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.

This is the flyer with Australian specs:
Does it differ dramatically from what's in the states?
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.
The green and blue are my favorite colors. Noticed that 6 out of the 7 colors shown in that brochure are either metallic or pearlescent; fine print indicates that buyer must pay additional cost for those colors. Hope Honda doesn't pull a dirty trick like that here in the states...
I noticed that as well with only the 1 color not costing extra. Why not just incorporate the price into the car and not call out an extra cost for the colors the majority of the cars will be?
I hope they go with colors closer the the CR-V line rather than the Fit line. I think the more "mature" colors will look better than the colors currently offered on the Fit.
I noticed the "high beam support system", that's the first I've heard of that feature, I don't think we'll get that here in the U.S.
What is it?
On "page" 7 of the website or page 13 of the brochure it shows the feature. It looks like it detects a car coming at you and turns off your high-beams for you.
NinjaPanda, thank you for your detailed review. I think it's a good reminder to those of us here in NA to be brought back down to reality with this vehicles. We've been teased so much for so long it's natural to build up in our minds this car we're all really excited about and gloss over that (at least here) that it's going to be an entry level vehicle and won't be without it's faults.
