Have you been iffy pulling the trigger on a brand-new crossover? Well, this news might help you come to a decision.
Honda Cars Philippines (HCPI) has announced that the 2023 Honda HR-V RS Turbo will be part of its display at this year’s Philippine International Motor Show (PIMS). This brings the mode’s variant count to three, including the base HR-V V 1.5 S and HR-V 1.5 V Turbo launched in April this year.
The brand has yet to reveal any specifics, but you can count on this release to come powered by the same 1.5-liter turbocharged gasoline engine capable of 175hp and 240Nm of torque as the 1.5 V Turbo.
While no alterations are expected under the hood, the RS version will likely boast a handful of aesthetic enhancements aimed at giving the subcompact crossover a more energetic appearance—perhaps different wheels and a few extra pieces of trim here and there, as well as RS badging. Note that the image you see in this story is of an RS unit in Indonesia.
