The all-new 2023 Honda HR-V is a self-charging hybrid that offers refreshing styling and a great driving experience. Unlike the other Honda models, this one is inspired by F1 technology, using a unique and smart e: HEV propulsion system. As far as we know, the system charges itself by generating energy while driving, so a charging station is not required.
On top of that, the new SUV looks handsome, and it comes with a pretty comfortable cabin. The HR-V will make passengers to feel safe thanks to the new Honda SENSING package of smart safety features that comes standard. According to Honda, the new SUV will debut later this year.
2023 Honda HR-V Renderings
First and foremost, the design of the new 2023 Honda HR-V is more eye-catchy than before thanks to more upright shape and blunter front end. While Honda is remaining quiet about a number of details regarding this model, we have our first look at the renderings.
The forthcoming SUV dominates at the front with a new grille, LED headlights, and the new hood. Interestingly, we also noticed large wheels and the more attractive taillights with a new graphic. Overall, we have high hopes for the next-generation, which will share many components with the recently updated Civic model.
The forthcoming 2023 Honda HR-V looks definitively more modern compared to the last generation. The cabin somehow reminds us of the new Civic. In general, this is a great move by Honda to make it look both classic and attractive. As before, the new model is available with the same Magic Seat, which allows the rear bench to flip and fold.
Thanks to that, this SUV will double its cargo capacity despite its size. All models will likely come with a larger screen than the current 7.0-inch. Also, expect Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and niceties such as onboard Wi-Fi, SiriusXM radio, and in-dash navigation.
2023 Honda HR-V Engine Specs
The new e: HEV system is powering the 2023 Honda HR-V model. As far as we know, this model in Europe will use a hybrid powertrain as the Insight and Accord hybrid models. The system will store energy into the battery to power an electric motor.
Unfortunately, the company didn’t reveal what engine will be under the hood of the model that will be available in North America. However, many believe that the next-generation HR-V could use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder borrowed from the Civic compact car delivering 158-hp. There is also a rumor that it could use a 180-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder.
2023 Honda HR-V Release Date, Price
Honda’s smallest crossover HR-V will be completely redesigned and is expected to debut later this year. Besides the new e: HEV system that is exclusive for Europe customers, the forthcoming model will also introduce more attractive styling and even better interior. Unfortunately, we must wait some time to officially get all information regarding engine options for other countries.
Overall, we can expect the upcoming HR-V will be available in four trim levels. The entry-level LX should start at $23,000, Sport at $25,000, EX will cost $26,000, and the most expensive EX-L will cost little less than 30k.
