The Honda HR-V debuted at the New York Auto Show in 2014 and is finally set to hit dealers in the coming months. The 2016 HR-V is scheduled to go on sale May 15, and Honda is confident it will quickly become the segment’s front runner. According to Automotive News, it will enter the subcompact crossover segment, which is expected to double in sales this year. Honda expects to sell around 70,000 units a year with 50% of those buyers being new to the brand. Built in a new plant in Celaya, Mexico, the HR-V experienced some minor production setbacks as the new plant got up and running, thus accounting for its delay. Starting at $19,995, Honda believes the HR-V will be a something-for-everyone vehicle thanks to large cargo volume, increased visibility, and creative interior styling.
