Honda Teases New HR-V With Gaping Maw



The teaser game continues.

Honda has sent the automotive press two teaser images of the next-generation HR-V small crossover.

And that’s all they’ve sent.

The only other details they’ve given is that the model year will be 2023. And that it will launch in North America this year.


We can see from the pics that the grille opening is quite large, the headlights and upper grille appear to be a nod to the old S2000 roadster, and the taillights appear to have an Acura influence.

The 2022 model is available for prices as low as around $21K, with upper trims falling just short of $29K.

Current models are motivated by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that makes 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque, and all-wheel drive is available.

The HR-V is a bit forgotten sometimes, with the focus on Honda crossovers spread amongst the popular CR-V, the larger Pilot, and the outdoors-targeted Passport. But it’s there for entry-level buyers and/or crossover intenders who don’t need a ton of space.

And now we have a hint of what the next one will look like. Soon enough, we’ll know more.

With the North American International Auto Show moving to the fall, the next auto show is Chicago, which as of this moment, is still on. So could it be unveiled there? Or will it be elsewhere, at a later event?

We shall see.
