Just heard that the HR-V will be making its European debut at the Paris Motor Show in the first week of October.

Word is the Euro HR-V will show up with a 1.6L Diesel, a 1.5L NA Petrol and a 1.0L Turbo Petrol engine...

I'd say thats likely to reflect North American choices as well just minus the diesel...

For North America I would rather see a 1.8 Petrol or a 1.5 Turbo Petrol as an alternative to the 1.5 NA Petrol, not the 1.0 Turbo. The 1.5 NA Petrol and the 1.0 Turbo are about the same HP I believe (somebody correct me if I am wrong)

I hope not. Fuel prices are much higher in Europe. The Diesel 1.6 alternative for Europe has a decent low torque and we would not have that in NA.

With the petrol options having about 130hp, this car would be one of the weakest. 0-60 in 12 or 13 sec would be a bad joke. The car is about the weight of the Civic, I would expect it to start with the same 1.8l engine - at least.

I wonder where the European HR-V would be built? If it is Celaya, I am rather surprised that the car will be available in Europe ahead of NA.

Do you not trust the manufacturing in India and China?

I also agree that the diesel won't be coming to NA.

I'm glad that we have a firm timeline of when we will get to see the completed HRV now.

We could also look to the Indonesian choices. They're pegged to get the 1.5 and the 1.8.

Speaking of Indonesia they're expected to have a factory producing HR-V's as well, its possible thats where European supply will be coming from...

The point I was trying to make is that I am surprised that Europe is getting the HR-V before North-America does. Particularly if the European HR-V's are produced in North America.

Not necessarily if it's just being shown in Paris. I read in Japanese articles that it will go on sale in Europe in 2015. There is a plant in UK that builds the Jazz (Fit) for Europe.

sure sounds like a good facility to use for the HRV if they can.
