The Honda HR-V is well overdue for a redesign in the United States, leaving Honda fans wondering how similar our version will be to the European one introduced in 2020. That model, seen below, is a pretty drastic departure from the 1st generation and can even be had as a full-electric variant called the e:HEV.
The time has finally come for Honda to show us a sneak peak of the HR-V we should expect to see here by the end of this year. The company released two sketches this morning showing off the front and rear of the car, albeit with the caricature meter cranked up just a hair. First spied back in November 2021, these sketches confirm that the vehicle you see testing on U.S. soil here is definitely the design we should expect when this thing is fully unveiled.
The only detail provided other than these sketches is that the HR-V will be revealed this year, so it remains to be seen what kind of powertrains we can expect from the little guy, as well as whether there will be any electrified versions on offer. Stay tuned for more on this in the coming months!
