For many Singaporeans, the Honda HR-V (and its PI Vezel counterpart) is the closest we have ever been to having a national car since 2014, found almost everywhere around the island. And now, it has a successor.
We are quite pleased with how much the HR-V has evolved. Its avant-garde futuristic design brings it up to speed with the rest of the compact SUV competition, while retaining Honda’s signature day-to-day practicality.
