According to early reports, the 2017 Honda HR-V will present to the automotive market with a good design. This is a vehicle that is said to arrive with some advanced automotive technology features as well as the ability to invoke interest. Additionally, the new offering of the HR-V will deliver both the driver as well as their passengers with enhanced levels of convenience and comfort.
2017 Honda HR-V – Engine Specs
Under the hood of the new 2017 Honda HR-V, consumers will note that its power will be garnered from a four-cylinder 1.8 liter power unit. This engine is said to be capable of a maximum output of 141 horsepower and 127 pounds per feet of torque. Consumers will have the choice of mating the unit with either a continuously variable transmission or a manual six speed gearbox. The manual transmission will only be able to be coupled with front wheel drive while the other transmission option will afford consumers with an all-wheel drive coupling.
2017 Honda HR-V Exterior and Interior
The updated 2017 Honda HR-V will provide automotive consumers with a modified front grille and headlights. The shape of the vehicle is rumored to be more fun while the high arched roofline affords to an increased amount of headroom within the cabin as the front fender is void of swelling at the shoulder. In the rear of the vehicle, consumers will note that there are hidden door handles.
Unlike its larger counterpart, the new offering of the 2017 Honda HR-V will not contain the chaos of the dual screen. The vehicle will feature a cabin that is best described as quite clean while its higher trim levels contain a touch screen interface for its safety display as well as its infotainment system. Consumers will certainly enjoy the 100 cubic feet of space within the base model variant of the line, as well as the estimated 96.1 cubic feet of interior space afforded to the EX-L and EX trim levels. Additionally, the interior of the vehicle plays host to a “Magic Chair”. This seat within the second row of the vehicle is able to flip and fold as a measure of providing additional possibilities for seat configurations as well as storage and transport options. This truly allows the vehicle to stand apart from its competitors, especially since (as a standard) it already offers an estimated 58.8 cubic feet of storage space. 24.3 cubic feet of cargo area is located behind the second row of seating alone. The cabin of the latest addition to the Honda portfolio will find itself equipped with the following features as a standard: Bluetooth connectivity with audio streaming, steering wheel based audio controls, a tilting and telescoping steering wheel, a rearview camera as well as power locks and windows. Optional features that will be made available to automotive consumers are as follows: heated front seating, a sunroof, leather wrapped seating, a satellite radio system, paddle shifter, push button start, a Lane Watch camera as well as a touch screen interface.
