It’s been a long time coming for Honda’s second-generation HR-V. We recently took the Japanese carmaker’s latest crossover offering for a spin inside Kawayan Cove in Nasugbu, Batangas, for our cover shoot. The HR-V looks and drives just as beautifully as the picturesque backdrop we chose for our drive.
The new HR-V boasts an exterior that, put simply, just works. It looks good--from its complex yet stylish headlight design all the way to its rear end. Interior-wise, there’s an impressive amount of space to work with, especially with the number of ways you can reconfigure your seats depending on your cargo. The HR-V really takes its crossover label seriously, as the interior is just as versatile as anything out there in the market.
This highly anticipated crossover is full of premium features as well. Folding side mirrors, touchscreen audio display, electric parking brake, and hill-start assist are just some of the bonuses found on the top-of-the-line 1.8 EL variant we took out for a drive.
If our experience with the new Honda HR-V is any indication of how it will be received by consumers, then it’s definitely going to compete toe-to-toe with the best that the crossover market has to offer.
