In Japan the Honda HR-V is sold as the Honda Vezel and although Honda hasn’t revealed the updates to the 2019 HR-V, the updates to the Vezel may provide a clue. A few days ago Honda took the wraps off the updated Vezel in Japan, which gets a mild facelift.
At the front the updated Vezel gets a new front bumper and grille as well as restyled LED headlights. The new headlights are similar in design to the headlights on the new Accord and Civic, while the black U-shaped bar on the current grille has been replaced by a new chrome design.
The Vezel also gets new wheels and the addition of two new colors: Aurora Amethyst Metallic Silver Mist Green Metallic. We’ll have to wait and see if the new colors are offered on the 2019 Honda HR-V.
The Vezel also now comes standard with the Honda Sensing safety suite, which includes technology, like auto braking, lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control.
The 2019 Honda HR-V will likely get most, if not all of the updates when it arrives later this year.
