The images of the facelifted model of the Honda HR-V have been leaked online before its official debut. The leaked images of the Japan-spec model reveal the updated interior and exterior styling of the compact SUV. 

The 2018 Honda HR-V facelift, which will be known as the 2018 Honda Vezel in Japan, will go on sale in its domestic market sometime in February this year. It will eventually be rolling out in other international markets as well.

Talking about the modifications, the facelifted model appears to receive some cosmetic changes along with some feature upgrades. At the front, the crossover gets a larger front grille and Honda logo, a sharper front bumper, a wider air intake and new LED headlights with bigger fog lamps. At the rear end, the car gets refreshed LED tail lights along with a more chrome-like tailgate. 

Inside the cabin, the car will sport a new infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with satellite navigation. The safety features include ABS with EBD, front and side airbags, Brake Assist, Vehicle Stability Assist and much more.

The 2018 Honda HR-V facelift is likely to borrow the same engines as its predecessor -  a 1.5-litre and a 1.8-litre petrol, a 1.6-litre diesel and a 1.5-litre petrol-hybrid unit. Power outputs are expected to remain unchanged for the model. As far as the transmission is concerned, the engine is likely to be mated to a 6-speed manual and a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

The automaker is likely to bring the refreshed model to India sometime in 2019. The India-spec model is expected to be offered in two engine options -  the 1.8-litre petrol and the 1.6-litre diesel. Once it arrives, it will take on the likes of the Jeep Compass, Renault Captur and the Hyundai Creta in the Indian auto-market.
