Honda’s 2015 HR-V subcompact crossover makes photographic debut in New York

Honda announced the launch of its upcoming HR-V subcompact crossover at this week’s New York Auto Show. While the vehicle was nowhere to be found on the show floor, the brand released a series of images of the HR-V, which is destined for the market later this winter.

The HR-V is based on the 2015 Honda Fit, and shares many of the same unique features that we’ve come to love in the Fit. For example, the HR-V will come standard with the Fit’s Magic Seat configuration, which allows owners to move the seats in multiple configurations, making the most out of the car’s tiny package. That’ll be important, since the HR-V is smaller even than the Honda CR-V midsize crossover.

It’s likely that the same drivetrains from the Fit will be available in the HR-V, too, meaning we’ll see a revvy 1.5-liter four-cylinder, and either a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission. Look forward to more information on the HR-V, but in the meantime, take a look at our gallery, and let us know what you think of the subcompact crossover’s styling in the comments below.

Toyota debuts its eighth hybrid, the 2016 RAV4, in New York
2016 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid 2

Today at the New York International Auto Show, Toyota took another step in its race to become the first automaker with hybrid versions of all of its products as it debuted the 2016 RAV4 Hybrid. This development makes so much sense that is almost surprising that it hasn't happened already.

The new hybrid RAV4 will come as part of a general refresh of Toyota's compact crossover, and it looks to take its place as the top of the Rav4 range. To take on that challenge Toyota says that the hybrid version will boast the most horsepower and the quickest acceleration of any RAV4. Toyota also claims that this won't come at the cost of fuel economy. For now we have to take it at its word, as the Japanese automaker hasn't revealed any mpg figures.

Honda stuns fans with radical Civic concept in NY, confirms Type R for US
Honda Civic Concept

Even with a myriad of supercars and high-profile debuts at its back, Honda’s press conference at the 2015 New York Auto Show may have stolen the show. And no, that’s not an April Fool’s joke.

The brand unveiled a new Civic Concept at the event, one that showcases a new design language for the model. Dressed in Nickelodeon-inspired green paint (which will indeed be a production color), the Concept rides on a lower, wider, but most importantly global platform that will underpin every 10th-generation Civic made. That includes sedan, coupe, five-door hatch, Si, and Type R models.

Like most Scions, the iA emphasizes affordability with a sporty flair. Essentially a Mazda 2 sedan with tweaked bodywork, the vehicle is expected to retail for around $16,000 in well-equipped ‘mono-spec’ form, which features a 7-inch multimedia system and a 'Low-speed Pre-collision' safety system as standard.
