Honda has released two photos of the Euro-spec HR-V small crossover that is going to debut next month at the Paris Motor Show. The HR-V is Honda’s new entry in the small SUV segment and will compete with models like the Nissan Juke.
The HR-V is based on the same platform as the new Fit/ Jazz and will be sold under the same name in the U.S., while a slightly different model will be called the XR-V in China.
Honda has yet to unveil the HR-V’s interior, but did reveal that it will get the same Honda Magic Seats as the Fit, with the ability to fold the second row seats completely flat for added cargo space. Honda also hasn’t revealed what will power the HR-V, but in Europe it’s expected that buyers will be able to choose from a 1.6L diesel and the same 1.5L four-cylinder that powers the Fit.
The HR-V will go on sale in Europe by next summer. Honda will announce the details about the U.S. version at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November.
