All New Honda HR-V set to be most efficient in class

Starting from the summer of 2015, Honda will be offering its new HR-V with a choice of engines developed for optimal levels of efficiency. The engines are available in petrol and diesel models; a 1.5-litre capacity i-VTEC version and a 1.6-litre capacity i-DTEC version. Both have been produced as part of Honda's Earth Dreams Technology series.

The Honda HR-V will use six-speed transmission for both petrol and diesel engines. Diesel owners will enjoy 118bhp, and 0-60mph acceleration in under ten seconds. The combined fuel consumption is 71mpg, and the CO2 emissions are 104g/km. Those who choose petrol will have a combined fuel consumption of 54.2mpg and CO2 emissions of 120g/km, and 0-60mph acceleration in under 11 seconds.

As well as the newly-efficient engines, the Honda HR-V will also feature a range of technological features as well as flexible storage functions. The initial boot space of 453 litres opens up to 1,026 litres with the rear seats lowered, and makes use of Honda's Magic Seats system.

Head of Car at Honda UK, Leon Brannan, spoke of his belief in the HR-V's potential: "The Honda HR-V created this fast-growing market segment back in 1999 and for 2015 the all-new HR-V will offer a class-leading ownership proposition, refinement, sleek styling, a quality feel, as well as being packed to the roof with safety and technology features."
