US Honda HR-V 2023 fully revealed, likely to launch globally as ZR-V
Honda’s US division overnight completely unveiled its new car 2023 HR-VAT crossover, which we believe will be sold in the rest of the world as ZR-V.
In mid-May, Honda Europe confirmed that it will add a new crossover to its range in 2023. Dubbed the ZR-V, the new model will sit in the middle of the range. Jazz-based HR VUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU and CR-VAT.
We have every reason to suspect the ZR-V will be a slightly tweaked version of the car that will be marketed in the United States as the new HR-V.
The the exterior of the US HR-V was revealed in early April, but the company did not provide any pictures of the interior nor provide any details on the powertrain, dimensions or specifications. Those shortcomings have now been rectified.
At launch in the United States, the new HR-V will have only one engine option: 2.0 liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine do 118kW at 6500 rpm and 187Nm at 4200 rpm.
It is connected separately to a continuous variable transmissionbut buyers can choose between front- or all-wheel drive.
Hill Descent Control is standard on both front- and all-wheel drive models and allows the driver to select a constant downhill speed between 3 and 19km/h.
The ZR-V models sold in Europe will be exclusively equipped with a hybrid powertrain, but details about this have yet to be announced.
Based on the latest Civic platform, the US HR-V skips the Magic Seat Cheat elsewhere, but it has more interior space, as well as MacPherson strut front suspension and multi-link rear suspension. independent link. .
The US HR-V is Length 4567mm, Width 1839mm, height from 1610mm to 1621mmand ride on a Wheelbase 2654mm.
This means it’s 232mm longer, 49mm wider, at least 20mm taller and has a 44mm longer wheelbase than the global HR-V.
It’s also not much smaller than the current CR-V, but filings in China show that the next-generation CR-V will be 4703mm long, 1866mm wide, 1690mm tall and ride on a 2700mm wheelbase.
Once the CR-V launch is complete, the new global US HR-V/ZR-V will sit right between its two cousins.
The new Stateside HR-V shows the Civic influence most clearly in the newly revealed cabin. Like the Civic, the HR-V’s dashboard has a mesh stripe that extends from the center vent to the passenger side door frames.
This isn’t a straight lift, though, as the HR-V has a more rounded dashboard and a different center tunnel with the traditional gear lever sticking out in the middle.
The top-of-the-range models come with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone mirroring, and a 9.0-inch infotainment touchscreen.
Lower variants get a 7.0-inch touchscreen and only wired CarPlay and Android Auto. A 7.0-inch multi-information display is standard equipment on the US HR-V model.
Standard Stateside safety features include a wide-angle front-facing camera, traffic jam assist, front knee bags, traffic sign recognition, and driver attention monitoring. Improvements have been made to adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist.
Depending on trim level, the HR-V rides on 17-inch wheels with 215/60 tires or 18-inch rims with 225/55 rubber.
