This award-winning SUV was first unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in October 2014 and went on sale last summer - since then, the Honda HR-V has most certainly made its mark.
'New Car of the Year' is a prestigious award, with the winner selected by AM dealership readers, who made their choice by voting online throughout the month of January. Winning vehicles of this award require exceptional quality, impressive driving performance and a dashing design that appeals to a wide audience.
The popular new SUV from Honda rose above the rest to become triumphant, and the HR-V now offers Honda award-winning representation in Europe's fast-growing small SUV segment.
The HR-V offers a spacious, comfortable interior and has distinctive exterior aesthetics echoing that of a coupe. Meticulously designed for everyday life, experience a responsive ride with top-performance fuel economy, making for an exhilarating yet efficient drive.
Stephen Briers, Editor in Chief at AM magazine, commented on the award: 'It was an important launch for the brand in 2015 and took Honda back into a rapidly growing market segment. Now AM readers have voted the HR-V a winner, thanks to its coupe-like looks, impressive practicality, efficient engines and keen pricing. Although supply is constrained, this car will do wonders for its dealers and it attracting new customers out of other brands.'
Philip Crossman, Managing Director of Honda UK, also commented, saying: 'This is a fantastic accolade for the new HR-V to pick up and just shows how popular the car is proving with both dealers and customers alike. Sixteen years after the original HR-V launched and our return to the crossover segment, which we pioneered with the first generation HR-V, has been massively successful with overwhelming demand across our retail network.'
