Honda has revealed the first images of the brand’s new European version of its small SUV ahead of its world premiere at the 2014 Paris Motor Show next month.
The HR-V is Honda’s new entry into the small SUV segment.
The exterior design of the new HR-V prototype is meant to echo that of a coupé, with sharp lines that link the upper body with the stable and planted lower body.
The HR-V features a centre fuel tank location to create "one of the most spacious and adaptable small SUV cabins". Honda 'magic seats' make use of this by enabling a wide range of seating configurations, with the ability to fold the second row seats completely flat for added luggage space.
The HR-V will go on sale in the UK in summer 2015.
Leon Brannan, head of car at Honda UK, said: “The HR-V is a very welcome addition to our current model line up, it is a very popular and growing market segment that appeals to both retail and corporate customers.“
“The dealer network are very much looking forward to receiving the car in their showrooms and every UK dealer will be making the trip to Paris to see the car on show“.
