At the Paris Motor Show in 2014 he was still in prototype form, it is now clear: At the Geneva Motor Show ( March 3 to 15 2015) shows the production version of Honda HR-V. The Opel Mocha opponents based on the platform of the Civic and the small space miracle jazz. And this is where he will also step into the breach. Honda promises a lot of space in a small space and a ride that looks more like a sedan than an SUV. That the class of compact crossover is booming like never, but Honda is certainly not inconvenient.
In Europe, the new HR-V will be to have only front wheel drive. To start, there a brand new 1.5 - liter gasoline engine with 130 hp and the already known from Civic and CR - V 1.6 - liter diesel with 120 hp. Both engines are fitted as standard with a six-speed manual gearbox. For the gasoline engine and a CVT automatic transmission will be available. According to the new Honda HR-V should therefore come polished than the competition. This applies especially to the engine encapsulation and the overall noise level.
Solidity it should go in the interior of the new HR-V. The Japanese offer three trim levels Comfort, Sport and Executive. At the two higher trim levels Honda 's new Android-based infotainment system with seven-inch touch screen series. The app-based system includes traffic reports in real-time, streaming music services and Internet access. In Comfort, there is a five-inch touch screen. All HR-V variants are fitted as standard with a city emergency braking. If we choose again the Sport versions or executive, you get the full range of assistance and safety systems. These include an intelligent cruise control, a collision warning system, a lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, as well as a high-beam assistant. Honda's system uses a combination of radar and camera technology.
As the Jazz will have the in-house Magic Seats System, the new HR-V. It offers various possibilities for adjustment and folding the second row of seats and among other things allows a completely flat load floor. To squeeze out the maximum amount of space from the HR - V, Honda's engineers also transplanted the fuel tank under the front seats. The HR-V should therefore come up with the best space of the class. Also, the boot capacity from 453 to 1023 liters can be proud of. The Honda HR-V will have its market launch in summer 2015. Prices should be called at the Geneva Motor Show. (sw)
