The next-generation Honda HR-V Hybrid, the brand’s popular compact SUV, visited Norton Way dealerships in both Letchworth and London for an exclusive VIP Preview Event, week beginning 13th September. Both evenings were hosted by a Honda specialist who gave our customers a guided tour. As one of five demonstrators currently in the UK, was an exclusive opportunity for our customers to explore the new model in person before it’s official arrival later this year.
The all-new HR-V has been engineered with a focus on maximising driver enjoyment and comfort. Compared to its predecessor, the new model has a more rigid body structure and benefits from extensive suspension, steering and braking enhancements. This allows it to respond more precisely to driver inputs, and delivers a more assured, more rewarding and more comfortable driving experience.
Offered exclusively as a hybrid, the HR-V has been crafted to be both extremely enjoyable and responsive to drive, as well as highly efficient. The two-motor e:HEV (hybrid electric vehicle) powertrain, which also features in the recently launched Honda Jazz, benefits from advancements made over 20 years of Honda hybrid development. For its application in the HR-V, there have been a number of revisions to counter the additional size and mass of the SUV over the Jazz. Power and torque have been increased to 96kW (131PS) with 253Nm respectively, whilst the final gear ratio has also been lowered for better driving performance.
The HR-V is available to order now. Contact us today for more information.
