The 2018 Honda HR-V will more than likely come without larger changes. This subcompact crossover is the company’s entry-level model. Up until now, we have seen 2 generations of it. While the initial model remained in production between 1998 and 2006, the second generation followed a long eight-year brake. The brand-new model remains in production since 2014, while the North American model came one year later. So, if we think about that the existing model is only for about 2 or 3 years of ages, 2018 HR-V will most likely come without changes, while the huge mid-cycle upgrade need to come probably in 2 years. So, this little crossover will continue with the basically very same qualities, featuring familiar styling and lots of equipment. We expect its arrival late in the year.
2018 Honda HR-V Features
As we already mentioned, the 2018 Honda HR-V will continue with the basically same characteristics. This small crossover will be readily available in 3 trim levels. Already the base LX model features a lot of features. There are things like 17-inch wheels, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and a height-adjustable motorist seat. When it pertains to hi-tech features, a 5-inch main display screen, a rearview cam, Bluetooth, and a four-speaker sound system with a CD gamer, an auxiliary jack and a USB port are all standard. The next one is EX, which adds some great things like foglights, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, heated front seats, automated environment control, a 7-inch touchscreen, 6-speaker audio system and mobile phone combination. Lastly, there will be a 2018 Honda HR-V EX-L Navi. This trim will consist of roofing rails, leather upholstery, a navigation system with voice recognition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and satellite radio.
2018 Honda HR-V Engine
When it pertains to powertrain, the 2018 Honda HR-V will continue with the same 1.8-liter engine, which certainly does not have in some aspects compared with the competitors. It has a max output of 141 horsepower and comes with a 6-speed handbook transmission in a basic variant. On the other side, a CVT is optional. When it comes to efficiencies, this little crossover has some of the weakest lead to class, which is certainly the main problem with this crossover. So, do not be amazed if company decide to offer some more efficient engine in the future.
