2015 Honda HR-V Release Date
Considered one of the first original crossover sport utility vehicles, the Honda HR-V was first built in 1999 and discontinued in 2006. It’s original incarnation was designed to fill the gap created by a rising demand for a vehicle that had all the benefits of an SUV, but also the benefits of a smaller car. Thus, the birth of the CUV. And after a healthy vacation, the subcompact crossover is back! And rumor has it, the 2015 Honda HR-V release date could be as early as this winter.
The new model is a dynamic SUV with a small build and great fuel economy, everything thing that consumers were looking for back in 1999. Debuting at the New York Auto Show, one of the coolest new features of the 2015 model year is the addition of hidden door handles. The feature adds to the sportiness of the vehicle, and offers a cool, modern update. The smaller SUV still has to cater to the cargo capacity needs of drivers, while accommodating its small size. Honda takes care of this with the Magic Seat, which offers greater flexibility as the second-row seat folds completely flat to create more space.
Not many other details are known about the all-new model, beyond the fact that it will be built on the Honda Fit platform. Because of this, we can assume that one of the likely options for engines is the Fit’s 1.5L four-cylinder engine, which has 130 horsepower. As we get more information we’ll be sure to update you on it, so check back often for the latest on the 2015 Honda HR-V.
