The new Honda HR-V e:HEV Hybrid goes on sale in the UK with prices starting from £26,960 – all with hybrid powertrain – and three trim levels.
Honda has been busy teasing the new HR-V e:HEV Hybrid since January, slowly revealing bits and pieces of information to garner interest in their clever new hybrid-only HR-V.
But despite all that, Honda was still reluctant to reveal too much, and it took until last week for Honda to reveal performance and economy figures for the HR-V e:HEV Hybrid.
But having spent the last seven months doing the dance of the seven veils, Honda has now bitten the bullet and put the HR-V e:HEV Hybrid on sale in the UK, with prices starting from £26,960 and a choice of three trim levels.
But whichever of the three trim levels you opt for – Elegance from £26,960, Advance from £29,210 or Advance Style from £31,660 – you get the same two-motor hybrid powertrain with a 1.5-litre petrol engine good for a combined 129bhp and driving more like an EV than a ‘self-charging’ hybrid.
The entry-level HR-V e:HEV Elegance comes with LED headlights, heated front seats, a8″ alloys, and smartphone connectivity, and if you move up to the Advance model you also get a power tailgate, heated steering wheel, fake leather and cloth trim, with Advance Style trim (£31,660) adding Premium Sound, titivated looks including two-tone exterior paint and orange detailing inside.
The New Honda HR-V e:HEV Hybrid is now open for orders in the UK with first customer cars due before the end of the year.
