Honda Australia has confirmed the new ZR-V SUV will make its way into the Australian market in mid-2023. It will sit between the smaller HR-V and larger CR-V, and will be available in four variants; the VTi X, VTi L, VTi LX and e:HEV LX.
The Honda ZR-V offers an optimal balance of fuel efficiency and dynamic performance, from the city to highways and winding roads. Petrol variants will be powered by a 1.5-litre VTEC turbocharged engine with a CVT transmission, and drive mode select.
The e:HEV LX combines a 2.0-litre direct injection petrol engine with a 2-motor hybrid system to deliver an impressive driving experience.
Sitting lower than most SUVs for a sedan-like driving position, the ZR-V still offers good visibility, and a variety of storage spaces, with the floor of the boot featuring a flat design. All variants have a high level of standard equipment.
The VTi X is fitted with 17-inch alloy wheels, while all other variants score the 18-inch variety. The Honda SENSING safety suite includes collision mitigation braking, adaptive cruise control and traffic sign recognition across the range.
A 9.0-inch infotainment system features Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay, and there’s also LED headlights with adaptive driving beam, front and rear parking sensors and a 5-year complimentary subscription to Honda Connect Telematic services.
The 2023 Honda ZR-V will begin to arrive in the Australian market in mid-2023, with full specifications and pricing to be announced in the coming months.
