Honda has revealed the first details of the 2019 HR-V, with the early versions of the vehicle not available in diesel.
With all changes predominantly focused on appearance, with deeper air intake sections that house circular fog lights, and the headlights now having projector lenses with redesigned LED daytime running lights as standard, the manufacturer says that there will be a single petrol engine available from launch.
This model contains a 128bhp 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol, which returns 53.2mpg and emits 121g/km CO2 when fitted with the continuously-variable transmission. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes 10.7 seconds when equipped with the six-speed manual (6MT), and 11.2 seconds with the optional CVT. The petrol engine offers average fuel economy from 5.3l/100km (53.2 mpg) and official average CO2 emissions of 121 g/km for the CVT model.
Prices and UK specifcations are yet to be released but reports claim that the 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel will follow in 2019. Depending on model grade, the 2019 HR-V will also be equipped with Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) for the first time.
