North American Gets a Larger Honda HR-V

North American Gets a Larger Honda HR-V

Honda’s smallest SUV is entering its second generation and US will be getting a re-designed unit just like the rest of the world with a little tweak. These are the first official photos of the redesigned model that’s headed to the U.S which is larger than before and distinct from the smaller EU/ASIA-market model revealed last year.

The new front end is a dramatic departure from the previous generation and now boasts much larger and wider headlamps similar to the current Honda Civic. Spread farther apart, they accentuate the compact SUV’s wider stance and no longer connect with the grille, which is also larger. Around back is a tidy rear end with new Civic-inspired taillights that look sharp and accent the larger HR-V’s shoulders with their horizontal design. Just above, a subtle tailgate spoiler adds a sporty pop and aerodynamic functionality.

Expect either a version of Honda’s 158-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder or, if we’re lucky, the Civic’s 180-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter. The new Honda HR-V launches this summer with a 2023 model year designation.
