As we have said many times before, the SUV segments is one that has triumphed in the face of adversity. During the economic downturn it is the only segment which continued to thrive and so that is why almost every manufacturer now has one in their portfolio. Porsche, Range Rover and soon Jaguar are extreme examples of brands that have broken tradition to jump on the bandwagon. Crossovers fall into this category and Honda are reviving an old nameplate to create their latest product. The Honda HR-V will headline for Honda at the 2014 Paris motor show.
Paris this year is to be bigger than ever and the Honda HR-V adds to the lineup. This highly sculpted crossover is based upon the Honda Civic platform and possesses an eye-catching premium design. Sweeping body lines wrap around the cars neat proportions, you have to admit it is rather good looking. The architecture is kept uncluttered by hiding the rear door handle next to the window. So far there are no details on what engines will power the Honda HR-V, but you can bet your hat that the efficient 1.6 litre diesel the Japanese company offers will make an appearance.
