The Android-running Honda Connect infotainment system comes standard on the mid- and top-range versions and offers a 7-inch touchscreen display and pre-installed apps while Garmin navigation is available at an additional cost on the mid-range version whereas the flagship model gets it as standard.

Customers will have to select between either a 1.5-liter i-VTEC gasoline engine with 130 PS (96 kW) or a 1.6-liter i-DTEC diesel rated at 120 PS (88 kW). Both of them work with a 6-speed manual transmission, but the gasoline engine can also be optionally paired to a new continuously variable transmission (CVT).

Honda UK says the HR-V will hit dealerships towards the end of August.
