Official Honda HRV Information

Official Information on the United States Domestic Market (USDM) Honda HRV is now available for LX, EX, and EX-L models, limited to what you'll find linked below until Honda launches it's full HRV website in the coming months:

Pricing

While we wait for official HR-V pricing information to release speculation around it has begun with the top of the link model suggested to be priced up to $22k. Many other mentions of what pricing could be throughout all the HR-V trim levels can be found here.

Starting manufacturer's suggested retail price, including destination charge, for the 2015 Fit is up to $16,315. This is for an LX with newly revised six-speed manual transmission.
The lowest starting retail price for a 2015 Fit with a CVT that a driver operates like an automatic is $17,115.
But it's worth noting that even a 2015 Fit with CVT and all the new, premium amenities, which was the test car, tops out at less than $21,600.

Top of the line is $22K! I think it going sell well even with the 130 h.p. engine. If Honda would add a turbo to it; it would on fire in terms of sales but this is Honda America and no turbocharged engine for over 20 years!


There is no mention of AWD as an option; but I sure Honda will add it in for the Northern states. If not; it will not sell well in these snow climates.

MotorTrend Reviews the HR-V

Although this review includes the Vezel and not an HR-V it's still the best it gets being the first American publication to release a first drive review which you can read in it's entirety here and discuss in this thread.

For my test drive, Honda loaned me a front-drive Vezel S, whose standard paddle shifters and 17-inch alloys shod with 215/55 Dunlop SP Sport Maxx 050 summer tires make it the sportiest non-hybrid variant. Initial observation: Despite weighing a hundred or so pounds more than the Fit, the similarly powered Vezel didn't seem any slower. Zipping around the busy streets of Tokyo and merging into expressway traffic presented no problems at all for this 129-hp crossover. In fact, it never felt wanting for more power, a tribute to the nicely sorted CVT. Further, it's much quieter than a Fit, even with the 1.5L pegged at redline. Honda notes that the Vezel utilizes "high-performance soundproofing," and it shows. The gutsier, less-buzzy 1.8L HR-V should prove even quicker and quieter. In terms of fuel economy, expect the HR-V to return numbers slightly thirstier than the Civic's 30/39 mpg city/highway.

Red, if it's the Fit-o Milano/Alfa-Romeo/Ferrari/Maserati Red ... but not the JDM "Premium Deep Porco Rosso Pearl."

Otherwise it'll be whatever white they make available ... actually, that would be a good name for it, "Whatever White" ... vis a vis "White Orchid Pearl" or any of the other silly appellations that manufacturers give their colors.

(It's a cold, grey, cloudy day here in Maine ... cynicism reigns :eek: )

I also can't wait to see what colors they make available to us .
One good way to get an idea, an obvious way, is to look at what they already offer on vehicles within the same suggested price range. Of course with that we won't know for sure, but at least it give us something to hope for :D

Ahhhhh ... waiting for the bright sunshine ... and the actual colors ... the actual colors on the actual cars. They'll all look different in the bright sunshine.

P.S. I really dislike fake, bland, metallic reds ... almost as much as I dislike Candy Apple Red. If no Fire Engine/Milano Red ... it'll just have to be plain ol' white.

That the problem i have with seeing new colors you never get a real look at them until you see them in person but at least seeing the selection online first you can get an idea of what colors you'll be more likely to stick with come time to sign off on one.

It's funny how when I consider replacing my current silver car, different colors really appeal to me.
But looking how sharp the HR-V looks in silver with the black trim and grill , I keep going back to it.

Same here, I'm so bored with seeing all the silver, grey, white and black cars on the road, it's really depressing that cars today aren't more colorful, I wish they would offer more "fun" colors.

I was like that too, still have a silver car from the era where silver was preferred.

These days I could never see myself going for just a simple silver, some color with more life to it will be what I prefer.

In September 2009, I bought a «grey» Crv ... When the new year model showed up, with many engine performance improvements, it was a real «liberation» to switch from a less 3rd age colour to a lively one (in March 2010) : «metal sage opal», that is !
Anything but a Grey !

I just want to know how soon I can get the vehicle. I'm ready now! (I have a first gen crv and it's been awesome!)
Aside from what shows up online (which may be slow for now) your other best resource will be your local dealer.
where about are you located?

Not a lot of vivid colors!


Two blacks, two silvers, one deep red (ugh), one blue, one green, one white. Where is the bright red? brown?


Color available are just too conservative!

Just don't forget that this is just the start and Honda has been known to act on consumer disappointment...more so in the case when it's an issue with lining their pockets. So maybe they might come out with better colors depending on how sales and interest goes?

But this is a Honda and there are much more important things to worry about.

I wouldn't get too worried about colors just yet. The colors shown in the first post are the Vezel's and I'm sure Honda chooses colors based on the market the car will be sold in.

That being said, we know the Vezel is a mix of "vehicle" and "bezel" which refers to the sloping faces of a cut stone. I thought because of the gemstone connection they should rename the colors like Emerald Green, Ruby Red, Diamond Silver, Sapphire Blue, etc.

I'm in Mass. I wonder if Honda has any kind of pattern of how they roll out cars. These are going to be made in Mexico, I think I read - so not like being good to be near Marysville! Maybe they'll start in the north because of the winter weather? My dealer didn't know.. he just said "Spring" - and to sign on for info on some Honda website, which I did and I have heard nothing back.. I'm dying for this vehicle!

I like to think of Vezel as a cross between vessel and weazel ... with a suitable Japanese pronunciation :)
