2021 Honda HR-V is a continuation of the last year redesigned model and slightly changed model in exterior design from the last year. Fortunately, there are few changes that are worthy of mentioning, like the new design of the chassis and upgrades in the cabin, but, the car is a little smaller, that decreased the space in the cabin and cargo space.
Being in the middle of the list of attractive cars for years, H-RV will try to make a change in that modernizing the design. So, we were able to see how the model has changed in that part. Engine and other details have not been changed, though.
- The model is modernized and more attractive.
- There are significant changes in cabin technology.
- There are no changes in the engine for a long time.
- The cabin and cargo space are smaller.
The 2021 Honda H-RV is smaller but higher, so stable and better for driving. There are visible changes in front and rear and as well as additions on the roof and the sides of the car. This time does not look like models in class, but it is more attractive than before.
The front end could be similar to Nissan Juke. Despite the changes in design, the model is made on the same platform, so the final dimension of the car is actually the same as before. There are new 17-inch aluminum wheels, new colors and great upgrades in details. Old fans will recognize a traditional competing with Jeep Renegade, too.
As one of the first and maybe the best novelty in 2021 Honda HR-V, the manufacturer pointed out great ground clearance, thanks to the higher position of the cabin. However, the manufacturer added numerous new additions and devices, so driving in this car has become a great experience.
The upgraded infotainment system is controlled by commands on the large touchscreen, made of liquid crystals and upgraded with new devices and futuristic technology. The cabin is made a little smaller than we expected and surely smaller than before. Unfortunately, there are not that wide space between first and the second row as before. This change they have replaced with new USB ports, phone connection, and new sound and audio system.
It is possible that Honda will not experiment with engines in new models, so 2021 Honda HR-V should have the same 1.8-liter four-inline petrol engine. Its 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque have been proven as a highly attractive and useful model for the large and strong vehicle as it is.
As a matter of fact, the approximate fuel consumption of 25/33 mpg for the front-wheel driving system an 27/34 mpg for all-wheel driving system supports this decision. The engine comes paired with CVT intelligent or six-speed automatic transmission, depending on the buyer’s decision.
