The Uniquely Personal and Functional 2016 Honda HR-V Launches in July. Bringing a Shot of Energy to Growing subcompact SUV Market

Coupe-like style and sportiness blends perfectly with SUV usability to create segment-defining subcompact crossover

MARKHAM, ON., April 30, 2015 – With bold and sporty coupe-like styling, SUV versatility, 6.7L/100 km highway fuel economy rating (2WD CVT), and Honda packaging magic, the all-new 2016 Honda HR-V is set to challenge the growing subcompact SUV market when it hits Honda dealerships across Canada on July 10. The all-new Honda HR-V crossover will deliver incredible value with a long list of standard features and technologies including 17-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, Display Audio System, rearview camera with guidelines, and Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®1 – all for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) starting at just $ 20,690.

Available in LX, EX and EX-L Navi trims, the 2016 HR-V is powered by a highly refined and efficient 1.8-litre 4-cylinder 16-valve DOHC i-VTEC® engine producing a peak 141 horsepower2 and 127 lb.-ft. of torque3. The engine is paired with one of two efficient and responsive Honda transmissions, a seamless and sporty continuously variable transmission (CVT), available on all models, or an engaging, short-shifting 6-speed manual transmission, available on LX and EX models with 2WD.

The HR-V also targets class-leading safety ratings and features Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure for enhanced frontal collision protection. The HR-V is expected to achieve top safety ratings: an NCAP five-star Overall Vehicle Score from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). 


Developed on the new global platform, the HR-V utilizes a centre-mounted fuel tank layout and reconfigurable 2nd-Row Magic Seat® to deliver voluminous interior space along with a flexible cabin featuring multiple seating/cargo modes. With 2835 Litres of passenger space and 1665 Litres of cargo volume (LX FWD) with the 2nd-Row seats folded down, the HR-V has space to rival some competitors’ compact SUV offerings.

The HR-V’s dynamic appearance and sporty, solid stance is aided by its coupe-like cabin shape and bold and powerfully tapered face. Distinctive side contours, including a sharply upswept character line and deeply sculpted lower body flow into a tapered rear fascia that adds to the visual appeal. Concealed rear door handles further enhance the HR-V’s coupe-like appearance.

The equally sporty and sophisticated interior features an expansive, airy cockpit with an abundance of soft-touch materials and premium detailing punctuated by precise bezels, sophisticated stitch lines and up-market brushed chrome and piano black highlights – all fitting its mission as a youthful yet refined personal crossover vehicle. The three-meter driver’s instrument cluster features “floating” illumination rings and Honda’s ECO Assist feature, wherein the speedometer illumination changes from white to green depending on current fuel efficiency.


Powertrain and Drivetrain
Power comes from a highly refined and responsive 1.8-liter SOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine with i-VTEC® valvetrain, producing a peak 141 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 127 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,300 rpm. The engine is mated to a sporty and fuel-efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT) with Honda “G-design” shift logic, or a slick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission (LX and EX FWD). The HR-V is available with front-wheel-drive or with Honda’s Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control System for outstanding all-weather traction and control.


Body and Chassis
The HR-V utilizes a unique centre-mounted fuel tank layout that enables the 2nd-Row Magic Seat® to fold completely flat into the floor, creating a more spacious and versatile interior package. Driving efficiency, handling performance and cabin quietness are further aided by an aerodynamic shape and a lightweight yet rigid body structure with significant noise-insulating materials and design features. The body utilizes Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure for enhanced frontal collision protection, and 27 percent of the body is composed of advanced ultra-high strength steel for improved rigidity that enhances collision-protection, handling response, ride quality and a quiet cabin environment.

Fully independent front and torsion-beam rear suspension systems with amplitude reactive dampers maximize rear seating and cargo space while also providing outstanding handling characteristics and ride quality. Electric Power Steering (EPS) provides a refined and sporty steering feel while minimizing energy requirements. All models feature power-assisted four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) and Hill Start Assist, an Electric Parking Brake (EPB) with Automatic Brake Hold, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels and 215/55R17 all-season tires.


Safety and Driver-Assistive Technology
Utilizing advanced safety technologies and design features, including Honda’s next-generation ACE body structure, the HR-V is expected to achieve top-class collision safety performance ratings – a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and a TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), including a GOOD rating in the rigorous IIHS small-overlap frontal collision test.

Standard safety and driver-assistive features include four-channel anti-lock brakes (ABS) with Brake Assist and Hill Start Assist; Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®6)electronic stability control system; an Expanded View Driver’s Mirror; a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera7; dual-stage, multiple-threshold front airbags; driver and front passenger SmartVent® side airbags; side-curtain airbags for all outboard seating positions;. Honda LaneWatch®9 display is included with EX and EX-L Navi trims. Furthermore EX-L Navi trim is equipped with Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Lane Departure Warning (LDW) safety systems.

