Honda HR-V Priced Under $25k

Honda has slotted its HR-V right into the middle of the burgeoning baby SUV segment.

The Japanese brand has released final pricing and specifications for its high-riding hatchback ahead of its arrival in showrooms early next month.

Like the Jazz city car on which it is based, the HR-V will be available in three model grades starting at $24,990 (plus on-road costs) for the entry-level VTi variant which features 16-inch alloy wheels, conventional air conditioning and headlights and a seven-inch colour touch screen with Bluetooth audio connection and a reversing camera.

Stepping up to the mid-range VTi-S brings a $3000 premium but adds larger 17-inch alloys, keyless entry and push button start, LED headlights and front fog lights and rain-sensing wipers as well as automated emergency braking and a blind spot monitor.

The range-topping VTi-L costs $32,990 and adds steering wheel paddle shifters for the CVT automatic, leather interior trim, a panoramic sunroof, front and rear parking sensors, privacy glass and dual-zone climate control. For an additional $1000, customers can option a suite of additional safety features to the VTi-L including forward collision and lane departure warnings as automated high beams.

Metallic paint on costs an additional $575 on all variants, which share the same mechanical underpinnings that links a 105kW/172Nm 1.8-litre four cylinder with a CVT automatic to drive the front wheels.

While the HR-V's pricing places it above key rivals like the Ford Ecosport, Holden Trax and Mitsubishi ASX, all are fitted as standard with a manual transmission.
