The Honda HR-V 2023 debuts later this year, and here are the first teaser images of the new model. This automaker calls this “the year of the crossover.”
These are just sketches of the new HR-V, but some conclusions can still be drawn about the design. The front end is more aggressive than the current model with a more prominent lower fascia, and the black elements in the corners are likely to be more presentable than the actual doorways. The grille in the center of the HR-V’s face has an octagonal shape with an S-shaped grille pattern.
The headlights are more boxy than the current HR-V (see comparison below). The headlights are on raised sections of the front end, and the rest of the hood is lower.
At the rear, the new HR-V appears to have a steeper rake for the rear pillar which could give the model a sleeker appearance. The new taillights feature smoother lines and a reduced angle than the current model. The modified bumper moves the reflectors higher and adds a body-color element closer to the ground.
The HR-V for the North American market is different from the version available in other markets. In a statement issued in early 2021, Honda said: “This new HR-V will be designed to meet the distinct needs of American customers, and will differ from the Honda Vezel/HR-V that will be introduced in other regions.”
With Fit leaving the lineup in the US for 2020, Honda has repositioned the HR-V and Civic Hatchback as entry points into the brand’s lineup. The automaker decided to increase production of the HR-V. It was a smart decision because there were 137,090 deliveries in 2021, which was a 63.1 percent jump from 2020.
Honda’s teaser doesn’t provide any technical details whatsoever about the new HR-V, and there are no pictures of the cabin either. Looking at the model year 2023, expect the arrival of the latest generation of the crossover in the United States in the first half of the year.
