Mysterious SUV spotted, could this be the next-gen Honda HR-V? 01

What could be the all-new 2021 Honda HR-V was spotted testing last week and today, we have more to share.

The upcoming SUV as spotted in Japan last week. Article here.

There's a lot of changes, and they're not subtle. The front is completely redesigned with a larger grille and sharper headlights featuring LED daytime running lights (DRLs).

It looks bigger than your average B-segment SUV, but its sloping roofline reminds one of the HR-V.

The most apparent changes are round the back. There's sharper, slimmer LED rear lamps, and the rear windscreen is swoopier than any models in Honda's current SUV lineup has.

Current HR-V for comparison.

With these new touches - particularly in front - you might assume that it's a Hyundai or even a Mazda.

However, the appearance of what looks like to be the Honda LaneWatch camera (that'll also be in the all-new Honda City, by the way) and pillar-mounted door handles are a clue that this could very well be the next all-new Honda HR-V.

What could it look like?

Meanwhile, the current HR-V is getting on for a bit now and so earlier this year, some artists had a go on guessing what it could look like next year.

Would you like it if the next HR-V looked like this?
