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.
Why does this story matter?
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.
The car has LED headlights and larger rear doors
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.
Two petrol engine choices might be offered
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 SUV will get a Honda Sensing suite
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.
