Honda announced that in early 2019, a Sport variant will be given to the HR-V in foreign markets, which will make the model range at the top. The HR-V looks ravishing because of its gloss-black finish on the honeycomb front grille, fog light surrounds, and door mirrors. The HR-V is different from the previous models because of the unique 18-inch alloy wheels and dual exhaust.
The new HR-V gets 1.5-litre, four-cylinder turbo-petrol powertrain which gives out 182hp of power. The same powertrain is also present in the new-gen Civic in foreign markets. For some markets, the standard HR-V gets a 1.6-litre diesel powertrain, which came to India because it was available in the new Honda CR-V. To improve its handling, the new HR-V will get a revised damper setup and suspension.
The interior of the HR-V will get more supportive black and red seats with a black headlining. The remaining interior will be the same as the standard HR-V and the features of the top variants will remain as it is. The Honda has not yet revealed about the launch of HR-V in India. But Honda is going to launch the new Civic sedan to India by 2019.
