2021 Honda HR-V (Vezel) Revealed
The 2021 Honda HR-V( Vezel) has been revealed in Japan before its launch. The new third-gene SUV has a more advanced design than its ancestor, which is cleaner and sharper and provides a petrol-electric hybrid powertrain.
While the current HR-V (Vezel) still maintains its look, the style of the new SUV-coupe is a major departure. Its overall architecture looks are inspired by the 2020 Honda SUV e model which was seen in the Beijing motor show.
A prominent grill finish that has two style options is offered for the 2021 Honda HR-V. The thick chrome band decorating the front of the previous model is particularly absent. Sleek LED headlamps with LED DRLs are mounted alongside the grille. The buffer has a pronounced upper lip to the central air-dam with a skid plate and wider fog lamp.
In the interior, the dashboard is designed in layers with leather inserts around it. A free central touch screen is mounted on the dashboard which comes with the Honda connect car technology. The Air-con control is similar to the new-fifth gen Honda City. The faux vent like an element running down the passenger side of the dashboard is a fascinating design element. The rotating control, which regulates the movement of the air through side windings on either end of the dashboard, is another fascinating feature.
Apart from the common features such as panoramic sunroof, LED headlights, hands-free tailgate, heated seats, and auto climate control it also gets the Honda Sensing safety Kit. The safety features include a warning crash prevention feature that instantly beeps if the vehicle detects an accidental halting by the driver, active cruise control, foot tracking, and avoidance, collision mitigation braking, lane hold assistance, and traffic sign awareness.
The 2021 Honda HR-V will be offered with standard petrol and a petrol hybrid dual-engine powertrain option. A 1.5-liter petrol engine, coupled with a CVT transmission gearbox, would power the standard petroleum model.
Currently, Honda has the Jazz, the WR-V, the Honda City, and the Honda Amaze in the lined-up for India. The carmaker has recently announced that manufacturing operations are being shut down at its Greater Noida factory and its Civic sedan and CR-V SUV flagship sales are discontinuing in the region.
