Title: Honda HR-V at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Post by: RichardA on November 20, 2014, 08:42:43 PM

Power to come from the what appears to be the same 138bhp 1.8 i-VTEC petrol engine found in the Civic, fingers crossed we'll get it too. We should get the  the 1.6 i-DTEC diesel from the Civic (Honda would be crazy not to) and the 1.3 i-VTEC rumored to go in the next Jazz.

2016 is the model year. In the US a new model launched in 2015 would normally be promoted as a '2016 Model'.

The article says it'll be in dealerships in the US early next year (2015).  It's already been on sale in Japan (RHD of course, so should be easy to bring here) for several months.
