Honda HR-V Pulled From UK, Other Euro Markets Might Follow


With a new generation Honda HR-V expected to launch later this year, the automaker has pulled the plug on the current iteration in the United Kingdom.

The subcompact SUV is no longer listed on the official website, leaving the Japanese automaker with a five-model lineup comprising of the Jazz, e, CR-V, Civic and NSX, plus their derivatives.

Autocar reports that production of the HR-V for the European market ended altogether at the end of December, as the vehicle did not meet new emissions regulations that came into effect on January 1. However, there are still new units available in dealer stocks.

We reached out to Honda for an official comment and will be updating this story when they reply, but if it checks out, then the small crossover will likely be removed from Honda’s other European websites soon.

For now, though, it can still be found in Germany, priced from €21,990 ($26,789), and in Spain, where it starts at €26,130 ($31,832). The HR-V remains on sale in Italy and France too, with pricing starting at €29,200 ($35,572) and €25,100 ($30,577) respectively.

On our side of the pond, the 2021 HR-V is offered in four trim levels, namely the LX, Sport, EX and EX-L. Pricing varies between $21,220 for the base and $26,020 for the top-of-the-line variant. All models are powered by a 141 HP and 127 lb-ft (172 Nm) of torque 1.8-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder gasoline engine. The unit is mated to a CVT and front-wheel drive, with the all-wheel drive system available as a $1,500 option on all grades.
