The contemporary shape of the HR-V will certainly turn heads. At the front end the large Honda badge is surrounded by a gloss black grille which is flanked by a striking light cluster on either side. Within the light cluster are day time running lights which make you more visible to other road users, increasing overall safety. From the side the car has a sporty look with the lines of a coupe, with the tapered rear windows and door handles hidden neatly within the c-pillars adding to this. The bold crease flows from the front doors towards the rear resulting in the cars distinctive lines. The rear of the car's focal point comes from the sporty body coloured tailgate spoiler below which you will find a pair of wrap around taillights.
