The Honda HR-V Will Be Unveiled In Los Angeles

After announcing at this year’s New York Auto Show that we would get a new compact SUV closely related to the Vezel (which is currently sold in Japan), Honda just revealed that we will be able to see the North American version for the first time at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 19th.

Sharing its underpinnings with the Honda Fit, this new HR-V will become the brand’s smallest SUV, slotting below the CR-V. We don’t yet know what engine will sit under its hood, but rumours talk about the 1.5 litre mill that is also found in the Fit.

The Honda HR-V should arrive in dealerships this winter.
