Honda has confirmed that their all-new HR-V will arrive in showrooms across Australia in February 2015.

“The all-new HR-V is a very important model,” said Honda Australia Director Stephen Collins. “The HR-V will be positioned below the CR-V and complement our SUV line-up by offering versatility and practicality along with new safety technology, loads of features and of course a sporty, dynamic drive. We know consumers want more choice and we will offer that choice in the all-new HR-V, right into one of Australia’s fastest growing segments.”

Built on the new Jazz platform, the HR-V will be powered by a 1.8 litre i-VTEC engine, delivering 105 kilowatts and 172 Newton metres of torque. Fuel economy will range between 6.6 litres per 100 kilometres (combined urban/extra urban) and 6.9 litres per 100 kilometres (combined urban/extra urban).

The HR-V’s unique exterior design features sharp, dynamic lines that link the sleek upper body with the stable and planted lower body. This sporty exterior does not compromise the HR-V’s spacious interior, which features Honda’s unique Magic Seats that are also found in the Jazz and Civic hatch range. The Magic Seats enable a wide range of configurations – 18 in fact – along with the ability to fold the second row seats completely flat for added cargo space, suitable for many lifestyle and life-stage requirements.

The all-new Honda HR-V will also feature new safety technology – and a first for Honda – called City-Brake Active. This City-Brake Active feature works at low speed and can assist the driver when a vehicle in front stops suddenly, using a sensor located in the rearview mirror. The system provides an audible warning and can also apply braking.

Honda’s advanced touch screen Display Audio system is also a feature of the all-new HR-V. Found in the Odyssey, City and Jazz, the system includes voice-activated Bluetooth capability (Apple and Android) and audio streaming, meaning you never have to take your eyes off the road to stay connected.

Stay tuned to Next Car for pricing and specifications prior to the launch of the all-new Honda HR-V.
