New 2023 Honda HR-V Compact SUV Revealed With Rugged Looks. Honda has yet to release photos or information about the HR-V’s interior, and we’re wondering what the new platform will mean for the packaging. The previous HR-V, like the Fit, featured a remarkably low cargo floor thanks to its fuel tank being mounted under the front seats. So we’re not sure if the old HR-V’s highly configurable rear seat that could fold in multiple configurations will carry over to the new model.

The all-new Honda HR-V debuts a clean, sporty and expressive exterior design for 2023, featuring a bold new grille, longer hood and sleek roofline. Based on the award-winning 11th generation Honda Civic, the HR-V is larger than its predecessor, with a longer wheelbase and wider stance while still remaining sporty and personal.

The HR-V is the right size with the space and utility for an adventurous weekend escape, yet nimble to maneuver city streets. Set to launch this summer, HR-V will feature a more responsive engine and a new independent rear suspension, giving the compact SUV a more confident, refined and fun-to-drive personality.

“By gaining aspirational qualities beyond its segment, the all-new 2023 Honda HR-V will welcome a new generation of customers to Honda and grow in importance as a gateway to the Honda brand,” said Michael Kistemaker, assistant vice president of Automobile Sales of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “This new HR-V will advance its position as the segment leader with young buyers, first-time buyers, and multicultural customers.” Inspired by the thrill of new experiences, HR-V’s design is ambitious with a strong sense of adventure.

A low horizontal beltline that begins with its extended hood and continues over the swell of the rear fenders gives its flowing forms a sense of motion. Wide-set LED headlights and taillights emphasize HR-V’s athletic stance. A sculpted hatch and functional tailgate spoiler highlight its sporty proportions.

A large greenhouse provides excellent visibility, enhanced by door-mounted mirrors and HR-V’s low cowl. For a cleaner, upscale look, laser-brazing technology eliminates the need for unsightly roof moldings, and HR-V’s windshield wipers hide under the hood line when not in use.

Honda has yet to release photos or information about the HR-V’s interior, and we’re wondering what the new platform will mean for the packaging. The previous HR-V, like the Fit, featured a remarkably low cargo floor thanks to its fuel tank being mounted under the front seats.

So we’re not sure if the old HR-V’s highly configurable rear seat that could fold in multiple configurations will carry over to the new model. Expect either a version of Honda’s 158-horsepower 2.0-liter 4-cylinder or, if we’re lucky, the Civic’s 180-hp turbocharged 1.5-liter. Either would fit the “more responsive” bill. The new Honda HR-V launches this summer with a 2023 model year designation.
