Honda To Begin Sales Of New ZR-V SUV In April 2023
The Honda ZR-V will be available in dealerships across Japan
Honda has just confirmed that the brand will begin sales of their new SUV, the ZR-V across dealerships in Japan starting from 21 April 2023. If this is the first time you are hearing of this car, it is a model developed to combine practicality and reliability with class leading safety and a distinctive design for a better driving experience.
The all new Honda ZR-V will slot between the ever popular Honda HR-V and the Honda CR-V and brings with it the best of both worlds between both these cars. This is because the car is not as high off the ground as a Honda CR-V but not as compact as a Honda HR-V either making it more suitable for a wider audience.
Ironically, the Honda ZR-V will be a Japan only model for now but hopefully that changes soon as I would love to see this car in other markets as well. This car is also really easy on the eyes both inside and out and features a unique design as far as Honda cars go.
Moreover, the all new Honda ZR-V features a pronounced and almost Aston Martin shaped grille along with sharp headlights, a well proportioned body with just the right amount of contours and lines, 5 twin-spoke wheels and a very attractive list of cool and stylish colours to choose from.
Meanwhile, the interior is more than spacious enough for any occasion as it benefits from Honda philosophy of “man-maximum, machine-minimum,” and it is every bit as luxurious and modern as any Honda cabin from today. The centre console also appears really futuristic as there is no gear shifter but rather buttons to engage gears.
On top of that, the all new Honda ZR-v also comes equipped with a whole host of Honda Sensing safety features such as adaptive cruise control with low speed follow, rear collision mitigation control throttle, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, blind spot information system and so much more.
Furthermore, the all new Honda ZR-V also comes with a Bose premium sound system complete with 12 speakers which the Japanese automaker jointly developed with Bose to make it fit optimally in the cabin of the car and provide only the best sound experience enabling all occupants to have a comfortable and fun ride.
For now, the all new Honda ZR-V will be offered in Japan as an e:HEV hybrid model in line with the country’s carbon neutral goals so it will be exciting to see which other markets may get this car and how it will affect the powertrain options in time to come.
