The all-new 2016 Honda HR-V crossover made its world debut at the 2014 LA Auto Show. The new HR-V is a brand-new crossover from Honda which will fit below the CR-V. The compact HR-V crossover will hit dealerships in early 2015 and will compete in the fast-growing entry-level crossover segment.
“The new HR-V crossover is a true segment-busting vehicle, unlike anything else on the market today,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and general manager of the Honda Division. “It’s got all the essential elements of our Honda DNA, our packaging innovation, fuel-efficient powertrain technology, leading safety technology and, above all, Honda quality, to make this an incredibly compelling, sporty and value-packed new member of the Honda family.”
Power for the 2016 Honda HR-V comes from a 1.8 liter 4-cylinder engine making 138 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. Transmission choices include a 7-speed manual or a CVT transmission. Honda will offer the HR-V with either two-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive drivetrain configurations.
