“But more importantly for the Honda Australia business, HR-V continues to strike a chord with private buyers, where it leads the Small SUV segment with almost 83 per cent of its total sales over the past 12 months coming from the private sector.”
The HR-V is now over two years old and here is due to facelift, expected sometime next year. For now, all other equipment and spec is still powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder petrol with 105kW / 172Nm and CVT the only transmission available.
HONDA’S SMALL SUV the HR-V, which sits behind the Mazda CX-3 and Mitsubishi ASX for overall sales, will now come with satellite navigation as standard across the range. Pricing will remain the same, however, from $ 24,990 (+ ORC) for base model VTi up to $ 34,340 (+ ORC) for top-spec VTi-L with advanced driver assist system (ADAS).
Previously, the VTi and VTi-S models missed out on the feature. Honda claims the addition of satellite navigation comes in alongside an “updated audio system with 7.0-inch color touchscreen”, although the 7.0-inch touchscreen was standard across the range already.
