The camouflaged HR-V seen in the image has hidden the important design details, however, it reveals some character lines present on the tailgate, C-shaped tail lamp, shark-fin antenna and the 17-inch alloy wheels. The India-bound midsize SUV will be a bit different than the facelift version of HR-V revealed in the ASEAN markets last year. The HR-V will be brought in India as a CKD unit and to keep the prices in check, the Japanese brand is expected to equip the HR-V with a 1.8-litre petrol engine which also powers the Honda's premium sedan, Civic. Additionally, the HR-V might also get the 1.6-litre diesel engine capable of churning out 120 bhp of peak power.

Speaking of the exteriors, the Honda HR-V will borrow styling cues from CR-V. The LED headlamp and tail light will certainly enhance the midsize SUV's overall visual appeal. The interiors of the HR-V will be inspired by Honda Civic which means that it will pack a number of safety, comfort and connectivity features. The higher grades of the HR-V will also get a 7.0-inch infotainment system and a panoramic sunroof.
