2016 Honda HR-V – Exterior and Interior Design
Honda has borrowed heavily from the fit and introduced a center mounted fuel tank, which adds more room for passengers. Additionally, there is also Honda’s Magic Seat that enables the seats to be folded flat for more cargo space. There will be three trim variants offering different and upgraded technology features, namely LX, EX and EX-L. On higher trim levels, we can expect leather furnished seats, a touchscreen center console and a high on utility dashboard.
Technological features on the standard model of 2016 Honda HR-V will include power door, power mirrors, power windows, rear view camera, tilt and telescoping steering wheel. Infotainment system will be characterized by a great audio system, Pandora radio and Bluetooth connectivity for smartphone integration. On higher trim levels, there will be SiriusXM radio, heated front seats, navigation, etc.Visually, the 2016 Honda HR-V is a very attractive vehicle that is different from both CR-V and Fit. The over all blocky rear end and heavy cut angles have given way to much smoother exterior design that makes it look more elegant. It has received an overall sporty visual treatment with prominent horizontal lines and stance like that of a coupe. On its front, there is a large grille designed like a honeycomb with two tiers and has LED-equipped headlights to increase the car’s aggressiveness quotient. This vehicle will ride on 17-inch alloy wheels that look superb when in motion.
