Based on the grand concept of “Unleash your potential,” the all-new ZR-V was developed to uplift the spirit of customers, like a favorite “special day” piece of clothing, and bring out their individuality. Key features include beautiful and sophisticated design, developed under the key words “glamorous & elegant,” and dynamic performance, achieved with a goal to realize driving at the will of the driver. According to Honda, these attributes will enable the driver to enjoy the vehicle with more confidence and in a relaxing manner - a value new to SUV models.
The all-new ZR-V adopts smart and elegant design made for urban environments. The exterior design features flowing proportions characterized by large, smooth surfaces that flow from front to rear. The front fascia features a vertical grille, designed in concert with surrounding areas, and sharp-looking, wide-set headlights that flow horizontally. The rear of the body is emphasizes the vehicle’s wide tread by adding volume around the bottom of the body, with a smooth, upswept look.
The interior design sees a spacious cabin by adopting an instrument panel that stretches out across the dash and features a functional and precise finish on all parts, creating a high-quality interior space that is one class above the competition.
A high-deck center console separates the front seats to create personal space for the driver and front passenger.
The hybrid model of the all-new ZR-V will be the first Honda SUV to be equipped with the Sports e:HEV that combines a 2.0-liter direct injection engine that debuted on the Civic e:HEV and the advanced 2-motor hybrid system (e-CVT). The all-new ZR-V e:HEV will offer a high-quality, exhilarating and one-class-above driving experience in various driving situations including driving on city and suburban roads, highways and winding roads.
The all-new ZR-V also will be available as a gasoline-powered model equipped with a 1.5-liter turbo engine with CVT, which offers highly-responsive and sporty driving.
Both hybrid and gasoline models offer a real-time AWD variation, which enables customers to drive on snowy roads with greater peace of mind by realizing outstanding performance in making turns and climbing up snowy roads.
Starting on Saturday, August 13, 2022 (Japan time), Honda will hold pre-launch showcasing of the production models of all-new ZR-V at various locations in Japan.
