The first model of the series came out in 2016 and get revisions in 2019 and think the 2023 model is going to hit the market as a carryover model.
2020 Honda HR-V Changes
Since it will be a carryover model, we can expect the 2023 Honda HR-V to have the same basic design it had back in 2016 except for the light refreshes it got in 2019. The carryover design includes the Honda Fit-like styling which means a short rear overhang, a sharp nose and hidden rear door handles. The 2019 model also got a new Sport version that comes with blacked characteristics and 18-inch wheels that we also expect in the 2023 model.
As for the interior, the present-day HR-V got a new infotainment system with a physical volume knob that replaced pretty bad touch-sensitive buttons, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The sport version also got a black headliner, some gloss-black trim and port pedals.
Since there are no updates we think the 2023 HR-V’s standard features will not change. Which means it will come with a 5-inch infotainment display, power windows, power door locks, a four-speaker audio system, Bluetooth streaming audio, and so on.
Another area where nothing will change is the powertrain, it is going to have the same 141-horsepower 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission. The only difference is going to be with the paddle shifters with the Sport version and other more expensive models.
The Honda HR-V has great ratings when it comes to safety and is an IIHS Top Safety Pick. But this only goes for EX and higher trims since only those have the automatic braking system. We predict that all these safety features will be there on the 2020 model too.
Price and release date
The 2023 HR-V model will be released somewhere around the end of 2019 and it should go for $21,565 to $29,585.
