2022 Honda HR-V: how about one more blurry photo?


 From that front angle, the total departure from the current design language is quite obvious. Almost jarring...

I guess it is a similar move to what Toyota did with the RAV-4 a couple of years ago. Turning a very car-like design into a much more trucky looking one. Which was actually a good move from them. Since they sold more RAV-4s than ever last year (over 448 000)

It seems logical Honda thinks they could boost their HR-V sales ( 99 104 last year) by doing the same thing. I still like the current version. And I think there is a market for more car-like crossovers. But that's just me...

I also think Ford had the best idea. By offering both styles.

The Seltos, CX-30 and all new VW Thaos will have a hard battle to fight.

Looks very Mazda-ish in that photo.

...Speaking of Ford, WHERE is the new Ecosport? And can we have the Puma too?

@ Dough. I am not sure if we will ever get the Puma or a new Ecosport.
Ford announced they will build another model based on the Mach E's architecture in Mexico, so who knows if this is the rumored 'smaller Mach-E derivative Ford spoke about last year. If so that would be a smart replacement for the numb skull Ecosport.

I so wish they would design an full electric version with greater power, This would be perfect in my opinion to revitalise this awesome vehicle design.

To me it looks like a Volvo in this pic. Looking forward to the reveal, do we have a firm (or approximate) day yet?
