At present Toyota,Chevrolet,Nissan etc… are the big names in this arena and soon Honda is going to join them. Honda has been giving information about this model in bits and pieces since the auto show in Detroit in 2013.Although it has been on sale in Japan from 2013 itself not by the name HR-V though and also a version has been released in Europe as well but the American version is still to be unleashed. Automakers are more focussed to expand their business these days by adding new segments and SUVs is a major area of interest.Not only Honda but other manufacturers such as Mercedes Benz are much eager to enter this arena.

The HR-V is unusually spacious and versatile with a foldable rear seat which can be utilized to increase cargo capacity. The company has yet not revealed the details about the engines and transmission but it is expected to come with a 4 cylinder 138 horsepower engine.
