The 2023 Honda HR-V Wants You To Think It Can Go Places And Do Things

The new HR-V will launch in North America later this year.

The third-generation Honda HR-V was unveiled in 2014, yet that was the variation for everybody outside of North America. Right here, Honda plans an HR-V with a little different styling and also a later launch day, since we’re special. Honda released teaser pictures of the 2023 HR-V on Thursday.

Honda did not launch much else, however it did say that the 2023 HR-V “will introduce in North America this year.” It will likely be hybrid, or a minimum of have that as an alternative, just like the international HR-V. We don’t know the price or various other specifications, nevertheless.

The styling for The United States and Canada is more overland-y than the global HR-V. This is a car for individuals that snowboard– or at the very least individuals who such as to think about themselves as snowboarders. Going a lot more tough is, typically, what Honda wants you to think of its SUVs and also crossovers nowadays, in the age of the brand-new Ford Bronco. Which is great, but I in some cases think that vehicle designers are encouraged that every car purchaser resides in Southern California as well as invests weekends in the mountains. So we all could be so fortunate.

Honda sold 137,090 HR-Vs in the U.S. in 2014 nevertheless, a 63 percent year-over-year increase from 2020, which I’m still attempting to cover my head around.

Variations of the auto date to the late ’90s, however it wasn’t marketed in the U.S. till 2015, as a 2016 model, after debuting in LA in 2014– an occasion so exciting that we didn’t even bother to blog it. The HR-V’s contemporary allure is mostly its rate, as it starts at $21,870, which is cheaper than a Civic. The HR-V is also, most likely, suggested for those that miss the Honda Fit, which Honda does not market right here any longer, because Honda claims they’re much more thinking about “generating income.” This is what we are worthy of, rather.
