La ZR-V presentata in variante giapponese è quella che dovrebbe giungere anche in Europa; la e:HEV in questione è dotata dello stesso propulsore della Civic ibrida, cioè il 2.0 CVT unito a due motori elettrici, ma ne sapremo di più tra qualche mese.



ZR-V e:HEV (JP-Spec)







Press Release:



TOKYO, Japan, July 14, 2022 – Honda Motor Co., Ltd. today launched a teaser page on its company website to share initial information on the ZR-V, an all-new SUV scheduled to go on sale in Japan this fall. Honda will release more details about the model in stages, including its plan to begin taking pre-orders in September of this year.

ZR-V teaser page: https://www.honda.co.jp/ZR-V/new/ (Japanese only)


All-new ZR-V


Based on the grand concept of “Unleash your potential,” the all-new ZR-V was developed as a model to uplift the spirit of customers, like a favorite “special day” piece of clothing, and bring out their individuality. Key features include beautiful and sophisticated design, developed under the key words “glamorous & elegant,” and dynamic performance, achieved with a goal to realize driving at the will of the driver. These attributes will enable the driver to enjoy the vehicle with more confidence and in a relaxing manner, a value new to SUV models. 

Key Features



All-new ZR-V adopts smart and elegant design which makes this model fit well in urban environments.

The exterior design features flowing proportions characterized by large, smooth surfaces that flow from front to rear.

The design of the front-fascia features a vertical grille, designed in concert with surrounding areas, and sharp-looking, wide-set headlights that flow horizontally. These features create a highly sophisticated expression, yet with stature and a strong presence.

The rear of the body is shaped to emphasize the vehicle’s wide tread by adding volume around the bottom of the body, with a smooth, upswept look.  

The interior design realized a spacious cabin by adopting an instrument panel that stretches out horizontally in a linear fashion. Moreover, the interior design features a functional and precise finish on all parts to accentuate the beauty of the form, creating a high-quality interior space that is one class above the competition.

In addition, a high-deck center console separates the front seats to create personal space for the driver and front passenger.


By realizing both a low, stable driving position and a view of the road with great visibility, the packaging design enhanced the ease of driving and sense of oneness the driver will feel with this vehicle. In addition to a wide, horizontal forward field of vision, the rear view was designed to make it easier for the driver to recognize objects behind the vehicle, including vehicles and pedestrians, thereby pursuing excellent visibility while driving.

As with the front seats, the hip point of the rear seats was set low to allow greater freedom for the end point of the roof design, resulting in both a sleek roof line and enhanced aerodynamic performance.

Moreover, a variety of user-friendly storage spaces are provided, ensuring excellent utility to meet various customer needs. 


The hybrid model of the all-new ZR-V will be the first Honda SUV to be equipped with the Sports e:HEV that combines a 2.0-liter direct injection engine that debuted on the Civic e:HEV and the advanced 2-motor hybrid system (e-CVT). The all-new ZR-V e:HEV will offer a high-quality, exhilarating and one-class-above driving experience in various driving situations including driving on city and suburban roads, highways and winding roads.

The all-new ZR-V also will be available as a gasoline-powered model equipped with a 1.5-liter turbo engine with CVT, which offers highly-responsive and sporty driving.

Both hybrid and gasoline models offer a real-time AWD variation, which enables customers to drive on snowy roads with greater peace of mind by realizing outstanding performance in making turns and climbing up snowy roads. 

Pre-launch exhibits of all-new ZR-V in Japan

Starting on Saturday, August 13, 2022 (Japan time), Honda will hold pre-launch showcasing of the production models of all-new ZR-V at various locations in Japan. Please visit and enjoy an initial look at the highly-sophisticated ZR-V.

Expressive Exterior Styling
HR-V's all-new design features a low horizontal beltline that begins with the extended hood and continues over the swell of the rear fenders, adding stature to

HR-V's sleek flowing forms. Wide-set LED headlights and taillights highlight HR-V's increased width (2.6 inches wider) and broad-shouldered stance. Overall length has grown by 9.4 inches.

In front, an expressive grille is flanked by air curtain inlets that route air through the bumper and around the front wheels, improving aerodynamic efficiency. For a cleaner upscale look, laser-brazing technology eliminates the need for roof moldings and HR-V's windshield wipers hide under the hood line when not in use.

