– Choice of 130 PS or 182 PS petrol and 120 PS diesel engines
– Six-speed manual gearbox and enhanced CVT for petrol models
– Stiff structure gives confidence-inspiring secure driving feel
– Sport model fitted with advanced ‘Performance Damper’ technology

Expanding the range of powertrains available, the new Honda HR-V will be available with a choice of powerful 130 PS (96 kW) 1.5-litre i-VTEC or 182 PS (134 kW) 1.5-litre VTEC TURBO petrol engines, or a highly efficient 120 PS (88 kW) 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel ( available in selected markets only). Each of the four-cylinder engines are engineered to deliver responsive performance together with low fuel consumption.

With an optimal balance of power and efficiency, the 1.5-litre i-VTEC petrol engine produces 130 PS (96 kW) and maximum torque of 155 Nm. Acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes 10.2 seconds when equipped with the six-speed manual (6MT), and 11.7 seconds with the optional CVT. The i-VTEC engine has CO2 emissions from 148g/km* (WLTP) (from 130g/km NEDC correlated) and combined cycle fuel economy from 6.6l/100km to 6.8l/100km* (WLTP).

The 1.5-litre i-VTEC powertrain employs Honda’s VTEC (Variable Timing and Lift Electronic Control) and VTC (Variable Timing Control) technologies, complemented by strong tumble intake ports and an optimised piston shape to provide benefits in output and efficiency. For the latest model, it has been further enhanced by ‘advanced plateau honing’, that lowers the friction level between the pistons and the cylinder bores by creating an ultra-smooth surface. Its timing chain guides also feature a new friction-reducing coating, which further helps to reduce long-term wear and boost engine efficiency.

A new addition to the 2019 HR-V line-up is the powerful 1.5-litre VTEC TURBO engine, which was first seen in the latest generation Honda Civic. This power unit is only available on the new HR-V Sport . This four-cylinder engine gives the compact SUV enhanced performance, with peak power of 182 PS (134 kW) at 5,500 rpm. Equipped with a six-speed manual (6MT) as standard, maximum torque of 240 Nm is delivered between 1,900 rpm and 5,000 rpm. With the optional CVT, 220 Nm is delivered between 1,700 rpm and 5,500 rpm.

The HR-V Sport 6MT accelerates from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 7.8 seconds and will go on to a top speed of 215 km/h (133 mph). When equipped with the optional CVT gearbox, acceleration from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) takes 8.6 seconds, and the top speed is 200 km/h (124 mph).

This efficient diesel engine incorporates extensive technologies that reduce friction, improve emissions and increase fuel economy. The 1,597cc engine features a small, high-efficiency turbocharger, low-pressure EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system and a high-intake flow, high-swirl cylinder head port. A high-strength, lightweight slender crankshaft and all-aluminium, open-deck, high-pressure, die-cast engine block also help to keep the engine’s weight as low as possible.

Powered by the diesel engine – which generates 120 PS at 4,000 rpm and 300 Nm of torque at 2,000 rpm – the new HR-V accelerates to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 10.0 seconds, placing it among the most dynamic vehicles in its class.

Both the petrol and diesel engines are equipped with a six-speed manual transmission as standard. A lightweight and high-rigidity shaft improves the overall efficiency of the transmission, while a shorter gear throw than other SUVs in the segment provides a sportier feel.

Available as an option for the two 1.5-litre petrol engines, Honda’s popular CVT offers a natural ‘multi-gear’ feel through the use of control software – exclusive to Europe – which simulates seven speeds, and provides optimised gear change mapping.

Honda’s turbine twin-damper torque converter technology further enhances the optional CVT, which reduces the fluctuation in torque input to the transmission, improving durability as well as NVH management. It delivers a more direct response to engine speed, which results in a more linear feel for the driver.

HR-V buyers in Europe will benefit from Honda’s Synaptic Damping Control (SDC) system, which was introduced for the first time in the 2015 HR-V. Fitted to all models as standard, the system enhances both ride comfort and handling by modifying damping force according to the road surface and driving conditions.
