That's anybody's guess. My guess would be they would get theirs faster because they don't have the delayed Mexican production problems.

I liked the Outlander Sport and it could work for me. It just never gets good objective reviews, so I am hesitant to choose it.

Actually , it has been a couple of years since I looked at an Outlander Sport.


Checking it's dimensions it is pretty close except it has less cargo capacity, but has higher ground clearance (8.5 vs.7.2). It is an inch higher in overall height.
I will have to stop and look at it again to maybe get an idea of how the HR-V will appear size wise. Being higher off the ground a bit and more upright styling may make it seem larger.

So I've recently been reading about this car because we are currently looking for a vehicle in this size.

From what I've read some dealers have already gotten some HRVs and are hiding them out back awaiting launch in early February after the January sales.

This is the flyer with Australian specs:
https://hrv.honda.com.au/assets/pdf/hrv_flyer.pdf
Does it differ dramatically from what's in the states?

Also what is:
- LED guide style tail lights
- Lane watch
- Remote key FOB operation (how does it differ from "smart entry")

Looking forward to having a look at this as well as the Renault Captur also launching in February and Mazda CX-3 which is scheduled for March (although it may be delayed).

Hi Ninja,
Where have you heard that dealers have them? Do you mean in Australia?

Cool. Let us know when you get to see some and get us some pictures.
I am especially interested in the LX interior pictures.


Thanks!

Thanks for sharing the flyer, it's nice to see the colors they are offering "down under". Too bad you're not getting the nice Vezel green color, but at least you are getting the good looking red that I hope we'll get here in the US.
