As part of the light redesign that took place this year, Honda is expanding the range of its HR-V with a new sporty declination, the HR-V Sport.
This innovation is powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline VTEC turbo. It has an output of 182 hp and a torque of 220 to 240 Nm, depending on the selected gear type. Customers can choose between a six-speed manual transmission with 240Nm of torque on the key or a continuously variable CVT transmission that limits torque to 220Nm. The shock absorbers have been redesigned to ensure a more dynamic road behavior, less penalized by cash movements. The management also benefits from new attitudes. The performance has not been reported yet.
The HR-V Sport is also a set of aesthetic devices that emphasize its sporty dimension. It includes a black honeycomb grid, 18-inch wheels, splitters and side skirts, chrome trim on the grille and tailgate, black wheel arches and headlights. Standard LEDs complete the outboard package. The program is limited to a black headliner and a two-tone leather upholstery that blends black and dark red.
The delivery of HR-V Sport will take place in spring 2019. The price is not yet known.
