Motoring press seem to think the new HR-V will get a slightly detuned version of the CR-V power train initially then a lower powered version based on the existing Jazz power train at a later date.
However, I really wonder if Honda will want the complications of 2 power trains and just adopt one, a slightly beefed up version of the Jazz system. Also canít see why they would need a 4 wheel drive version either, the competition Juke etc. is almost exclusively front wheel drive.

Latest reports today from Hondas confirm total of 129 BHP with 1.5 litre petrol engine. Same drivetrain Hybrid system as latest Jazz and CR-V.
So it looks like a beefed up version of the Jazz engine rather than a downscales version of the CR-V 2.0 L engine. Pricing from £22,000 which should make interesting comparisons with the Crosstar when all is revealed later this year. What Car website has more informations and I expect it will soon be in all the motoring press.

The press release states that ground clearance and seat height are raised 10mm from the previous HR-V but the roof is 20mm lower which means that the headroom has been squeezed by 30mm. Perhaps the panoramic roof will no longer be an option and the total height won't be much more than the Crosstar. The big difference may be the HR-V's larger boot and slightly wider cabin. I also wonder what the ride quality will be like on British road surfaces with 18 inch wheels unless these are shod with big tyres.

Yippe. Real heater controls.  ::)

I think the tide is finally turning against using touch screens for everything. The volume control on the new Jazz radio is also a knob. I have seen a few makes return to knobs for climate control etc.

129 hp would be disappointing. The US Insight has 151 and its the same engine.

If this https://www.hrvforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1598&sid=dfd7414728b4a302247499d82ea43280#p7748 is correct the you might be able to order before the end of this year for delivery next spring.

Make a list of the features which matter to you and compare the two vehicles. The HR-V is slightly wider and significantly longer than the Crosstar and much of that extra length is given to the boot. The Crosstar's boot isn't generous. The HR-V probably has slightly higher seats but I suspect that you'd struggle to notice the difference. My best guess is that the HR-V will be about 15% thirstier than the Crosstar and I anticipate that the 18" wheels on the HR-V will be less good at smoothing out the grotty road surfaces than the Crosstar's 16" wheels with higher profile tyres.

129 hp would be disappointing. The US Insight has 151 and its the same engine.
The european version is probably focussed on getting better fuel economy. It's actually the torque from the motor which is the biggest factor in performance under most driving conditions.

Thanks for your advice John. The Crosstar "ticked all the boxes" except a boot size which is essential for me having two kids need a extra space for pram and other stuff. I am thinking to buy the Crosstar and purchase roof box (which is not the best option)...

That's true in theory. But my Jazz keeps the battery level (between 3 and 4 bars) so low that you hardly ever get it's full torque. I hope they'll spend the HR-V a better battery management or a sport mode which keeps the battery in the upper half of the scale.

You will still get the full torque, if the battery is low, then the engine will cut in, to generate the required power power, to compensate and assist the battery.
Quite happy with my Mk4, goes like a bat out of hell, if I want it to, much better than my previous Mk3 CVT,

Totally agree Kenneve.
Not long had the Crosstar but drives so much better than the MK3.

Unfortunately I had to rule out jazz/crosstar after driving on a motorway with velocities around 120km/h (limit 130km/h). Too much bothersome noise from the engine. And when comparing available parameters between HR-V and Jazz I'm afraid it'll be same with the bigger car. I run 1/3 of my driving on a motorway.

Would like to buy Honda but will have to turn to Toyota CH-R probably which has a stronger engine.
