Earlier this spring, Honda gave us a sneak peak of the inside of the 2023 HR-V, which showed that the mid-size SUV is the perfect combination of sporty and versatile. Recently, the automaker has provided us additional information on the new 2023 HR-V, such as its responsive powertrain, upscale cabin, and several other noteworthy details.
The all-new 2023 Honda HR-V appeals to young, active buyers with its stylish, sporty exterior and roomy, future-rich interior. All-new high-tech interior features standard digital instrumentation display, available wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.
The second-generation HR-V is more comfortable and fun-to-drive than its predecessor, and features more rear seat legroom and one of the largest cargo areas in its class. For a smoother ride, HR-V’s wheelbase has been extended and its tracks are significantly wider, creating an athletic stance and improving stability. Class-leading safety features include standard Honda Sensing, next-gen front airbags, as well as standard side-impact and front occupant knee airbags.
“The new Honda HR-V is just the right size for young, active buyers looking for a sporty driving experience, and plenty of space and utility for an adventurous weekend escape,” said Michael Kistemaker, assistant vice president, Honda National Sales, American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “This new HR-V will welcome a new generation of customers to Honda, and we look to grow its position as the segment leader with young buyers, first-time buyers, and multicultural buyers.”
