Honda HR-V Preview

Buoyed by the response of WR-V, the Japanese auto giant, Honda, is now planning to add another SUV to its line-up. It is expected that Honda will launch HR-V in India, either by the end of 2018 or sometime in 2019. The 5-seater SUV will be slotted above WR-V in Honda’s SUV range and will go squarely against Hyundai Creta in its space. That said, the Honda HR-V expected price will be above its smaller sibling, WR-V. While the SUV is sold under the Vezel nameplate in the native market, in India it is likely to be sold under the HR-V badge, in tandem with Honda’s nomenclature for its SUVs.
