2023 Honda HR-V Exterior Redesign

If you saw any pictures of this transformed SUV, you will immediately notice that the exterior design isn’t quite the same as before. A huge part of the 2023 HR-V redesign is the clean and sporty look that features a bold grille, longer hood, and sleek roofline. From the side, you will also notice that the SUV is larger than previous models due to the longer wheelbase and wider stance. Yet, it’s still the smallest Honda SUV or the entry-level SUV in the lineup. Here are some notes on the 2023 HR-V exterior redesign:

  • A low horizontal beltline from its extended hood to the rear fenders for a sense of motion
  • A sculpted hatch and functional tailgate spoiler toning its sporty proportions
  • A large greenhouse, door-mounted mirrors, and a low cowl, so you can see your surroundings better
  • Wide-set LED headlights and taillights to accentuate its athletic stance
  • Laser-brazing technology to remove roof moldings and for windshield wipers to hide under hood line for a cleaner look

2023 Honda HR-V Upgraded Performance

When you’re cruising down the streets in Tampa and Zephyrhills with a sleeker HR-V, you will also power up on your drives due to the new performance changes. Find better handling no matter where the road takes you, so you can enjoy every second of your commute even more! The 2023 Honda HR-V performs smoothly thanks to these changes:

  • A more responsive engine
  • A new independent rear suspension
  • Most likely only offered with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) unlike the first-generation model that offered a manual transmission at first
  • All-wheel drive may be possibly offered, making the HR-V stand out from other small crossovers, as many only offer front-wheel drive
