In the United Kingdom, a new Honda HR-V Sport model will arrive by April this year. Its manual variant will cost €31,770, while the CVT version will cost €33,209).

This is even higher than what the Honda CR-V, clearly a much bigger and plusher car, costs in the UK. The Honda CR-V has a base price of €29,928 and €32,081 for the SE model. What makes the Honda HR-V Sport costlier though is the higher equipment and the slightly more powerful engine.
