I think that the 2.0-liter gas turbo would be a bit of overkill for the HR-V. I'd love it, but I just don't think it is very likely, unless they decide to make some kind of special edition or performance model.

It sure would, i'm afraid it would take pricing up higher, much higher than it should be for this segment, which of course will be a bad thing.

Turbo eh, I wonder if they would go 2.0L Earth Dreams? or 1.5L Turbo 4???

http://world.honda.com/news/2013/4131119VTEC-TURBO-Gasoline-Turbo-Engine/index.html

I'm leaning towards the 1.5...
Usually those smaller displacement engines with turbo have great low end power output to get vehicles off the line easier so i can see it being an engine option in the HRV. But we need some power charts to see what they are really like...


1.5 L 4-cylinder direct injection gasoline turbo engine / 1.0 L 3-cylinder direct injection gasoline turbo engine
These are next-generation compact engines that combine a base engine with a newly designed framework, the VTEC variable valve train system with thoroughly reduced friction, a turbocharger with a low moment of inertia and high responsiveness, and direct injection technology to achieve good balance between high output and torque, above those of conventional naturally-aspirated engines, along with excellent fuel economy.

Now that's awesome, nothing better than a compact utility vehicle that also comes as a hybrid, i know people that live in american cities would love to have that.

That video looks like it was staged. The camera just happens to pan to the right ant there is the HR-V doing a slloooooww drive by. I think the driver knew he was being filmed and wanted to show off the car. On the plus side, at least it shows that the HR-V can do light duty towing

I wouldn't doubt that's what happened, but there are people who have full time jobs doing this stuff so maybe they just know where to be? Could be either one really. But if you see a video of a test mule, likely that car maker wants you to see it, otherwise they would be testing on closed off or private roads.
