Honda HR-V

The Los Angeles Auto Show is a big car event where the companies choose to expose their new models. This year’s event will take place between the 21st of November and 30th of November. So at the end of the last month you will be able to admire new vehicles and the fans will be happy to hear that Honda will go to the show too. The carmaker has manufactured a new crossover, the 2016 HR-V.

It seems it’s actually a facelift of the CR-V and the premiere for the North American people will be held at Los Angles. The new model will be entering the competition on the sales market starting next year. Why do we say this? Because the new Honda CR-V will be a real competitor for the Nissan Juke, Buick Encore and the Chevrolet Trax. Some reviews also say it may be possible for the vehicle to go into dealerships till the end of this year. Anyway, the car will be sold in the United States for starters. Honda released the first official photos of the new model some time ago and they were made at the 2014 New York International Auto Show in April and at the debut of the HR-V Study at the Paris Motor Show, which took place earlier this month. There has been an announcement today, which had a new picture of Honda HR-V.

The differences between the facelift of the CR-V and the CR-V are minimal. The exterior design seems to differ most. The new model has new LEDs which give a cool aspect to the car. Also, it features bigger wheels, chrome side skirt decor and gloss black body trims. Actually, this new color brings an advantage to the car, bringing a new allure of attractiveness. The model was built on the same global compact platform that underpins the latest Fit. The carmaker hasn’t said a word about the available engine models but there have already been suppositions according to which the new model will get the Fit's 130hp 1.5-liter i-VTEC four-pot. There have been some declarations which say the company will also provide a turbocharged version of the same engine for the United States.
