Honda's forthcoming small SUV, the HR-V, has been shortlisted for the 2015 What Car? Reader Award. Compiled by What Car? experts and voted for by readers, the shortlist features the most eagerly anticipated new models coming to the UK market in the next twelve months.
Arriving in the UK and across Europe next summer, the HR-V is Honda's new entry into the fast-growing small SUV segment. Unveiled recently at the Paris Motor Show, the prototype of the new built-for-Europe model echoes that of a coupé, with sharp, dynamic lines that link the sleek upper body with the stable and planted lower body.
This coupé-esque elegance is achieved without compromising the interior practicality of the HR-V. It features a centre fuel tank location to create one of the most spacious and adaptable small SUV cabins, while Honda’s Magic Seats® make use of this versatility by enabling a wide range of seating configurations, with the ability to fold the second row seats completely flat for additional cargo space.
Leon Brannan, Head of Car at Honda (UK) comments:
The HR-V is a very welcome addition to our line-up, in what is a very popular and fast growing market segment. While being shortlisted for any award is fantastic, I'm particularly pleased with this one as it's voted for by the general public and based on the opinions of the trusted experts at What Car?.
Voting is open until 00.01 on Monday 1st December 2014, with the HPI-sponsored Reader Award winner announced at the What Car? awards ceremony on Wednesday 7th January 2015. To view the shortlist and to vote please visit:Vote Now
