Greetings from central Massachusetts,
just wondering if anyone knows if our state side hr-v will come w/ jewel type day time running lights; like the hr-v that had them as shown in an internet hr-v add a few months ago. The LA reveal hr-v doesn't seem to have them. I showed my wife the add and she said,"you like this car cause of the drl's"... to which I said, " yup". Sure would be disappointing if we didn't get them. The internet add must have been a European hr-v. Why does everybody else always get the cool and good looking stuff while continue to always get stuck w/ the boring, plain, unexciting stuff?
I think it all depends on what different markets need for pricing levels. The North American HR-V has to be sufficiently less than the CR-V to sell well. So that means the more expensive lighting has to be let go to keep the prices where they need to be.
In other parts of the world "premium" models work better. If you translate their prices to US dollars, they are pretty expensive. This allows for more upscale items.
