2023 Honda HR-V

2023 Honda HR-V

True to form, Honda has once again affirmed their commitment to safety, reliability, efficiency, and brilliant technology with the completely redesigned 2023 Honda HR-V. Marking the first of a new generation of Honda’s smallest crossover SUV, the 2023 HR-V has been given quite the glow-up this year with new, standard technology, a sleek design, a new trim, and some seriously fun driving potential. This summer, Campbell River Honda is proud to house this latest addition to the Honda lineup.

Exterior Design

The 2023 Honda HR-V rolls onto the showroom floor with a sleek body (and gloss-black lower body), handsomely chiseled front fascia, honeycomb grille, and standard 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. With a higher ground clearance than the 2022 model, this inviting SUV communicates its versatility and increased capability instantly.\


The 2023 HR-V’s new protracted headlamps and taillamps now come standard with LED daytime running lights and brake lights for extended illumination on the road ahead. The available mirror-integrated LED turn indicators will also give you an extra peace of mind when driving through inclement weather.

Rain or Shine

Speaking of inclement weather, this SUV also comes equipped with a rain sensing and front wiper de-icing system. No more straining across the windshield as you scrape off the ice or frost in the wee hours of the morning. Just sit back and watch it all melt away. For those beautiful BC summers, the 2023 Honda HR-V is now available with a one-touch power moonroof for enjoying some fresh air and a warm breeze on-the-go.
