The 2022 Honda HR-V has been engineered with a focus on driver enjoyment and comfort.
The all-new HR-V has a more rigid body structure and benefits from extensive suspension, steering and braking enhancements. This allows it to respond more precisely to driver inputs, and delivers a more assured, more rewarding and comfortable driving experience.
Powered from a two-motor e:HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) powertrain, the new HR-V has been crafted to be both extremely enjoyable and responsive to drive, as well as highly efficient.
The e:HEV battery system has a high density 60-cell configuration, providing the power to give the HR-V its SUV driving characteristics, whilst remaining compact enough not to impact on interior space and enabling the HR-V to feature a flat floor.
Honda engineers have also managed to increase torsional rigidity and the spring rate of the steering column, delivering a smoother feel during direction changes. Initial corner turn-in is more direct and precise, with the overall feel during manoeuvres much more linear, and inspiring confidence through stable and predictable handling.
Stopping power is delivered by a powerful braking system featuring 293mm ventilated front discs and 282mm solid discs at the rear. A bespoke electric servo brake mated to the e:HEV system smoothly controls the regenerative and hydraulic brakes, affording smooth brake feel.
And lastly, the HR-V's brake pedal has been positioned with a keener focus on ergonomics, reducing driver fatigue over long distances.
