Honda HR-V to reach India
The demand for SUVs and crossovers is at its peak and Honda doesn’t want to be left behind. Which is why Honda will be bringing the HR-V Crossover to India later this year, perhaps around Diwali. The HR-V will rival the likes of Nissan Kicks, Hyundai Creta, and Renault Captur/Duster.
Positioning

The crossover will slot between the BR-V and CR-V in the India line-up. Due to limited localization of the components, The HR-V has been a tough case for India, yet Honda has decided to go ahead. Honda will take the CDK route for the HR-V in India. The Car is expected to borrow the 1.8L petrol motor from the Civic, in a BS-VI compliant avatar. The 1.6L diesel unit is also expected in the HR-V’s engine bay.

What can we expect?

However, considering the price-sensitive Indian market, Honda might just go with the 1.5L engines from the City. This will help Honda, a larger extent in keeping the price down. Gearbox options will include a CVT and a 6-speed Manual. The design of the HR-V is more of a sporty coupe than a brute SUV, though many will prefer the look of the latter.

The Car is currently in its second generation, which went on sale in 2015. It received a mild facelift in 2018 and the same is expected to reach the Indian shores. The HR-V sports a design very similar to the CR-V. On the inside, the car is expected to feature similar elements as the Civic including the sunroof, which will be offered on higher variants.

The HR-V measures 4295mm x 1770mm x 1605mm (LxWxH). The interior will be spacious thanks to a wheelbase of 2610 mm and Honda’s Man-maximum, Machine-Minimum philosophy. A 180mm ground clearance means the HR-V won’t scrape its bottom.

Expect the HR-V to be priced in the range of 12-18 lakhs.
