The all-new Honda HR-V debuts a clean, sporty and expressive exterior design for 2023 - Car Blog

Hodangnhan.com - 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.



                Honda has revealed the new face of its second-generation HR-V and, well, it's certainly a bold design choice. From most angles, the compact SUV -- which should be larger and longer than its predecessor -- looks good, but that face is going to have to grow on me.

                This isn't the same new HR-V that recently debuted in Europe with a handsome and understated aesthetic and standard hybrid power. Rather, it's a US-specific offshoot that we first heard about last year and saw previewed in sketches in January. 

                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. The new fascia is more serious than its playful predecessor, but it also forms a face that looks a bit tired or bored in Honda's released photos. Then again, maybe it's just a bad angle.

                The new face leads the way for a longer hood, a lower beltline and a gently rounded roofline that all together highlight and emphasize the new HR-V's increased overall length and wheelbase. I imagine the larger footprint also means a more spacious cabin. We expect to learn specifically how much the HR-V has grown as Honda trickles details out over the next few months. 

                Crane your neck to examine the roof and notice that the HR-V doesn't have the longitudinal moldings running along the edges that you typically see on SUVs. A new laser-brazing construction technique eliminates that need, allowing for a cleaner look. Honda also cleans up the appearance of the front end with windshield wipers that tuck under the hood when not in use.

                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.

Interior - 2023 Honda HR-V

                The HR-V is likely to adopt a more modern interior design with this new generation and may be inspired by the newly redesigned 2022 Civic. Such an approach would give the HR-V an interior that looks both classic and attractive. The outgoing model offered Honda's novel second-row Magic Seat, which allows the rear bench to flip and fold to a very low, flat floor. That feature helped the tiny HR-V lead the segment in cargo capacity despite its size. Unfortunately, the HR-V's move to the Civic platform may prohibit such a feature from making a return on the 2023 model. When Honda releases details and photos of the new HR-V's interior, we’ll update this story with that information.

Engine and Performance - 2023 Honda HR-V



                In Europe, the HR-V is powered by a hybrid powertrain borrowed from the Insight and Accord but the we expect the U.S. version to come with a traditional gasoline four-cylinder powertrain. Since the HR-V shares its platform with the new Honda Civic, we could see either a 158-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a 180-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter under the SUV's hood. A hybrid model could be added to the lineup too, and we expect that model to launch later than the standard nonhybrid. Front-wheel drive and a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) will almost certainly be the standard arrangement with all-wheel drive offered as an option. The outgoing HR-V didn’t deliver the quiet athleticism we expect of Hondas, nor did it provide a particularly supple ride over potholed roads, so we are hoping for improvement in those areas. A new independent rear suspension promises to help both ride and handling. When we get a chance to drive the new HR-V, we will update this story with driving impressions and test results.



                Pricing for the 2023 HR-V is expected to increase slightly over the outgoing model. Once we find out more about the HR-V's various trim levels and its standard and optional equipment, we'll update this story with those details and pick our recommended model.

                To combat the onslaught of desirable and stylish small SUVs, Honda is gearing up its 2023 HR-V with a complete redesign. The outgoing generation was practical and offered good value but needed a major update to improve its curb appeal and challenge the segment's best, such as the Hyundai Kona, the Kia Seltos, and the Mazda CX-30. It gets it: The new HR-V looks totally different from the outgoing model, and also very different from the one sold in Europe.
