First sight of the new Honda HR-V

Honda has revealed the first images of the brand’s new European version of its small SUV ahead of its world premiere at the 2014 Mondial de l’Automobile in Paris next month. The HR-V is Honda’s new entry into Europe’s fast-growing small SUV segment.

The unique exterior design of the new HR-V prototype echoes that of a coupé, with sharp, dynamic lines that link the sleek upper body with the stable and planted lower body. This coupé-esque elegance is achieved without compromising the interior practicality of the car.

The HR-V features a centre fuel tank location to create one of the most spacious and adaptable small SUV cabins. Honda Magic Seats® make use of this versatility by enabling a wide range of seating configurations, with the ability to fold the second row seats completely flat for added cargo space.

Further information on the new European HR-V will be announced during Honda’s press conference at the 2014 Mondial de l’Automobile in Hall 3, at 16.45 CET on Thursday 2 October.
