Honda Shares a Sneak Peek at the New 2023 HR-V

The new 2023 Honda HR-V looks very much like the Japanese Vezel introduced almost a year ago


  • The new subcompact SUV launches later this year.

  • The HR-V lives in the CR-V’s shadow but it’s one of the better options in its segment.


The Honda HR-V arrived for the 2016 model year in North America and quickly became a favorite among small SUV buyers looking for ultimate practicality. After six model year with minimal changes, the new generation 2023 HR-V arrives later this year.

No other subcompact SUV offers as much interior space as the HR-V does but its life has not always been easy. Wedged between the best-selling Civic and CR-V, the HR-V has still managed to carve out a loyal following of efficient urban SUV buyers.

The all-new 3rd generation HR-V was introduced a year ago in Japan. There, it is called the Vezel and is offered with a hybrid powertrain. The shared teaser images by Honda show an aggressive-looking HR-V but the reality is that it will probably be indistinguishable from its Japanese counterpart when it arrives later this year.

What remains to be seen is if Honda will offer the hybrid powertrain and what will their pricing strategy be. Honda’s had a difficult time moving its smaller models like the HR-V and the Fit due to being priced far too close their compact siblings.
