The Honda HR-V should receive its first facelift in 2018, according to the Australian website CarAdvice. The global crossover of the Japanese brand is well positioned in many markets, including leading sales in the Brazilian market in its segment. Honda’s local subsidiary mentions the change in the crossover, but does not comment on details. However, if we take into account the recent changes in the City and Fit models, we can expect some interesting things.
In addition to the bumpers, the optical assembly can gain conventional dual projectors, while the LED should become more sophisticated. Slightly updated lanterns, new alloy wheels and a redesigned grille are expected. Inside, multimedia with a more modern browser, Android Auto and Car Play should also emerge.
In safety, the Honda Sensing safety package should provide the HR-V with up-to-date adaptive cruise control, range intrusion alert with steering and braking correction, blind spot alert, collision warning with automatic emergency braking, among others.
In mechanics, there should be no major changes, as the 130 hp 1.0 Turbo engine should debut first in Fit. A 1.5-hp 150-hp option could be seen on the Japanese market.
