Honda revealed its all-new Honda HR-V entry crossover will make its North American debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show on Nov. 19.
The HR-V, already known as the Vezel in other markets, will serve as the entry point to the Honda light truck lineup; Honda said it is positioned below the CR-V in both price and size and competing in an all-new segment for the brand.
Honda added the HR-V is anticipated to launch this winter. Built on the same global compact platform that underpins the Fit, the HR-V is said to feature a versatile and spacious interior helped by a center fuel tank layout.
The HR-V will be equipped with the Honda-exclusive Magic Seat, which allows for multiple seating configurations and the ability to fold the second row seat completely flat for added cargo space, explained the company.
The HR-V or Vezel is available in hybrid version in other markets. We’ll have to wait for the reveal in Los Angeles to know exactly the powertrain choices to be offered in North America.
