Honda Cars Nepal will be bringing in the HR-V subcompact SUV at the NADA Auto Show. The Honda HR-V sits above the BR-V and below the CR-V in Honda’s global SUV lineup. The 2019 HR-V gets new styling, with revised bumpers, headlights, grille, and taillights. The grille is enhanced by a new interpretation of the “flying wing” rendered in dark chrome and extending over the new projector-style headlights. Under the chrome band, the grille opening has been restyled to emphasize a wide look, and the fog light housings have been enlarged to help give HR-V a more aggressive stance. In the rear, new smoked turn signal lenses are connected by a thin chrome band, lending an upscale air to HR-V’s exterior.
Inside, HR-V benefits from a new Display Audio system featuring a simplified interface that includes a volume knob and the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. It offers voluminous interior space for passengers and cargo inside an exterior package that’s compact and easy to park. Features list include Paddle Shifters, Smart Keyless Entry, Cruise Control, 4 Airbags. Push Start System, a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and many more.
The car is available in a 1.5-litre i-VTEC naturally aspirated petrol engine, which delivers a peak power of 128 bhp and maximum torque of 155 Nm at 4,600 rpm. The engine comes mated to a CVT transmission. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes 11.2 seconds.
It also benefits from a long list of standard active and passive safety features. This includes Vehicle Stability Assist with traction control, driver and passenger front and side airbags, side curtain airbags with rollover sensor, Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist and Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure. All HR-V models feature a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines.
