2022 Honda HRV Redesign
2022 Honda HRV Redesign– Honda introduced the HR-V subcompact crossover to the United States in 2015, which means the model is likely to be replaced in the near future. The 2020 Honda HR-V has the advantage of being the largest and widest vehicle in its class, although we would like to see it gain more power. In the US, Honda only offers the car with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 141 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque while Europe receives a turbocharged version that produces 180 hp.
The US may never accept the turbocharged HR-V, but what if Honda had stepped up the power in some other way? Rendering artist Kleber Silva has just revealed his interpretation of the HR-V 2022 and it gives us an interesting idea.
The rendering clearly takes inspiration from the Honda Insight which is a hybrid sedan. The HR-V 2022 borrows the front fascia, headlamps, grille, taillights and wheel patterns from its hybrid sibling and even uses a black Toyota-inspired roof for added sportiness. The Insight is already a very attractive vehicle so its design elements translate well into a crossover.
No powertrain specs are provided with the rendering, but we assume we will borrow the engine and hybrid system from Insight. It won’t be a huge power boost but the Insight’s 1.5 liter gas engine and electric motor combine to produce 151 hp, about 10 hp more than the current HR-V.
Although sales of the Honda HR-V are struggling to take off in Europe (more than 21,000 units sold last year), this model has hit staggering numbers in 2019 alone.
In fact, the Honda HR-V sold worldwide in 2019 to nearly 280 thousand units, of which 257 thousand commercialization of the same model is named in another way. In China, the Honda HR-V is called the Vezel or XR-V. In short, this SUV with more than half a million units a year represents one of Honda’s top models.

2022 Honda HRVSpecification
In terms of engine, the biggest part of the Honda HR-V 2022 still has to be the 1.5i V-TEC which has to be offered in 135 and 173 HP versions. At the same time, one if not two hybrid variants which must always be based on the same engine and have more horsepower, guaranteeing reduced consumption and emissions. A new 1.0-liter V-Tec petrol engine with around 115-120 hp could also arrive.
2022 Honda HRV Price & Release Date
On the other hand, the diesel version could definitely disappear, at least from the European market. Prices for the new Honda HR-V 2022 should range from $ 29,000- $ 30,000 with commercialization starting in mid-2022.
