New 2018 Honda HR-V – Having previously featured a spyhot sighting of the latest HR-V facelift in Malaysia, now circulating on the internet a rendering image created by Indonesia Automotive Design, new 2018 Honda HR-V facelift that gets design changes on the front similar to the All-New Civic Turbo.
Based on the two photos, Indonesia Automotive Design went straight to the drawing board to give us a glimpse of how the updated HR-V could look like, and it sure does look good! The biggest change here is the design of the headlamps, now featuring the familiar LED reflectors first seen on the top-spec Civic, as well as the facelifted Accord and City.
Also inspired by the Civic is the new chrome strip spanning the width of the bonnet, adding more emphasis to the slimmer headlamps. The same goes for the front grille – it’s slimmer too, although the whole piece is made of a single material, unlike the chrome-on-plastic version we have today. Seen below it are six horizontal slats, stacked in cascading effect.
Inspired by the Civic, it is the new crome strip that covers the width of the hood, adding more emphasis on the thinner main lights. The same applies to the front grill: it is even thinner, although the whole piece is made of one material, unlike the chromed version on plastic that applied in current model of Honda HR-V.
