AFTER releasing a Limited Edition version of the City light sedan and HR-V small SUV in August last year, Honda is at it again with the HR-V Limited Edition on sale throughout June priced at $28,990 driveaway.
Costing $1425 more than the VTi donor version, Honda says the Limited Edition adds $3600 of extra value, including 17-inch wheels, rear parking sensors, side steps, smart keyless entry, push-button start and roof rails.
Four exterior paint colours are available – Morpho Blue, White Orchid, Lunar Silver and Modern Steel.
No changes have been made to the HR-V’s powertrain, which still teams a 105kW/172Nm 1.8-litre aspirated four-cylinder engine to a continuously-variable transmission, with power being sent to the front wheels.
Honda Australia director Stephen Collins said that the features of the Limited Edition HR-V could help set it apart from its rivals in the competitive small SUV segment.
“Honda’s limited edition models have proven to be a popular addition to our regular offers, particularly for customers who are cross-shopping against other brands and looking for a great deal,” he said.
“In the competitive small SUV segment, the Honda HR-V Limited Edition outpoints its key rivals with a set of higher value-for-money features they simply can’t match, on top of the recent 2017 year model update that added satellite navigation as standard equipment on all HR-V variants.
“So we’re confident this new model will enable Honda to compete aggressively and maintain the HR-V’s sales momentum throughout 2017.”
In the first five months of 2017 Honda has managed to sell 4761 examples of the HR-V, down 5.7 per cent over the 5048 units it moved to the same time last year.
It currently stands fourth on the small SUV sales table, behind the Mazda CX-3 with 7292 sales, the Mitsubishi ASX (6593) and the Nissan Qashqai (4963).
It has been the second-best performer in Honda’s stable for 2017, selling just 25 fewer units than the Civic small hatch and sedan, which has managed 4786 sales to the end of May.
