We’ve all been waiting for the release of the all new Honda HR-v. Although we’ve seen the HR-v make its American debut, finally the Hr-v has appeared in the Canadian market. Kingston Honda has been anxiously anticipating the day an HR-v pops up on our lot. The new HR-v is an exciting new addition to the Honda line up and is designed for people who need a compact, comfortable, and versatile vehicle bundled together. Although the Hr-v has made its debut, we are still unsure about the complete details. The HR-v is scheduled to appear in dealerships mid to late spring of 2015, including Kingston Honda. This will make a great start to the summer seasons.
The new vehicle will be equipped with many new features, most of which come standard in the base model. The 2016 model will be available in 3 different trims the LX, EX, and EXL. It will also be available in a variety of colours starting with black, blue, red, white, forest green, and purple. The interior of the HR-v is stylish and designed for complete comfort and accessibility. All trims will include astounding standard features like heated front seats, a rear-view camera, Honda Hands-Free-Link, a 7-inch touchscreen display and a touch screen Climate Control system.
If you wish to upgrade, the top trim levels will equip the crossover with advanced driver awareness aids like push button start, a power sunroof and leather trim. Like the recently debuted 2015 Honda Fit the HR-v will include “Magic Seats” that can easily be folded in a variety of configurations to provide exceptional cargo space.
The 2016 Honda Hr-v will be powered by a 1.8 litre four-cylinder i-Vtec engine capable of pushing out up to 128 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque. Although a 6-speed manual transmission is available on 2WD models, the standard HR-V configuration will sport a continuously variable transmission that helps elevate fuel efficiency. With 2WD and all-wheel drive offerings, the 2016 HR-V will be a great option for drivers seeking a winter-capable vehicle that returns exceptional fuel economy ratings.
As we all know Honda is committed to safety. The HR-V is expected to deliver top-in-class collision safety performance and incorporates Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) front body structure, designed to more efficiently absorb and disperse the energy in the event of a front end collision. Standard safety and driver-assistive features include four-channel anti-lock brakes (ABS) with Brake Assist and Hill Start Assist; Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control; an Expanded View Driver’s Mirror; a Multi-Angle Rear-view Camera; dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags, driver and front passenger Smart-Vent™ side airbags and side-curtain airbags for all outboard seating positions. The HR-V is anticipated to earn top collision safety ratings from the U.S. NHTSA (5-Star Overall Vehicle Score) and the U.S IIHS (Top Safety Pick).
