Signals for the presence of the new generation of Honda HR-V in Indonesia are increasingly being heard. This time an additional new HR-V model appeared on the DKI Jakarta Samsat NJKB (Motorized Vehicle Sales) page.
In the NJKB Samsat Jakarta page, there are four new Honda HR-V models registered. Consists of models E, S, SE, and RS.
All models use a CVT transmission system. While the engine capacity is 1,500 cc, but the 1,800 cc variant is not registered.
If you look at the specifications of the Honda HR-V in Japan, the 1,500 cc i-VTEC engine has 118 PS of power at 6,600 rpm with a maximum torque of 142 Nm at 4,300 rpm.
Unlike in Japan, this medium SUV is also offered with a more environmentally friendly hybrid engine option. The HR-V e:HEV has an electric motor that produces 131 PS with a maximum torque of 253 Nm. The electric motor is mated to a 1,500 cc Atkinson-cycle engine producing 106 PS with a maximum torque of 127 Nm.
Previously, the car design was registered with the Directorate General of Intellectual Property (DJKI) of the Indonesian Ministry of Law and Human Rights. At first glance, this car is similar to the new generation HR-V which took the first floor in Japan and Singapore.
In the Official Industrial Design Gazette No.17/DI/2021 published in June 2021, it is stated that Honda Motor Co Ltd has registered its work since October 30, 2020. Meanwhile, the designer is Daisuke Akojima, who is known as the exterior designer of the New HR-V.
