Australia in February

From what I have been reading, it looks like the Aussies will be getting the HR-V in February. Wish and hope it could be that soon for the US.


On the other hand, they do say "launched" so I guess that could mean they don't actually get the cars then.

From what I gather February is when it will be on sale in Australia. I assume that does not mean on the dealer lots, but technically you could walk in and put a deposit on one.


It has been said over and over again on the net that we will know more in Feb. So you can expect either a press release by the end of the month or maybe something at the Chicago Auto show.

I was just daydreaming about what happens in Australia will reflect on when we will get the cars. They aren't getting them from Mexico so it's a whole different ballgame.
Besides, they are using words like debut and launch which is what we have been hearing too and we know that has nothing to do with sale dates. Did you find a website that said they will be taking orders in February? I'd like the link.

I should add that if the Aussies get cars much earlier we should hopefully have some good test drive reviews to read while we wait.


Ah...here is an article indicating actual sales may to taking place in February in Australia.....
http://performancedrive.com.au/2015-...n-market-0311/
"Showroom entry will kick off in February." May the test drive reviews begin then!

Here is another promising article from Australia about reviews.
http://www.themotorreport.com.au/604...ures-confirmed
I like this last line...
"Watch for TMR's review of the new HR-V to come in early February."

Yes. And they are getting the same engine although with different emission standards so that will affect MPG.
I saw an Outlander Sport today and I maybe in the minority but I hope the HRV is smaller. I understand length is about the same but there is no way to get good MPG out of a vehicle that size.

Good point about the emissions affecting gas mileage figures. Would be good if we matched the 34-35 mpg they are estimating.

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.

If they aren't on dealer lots in February but you can still put down a deposit for one, when do you think people should expect their delivery? March?
