Now in its second generation, the Honda HR-V represents the best of both worlds between a compact and nimble city car, and a practical, commodious SUV.
The Honda HR-V is Honda’s flagship SUV
crossover and it offers a wide range of benefits that its other models simply
can’t provide drivers with. It’s a subcompact car with a front engine and seats
four passengers in total. There have been two generations of the car to date
and it’s proved a successful car for Honda so far.
It’s generally considered to be one of the top crossover SUVs on the UK market today. Families need the space, both in terms of legroom and comfort and in terms of storage space in the back, that cars like the Honda HR-V offer, so its success is not surprising. Learn more about the HR-V below.
The History and Development of the Honda HR-V
The Honda HR-V has a relatively short history in comparison with some of the other Honda models that are on the market today. The first generation of the car was based on the Honda Logo and was released in 1999. There were both three and five door options available. GH2 AMS GH4 configurations were available at this time.
The next time the HR-V was released, it was based on the third generation of the Honda Jazz. It was essentially a crossover SUV based on that very successful compact that has been released earlier, and it was a sales success also.
Last year, the HR-V went through a mid-cycle refresh and as a result, many upgrades were made. It’s still in production today and remains one of the most popular and succession crossover SUVs on the market, and it’s also known for its strong safety record. New trim levels were introduced recently and these were called the Sport and the Touring versions.
The Benefits of Buying a Used Honda HR-V
