Honda announces new HR-V Sport with 1.5 VTEC TURBO engine

Well with VTEC engine, but that should not be a surprise anymore.

The current generation of the Honda HR-V , whose facelifted version was launched at the beginning of this year, was taken care of by the Japanese car manufacturer this week. The appearance of the neat “subcompact SUV” is something extra, but more importantly, the Sport version is the most powerful engine ever seen by the model.

The Honda HR-V Sport takes over the power source of its challenging family: the new Honda Civic . The automaker has transferred the 1.5 VTEC turbo engine to the dark HR-V, so the power of the compact crossover suddenly peaked at 182 hp. If you choose the optional CVT above the standard six-speed manual, the engine produces 220 Nm. They are not impressive figures, but this is more than enough for the HR-V. If the power does not tingle your limbs, then the adjusted suspension and the new suspension may be the solution.

Apart from the technical adjustments, Honda has given HR-V Sport a series of upgrades on the outside to make it look a bit more challenging. The car enjoys style elements such as a front splitter, side aprons and larger wheel arches, as well as smoked rear lights and a number of black accents. The car is also on 18 “rims and he gets double exhaust pipes.

In the spring of 2019, the car has to be on the market.
