Sport utility vehicles (commonly known as SUVs) are the most popular car type in the world and there are now more sizes and versions than ever. One of the emerging SUV markets is the sub-compact SUV – cars that are significantly smaller than full-size SUVs, but have the shape of the standard SUV. They are cheaper than compact SUVs, while offering similar performance and features. Currently, the two most popular vehicles in the sub-compact SUV market are the Mini Cooper Countryman and Nissan Juke. However, this could change very soon, since the Japanese manufacturer, Honda decided to enter that market with 2016 Honda HR-V.

The 2016 Honda HR-V will be quite similar to another vehicle from the Honda lineup – Honda Fit. The two cars are going to share the platform and a lot of the design of the exterior. However, the HR-V will be a lot higher than Fit, because it has to look more like a SUV than a hatchback. On the front, HR-V is going to have the same “smiling” front design, with sharp headlights and large grille with Honda chrome logo on the top of it.
