Anyone knows if the US version going to get the LED headlights and the LED DRLs? none of the pictures so far indicates it. They look good on the HRV in the other markets.

I don't think they will be on any HR-V in NA.

Perhaps it will be an accessory item?

I started reading around the HR-V Indonesian forums and apparently the DRL headlights costs roughly Rp 15,150,000 or $ 1160.

I hope its available, I don't mind upgading to jewel eye/led from halogen. I think they are available in China where cars are also LHD.

chances are you'll be able to send it out to independent businesses that can fix them but the problem with that is you lose out on any warranty that may come with the light assembly

I checked the official website of Honda Hr-V and they have not mentioned it there. Looks like its not there...not even in the accessories..That's a deal breaker for me right there... Besides I don't know when it will come..I wasted my time waiting for more than 6 months. Will look for another one now. Good luck guys on ur hunt!

The jewel eye/led combination light is a deal breaker for me too. Halogen is already out dated in my opinion. Maybe the jewel eye head light might be standard after 3 years, in their mid cycle refresh.

I think the halogens are fine, actually preferred by me. You can get premium bulbs and much less glare than LEDs (seen the new Corolla- yuk).

It seems most brands are offering LED lighting except Honda and Subaru. Not sure why it won't be offered on the HRV. My wife's SUV has LED lighting and it really makes a difference over halogen in my opinion.

Halogen lights looks for me as 17 th century,same as standard transmission.( I know we have some crazy standard lovers! common its not Porsche or camaro)I think the problem is again "sharp knife" Honda trying to make it as cheap as possible to cut the cost ,otherwise they must go higher Price Range which is unacceptable and we are simply will not buy HRV.

I am sure LEDs are the most modern choice, but the tall light housings just do not look right with them. Too much empty space makes it look like the lights shrunk. Now on cars that have long thin housings the LEDs look fantastic.


Plus I am happy Honda will keep the price of the HR-V affordable.

I think we will all look back 20 years from now and say, yeah, that was a car from the teens. You can tell my the LED lights. Everyone has them now. They are more of a fashion statement than a true feature. I'm over them.

Besides...in a couple of years LEDs may be "out" too. Will you buy a new car to get the latest and greatest thing at that point?

I do think that the LED lights are more about the look than the function. In that sense it seems kinda silly to focus so much on them. It's not something I really expect from a vehicle like the HRV.
