Honda Press Release
April 4, 2022 — TORRANCE, Calif.
Stylish 2nd-generation HR-V features a low horizontal beltline, a longer hood, larger grille, wider stance and a sleek roofline
New HR-V will be more refined, confident and fun-to-drive with substantially improved dynamics and powertrain responsiveness
Model set to launch this summer
The all-new Honda HR-V debuts a clean, sporty and expressive exterior design for 2023, featuring a bold new grille, longer hood and sleek roofline. Based on the award-winning 11th generation Honda Civic, the HR-V is larger than its predecessor, with a longer wheelbase and wider stance while still remaining sporty and personal. The HR-V is the right size with the space and utility for an adventurous weekend escape, yet nimble to maneuver city streets. Set to launch this summer, HR-V will feature a more responsive engine and a new independent rear suspension, giving the compact SUV a more confident, refined and fun-to-drive personality.
"By gaining aspirational qualities beyond its segment, the all-new 2023 Honda HR-V will welcome a new generation of customers to Honda and grow in importance as a gateway to the Honda brand," said Michael Kistemaker, assistant vice president of Automobile Sales of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "This new HR-V will advance its position as the segment leader with young buyers, first-time buyers, and multicultural customers."
Inspired by the thrill of new experiences, HR-V's design is ambitious with a strong sense of adventure. A low horizontal beltline that begins with its extended hood and continues over the swell of the rear fenders gives its flowing forms a sense of motion. Wide-set LED headlights and taillights emphasize HR-V's athletic stance. A sculpted hatch and functional tailgate spoiler highlight its sporty proportions.
A large greenhouse provides excellent visibility, enhanced by door-mounted mirrors and HR-V's low cowl. For a cleaner, upscale look, laser-brazing technology eliminates the need for unsightly roof moldings, and HR-V's windshield wipers hide under the hood line when not in use.
More information about the all-new HR-V will be released over the coming months with interested customers encouraged to learn more at the Future Cars page on Honda.com.
