The HR-V is one of the Honda models that is in high demand in the national market.

Yesterday, Honda manufacturers released the 2022 Honda HRV for the European market.
It’s a revamp of the 2020 version with a fresh look, including support for a new powertrain. The manufacturer also adds a touch of sophistication to the cabin, making it more refined and modern.

The 2022 Honda HRV will debut at the end of 2021, and it is said that it will be the first to enter the European market.
2022 Honda HRV Exterior
2022 Honda HRV has a fresh look inside and out. The exterior is very new, with a strong taste for the SUV / Crossovers market.
But compared to the previous HR-V, the HR-V feature is less noticeable because the new version looks more distinct and the body surface is flat, while the old version is more curved and angular.
The headlights look narrower and elongate. To give the front a neat impression, the headlights are connected by a thin chrome line.
The grille front shape no longer uses a solid wing front but is replaced by a new, more radical grille in shape.
Like body-colored thin blades that appear integrated. It looks futuristic, just like the dashboard of an electric vehicle.
In Japan, consumers can adjust colors, including other colors on the grid rod. So if someone feels the grid color is too monotonous, it can be replaced with another color to make it look more fresher.
