You definitely got your first wish.If it comes with the IRS and K20 engine of the Civic, I might be able to tolerate the body design.
The possible engines for the 2023 HR-V could be:Larger, more powerful (maybe w/the CRV/Civic 180hp 1.5L turbo)? Interesting. I'll wait until I see pics of the interior and confirmation of the powertrain.
Wasn't the CRV based on the Civic?Since it's based on the Civic, will there be any assembled at the Greensburg IN Civic plant, or will all of the US-market HR-V's still be produced in Mexico?
Will the 2023 HR-V still be classified as a Truck in the Honda sales statistics?
That's what I am afraid of. I am still driving a Fit as of today, but looking to buy the new HRV when it's available, because I absolutely love the magic seat features and reply on them day in and day out. For example, of the back seat is always up so I can put the shopping cart directly in, w/o unloading and unfolding to store it in the car.I think magic seats will disappear for sure. They are only possible if the fuel tank is under the front seats and the rear suspension is in the form of a simple beam. This is not the case in the co-platform Civic.
