Honda Introduces New HR-V Crossover

If the overwhelming success of the 2014 Honda CR-V has taught us anything, it’s that American consumers really love a good crossover utility vehicle. And why shouldn’t they? No other segment of vehicle in the industry offers quite the same combination of efficiency, maneuverability, and practicality, so it’s easy to see how drivers could fall in love with a vehicle that wears so many different hats so well.

Soon, however, the Honda CR-V won’t be the only crossover in the Honda stable, as the company recently released images of the new 2015 Honda HR-V compact crossover, which will reportedly make its way to dealerships this coming winter.

The images debuted earlier this month at the New York International Auto Show and didn’t really come with a whole lot of information other than it will be based off of the same platform as the completely-redesigned 2015 Honda Fit.

Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of Honda automobile division for American Honda, said that the HR-V demonstrates “how great things come in small packages, and no one does this better than Honda.”

In other words, customers like smaller vehicles right now, especially stylish ones with plenty of interior and cargo space. With the Magic Seat®, a feature that allows for several different seating configurations, the versatility of this new crossover will stand out, as well.

We look forward to receiving more information about this exciting new Honda crossover in the coming months, but for now we’ll just stare dreamily at the photos that have been released and wait patiently for them to arrive on our doorstep later this winter.
