Designed to adapt to your lifestyle, the HR-V gives you a clever, comfortable and capacious interior. A centrally-mounted fuel tank provides the HR-V with a huge boot and our novel 2nd – Row Magic Seats are further evidence of smart thinking.

Some of the other features are a 6.8 inch Display Audio with Touchscreen( LX and EX Grades) with USB and HDMI ports that allows you to connect your smart phone and use its features such as playing your favorite music and using the phone book to make calls to your contacts.

Powertrain
The HR-V has spirited engine performance matched with low running costs. It features a responsive 140hp @6500rpm and a torque of 172 N-m @ 4300 rpm on a 1.8L i-VTEC petrol engine which maximizes economy and efficiency, achieving 16.9 km/l, on a tank of fuel. The HR-V is front-wheel drive, driven by a 7-speed fully-automatic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). With the CVT transmission, you have the ability to drive the car in a relaxed, automatic mode or you can change gear using the racing car-inspired, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters (On EX Grade only).

Chassis
