2015 Honda HR-V

2015 Honda HR-V

Honda announced the launch of its upcoming 2015 HR-V subcompact crossover at 2014 New York Auto Show. The HR-V is based on the 2015 Honda Fit, and shares many of the same unique features that we’ve come to love in the Fit.

 

Overseas a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder as well as hybrid model are available, using Honda’s new 7-speed dual clutch transmission. Honda recently unveiled a new lineup of turbocharged VTEC engines, with a 1.5-liter version likely to be at least one of the engine options for the HR-V in North America.

The HR-V is expected to go on sale at the end of 2014, though Honda has not released extensive details about this new entry into the crossover segment. The HR-V will be aimed at the Nissan Juke and the Chevrolet Trax, with the latter going on sale around the same time.
