Honda adds mid-range +Luxe to HR-V line-up
New Honda HR-V +Luxe variant gets enhanced upholstery, heated seats, premium paint
18 Feb 2019
HONDA Australia has added a new +Luxe variant to its HR-V line-up, which is based on the mid-range VTi-S and priced at $29,990 plus on-road costs.
The standard VTi-S is priced at $27,990, however the +Luxe adds premium features including black leather-appointed seat trim, heated front seats, metallic and pearlescent paint options and ‘+Luxe’ badging.
Previously, the uprated seat trim and heated front seats were only available on the higher-grade RS ($31,990) and VTi-LX ($34,590) variants.
The +Luxe is available now in four exterior paint colours – Brilliant Sporty Blue metallic, Lunar Silver metallic, Modern Steel metallic and White Orchid pearlescent.
Honda Australia director Stephen Collins claims that the increased features and sub-$30,000 pricetag for the +Luxe makes for a strong value proposition compared to its rivals in the small SUV segment.
“The HR-V VTi-S is now available with more luxury equipment than ever before courtesy of this exclusive +Luxe package, all the while maintaining the competitive pricing, impressive interior space and unrivalled versatility that are hallmarks of the HR-V range,” he said.
“In the ultra-competitive small SUV segment, the HR-V +Luxe outclasses its main rivals with a list of affordable luxury features they simply cannot match.”
Standard kit carried over from the VTi-S includes a 7.0-inch infotainment display, sat-nav, climate control, an electric parking brake, hill-hold assist, rear parking sensors, automatic LED headlights, push-button start, roof rails and 17-inch alloy wheels.
All HR-V grades are powered by a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine which produces 105kW and 172Nm, driving the front wheels through a continuously variable transmission (CVT).
Fuel consumption is rated at 6.6 litres per 100 kilometres in the base variant, while carbon dioxide emissions average out at 155 grams per kilometre.
Honda Australia sold 12,148 HR-Vs in 2018 for a 2.6 per cent increase year-to-year, making it the sixth most popular small SUV behind the Hyundai Kona (12,352), Subaru XV (12,937), Nissan Qashqai (13,950, Mazda CX-3 (16,293) and the best-selling Mitsubishi ASX(19,034).
