This shall be mated to a six-speed manual transmission, Honda may also offer a CVT with this engine. The Honda HR-V will also tweaked to offer better performance. The diesel engine is anyways high on performance and mileage as it is lightweight. However, Honda would want to work on its NVH levels.

Honda HRV India Design

The 2018 Honda HRV receives exterior styling updates to further expand its appeal. The grille is enhanced by dark chrome that is extending over the new projector-style headlights. Under the chrome band the grille opening has been restyled to emphasize a wide look. The fog light housings are enlarged to help give HR-V a more aggressive stance. In the rear, new smoked turn signal lenses are connected by a thin chrome band, lending an upscale air to HRV’s exterior.

Honda HRV Front

HR-V Sport features unique lower body trim, painted glossy black on the lower front and rear bumper, rocker panels, and wheel arches, as well as the gloss-black exterior mirrors. HR-V Sport also receives a honeycomb pattern grille, exclusive 18-inch alloy wheels and tires, and in the rear there’s a chrome exhaust finisher.

The new line-topping HR-V Touring trim flanks its honeycomb grille with multi-element Honda LED headlights that are unique in the HR-V lineup, as are the 5-element LED fog lights. Touring models come with exclusive 17-inch machined alloy wheels, for an upscale look. HR-V Touring also comes with similar lower-body trim as Sport, but painted body color rather than gloss black, along with the body-color outside mirrors.

Honda HRV Rear

We don’t know what all from this impressive list of exterior details will make it to India but we can expect a lot of it to come when the car comes to India next year.

The bigger sibling CR-V is also designed in a crossover format and the HRV carries a similar design language. It is a good looking vehicle though and will also have a good road presence. It is sure to turn heads and its design will be one of its high selling points. 

A coupe styled roofing is seen here, with a downward slope at the rear. The rear door handle has been moved to next to the window and is hidden, giving it a two-door look. A clean silhouette adorns the HR-V and it has minimal lines running across. The rear has large tail lamps that give it a bold look and it has an integrated rear spoiler as well. These elements make the HR-V quite appealing and eye-catching too. There is also a shark fin antenna on the roof towards the rear. The part below the bumpers is black in colour, which gives it a purposeful look.
