Honda features look impressive across its wide range of HR-Vs

Honda in Ireland have announced that the new Honda HR-V subcompact crossover, which goes on sale here this month, will be priced from €23,995 for the 1.5 i-VTEC petrol, and from €25,995 for the frugal 1.6 i-DTEC diesel.

The entry level SE model will feature such things as alloy wheels, climate control, cruise control, Bluetooth, dusk-sensing automatic headlamps and a city-brake active system fitted as standard.

The mid-grade ES model, priced from €26,595, adds a range of premium features including, front and rear parking sensors, 17” alloy wheels and Honda’s advanced Dynamic Safety Pack, including lane departure warning, forward collision warning and traffic sign recognition. A ‘Smart Touch’ interior includes touch panel controls for the upgraded dual-zone climate control, as well as the new android-powered Honda Connect infotainment system.

Customers choosing the top-grade EX model (from €30,895) will appreciate the full leather interior with heated front seats, smart entry and start, satellite navigation and a rear-view camera.

For those seeking finance packages, competitive PCP options for the dynamic and distinctive new Honda will start from €255 per month for petrol, and from €275 for the 1.6 i-DTEC diesel at 6.9% APR, bringing exceptional affordability to the family crossover segment.

The new Honda HR-V arrives in Honda Dealerships across Ireland this month.

In the meantime, Honda has also announced that the all-new Honda Jazz supermini will be priced from €17,395 for the entry-level SE model, rising to €21,900 for the flagship EX CVT model.

The all-new Jazz will build on the strong reputation of its highly successful predecessors.

A new platform increases overall length by 95 mm, but highly efficient packaging means that the latest Jazz is proportionally even bigger on the inside than the previous generation model.

Occupants will benefit from both boot space (354 litres with the rear seats up and 1,314 litres with the rear seats down) and passenger space that are unrivalled in the class.

It too goes on sale this month.
