A compact crossover produced by Honda.


The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Honda HR-V page on 18 December 2020, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Honda HR-V, known as the Honda Vezel (Japanese: ホンダ・ヴェゼル, Honda Vezeru) in Japan and China, is a subcompact crossover SUV (B-segment) manufactured and marketed by Honda over two generations.

The first generation HR-V was based on the Honda Logo. It was marketed from 1999 to 2006 in Europe, Japan and select Asia-Pacific markets – and featured three doors (1999–2003) or five doors (1999–2006). The two configurations were internally designated GH2 and GH4 respectively.

After a hiatus between 2006 and 2013, Honda reintroduced the nameplate for the second generation HR-V, based on the third-generation Honda Fit. Production began in late 2013 for the Japanese domestic market (as the Vezel) and in 2015 in North America, Australia, Brazil and select Asian markets as the HR-V.

At its introduction, Honda claimed the nameplate HR-V stood for Hi-rider Revolutionary Vehicle.
