Honda already makes one of the world’s most popular SUVs, the award-winning Honda CR-V, and now the Japanese automaker is doubling down—the HR-V, a new Honda SUV, will be introduced here in the States at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show on November 19. Here at Vann York Honda, we still haven’t had a chance to see the HR-V in person, so we’re just as excited as all of you for its upcoming release.
Honda has high hopes for the new crossover vehicle, too. “The HR-V will serve as the entry point to the Honda light truck lineup…competing in an all-new segment for the brand,” the company announced in a press release. “Built on the same global compact platform that underpins the critically-acclaimed Fit, the HR-V will feature a versatile and spacious interior thanks to an innovative center fuel tank layout.”
That just scratches the surface of what’s exciting about the new HR-V, which also features the handy Honda Magic Seat and is expected to arrive with an efficient 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine. There’s even the possibility of a hybrid version coming to the states at some point!
November 19 can’t get here soon enough, but while you wait for the Honda HR-V debut, come visit us at Vann York Honda to learn more about the check out our current inventory.
