Exterior Design

The changes in the HR-V start with its expressive exterior. This all-new design is highlighted by a low horizontal beltline, an extended hood and wide set LED headlights and taillights. It’s not just about style but ability and convenience as well with air curtain inlets for increased aerodynamics, laser-brazing tech that has removed the need for roof mouldings and hidden windshield wipers when not in use. The rear sees some fine-tunements as well with a better-shaped head and taillights. Across the trims, from LX to EX-L Navi, each one showcases its own highlights, like the LX’s matte-finish on its honeycomb grille, the Sport’s aggressive features and the EX-L Navi’s premium additions. An exclusive HR-V colour, Nordic Forest Pearl, is new as well.

Interior Design

The 2022 Civic started the trend in Honda vehicles with a cleaner and simpler look. The HR-V is continuing this winning theme. The interior mixes and matches utility with style, including a redesigned instrument panel for a wider view and metal honeycomb mesh accents that separate the entertainment and climate controls. The best materials were used to create a premium look, whether that’s just the button knobs or the French stitching on the centre console. Body stabilizing seats are new for the HR-V, keeping you secure and comfortable on long rides. Possibly most importantly for your versatile crossover needs, the cargo area has been increased to 691 L with the seats up, and 1,559 L with the seats down.


The new tech features and their implementation go hand-in-hand with the new clean and simple look of the interior. A digital instrumentation display arrives in the 2023 HR-V for the first time ever, complete with larger screens for easier use, all with standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Every trim has  a 7-inch instrument display, featuring a digital speedometer and tachometer on the left, with a physical speedometer on the right. New for LX and Sport models is a new standard 7-inch colour touchscreen, with convenient and ergonomic controls that make for simple ease of use.

The new, even sportier style and personality of the 2023 HR-V isn’t just from its refined looks, but also from its engine and systems that allow it to be just a fun-to-drive crossover. The 2023 HR-V was built on new architecture, with Honda’s enhanced global architecture platform. Its larger wheel base allows for increased stability on the road, while larger brakes mean better stopping power when braking is needed. The new HR-V engine is a bigger 2.0L 4-cylinder engine, which produces both 158 horsepower and 138 lb-ft of torque. Not only is the engine more powerful than last generation’s, but also is more efficient, refined and responsive. Additional re-engineered features include both the CVT and the Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control system.
