The All-New 2016 HR-V Debut’s at the 2014 Los Angeles International Auto Show
The all-new 2016 Honda HR-V crossover was revealed on November 19th at the 2014 Los Angeles International Auto Show. The vehicle’s new design works to blend the styling components of a coupe with the space, utility and overall of toughness of a sports utility vehicle, all with the multi-dimensional and sporty aspects well known to the Honda brand. The all-new 2016 HR-V will be joining the crossover market, which has gained momentum as a growing segment. The HR-V will be a standout in it’s class, as it combines an elegant exterior, class-leading fuel economy ratings, and interior spaciousness – all within a fun-to-drive package.
The all-new Honda HR-V utilizes a new global platform, which reveals a top-in-its-class versatility in space and cabin innovation. Revealing a second-row “Magic Seat”, the interior cargo space can be reconfigured to allow multiple cargo and seating arrangements.

The vehicle, said Conrad, incorporates the DNA of a classic Honda; the fuel-efficient powertrain technology, packaging innovation and leading safety technology which have made Honda Vehicles consistently stand out among the best in their class. These components work together to create a sporty and value packed member of the Honda family of vehicles, said Conrad.
The HR-V has a sporty and solid appearance which is aided by a shape resembling a coupe, with powerfully bold and sculpted lines.
