Western Honda are delighted to announce the arrival of the new ZR-V at our dealerships, now available to test drive at your closest Western Honda branch.
The all-new Honda ZR-V cuts a unique silhouette in the C-SUV segment through a compelling combination of sophisticated styling, a high-quality interior, and an exciting yet comfortable drive. The all-new ZR-V has been engineered to inspire confidence, encourage freedom and appeal to a wide range of European customers.
Bridging the gap between the new HR-V and the new CR-V, the ZR-V is the latest Honda SUV to come with the company’s highly acclaimed e:HEV hybrid powertrain as standard. Revised for its application to this model, it continues to offer a unique blend of exceptional performance and efficiency across all road types, from the highway to country lanes. As such, the clean yet powerful 2.0-litre, four-cylinder direct injection engine works in conjunction with two motors to provide exhilarating performance usually associated with sports hatchbacks.
The elegant exterior design of the ZR-V is defined by the timeless mixture of smooth uninterrupted surfaces that flow from front to rear, with precise panel gaps and tightly defined detailing features, such as the sharply creased belt line. Initiated at the front through the slimline headlights, with clearly defined light signatures, and a large, stylised grille, the noiseless appearance continues down the clean flanks and culminates with a bold rear bumper and taillights that are neatly integrated with the tailgate.
The ZR-V’s dimensions place it at the centre of Honda’s European SUV range, and give it exceptional spaciousness, practicality, and comfort within a compact package. During the design process, Honda engineers focused on delivering a stylish, elegant cabin that subtly integrates and maximises useful functionality, ensuring the cabin is both aesthetically and functionally beautiful. This allows for ease of use in everyday life thanks to a range of stowage points and useful functions such as multiple USB charging slots.
This is complemented by high-quality materials, detailed finishing, and subtle lighting to create a premium ambience. The low set dashboard and raised central console, alongside plush knee pads and arm rests, have the effect of cosseting occupants, while sophisticated HMI technology keeps driver and passengers connected to the outside world, in addition to the functionality of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The ZR-V is the latest Honda vehicle to feature the company’s advanced suite of Honda SENSING technologies as standard. Combined with a comprehensive airbag system and impressive all-round collision performance, the ZR-V achieves high levels of both active and passive safety.
“The all-new ZR-V was developed to create an SUV that is unlike others, delivering segment-leading levels of practicality, usability and comfort as well as a bold and powerful presence and beautifully detailed interior. More than that, we wanted to create an exciting SUV that delivers a highly responsive and engaging driving experience,” says Yutaka Kato, ZR-V Large Project Leader. “We believe that ZR-V offers the perfect package to meet the unique demands of customers across Europe, who demand exceptional performance and dynamics, everyday versatility, a beautiful, sleek design and a highly efficient hybrid powertrain for which Honda is renowned.”
