2017 Honda HR-V update on sale, priced from $24,990

The 2017 Honda HR-V update has arrived in Australia, and will start to roll out in dealerships mid-May. The update sees satellite navigation now fitted as standard equipment on all grades in the HR-V line-up, from the entry level VTi, all the way through the range to the top-of-the-line VTi-L with Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS).

The satellite navigation system is built into an updated audio system that features a 7.0-inch colour touchscreen.

Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins, said:

“Not only has the HR-V been the top selling model in the Honda range for the past two years, but it is also one of the top selling small SUVs on the market, consistently ranking in the top three sellers in what continues to be an ultra-competitive segment.

“But more importantly for the Honda Australia business, HR-V continues to strike a chord with private buyers, where it leads the Small SUV segment with almost 83 per cent of its total sales over the past 12 months coming from the private sector.”

Under the bonnet of the HR-V sits a 1.8-litre four-cylinder producing 105kW and 172Nm, with all models coming standard with a CVT automatic transmission and front-wheel drive only.

The manufacturer’s list price for all HR-V models will remain unchanged despite the added value in the latest update.

Prices are as follows (all prices exclude on road costs):

Honda HR-V 17YM pricing

VTi 1.8 CVT $24,990
VTi-S 1.8 CVT $27,990
VTi-L 1.8 CVT $33,340
VTi-L with ADAS 1.8 CVT $34,340

2017 Honda HR-V models will be in showrooms around Australia mid-may.
