The Honda HR-V, or Hi-Rider Revolutionary Vehicle, was first released in Asian markets in 1999, but this model was eventually discontinued. However, in 2015, Honda brought back a newly redesigned version of the HR-V that shares the same platform as the Honda Fit. This second-generation HR-V is a five-door, sub-compact crossover designed to cater to those looking for the handling and reliability of a car combined with the safety, performance and interior space found in an SUV. Designed to replace the Honda Element, the latest version of the HR-V has already proved to be quite popular. In fact, yearly sales already more than doubled during its second year of production in 2016, and it is now one of the top-selling models in its class.
