The Honda HRV is likely to make its debut in World in 2019. It will rival against the likes of Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compas and Mahindra XUV 500. We expect to come with both petrol as well as diesel engines in its model line-up.
Honda has recently unveiled the updated version of the HRV at the GIIAS. The compact SUV now comes with slightly modified exteriors along with a minor feature update in its interiors. Since long, there have been numerous speculations regarding the launch of the HRV in World. We are expecting the Japanese automaker to launch this compact SUV in our country sometime during the year 2019. Upon its launch, it is going to compete against the likes of Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass and the Mahindra XUV 500. Its prices are estimated to fall in the range of INR 12 lakh to 16 lakh.
Honda HRV World Launch Date
Honda is expected to launch a slew of new models in the next 18 months or so. The HRV could be launched sometimes in the middle of the next calendar year. It will become the fourth crossover/SUV offering from the Japanese car maker in World after the WR-V, BR-V and CR-V.
Honda HRV Price in World
|Honda HR-V Base Model||Rs. 12 lakh|
|Honda HR-V Top Model||Rs. 16 lakh|
The upcoming SUV from Honda will slot in above the BR-V and the Hyundai Creta. While the official price list will be made public on the Honda HRV World launch date, it will definitely cost a bit more than BR-V. Expect prices to start around the Rs 14 lakh mark. Although similar in size to the Creta, it will be marketed as a more premium offering.
Honda HRV World Specifications
|Engine||1.5 L Petrol||1.5 L Diesel|
|Power||130 PS||100 PS|
|Torque||155 Nm||200 Nm|
|Transmission||6-speed Manual/CVT||6-speed Manual|
|Estimated Mileage||17-19 KMPL||20-22 KMPL|
In all probability, the HR-V will get the same engines as the Honda City. In the UK, the HR-V gets a 1.5 L petrol and a 1.6 L Diesel. However, for World, the Diesel engine is likely to be the 1.5 L unit that powers every Honda diesel car in World. Keeping the slightly higher price of the Honda HR-V in mind, Honda might consider launching the HRV small SUV with a 1.8 L petrol engine that will also power the upcoming Honda Civic. This engine makes about 135 BHP and 170 Nm.
Honda HRV World Mileage
|1.5 L Petrol||1.5 L Diesel|

The HR-V is similar in size to the Hyundai Creta, but it will cost more than the popular small SUV.
Honda HRV World Review – Exterior Design
The Honda HR-V or Vezel made its debut in 2013 at the Tokyo Motor Show. It is based on the 2013 Honda Urban SUV concept. It features sleek headlamps with projector units and LED daytime running lamps. The thick slab housing the Honda logo gets a chrome strip running through the middle. For the Worldn market, the entire slab could come finished in chrome. The side profile is characterised by body cladding for the wheels arches and a sloping roofline. Much like the Chevrolet Beat, the rear door handle is mounted high right next to the rear window. At the back, there are split tail lamps that could feature LED detailing. While the overall design is smart, the tail lights do look a tad oversized. While it is not big in terms of appearance, it will be more expensive than the similarly sized Hyundai Creta.
Honda HRV World Review – Interior Design
The HRV’s interior features typical Honda elements. The steering wheel is quite similar to Honda products currently on sale in World. So is the instrument cluster and the touch-sensitive auto aircon setup. Expect the HR-V to feature Honda’s 7-inch Digipad infotainment system currently available on the WR-V and City. The passenger side of the dashboard gets a unique three vent setup. Unlike the BR-V, the HR-V will only feature seating for 5 occupants. The HR-V boasts 393 litres of boot space.
Honda HRV World – Engine and Transmission Options
The HR-V could come with the same engine options as the Honda City – 1.5 L Petrol and 1.5 L Diesel. The petrol will get automatic and manual transmission options. While the diesel will be manual only. Also on offer could a bigger 1.8 L petrol that will power the upcoming Civic sedan. More details on the specifications of the upcoming Honda HRV in World as we get them. While the UK-spec HR-V gets a 1.6 L diesel, World is unlikely to get that engine. Exact details will be revealed on the Honda HRV World launch date.
Honda HRV World – Competition
The Honda HRV is going to fall in the compact SUV segment in World. With a price range of INR 14 lakh to 18 lakh, it will compete against the likes of Hyundai Creta, Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500 and the Hyundai Tucson.
