Honda HR-V Special Edition Crossover Launched at 2016 GIIAS


Honda HR-V Special Edition is priced at IDR 311.5 million, equivalent to Rs. 15.91 lakhs

Japanese car maker Honda has launched the HR-V special Edition crossover at the ongoing 2016 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS). The upmarket looking stylish crossover comes with a price tag of IDR 311.5 million, equivalent to Rs. 15.91 lakh. The car will lock horn with the Mazda CX-3, once the latter one gets launched in Indonesia. The Mazda CX-3 is expected to launch in India in a few month.

Honda HR-V is a quite popular premium crossover. But the car is unlikely to hit the Indian markets in near future, as Honda Car India believes; it is too expensive for the Indian domestic market. Meanwhile, the Honda HR-V special Edition model comes with sharp wrap around headlamps, thick chrome bar between the headlamps. The radiator grille appears in a V shape, with chrome garnished horizontal slats.

Power source for the crossover includes two different petrol engine options – a 1.5 litre and a 1.8 litre i-VTEC petrol engines. The smaller engine churns out 120 PS of peak power and 145 Nm of peak torque. While the 1.8 litre i-VTEC engine kicks out 139 PS of peak power and 169 Nm of peak torque.
