Honda’s strong-selling HR-V compact SUV has been given a boost in value for money with the release of an updated model range for 2017. aimed at taking on the Toyota C-HR and the recently updated Mazda CX-3.
To ensure the HR-V stays competitive against the Toyota C-HR and the recently updated Mazda CX-3 in the burgeoning compact SUV segment, satellite navigation is now fitted as standard equipment on all grades in the HR-V line-up, from the entry level VTi, all the way through the range to the top-of-the-line VTi-L with Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS).
“Not only has the HR-V been the top selling model in the Honda range for the past two years, but it is also one of the top selling small SUVs on the market, consistently ranking in the top three sellers in what continues to be an ultra-competitive segment,” Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins said.
“But more importantly for the Honda Australia business, HR-V continues to strike a chord with private buyers, where it leads the Small SUV segment with almost 83 per cent of its total sales over the past 12 months coming from the private sector.”
Unchanged from before, the HR-V gets its power from a 1.8 litre i-VTEC engine delivering 105 kW of power and 172 Nm of torque. All models drive the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT). Depending on model, fuel economy will range between 6.6 litres per 100 kilometres and 6.9 litres per 100 kilometres in the combined cycle.
The Manufacturer’s List Price (MLP) for all grades of HR-V remains unchanged for the 17YM line-up, despite the addition of integrated satellite navigation as standard equipment.
