The Honda HR-V has defiantly stood the test of time, even though it was never meant to please everyone like the rest of the Honda Cars lineup.
Throughout the decades, it has carried wacky styling details that made it stand out even among other crossovers. But underneath all the spectacle, the HR-V has always been a highly competent sport-utility vehicle that used the best of Honda Cars’ technology.
From the very beginning, the HR-V has obstinately been a left-field choice.
The first-generation HR-V, which debuted in 1998, was based on the Honda Logo hatchback and had boxy styling, huge taillights and headlights that made it look perennially happy.
Combine all these with stand-out colors like Passion Orange and the HR-V really made clear that it was the cooler little brother of the Honda CR-V.
The second-generation model arrived in the Philippines on June 2015. Now using the underpinnings of the Honda Jazz hatchback and the Honda City sedan, the HR-V grew bigger, but still carried funky touches like hidden rear door handles and swoopy styling.
The current HR-V was unveiled on April 2022, still using the platform of the contemporary Jazz and City. This generation also marked the debut of a turbocharged powerplant for the HR-V, along with the addition of the Honda SENSING active safety system for all variants.
There are currently three variants of the HR-V – the S, the V Turbo and the RS Turbo.
The Honda HR-V price in the Philippines starts at P1,250,000.00. The lowest price is the Honda HR-V S CVT, ranging all the way up to the Honda HR-V RS Turbo CVT priced at
