Honda HR-V gets updates to keep it competitive

Motor Torque

Honda’s HR-V SUV ranks well in sales – the fifth best seller with around 24 players in the small SUV segment and next month it gains some improvements to keep it competitive. The refreshed HR-V lineup now gets Honda’s city brake active system low speed autonomous emergency braking as standard equipment. Pricing remains unchanged on the entry level models – the VTi opening the batting at $24,990, the VT-is from 27,990. Honda has dropped the current VTi-L in favour of a sportier RS variant from $31,990 while adding a new range- topping VTi-LX from $34,590. All HR-V’s retain the 1.8-litre naturally aspirated engine mated to a CVT continuously variable automatic with combined city/country cycle economy quoted at 6.9L/100. As I said last year, this is a very competitive small SUV – stylish, surprisingly roomy, well-specified, even better in this latest series with clever rear seat versatility – the
entry VTi very well priced and unchanged from $24,990. The HR-V, one of the best models in Honda’s range, is now even better. I’m David Berthon
