New 180bhp Honda HR-V Sport: UK prices revealed

Honda's hot HR-V lands in the UK this April, and can do 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds

Honda has revealed that the new HR-V Sport will land in UK Honda dealerships from April, with a starting price of £27,595. 

The new, mildly hot compact crossover lands as a flagship edition of Honda's SEAT Arona adversary. It gets more power, sporty looks and a high-level of equipment as standard, and is available with a CVT transmission too, priced from £28,245.

The Sport model is equipped with a turbocharged 1.5-litre four-cylinder VTEC petrol engine producing 180bhp and 240Nm of torque. It’s the same engine available in the Civic, sending drive to the front wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox as standard. 

Honda claims that the HR-V Sport is capable of 0-62mph in 7.8 seconds, with top speed clocked at 134mph. Fuel economy has been recorded under WLTP, with Honda claiming 47.9mpg with 135g/km CO2 for the stnadard six-speed manual model. The automatic CVT HR-V Sport will return 47.1mpg, with 137g/km. 

The HR-V Sport also gets some suspension revisions, including new front and rear dampers, which are bespoke for the Sport model. Honda says that the new mechanicals keep the HR-V flatter through corners, increase stability, and improve ride quality as well.

The steering set-up is unique too, as the HR-V Sport’s electric power steering has been tweaked to deliver steadier and smoother responses.

Design wise the HR-V Sport stands out from the regular model with a high-gloss black chrome trim element and black honeycomb grilles.

The Sport model also features black door mirror caps, dual exhausts, LED headlights and 18-inch alloy wheels as standard. In the cabin, new driver and front passenger seats appear, while the upholstery is finished in a combination of black and dark red.
