2023 Honda HR-V – Honda refers to 2022 as “the Year of the Crossover,” and it is fitting, considering Honda has three new SUV models starting with the Honda HRV in 2023. Honda announced Thursday that Honda’s 2023 HRV would be the first of a trio of new crossovers. They are all expected to make their debuts this year. The exact date of the announcement is unknown, but we know that the HR-V will first cross over, then the CR-V, and then the Pilot. A sketch of the HRV is included in the news. The design is more refined, but the lower air dam looks aggressive (in a good way). The rear taillights carry more Civic DNA than what you see in the new Euro market HR-V.
2023 Honda HR-V Review
The automaker didn’t say much about HRV. This was a model made specifically for the US market. The importance of electrification in these new vehicles is unknown. Honda’s hybrids enjoy increasing popularity among its customers. Only the new HR-V hybrid is available in Japan, Europe, and Japan. The HR-V remains the king of its segment, and it even entered its final model year. Honda doesn’t want to see the HR-V lose its place.
Honda would offer a hybrid, in the same manner, it treats its CR-V. As buyers get used to electrification, it would be available in both gas-only and hybrid versions. There are two options for the latest Civic: one with 158 horsepower naturally aspirated I4 and one with 180 horsepower turbocharged I4. The HR-V could benefit from both engines to boost its power output, which is currently 141 horsepower.
Honda has many cars and they will be loved. Following the aforementioned SUVs, Honda will introduce a new Civic Type R performance sedan and a new Accord midsize sedan. Acura will unveil the resurrected Integra as a production model sometime in the middle of 2022.
