It's no secret that the Honda HR-V will be receiving a total refresh this year. The all-new model will be making its world premiere on 18-February 2021, earlier than the initially-predicted March debut.
Japanese media have begun receiving pamphlets detailing the B-segment SUV.
Though only silhouettes of the car can be seen, initial impressions shows that the refresh stays rather true-to-form to the Honda SUV e:concept.
Among the cues carried over is the dual-tone colour scheme - characterised by an expansive sunroof within the blacked-out roof.
Although powertrain details are still cloudy, sources say that only one variant will be getting a pure-petrol 1.5-litre engine - variants above the base grade are all said to receive the trick i-MMD petrol-electric hybrid powertrain.
A very groovy teaser video is also out.
The next-gen, all-new HR-V is expected to go on sale in Japan beginning April 2021, and the debut can be watched through the embedded video below.

Closer to home, the current-gen HR-V recently received a host of updates, encapsulating a visual update (with LED headlights) and a new colour for the Hybrid variant, as well as a new touchscreen infotainment system (with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support) for all variants.
