Shortly before the premiere of the new Honda HR-V on February 18, 2021, patent photos of the SUV appeared on Facebook. The pictures show that the new edition is designed much more pleasing and calm. So there is no front the wide decorative element that visually linked the headlights with the Honda logo. The upper end of the grill is only limited by a narrow strip, which could also be an LED strip. The grill itself seems to be getting a new grille, which, like the new Peugeot models, is composed of many small squares. The apron is less jagged, the lower air inlet designed in a sporty trapezoidal shape.
Completely changed taillights
The rear is also barely recognizable, which is probably due to the completely changed taillights. They are narrower on the patent drawings and become apparent connected by a continuous strip of lights. The recess for the license plate moves further down on the newly designed trunk lid.
Interior could be less nested
Nothing is known about the interior yet. However, it is speculated that Honda will do the Interior of the Civic prototype presented at the end of 2020 for the HR-V. The currently quite nested design would then give way to a more reduced, much more straightforward concept. The larger central display would be placed on the dashboard, the air inlets there would be combined into a long bar that also emphasizes the width.
Only as a hybrid
Honda has already announced that the compact SUV will only be offered as a hybrid. Should the drive come from the existing program, the closest would come of the SUV brother CR-V into consideration. With a two-liter four-cylinder and two electric motors, it offers 184 hp system output. Concerning transmission Both a manual six-speed gearbox and a CVT could be used. Thanks to the hybrid system, it could also be a All-wheel drive version give.
