All-New Honda HR-V Officially Launched at Lower Price Than Sportage and Tucson

The compact crossover SUV segment has become slightly more exciting as Honda Atlas Cars Limited (HACL) has officially launched the all-new HR-V in Pakistan.

Being the latest product, HR-V stands head-and-shoulders above its key competitors i.e. Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage, both of which are now a generation old.

Let us have a closer look at the vehicle:

Exterior Styling

In terms of styling, HR-V is much simpler compared to its predecessor, which is a positive attribute.

The front end looks dignified, yet distinctive, with a large body-colored front grille and sleek headlights. The sharp Daytime Running Lights (DRLs), add to the menacing look. The elongated and straightened-out bonnet design allows for a sophisticated look.

The side profile features smooth and simple lines. In Pakistan, HR-V gets 17″ alloy rims that are an improvement over the previous generation.

The rear end is also simple, yet futuristic. The LED lights, a forward-leaning tailgate, and a central trim down below allow for a subdued look.


Honda has extensively revised HR-V’s interior. A minimalistic dashboard design and silver trim pieces at various points in the cabin, and ambient lighting give the interior a premium feel.

It has a large top-mounted infotainment screen that features Apple Carplay and Android Auto. The base variant is dressed in soft fabric, while the top variants have leatherette upholstery.

Being larger than the previous model, the new HR-V is roomier. Overall, it offers decent features and utility inside.


Here is what we know about HR-V’s proportions:

Measurements Honda HR-V
Wheel Base 2,610 mm
 Overall Width 1,790 mm
Overall Length 4,385 mm
Overall Height 1,590 mm
Ground Clearance (Unladen) 185 mm
Curb Weight 1,320 KG


HR-V has two variants. Both variants have a naturally aspirated 1.5-liter four-cylinder petrol engine borrowed from a BR-V (latest generation), that sends 119 horsepower (hp) and 145 Newton-meters (Nm) of torque to the front wheels only via a CVT automatic transmission.


It has McPherson struts up front and a torsion bar coil spring setup in the back. It is also fitted with disc brakes on all four wheels with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD), and Brake Assist (BA) technology to allow for decent stopping power.

According to various international forums, HR-V has a fuel economy of 13 liters per kilometer, however, the figures are likely to be different in Pakistan.


The new HR-V is loaded with modern features including:

Safety Convenience
4 Airbags Multiple Drive Modes
Hill-Start Assist Smart Infotainment System
ABS Electronically Folding Mirror
Fog Lights 12 Volt Socket
Backup Camera USB Connectivity
Immobilizer System and Burglar Alarm Automatic Climate Control
Central Power Door Locks Keyless Entry
ISO Fix Child Seat Anchors Steering Wheel Multimedia-Control Switches
Electronic Parking Brake Adjustable Steering Wheel
Wireless Charging (Top Variant) Semi-Digital Gauge Cluster
Vehicle Stability Control Traction Control Auto-Dimming Mirror (Top Variant)


Contrary to HACL’s tradition, the prices of HR-V variants are relatively reasonable, which gives it a slight advantage against its adversaries. The prices are as follows:

Variants Prices (PKR)
HR-V VTi 1.5 5,999,000
HR-V VTi-S 1.5 6,199,000


Despite being a compact SUV that competes with Hyundai Tucson and Kia Sportage, its price is slightly below both. Although Rs. 6 million is not a small amount, those who want performance, brand value, style, comfort, and utility will see the all-new HR-V as the best option.

    • VTI engines used to have similar average. I drove civic vti 2006 model, bought in 2012, for 5 years with an average of 9-10km per litre

    • You must also go for a test drive of Peugeot 2008 top variant before finalising your decision

  • To get Car Leasing Services for this specific HRV OR any SUV ,or above 1000 cc car for 5 years plan. And more than 3million finance limit. Just Contact

  • If it has BR-V engine then it is not a powerful vehicle, plus the fuel economy of BR-V is not good at all lower than Civic whic is 1800cc. So putting up big body on same engine of BR-V will not be economical.

  • How can you compare this with Tucson and Sportage? Both are 2000cc and this car is 1500cc. So of course it is supposed to be lower in price than both.

    • Very valid point. Both these are C-Segment SUV and HRV is B or You may cal it B+ Segment vehicle. It’s competitors are Peugeot 2008, MG ZS, Kia Stonic, Tego 4

  • It’s too early to say, but so far from videos i observed cheap plastic look of interior. And 1.5k cc equipped with CVT seems not very reliable option for mid size suv. Indeed time will tell.

  • In correct comparison, how can you compare B Segment HRV with C Segment Sportage / Tuscon.
    HRV can be compared with Peugeot 2008 only

  • 13 litres per km fuel economy!! isn’t it surprise!!
    SUV should be AWD or 4WD other wise it’s not a off-road vehicle
