Honda has tweaked the standard specification of its HR-V small SUV adding satellite navigation as standard across the range while leaving prices unchanged.
All three HR-V variants, VTi, VTi-S, and VTi-L pick up satellite navigation as standard via the in-dash 7.0 inch touchscreen where previously none of the range offered the feature either standard or as an option.
Pricing for range remains as it was with the entry-level HR-V VTi starting from $24,990 plus on road costs.
The rest of the HR-V’s specification is unchanged with rear magic seats, 16-inch alloy wheels, and a rear view camera for the VTi, Lane watch camera, autonomous braking, rain sensing wipers, 17-inch alloys and fog lights for the VTi-S and leather seat trim, dual-zone climate control and a panoramic sunroof on the VTi-L.
VTi-L buyers can also option Honda’s Advanced Driver Assist System (ADAS) which brings lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and high beam support to the features list, but lesser models go without the option of safety upgrades.
All HR-V models are powered by a 105kW/172Nm 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with a CVT automatic and front wheel drive.
Update: Due to a compatibility issue with the new navigation-compatible head unit Honda has dropped its Lane Watch blind spot camera system from the VTi-S and VTi-L grades temporarily, with Honda Austrailia public relations manager, Neil McDonald telling TMR that a solution is being sought to allow the reintroduction of LaneWatch, but no timeline was yet available.
HR-V VTi - $24,990
HR-V VTi-S - $27,990
HR-V VTi-L - $33,340
HR-V VTi-L + ADAS - $34,340