In the rear, the sculpted hatch and standard tailgate spoiler highlight HR-V's sporty proportions, and the outer edge of the taillights have been shaped to improve aerodynamics.

Each HR-V grade features distinct design details. HR-V LX is highlighted by a matte-finish on its honeycomb-style grille, and the lower section of its front and rear bumpers. Large 17-inch alloy silver-painted wheels are standard.

HR-V Sport gets an even more aggressive horizontal-themed grille mesh, a gloss-black rear spoiler, and a chrome exhaust finisher. The lower portion of the rear bumper is painted gunmetal metallic, and the HR-V Sport's exclusive 18-inch split 5-spoke wheels are finished in gloss Berlina Black.

For a distinctly upscale character, the HR-V EX-L features a unique gloss-black version of the honeycomb grille, gloss black door pillars, and gloss black trim on the front and rear bumpers. EX-L also rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, painted Shark Gray with an exclusive machined finish.

HR-V will be available in seven different colors, including two all-new colors exclusive to HR-V: Nordic Forest Pearl and Urban Gray Pearl.

Simple, Sporty and Spacious Interior
HR-V's clean and sporty interior is a fresh take on Honda's new 'simplicity and something' design direction introduced with the 2022 Civic. Outward visibility is improved thanks to HR-V's low cowl, expansive greenhouse and outside mirrors that have been positioned away from the windshield pillars.

Further improving visibility is the top of the HR-V's wide instrument panel, which has been designed with minimum cutlines to reduce windshield reflections and visual distractions. A striking metal honeycomb mesh accent stretches from door to door across the dash. It serves both form and function, creating a dramatic visual dividing line between the audio, information displays and the climate controls, while the intricate flow-through design conceals the air vents that might otherwise mar the uncluttered and harmonious look of the dash.

Premium materials are used throughout the interior, with close attention paid to the operation of all switchgear and controls, including the click and heft of knobs, stalks and switches. HR-V's center console is uniquely curved and richly upholstered with French stitching. A clever pass-through complete with USB charging ports is ideal storage for small items, such as a smartphone.

All-new Body Stabilizing Seats firmly hold the body, reducing fatigue and enhancing comfort on long drives. The rear seat area is wider to better accommodate three-passengers. It also features thoughtful touches, such as a rear tray for placing a smartphone.

HR-V's standard cargo area (behind rear seat) has been enlarged to 24.4 cu.-ft. (all trims), and its low lift-over height of just over 27 inches makes loading large or heavy items easy. The standard 60/40 split rear seatbacks fold easily to a flat floor, expanding the space to 55.1 cu.-ft. The lower door panels and side panels of the cargo area have been designed with an attractive wavy pattern that better hides scratches and scuffs.

Driver-Focused Technology
Technology has been smartly integrated into the HR-V cabin. For the first time, HR-V features a digital instrument display, while gaining notably larger standard and available color touchscreens featuring standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility.

All HR-V grades are equipped with a 7-inch color LCD instrument display. An all-digital speedometer and tachometer are on the left side of the instrument panel, while a physical speedometer dial occupies the right side. The 7-inch multi-information display also features user-selectable functions such as Honda Sensing® settings, vehicle information and more.

A new 7-inch color touchscreen is standard on LX and Sport models. It features physical knobs for audio system volume and station tuning, buttons along the bottom for switching modes, and a simplified menu structure.

HR-V EX-L comes with a large 9-inch color touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, plus a Qi-compatible wireless charging pad and an upgraded audio system with eight speakers for crisp, clear sound quality. The new touchscreen features a physical volume knob, large, easy-to-recognize icons, and a simplified navigation structure with fewer embedded menus. On the left are hard buttons for Home and Back functions. Other mode selections are at the bottom of the touchscreen, with a 0.8-inch finger rest making it easier to use the touchscreen by providing a stable surface to rest your hand. 

For a sportier driving experience, the new HR-V features a significantly stronger structure, a new independent rear suspension and a larger, more responsive engine.

Based on the new Honda global architecture, like the new 11th-generation Civic, HR-V's new architecture supports improvements in ride, handling and overall refinement. A new fully independent suspension features MacPherson struts in front and a new multilink arrangement in the rear, engineered with low-friction components to improve ride quality, while delivering improved response and a sporty driving feel.

