Honda has released details and images of the HR-V prototype ahead of its world premiere at the 2014 Paris Motor Show.
The HR-V is a small sports utility vehicle (SUV) set for the European market. It fuses a ‘coupé-like design’ with ‘the stability of an SUV’ – a combination mirrored by the BMW X4.
Honda says the coupé-esque design is achieved without affecting the practicality of the cabin. A central fuel tank helps maintain space, while Honda Magic Seats allow a range of seating configurations or can be folded flat for maximum boot space.
“The HR-V is a very welcome addition to our current model line up, it is a very popular and growing market segment that appeals to both retail and corporate customers,” Honda head of car Leon Brannan commented.
The HR-V will debut on October 2nd before it goes in sale in the summer of 2015. Point your eyes towards the two prototype images released by Honda below.
