2018 Honda HR-V Redesign

http://carslane.com/2018-honda-hr-v/

Kind of makes sense with their 4 year redesign model, the the Vezel was out 2014, while the N.A. HR-V has only been out 2016

So...unchanged for the most part? It's all speculation I would assume, but I'm not surprised by any of it.

Queue the complaining about no 1.5T engine...

2016 HR-V EX 6MT - Purchased 4/14/16.

Unfortunately looks more like rumours right now.
This link shows they are looking at the Turbo from the Civic for 2018

http://nseavoice.com/cars/2018-honda...920017616.html

The details are scarce at the moment but we are anticipating the HR-V to pick up the 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder unit that was introduced through the tenth generation Civic. This is likely to be the outcome, especially after seeing the 2017 CR-V being granted the same engine.
The fact that the HR-V Facelift is considerably lighter than the CR-V and built on the Fit’s platform makes it more exciting to see how it will perform on the turbocharged mill. The motor is expected to pump out 190hp and it may have enough to aid the HR-V in returning more than 40mpg in fuel economy

We have an HRV EX and just got a civic Touring about 3 months ago. Can say from comparison, it is a crime they did not put the 1.5T in the HRV, the extra low end torque makes a significant difference and the 1.5T engine, IMO, seems to run smoother.

This doesn't look like anything new. This is basically the concept drawing of the current HR-V in the USA, right down to the rims. I wouldn't expect a 1.5L Turbo in the HR-V EVER! That's gone to the Civic and CR-V. When the Fit gets and updated engine, so will the HR-V. Nothing changed from the 2016-2017 Fit with the exception of a new color. The same thing happened with the HR-V. So look for a change in the Fit...

Any word on the 2021 redesign? Hoping to keep my car at least that long.

It's a bit unique as the norm would be shared platforms usually share the same engines. But in this case the HR-V shares the Fit platform but not its engines. So I'm not so sure as the Fit motor upgrades, so goes the HR-V.

Couldn't agree more. We have an EXL w/nav. and a 2016 Civic Touring. Would seriously consider trading in the Civic for a 1.5 Turbo HRV. It would be really nice if they had a HRV Touring. Also prefer the Civic Garmin navigation system.

I could easily see Honda doing a Touring to stave off another year of a redesign. The big question though is would they put the 1.5T in that, or in the Acura version (CDX?) of the HRV? Keep in mind the EX-L goes for around $26K USD, and to make sense at the $30K level for Acura you'd need some significant differentiation. I'd suspect they'd keep the turbo for Acura, along with the nanny driving features (lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, etc.) and probably a higher grade of leather. I'd also expect Acura to get the LEDs, dual climate control, real carpeting, a better transmission, and maybe even bigger tires. So what would be left for a Touring HRV? How about they get the nanny driver, upgraded tire/wheels and an updated nav system and the LEDs.

I stopped reading after this.


Honda announced it is going to redesign numerous models in the following years and one of them is HR-V.


The key word is YEARS. Who knows when the next redesign will be. Who knows what the next design will be. You know who knows? The engineers and designers at Honda and that is it. For anyone to write an article about future versions is nothing but speculation and wishful thinking.
