The 2018 Honda HR-V will more than likely come without bigger changes. This subcompact crossover is the company’s entry-level model. So far, we have actually seen 2 generations of it. While the initial model was in production in between 1998 and 2006, the 2nd generation followed a long eight-year brake. The new model is in production since 2014, while the North American model came one year later. So, if we consider that the existing model is only for about two or 3 years old, 2018 HR-V will probably come without changes, while the huge mid-cycle upgrade should come most likely in 2 years. So, this small crossover will continue with the practically exact same characteristics, including familiar styling and lots of equipment. We anticipate its arrival late in the year.
As we currently mentioned, the 2018 Honda HR-V will continue with the basically exact same attributes. This little crossover will be offered in three trim levels. Currently the base LX model includes plenty of features. There are things like 17-inch wheels, a tilt-and-telescoping wheel, and a height-adjustable motorist seat. When it comes to hi-tech features, a 5-inch central display screen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, and a four-speaker stereo with a CD gamer, an auxiliary jack and a USB port are all requirement. The next one is EX, which adds some great things like foglights, heated mirrors, keyless entry and ignition, heated front seats, automatic environment control, a 7-inch touchscreen, 6-speaker audio system and smartphone combination. Lastly, there will be a 2018 Honda HR-V EX-L Navi. This trim will include roofing system rails, leather upholstery, a navigation system with voice recognition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and satellite radio.
When it pertains to powertrain, the 2018 Honda HR-V will continue with the same 1.8-liter engine, which absolutely does not have in some aspects compared to the competitors. It has a max output of 141 horse power and includes a 6-speed handbook transmission in a basic version. On the other side, a CVT is optional. When it comes to performances, this little crossover has some of the weakest results in class, which is absolutely the main problem with this crossover. So, don’t be amazed if company choose to provide some more efficient engine in the future.
The 2018 Honda HR-V should come somewhere late in the year. It will feature basically the exact same cost which enters a range in between 20.000 and 27.000 dollars.
