry, rear AC vents, parking sensors, and a multifunctional steering wheel. It will house a touchscreen infotainment panel with support for the latest connectivity facilities. The passengers' safety will be ensured by multiple airbags and a Honda Sensing suite of driver assistance features.
Honda will disclose the pricing and availability details of the 2023 HR-V in North America at the time of launch. However, it should carry a starting price-tag of around $24,000 (roughly Rs. 18.1 lakh).
