Its luxurious interior features a full range of equipment including a Double Layer console and a spacious passenger cabin designed for multi-utility functionality. The all-new Honda HR-V is powered by a 1.8-liter SOHC, 4-cylinder, 16-valve i-VTEC engine that provides 141 horsepower plus a new continuously variable transmission (CVT) developed under Honda's "Earth Dreams Technology" to enhance both driving performance and fuel economy. The engine is compatible with E85 fuel. Advanced safety technologies such as an Electric Parking Brake and Automatic Brake Hold offer safety and comfort for all driving conditions.

The exterior design of the all-new Honda HR-V, elegant in all dimensions, is formed by sharp character lines that blend together the sleek cabin and the dynamic lower body. Together with the character lines and rear door handles that are integrated into the side windows, the design reflects the sportiness of a two-door coupe. The front face was designed with a "Solid Wing Face" concept and strengthens the tough look and stylish front grille by using a black colour. It's complemented by a Panoramic Sunroof, LED Daytime Running Lights and LED Tube taillights, which add a sophisticated and sporty look.