Features and Trims
The HR-V offers a high level of standard equipment for an affordable crossover vehicle, along with a long list of available premium features to accommodate a wide variety of consumer needs. LX and EX trims with front-wheel drive can be equipped with either the 6-speed manual transmission or sporty continuously variable transmission (CVT),. Models with Real Time AWD™ are available only with a CVT.

Civic 2016



Honda Debuts Sportiest Civic Design in Brand History with 10th-Generation Civic Concept at New York International Auto Show 

• 10th-generation, 2016 model year Civic focuses on sporty, fun-to-drive dynamics
• Civic lineup to include Sedan, Coupe, and 5-door Hatchback body types, as well as Si and Type-R versions
• First Honda model to apply new VTEC® Turbo engines in North America
• Civic, Canada’s most popular passenger car is designed, developed and produced in North America
• Honda of Canada Mfg.(HCM) serves a global lead for the sedan and coupe Civic production


NEW YORK, April 1, 2015 – Today Honda unveiled its ultra-sporty Civic Concept at the New York International Auto Show as the brand prepares to launch its completely reimagined 10th-Generation Civic models beginning this fall. With a sharper focus on spirited performance and class-leading versatility, the new Civic lineup will include Civic Sedan, Coupe and Si models along with the return of the Civic hatchback, followed by the launch of a new Civic Type-R as the performance flagship of the Civic lineup. The new Civic also will be the first North American model to apply new VTEC® Turbo engines from the company’s Earth Dreams Technology™ powertrain series.

“The new Civic will be, flat out, the most dynamic, the most technologically advanced and the most refined and stylish Civic we’ve ever made,” said Dave Gardner, senior vice president of operations, Honda Canada Inc. “We couldn’t be prouder to be the global manufacturing lead for this epic vehicle, and they’ll be built by Canadians right in here in our renowned Alliston, Ontario facility.”

The Civic Concept provides a tantalizing glimpse forward to the thrilling design direction for the all-new 10th-generation Civic lineup launching in Canada this fall. Featuring a longer wheelbase and lower, wider stance, the new Civic emphasizes its aggressive personality and engaging experience behind the wheel. Proportionally it boasts a longer hood, a shorter front overhang, a more set-back greenhouse and a shorter rear deck, lending the Civic Coupe a more athletic and “in motion” appearance.

The low and wide proportions are underscored by its more aggressive wheel-to-body relationship and pronounced fender arches. Its sporty and expressive face is highlighted by bright new LED headlights flanking the “Flying H” Honda grille which is supported by deeply sculpted lower air intakes.

“Charismatic, connected and athletic, our goal was to create a design that is emotional and sporty yet with a sense of timelessness and simplicity,” said Guy Melville-Brown, Chief Exterior designer of the Civic concept, Honda R&D Americas, Inc. “In this we set out to create a vehicle that goes beyond the superficial and embraces the very philosophy of what a true Civic should be, a real game changer.”

The 10th-generation Civic is based on a compact platform that targets benchmark levels of efficiency, dynamic performance, safety and production efficiency. Leveraging this new platform in conjunction with new Earth Dreams Technology™ powertrains – including a new 1.5-liter VTEC® Turbo engine with direct injection, a short-shifting 6-speed manual transmission, and a new, more sporty and efficient continuously variable transmission (CVT) – the Civic will target class-leading fuel economy ratings and fun-to-drive performance with near-luxury levels of cabin quietness and ride refinement.

The new Civic will also target class-leading levels of safety performance and will offer the Honda Sensing™ suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, including Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control and Honda LaneWatch™, along with Honda’s next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure.

The new Civic marks the first time that development of both the sedan and coupe models is being led by a North American R&D team, with design led by a team from Honda’s Los Angeles design studio and development centered in the company’s Raymond, Ohio vehicle development centre The North American version of the Civic Sedan will be produced in Alliston, Ontario and Greensburg, Indiana. The Civic Coupe and Si models will also be manufactured in Alliston. It also marks a milestone and for the first time HCM serves as the global lead plant for the Civic Sedan and Coupe production. The VTEC Turbo engine will be produced in Alliston Ontario as well as Anna, Ohio. The CVT will be produced in Russells Point, Ohio. Together, these four Honda plants have invested in new equipment, processes and training to prepare for new Civic production, which will use domestic and globally sourced parts. Production of the five-door hatchback will take place at the company’s Swindon, UK plant.
