Did you know that the HRV was worn by a SUV in 1998? Maybe not since it never came to the US. Still, this was an awesome car so let me tell you a bit about it.
The original HRV began production in 1998 and was based on the supermini Honda Logo platform. It came with two base engines, both 1.6L fours making 103 HP or 123 HP if you got the VTEC.
This car was originally a Honda concept car called the J-WJ. Luckily the production version ended up pretty close to the original concept. The production model had many advanced features, like ABS, and electronic brakeforce distribution.
And it also was promoted with this ad which speaks for itself.
