Honda HR-V gets a new 1.5-litre turbo VTEC engine

Honda HR-V gets a new 1.5-litre turbo VTEC engine

- New version for HR-V range equipped with a 182bhp petrol engine

- Sport variant fitted with advanced 'Performance Damper' technology

- Dynamic styling pack with black chrome elements, 18-inch alloy wheels

Honda has revealed details of the new HR-V Sport, a specific variant for the revised 2019 model equipped with the 1.5-litre turbo VTEC petrol engine as well as upgrades to the chassis and suspension. The HR-V Sport benefits from the refreshed exterior styling and interior upgrades of the standard 2019 HR-V, with additional bespoke design features. 

The 1.5-litre engine in the new HR-V Sport was first seen in the latest generation Civic. The four-cylinder engine gives the 2019 HR-V enhanced performance, with peak power of 182bhp at 5,500rpm for 6MT and 6,000rpm for CVT. Equipped with a six-speed manual as standard, maximum torque of 240 Nm is delivered between 1,900 rpm and 5,000 rpm. With the optional CVT, 220 Nm is delivered between 1,700rpm and 5,500rpm. 

Honda developed the HR-V Sport to cater to buyers who want a sportier driving experience from a subcompact SUV. As part of a package, the HR-V Sport is equipped with bespoke 'Performance Damper' technology. The damper system is integrated at the front and rear of the car and works by counteracting the relative lateral and torsional movement through the chassis. It keeps the car flatter through corners, enhances stability during sudden lane changes, and reduces vibration over uneven roads. 

Upgrades to the exterior design include a new interpretation of Honda’s 'Solid Wing Face’ graphic, with a high-gloss black chrome panel that replaces the darkened chrome of the standard 2019 HR-V. A black honeycomb finish is applied to the front grille garnish, which also carries over into the fog light surrounds. 

The HR-V Sport comprises dynamic styling elements, including a slim front splitter, side skirts, plus wheel arch mouldings and a more aggressive rear bumper – all finished in black. Sport trim also includes black door mirror caps, dual exhaust pipes and 18-inch alloy wheels in a unique design. 

LED headlights come as standard and incorporate high and low beams, LED indicators and LED daytime running lights. At the rear, a black chrome garnish across the tailgate mirrors the trim at the front, while the tail lights are enhanced with a dark ‘smoked’ effect and black inner bars as the standard 2019 HR-V. Production of the 2019 model year HR-V Sport is set to start in December 2018, with the first customer deliveries early next year.
