At the New York auto show, Honda revealed that its new compact CUV will be called the HR-V and will arrive on the market some time next winter.
Honda says the Fit and HR-V together represent a significant growth opportunity for the company and building both models at its newest North American plant enables production flexibility to meet market demand.
Among features shared with the Fit will be Honda's Magic Seat, which allows for multiple seating configurations and the ability to fold the second row seat completely flat for added cargo space.
Bigger than the Fit but smaller than the CR-V, the HR-V will be the entry point to Honda's utility-vehicle lineup. More details will be announced later in the year.
