Honda showcases HR-V small SUV prototype

2

Honda has revealed the first images of the brand's new European version of its small SUV ahead of its world premiere at the Paris Motor Show 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.

The HR-V will go on sale in the UK during the Summer of 2015.

Leon Brannan, head of car said "The HR-V is a very welcome addition to our current model line up, it is a very popular and growing market segment that appeals to both retail and corporate customers."

"The dealer network are very much looking forward to receiving the car in their showrooms and every UK dealer will be making the trip to Paris to see the car on show".

Further information on the new European HR-V will be announced during Honda's press conference on October 2.