HR-V's wheelbase has been extended to 104.5 inches (+1.7 inches) for a smoother ride and significantly wider tracks (+2.0 inches in the front and +2.5 inches in the rear) increase stability on the road.

Similar to the critically acclaimed steering found on the 11th-generation Civic, the HR-V features a honed steering column and special tuning to the electronics for improved straight-line stability and excellent feel. New larger brakes increase stopping power, while a low-drag caliper design aids fuel efficiency.

Powering every 2023 HR-V is a larger 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine producing 158-horsepower (SAE net @ 6,500 rpm) and 138 lb.-ft. of torque (SAE net @ 4,200 rpm). Compared to the 1.8-liter 4-cylinder in the first-generation HR-V, the new engine is more powerful (+17 hp and +11 lb.-ft. of torque), while delivering improved drivability, refinement, and lower emissions.

The standard continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) has been reengineered for improved power delivery, refinement and engine sound. This new transmission also features a more naturally responsive feel thanks to improved G-Design programming and the addition of Honda's 'Step-Shift' programming, which simulates gear changes when accelerating at full throttle.

For better traction management in slick snowy conditions, HR-V's available Real Time AWD with Intelligent Control™ has been re-tuned to send more engine torque to the rear wheels when things get slippery.

Increasing HR-V's capability and debuting for the first time in a Honda SUV is Hill Descent Control for more control on steep, slippery declines. With the press of a button on the center console, drivers can select a speed between 2 and 12 mph using the brake or gas pedal. Once the pedal is released, HR-V will maintain that set speed, allowing the driver to concentrate on steering for as long as the Hill Descent Control is active.

HR-V drivers can customize the driving experience for different conditions using the drive mode switch on the center console. HR-V features three driving modes, Normal, Eco, and a new Snow mode that alters the drive ratios and throttle mapping to maximize available traction and performance in slick snowy conditions. Eco mode reduces throttle and transmission sensitivity, as well as air conditioning output to help preserve fuel efficiency.

Small Crossover Safety Performance Leadership
The second-generation HR-V is a leader in crossover safety performance thanks to advanced active and passive safety technology that is standard equipment. HR-V features the latest version of Honda's Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) architecture, specifically designed to meet present and anticipated future collision standards, while minimizing additional weight. This is achieved with the extensive use of lightweight materials, such as aluminum and various grades of high-strength steel, as well as an expanded application of structural adhesives.

Honda's latest driver and passenger front airbag technology is now applied to HR-V, designed to cradle the head and offer enhanced protection. For the first time,

HR-V features standard front occupant knee and rear-passenger side impact airbags.

HR-V features the new single-camera Honda Sensing® suite of safety and driver assistive systems first introduced on the 11th-generation Civic. The new system features a 100-degree field of view which is twice as wide as the camera-and-radar setup of the previous system. It can detect feature points of a target and recognize attributes of objects such as a vehicles or pedestrians, as well as white lines, road boundaries such as curbs, other vehicles, pedestrians, bicyclists and road signs.

New for HR-V are Traffic Jam Assist (TJA) and Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), as well as more natural responses for existing features, such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow and Lane Keeping Assist (LKAS).

Additional driver assistive technologies include blind spot information (BSI) for the first time on HR-V. EX-L grades feature four sonar sensors on the front and rear bumpers, which enable Low-Speed Braking Control and front and rear false-start prevention, reducing the likelihood of low-speed collisions.

HR-V now features a Driver Attention Monitor, which issues a warning on the dash if it senses the driver is becoming inattentive. A standard Rear Seat Reminder notifies drivers when exiting the car to check the rear seating area for children, pets or other precious cargo.

Francamente questa strategia Honda  per me è incomprensibile. Da noi quella "nuova" attuale è arrivata lo scorso autunno (successone, non ne ho ancora vista una in giro) e l'anno prossimo negli USA esce già questa? Capisco che magari ai clienti Honda della svalutazione frega poco, ma un modello completamente nuovo ogni 3-4 anni mi sembra davvero troppo.

No, in realtà mi sa che non hai proprio compreso.

Questa è la HR-V per gli Stati Uniti: se arriverà da noi, come probabile, avrà di certo un altro nome e si posizionerà sopra la nostra HR-V e sotto CR-V
