It will share a platform with the Civic

To get an idea of ​​the possible benefits of the Honda HR-V we can take as a starting point the Honda Civic. The company has taken as a reference the sedan that currently has a 2.0-liter engine, which in turn generates 158 hp y 187 Nm de torque.

With this in mind, we can deduce that the Honda HR-V will not do badly, and will be able to gain even more power. But based on what we see in the Civic from 11th generationthere would be an increase in 12% in horsepower, and 8.5% torque over the existing HR-V.

Needless to say, the incoming model will face major market competitors such as Toyota Corolla Cross, Mazda CX-30 and Volkswagen Taos. However, the Honda HR-V will have much to give, especially in dynamism, as we would have a Civic converted into an SUV.
