The 3rd generation Honda HR-V is due for a reveal towards the end of 2021, and we're keen to see what Honda does with this SUV. Details are scarce at the moment, we've got no inkling of powertrain options, but we suspect that petrol options are on the cards and we would bank on there being some form of electrification for the European market. 

Visually, what you see here is quite impressive. Adopting modern urban SUV design cues, the next-gen Honda HR-V looks more like an SUV coupe. 

In South Africa, the Honda HR-V has sold in reasonable numbers. As of January 2021, there are two derivatives on sale; 1.5 Comfort and 1.8 Elegance. Priced at R415 400 and R491 400 respectively, the Honda HR-V offers an abundance of practicality in one stylish package. Honda South Africa updated the HR-V in 2018 and we think the vehicle is overdue for an all-new model.
