    But, before moving forward, one thing we want to make you aware of is the 12-month waiting period for the SUV. That means that if you book the vehicle now, you would get it by mid of 2023. We hope that’s fine!

    Time to discuss the SUV’s most impressive features now -

    LED lights all around

    The revamped HR-V appears stylish and premium compared to its predecessor and the credit goes to its elevated design language and the LED lights all around. On the front, we see full LED headlights with daytime running lights, LED sequential turn signals, and LED fog lights, while at the rear, the sporty LED tail light strip amps up the SUV’s styling quotient.

    Walk Away Auto Lock

    Honda offers the Walk Away Auto Lock system with the newly introduced HR-V. Once you get 2 metres away from the vehicle with the keys with you, this system senses it and automatically locks the doors. This means now you never have to worry about forgetting to lock the car again.

    Hands-Free Power Tailgate with Walkaway Close function

    Hands-Free Power Tailgate with Walkaway Close function

    Honda offers the first in the segment “Hands-Free Power Tailgate with Walkaway Close function” with the new HR-V. This system activates the sensor when you raise your foot below the rear bumper and opens the boot. It also closes automatically when you walk away from the vehicle with the 'Walkaway Close Switch' switched ON.

    Dual-zone auto air-conditioning with Honda-first Air diffusion system

    The sophisticated interiors of the new HR-V get a dual-zone auto air-conditioning system that customises the cabin temperature to the personal preference of the driver and passengers for amazing comfort. The two-zone climate control is paired with the Honda-first Air Diffusion System, which offers better cooling circulation for all passengers in the cabin, and works only on the side vents. 

    Multi-utility seats

    The Multi-utility seats further give the SUV a distinctive advantage. It comes with the following modes - 

    • Utility mode: This mode lowers the back seats for more boot space and makes the vehicle ready for adventure.
    • Long mode: It reclines the front passenger seat and lowers the back seat to easily accommodate long objects.
    • Tall mode: You can extend the space between the floor and the ceiling with the help of this mode and thus carry tall objects with ease.

With the latter comes a new deceleration selector paddle that offers an engaging drive with intricate controls on the steering wheel. It enables you to slow down on downhill roads and take corners smoothly.
