2019 Honda HR-V VTi-S +LUXE special edition revealed

2019 Honda HR-V

The +LUXE edition adds a touch of affordable luxury to Honda’s small-SUV range

Honda has added some luxury to its mid-spec HR-V variant, for those seeking a champagne crossover on a craft-beer budget.

The $29,990 price tag of Honda's five-seat, five-door small SUV puts it up against rivals including the $29,790 Mazda CX-3 S-Touring auto, and $29,500 Hyundai Kona Elite,.

The HR-V VTi-S +LUXE special edition adds leather-appointed seat trim and heated front seats to the regular VTI-S variant. You'd have to plump for the range-topping VTi-LX to get these seats otherwise.

It also comes standard with $600 premium paint in a choice of colours that includes Brilliant Sporty Blue metallic (above), Lunar Silver metallic, Modern Steel metallic and White Orchid pearlescent.

The extras attract a $2000 premium over the HR-V VTi-S, building on its standard features list that includes built-in satellite navigation, smart keyless entry and push-button start.

It also gets LED headlights, multi-angle reversing camera, rear parking sensors, blind spot monitor and city-speed autonomous emergency braking.

Like the rest of the HR-V range, the VTi-S +LUXE is powered by a 1.8-litre four-cylinder petrol engine backed by a CVT auto and front-wheel-drive. There is no manual Honda HR-V available in this spec.

The special-edition HR-V VTi-S +LUXE is now available in Honda showrooms.
