New HR-V Sport with 1.5 VTEC TURBO engine
Honda has revealed details of the new HR-V Sport, a specific grade for the revised 2019 model equipped with the 1.5-litre VTEC TURBO 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 VTEC TURBO engine in the new HR-V Sport was first seen in the latest generation Honda Civic. The muscular four-cylinder engine gives the 2019 HR-V enhanced performance, with peak power of 182 PS (134 kW) at 5,500 rpm for 6MT and 6,000 rpm for CVT.
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 that aims to deliver an optimised balance of body rigidity, suspension control and steering feel, the HR-V Sport is equipped with bespoke ‘Performance Damper’ technology. It keeps the car flatter through corners, enhances stability during sudden lane changes, and reduces vibration over uneven roads.
Looking for a larger SUV? well the new CR-V, available in a 1.5-VTEC turbo or Hybrid model, could be your next car. Award winning, the CR-V offers space, versatility and refinement in equal measure. A large luxurious interior, along with Honda’s renowned engineering results in a car for all occasions.
There is much excitement about the arrival of the new 2019 Honda SUVs, the Sport being a great addition to the HR-V range and the CR-V Hybrid perfectly complements the 1.5 VTEC model. You can book a test drive of the all new HR-V Sport along with the existing 1.6 i-DTEC diesel models, together with the CR-V range, at your local dealership.
