All-New 2023 Honda HR-V Steps Out with Youthful, Athletic Styling

  • Stylish 2nd-generation HR-V features a low horizontal beltline, a longer hood, larger grille, wider stance and a sleek roofline
  • New HR-V will be more refined, confident and fun-to-drive with substantially improved dynamics and powertrain responsiveness
  • Model set to launch this summer

The all-new Honda HR-V debuts a clean, sporty and expressive exterior design for 2023, featuring a bold new grille, longer hood and sleek roofline. Based on the award-winning 11th generation Honda Civic, the HR-V is larger than its predecessor, with a longer wheelbase and wider stance while remaining sporty and personal. The HR-V is the right size with the space and utility for an adventurous weekend escape, yet nimble to maneuver city streets.

Set to launch this summer, HR-V will feature a more responsive engine and a new independent rear suspension, giving the sub-compact SUV a more confident, refined and fun-to-drive personality.

"The all-new, sub-compact HR-V will attract a new generation of customers with its upgraded and enhanced features, the perfect introduction to our "Year of the Honda SUV" with the all-new CR-V and Pilot still to come," says Steve Hui, Assistant Vice President Honda Canada. "The HR-V has gained qualities beyond its segment while retaining the reliability, durability and versality it is known for. Making it a leader with young, diverse buyers looking for a SUV that can hit city streets and rural roads with ease."

Inspired by the thrill of new experiences, HR-V's design is ambitious with a strong sense of adventure. A low horizontal beltline that begins with its extended hood and continues over the swell of the rear fenders gives its flowing forms a sense of motion. Wideset LED headlights and taillights emphasize HR-V's athletic stance. A sculpted hatch and functional tailgate spoiler highlight its sporty proportions.

A large greenhouse provides excellent visibility, enhanced by door-mounted mirrors and HR-V's low cowl. For a cleaner, upscale look, laser-brazing technology eliminates the need for roof moldings, and HR-V's windshield wipers hide under the hood line when not in use.

More information about the all-new HR-V will be released over the coming months with consumers encouraged to learn more at
