As well as bringing updated styling and interior space and versatility said to be class-leading, the new model will also bring official CO2 emissions from 104g/km and fuel economy up to 71mpg.
A choice of 118bhp 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel and 128bhp 1.5 litre i-VTEC petrol engines will be available from launch, both from Honda's advanced Earth Dreams Technology series.
Combining the 1.6 litre i-DTEC diesel paired with a newly engineered six-speed manual transmission, will see Honda's new subcompact SUV offer official fuel economy figures from 71mpg, with CO2 emissions starting from 104g/km. The engine also offers a 0-62mph time of 10.1 seconds.
Petrol buyers can select a 1.5 litre i-VTEC engine, offering official combined fuel economy of 128mpg and CO2 emissions from 120 g/km with the optional CVT automatic transmission. When married with the standard six-speed manual, the new petrol-powered HR-V offers official fuel economy of 50mpg and CO2 emissions at 130g/km. Meanwhile the 0-62mph times are 10.3 seconds with the manual and 10.9 seconds when equipped with the optional CVT.
Inside, the new HR-V will offer boot space of 453 litres with the rear seats up and 1,026 litres with the rear seats down. Honda also promises best-in-class interior space enhanced by its Magic Seats system.
Specification details include the Honda Connect in-car infotainment system, and a wide range of safety aids employing radar and camera technologies to scan the road ahead.
