Honda HR-V…….soon with the CR-V 1.5 Turbo Engine
Spotted in Europe with a slightly modified front bumper with larger air intakes and LED daytime running lights, these are the primary distinguishing features for the 2019 Honda HR-V. The lighting systems are now also with full-LED technology. In the cabin the changes are small and Honda has focused on noise minimization and so with the addition of better insulation, Honda also installed an “Active Noise Canceling” system with two loudspeakers for the first time.
The HR-V remains as versatile as ever, including the carry-over of Honda’s innovative Magic Seat® system. Redesigned seats for the driver and front passenger incorporate changes to the seat cushion and back rest, providing enhanced overall support – especially for the shoulder area.
From launch, the 2019 Honda HR-V will be available with the highly-efficient 1.5-litre i-VTEC naturally aspirated petrol engine, which offers a high output of 130 PS and maximum torque of 155 Nm at 4,600 rpm. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h takes 11.2 seconds with the CVT.
Production of 2019 HR-V 1.5L i-VTEC variants has started with the deliveries commencing from October. A sportier, 1.5L VTEC Turbo engine will follow very soon which is shared from the all new Honda CR-V 1.5L Turbo.
