The car that cares


  • HR-V interior defined by vital ideas of light-weight and wind
  • Special Air Diffusion System introduces progressive all-natural breeze in the cabin
  • Intelligent packaging delivers occupant place equal to greater models
  • Interior capabilities and layout committed to offering functionality and convenience


To mirror the values, fulfill the demands of modern-day customers and build a desirable nonetheless simple automobile, Honda engineers and designers conceived a new proposition for the interior of the following-technology hybrid HR-V. By cleverly incorporating Honda’s most current structural technologies and an interior layout ethos centred on the ideas of light-weight and wind, the all-new design achieves exceptional stages of interior convenience and place in the aggressive compact B-SUV phase.


The element that might have the greatest influence on the over-all interior setting for passengers is also the most refined. The special Air Diffusion System introduces a new notion of air conditioning, with L-formed vents positioned in the best corners of the dashboard offering the restorative outcomes of a all-natural breeze to all occupants.  


“This notion was born from the notion of planning light-weight and wind to increase passenger convenience,” claimed Honda Large Venture Leader, Yoshitomo Ihashi. “We established out to eradicate as lots of regions of irritation as attainable by applying nature as our inspiration. This new ventilation configuration resolves a disparity in classic vent configurations, in which passengers often experience not comfortable with air flowing directly onto them. The consequence is a feeling of airiness, with a a lot more comfortable interior setting for all occupants.”


A dial is offered to swap seamlessly between 3 modes – the regular outlet with ahead-directed air circulation, the Air Diffusion System which results in a new light circulation of air, and shut which shuts off the air. When the Air Diffusion System is picked, it discreetly directs a stream of soft ‘breeze’ like air along the side windows, brushing the cheeks of the entrance passengers. The air also travels to the roof, developing a light vortex of air that does not influence directly on passengers. The warmth transmitted by way of the side windows in summer season is blocked by an air curtain that types close to entrance and rear seat passengers, as is the cold air through wintertime. The rear seat passengers will also advantage from air through the rear console outlet. The mix of these capabilities ensures a regular interior temperature is preserved, in all climate situations.  


Building place and convenience

The premise of the HR-V’s interior layout centres on the interaction between the occupant and the automobile, to completely integrate it inside their every day life. This begins from the moment they enter the automobile to the moment they exit. Just about every factor of interaction with the new HR-V is built close to an optimum person working experience initially.


Each and every interior layout element inside the cockpit structure is committed to reaching a feeling of spaciousness and airiness that connects occupants to the outdoors planet. This begins with windows that are built to admit as substantially light-weight as attainable, with the outstanding outward visibility further more aided by flat line of the bonnet and crystal clear sightlines that make it quick to properly determine the vehicle’s position on the road. 


A elementary consideration for interior convenience was the optimum positioning of the interior controls. The uncluttered, straightforward-to-use layout provides to the feeling of relaxed, with the audio and ventilation controls and instrument panel positioned as shut as attainable to the driver’s industry of vision. Right away recognisable controls allow for for risk-free and intuitive operation.


To keep the harmony of quality SUV styling and excellent interior place, Honda engineers packaged all hybrid drivetrain factors inside the chassis and motor bay, and positioned the gas tank beneath the entrance seats. The origins of this method are located in Honda’s ‘Man-Most, Equipment-Minimum’ (M/M) advancement principle, which is primarily based on the belief that the goal of engineering and layout is to serve the demands of the driver and passengers.


This permitted the freshly-made rear seats to be positioned 30mm further more to the rear, also giving  an more two levels of recline in comparison to the former technology HR-V. When head place is comparable to the course standard, the sedan-like seating position in the HR-V provides an more 35mm legroom and shoulder place comparable to SUV’s a course previously mentioned.


To further more optimise convenience for entrance occupants, the all-new HR-V introduces system stabilising entrance seats that includes mat-structure guidance, changing the former spring established-up. This aids to reduce fatigue on extensive journeys and increase convenience in every day use.


The all-new HR-V e:HEV will be readily available in Europe from late 2021. Customers can sign-up their interest now on the Honda site: https://www.honda.co.uk/autos/new/hr-v-hybrid/hr-v-sign-up-interest/sign-up-interest.html
