2018 Honda HR-V release date
The HR-V is an exciting vehicle, and with 2018 Honda models already arriving at dealership lots, you may be wondering when is the 2018 Honda HR-V release date. Let us assure you that you don’t have much longer to wait. We have answers and we will also discuss the few changes that are taking place for the 2018 model.
2018 HR-V exterior
Relatively fresh of the North American debut of the HR-V back with the 2016 model year, most of the features, options, and trims are staying the same for 2018. This isn’t an all new model like the 2018 Honda Odyssey. In fact, all the changes for this model year are really on the exterior. Take a look at what we mean below.
New color option
For 2018, the Honda HR-V will have a brand new color that you may be familiar with from other Honda models. It’s called, Aegean Blue. This color will be available on select trims and as you can see in the image, it pairs particularly well with the grille.
New rim option
Another thing that Aegean Blue pairs well with is those rims. These are new to the 2018 model. With beautiful silver alloy and sleek black-painted inserts, the HR-V is ready to turn heads. These rims come standard on EX and higher trims.
Other specs of the 2018 HR-V
Not much else in changing for the 2018 HR-V. You can still get the same passenger room with 100.1 cubic-feet of space on the LX and 96.1 cubic-feet of space on the EX and EX-L Navi. The cargo room is still equally impressive too with 58.8 cubic-feet of maximum room in front-wheel drive trims.
The engine is also staying the same. With 141 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque this 1.8-liter engine mates nicely to both the 6-speed manual transmission and the available continuously variable transmission.
When will the 2018 HR-V be available at local dealerships?
Dealerships across the country should start seeing the 2018 Honda HR-V as soon as August 14, 2017. If you live in the Indianapolis area and you are interested, then you should start checking the Indy Honda HR-V inventory Monday. We hope to have them soon.
