Everybody is more than a little excited about the 2015 Honda Fit, and with good reason: it stands to be one of the most exciting small cars on the market this year. While the Fit represents Honda at the pinnacle of small car mastery, the all-new 2015 Honda HR-V will express Honda’s potential to dominate the compact SUV market.
“Both Fit and HR-V demonstrate how great things can come in small packages, and no one does this better than Honda,” said Jeff Conrad, senior vice president and general manager of the Honda automobile division for American Honda, in a press release. “Together these models also represent Honda’s step-by-step expansion of our production in the region, which has been key to our success in America for more than 30 years.”
So what do we know so far about the HR-V? It shares a lot of its bones with the Fit, with both being built on the same platform. It’s something of a riff off of the Urban S.U.V. that appeared in New York at this same time last year, and based on the pictures we’ve seen, it looks quite sharp.
That, as they say, is the story so far. There were no specs released, though we could assume that the HR-V will get the same four-cylinder engine that will power the sporty fit. We do know that Honda has projected for a winter release…oh, how cruel is Honda to make us think that there will be a next winter.
We will have more information on the 2015 HR-V as it becomes available to your trusted Avery Greene Honda bloggers.
