Honda revealed the first image of the European specification HR-V concept, which is due to premiere in October at the Paris Motor Show. A version of the prototype, which is something of a cross between a coupe and an SUV, is slated to enter production in 2015.
The Japanese manufacturer did not release details on the technical specifications of the near-production crossover prototype, however.
Expected to be more affordable than the CR-V -- and more adaptable thanks to its so-called "Magic Seats" -- the new Honda HR-V is expected to arrive at dealerships in 2015. The model will be the European variant of the Vezel, the subcompact SUV launched in Japan in late 2013, which is available as a hybrid or a conventional fuel car.
