We all know how the old HR-V looked. Not much more than a box on wheels If you ask us, but not this new 2022 Honda HR-V. This new model has a more coupe-like look with a focus on trendy minimalist design and a more premium looking cabin. From the outside, the 2022 Honda HR-V is nothing short of a head-turner. It’s notable design cues include its striking front-end that features a pair of newly shaped headlights and a sporty grille. The grille looks beautiful and much classier at night though.
The rear door handles are integrated for that two-door illusion. We honestly were taken by surprise on how seamlessly the door handle connects with the design. At the back, there’s a sloping roofline which completes the HR-V’s coupe-inspired look. The aboslutely highlight in the rear are the unified taillights. Ultra modern and sleek, look very trendy at night.

2022 Honda HR-V Specs:
Our first impression of the 2022 Honda HR-V’s cabin was of being pleasantly surprised. It’s spacious interior has a solid, premium SUV feel that is modern and minimalist at the same time. This aesthetic is created by the horizontal sweep of the instrument panel and uncluttered lines and surfaces throughout. A stylish horizontal dashboard layout sets the scene for a ride focussed on the road ahead with an intuitive infotainment screen that defines contemporary design.
The feeling of airiness and space is elevated by a new air diffusion system that creates a curtain of fresh air beside and above passengers, flowing from unique L-shaped vents positioned in the top corners of the dashboard.
Let’s also shed some light at the panoramic sunroof that filles the cabin with natural light, making it all the more roomy.
We can easily seat two adults in the back and if you are not really fussy about leg room, you can squeeze in a third person as well. An added feature Dubai residents will really appreciate is the ability to reconfigure the rear seats with a single motion. It instantly converts the modular interior into space for a surf/paddle board or even a bike.
This has been possible due to the center tank layout, which allows more interior space. From a safety point of view, its worth noting that the 2022 Honda HR-V is based on Advanced Compatibility Engineering (commonly called ACE Body Structure). This is an advanced automobile body structure design that distributes collision energy evenly and redirect it away from the passenger compartment, while at the same time, minimizing damage to other impacted vehicles.
2022 Honda HR-V Fuel Economy:This is undoubtedly the best part of the vehicle. You cant run out of fuel in this car because it hardly consumes any! We drove the car for a week inside Dubai’s toughest traffic jams, school runs, office rush hour and calculated the fuel economy to be 7.6 liters per 100 kilometers travelled.
Once on the highway and cruising at top speed, we noticed the fuel economy improve dramatically where we were only spending 5 liters per 100 km travelled. Now this is top class and not many cars in the world could compete with these numbers.
