I think those engines make a lot of sense for this platform, which could easily be adapted to add batteries without significantly reducing interior space.

Hopefully there are updates to the CVT as well, or the hybrid may help reduce strain on the existing

That's almost the size of a CRV. I wonder why it is that they make the newer models bigger after every redesign. It's not just Honda either, I see it on most car manufacturers.

People always complained about the cargo space and legroom after they get a car. If you seen an old first gen CRV on the road, they are tiny

Don't love the long slope on the rear if that stays, but the drivetrain is my bigger question

Is that a serious comment in one of those articles about a manual element? If be all about that

I can understand the need for bigger vehicles back then as there wasn't much of a selection, but today Honda has the HR-V, CR-V, Pilot, and Passport. People can just move up to a bigger model now.

HRV is competing with others in the same size and price range. Those will also get bigger. The bigger hondas might be out of some people's price range.

As all of us know. The HRV is built on the FIT platform. The FIT itself is a terrible ride. With HONDA discontinuing FIT production after 2020. Does anyone know or heard if HONDA plans on developing a new platform for the HRV. Also, does anyone have any thoughts.

Uh, you've got your information wrong.

The Fit production isn't being discontinued, but its RELEASE in the US will. Meaning, while the US won't get any new Fits, the rest of the world will still see Fits/Jazz.

Also, I have a 2010 Fit and I feel that while the original suspension was firm, I’d take that over extra soft suspension anyday. Ever since I noticed that I get nauseous when a car rolls side to side and even back/forth (b/f turned out to be my father pulsing the gas pedal some 20 yrs ago), I’ve made it a point to reduce body roll and ducking/diving as much as possible. And unfortunately, that requires even firmer suspension than stock.

They seem to be switching to a more angular look for their line ups.
