Word getting out the past couple of hours is the BIG announcement will include the new Civic.

Civic, Civic, and Civic only... Sigh... I was hoping for pricing on the HR-V. One interesting point is there has been speculation here that the turbo would find its way into the HR-V this fall. The speaker noted that the Civic would be the initial deployment of the turbo. So, if you want the turbo in an HR-V, my guess would be wait for the CRX or maybe the 2017 HR-V.

Dammit, you are right. All about the Civic after all the opening hype about "Year of the Honda".


Civic is old news, rehashed decade in, decade out.

As expected. Never got excited about the "special announcement" for that reason.
Thought it might be the Ridgeline....but highly doubted it would be anything about the HR-V. That was LA.


I actually don't expect any special announcement from Honda. I just think it will be a simultaneous ad campaign..... rolled into the intro date and pricing at that time.

I see no reason why Honda would add a turbo option anytime soon. Maybe look for it in two to three years.

Think about it though, the HRV has created more demand and interest than any other Honda in years. If it ever gets the Turbo, it won't be at least until the mid cycle update, but even then it may be too early.

When does the new engine factory in Anna, Ohio starting up? They're making the turbo VTEC engines right?

Agree it won't be this model year, but I don't think it will be a couple of years before it is installed in the HR-V.

Is anyone going to the NY show? Would be nice to see if they are letting anyone closer to getting into an HR-V.

The doors stay locked until it goes on sale. This is the case with all vehicles and the HRV was locked when I saw it at the recent Philadelphia auto show.
