The new Honda HR-V is the perfect mix of a sporty coupé with the power and versatility of an SUV. No matter where you are travelling, this vehicle will get you there safely and in style. I took a test drive in the new HR-V 1.5 Comfort at Honda East Rand.


The new Honda HR-V has a dynamic, sophisticated look with a lot of attitude! This, combined with its defined, sleek upper body, creates a sense of sports car and SUV in one.

The seats are positioned high in the vehicle ensuring wide visibility. Driver essentials like the front fog lights, 17” alloy wheels, shark fin antenna and tailgate spoiler grasp the attention that this new HR-V deserves.

LED indicators are located in the door mirrors, while highly attractive LED Daytime Running Lights, LED auto-adjust headlights and LED tail lights look stylish and create a futuristic glow.

Every bit of this SUV radiates adventure. From the rear door handles that are hidden just behind the window, to the stunning black grille and trimming; it’s clear that the new HR-V is exactly the kind of vehicle you need.


The new Honda HR-V was designed to create comfort with the soft-touch dashboard, centre console, stitch detail and black and chrome accents. Its cleverly placed compartments and streamlined design maximise storage space. “Magic Seats” that fold in various configurations, together with the extra-wide tailgate make transporting everything so much easier.

The engine emits 88kW of power and 145Nm of torque with a fuel consumption of approximately 6.3 litres per 100km. Safety features include rear view camera, parking sensors, Anti-lock Braking System, Hill Start Assist, and more.
