First launched in 2014, the Honda HR-V is already 6 years old and is set to receive a new generation model. A new media report claims that the second generation Honda HR-V is already in advanced stage of development. In fact, the new model is claimed to make global debut in early 2021 (around March 2021).
The project is being headed by the headquarters and it includes important changes in the form of design and mechanics. The report further claims that the new model will have coupe profile and will grow in size. Adding to it, the SUV will receive a new hybrid engine.
The Japanese media reports that the level of evolution of the Honda HR-V 2021 will be similar to that of the new generation Fit. The new model will be slightly larger, measuring around 4.4 meters in length, 1.79 meters in width and 1.59 meters in height. In the current form, the HR-V is 4.32 meters, 1.77 meters and 1.58 meters in length, width and height respectively. However, the wheelbase will be maintained at around 2.61 meters.
Similar to the new generation Fit, the next-gen Honda HR-V will receive the 1.5-litre petrol engine with two electric motors. In the hatchback, the initial movement up to 80kmph is made by the first electric motor that is called the propulsion engine. For greater power demand, the petrol engine starts to work to transmit the rotation to the second electric motor, which is called the generation engine.
Not just next-gen Honda HR-V, the Japanese automaker is also working on an all-new sub-4 meter SUV. The new model will directly rival the Toyota Raize compact SUV. The report further claims that the new sub-4 meter SUV will make global debut in April 2020.
