Honda Australia has just released more details on the soon to be launched new Honda HR-V.

The small SUV model, which is based on the same platform as the Honda Jazz, will arrive in Australian Honda dealerships in February; we now know it will be offered here in four different variants.

Honda is yet to confirm pricing though.

The four models are the VTi, VTi-S, VTi-L and a VTi-L variant with a factory-fitted Advanced Driver Assist System.

Just the one engine will be on offer – a 1.8 litre four-cylinder unit that produces 105kW and 172Nm, transmission choice will be limited to a CVT automatic. Standard features confirmed today by Honda include alloy wheels, folding seats, reverse camera, LED tail-lights and Halogen headlights.

Honda Australia Director Stephen Collins said the new 2015 Honda HR-V is a great mix of adaptability and safety.

“The HR-V features a number of new technologies that we are introducing to our range,”

“With a choice of four variants and loads of specification, there’s an HR-V to suit just about everyone.”

Honda HR-V pricing is expected to be confirmed in January.
