One of the most biggers SUVs on the market CR-V could be soon dethroned. The facelifted 2021 Honda UR-V crossover SUV is coming and from the latest information, it could be more significant than the CR-V. The current Honda crossover UR-V officially started on the Chinese market in the first quarter of 2017, while its restyled version will arrive later this year.
From the first photos, the new SUV looks refreshed and more sporty. The changes compared to the previous variant includes modified grille, redesigned bumpers, LED taillights, new alloy wheels, and a couple of added colors.
2021 Honda UR-V Is Looking More Sporty
The facelifted variant 2021 Honda UR-V looks refreshed and improved. First impressions are positive and we can say that Honda did a great job adding new design language. Besides, this SUV is looking compact and the manufacturer boosted its look compared to the previous variant.
Front of this SUV dominates across the line with a new modified grille and redesigned bumpers. Like on the famous CR-V model, we can see that the same shape of headlights is present. However, looking at this SUV behind, we noticed more upgrades. The rear is stylish and now featuring adjusted LED taillights. New UR-V also hosts elegant alloy wheels that give a sportier appearance.
The upcoming 2021 Honda UR-V will be improved inside. Like before, this model features the same layout. Comfort is one of the best and Honda added more standard equipment.
As we mentioned, this model from the latest information will sit on the extended CR-V platform. That means more room for all passengers. According to latest leaked news, the new 2021 Honda UR-V standard equipment includes leather seats, three-zone automatic air conditioning, a head-up display, panoramic roof, rear camera, as well as blind-spot system.
2021 Honda UR-V Powertrain Options
The all-new 2021 Honda UR-V is the SUV that will be powered by two engine options. According to the manufacturer, the base model will use a 1.5-liter turbo engine that will be capable of delivering 193 horses. From what we heard, this UR-V base model will come exclusively with CVT transmission. On the other hand, if you need more potent powertrain, than an optional is a real choice.
This powertrain consists of a powerful 2.0-liter K20C3 turbo that provides a fantastic output of 272 horses. Unlike the first engine, this one will be connected to a 9-speed automatic transmission. Both models come with front-wheel drive as standard, while you can also get an optionally all-wheel drive.
Release Date and Price
The new 2021 Honda UR-V has been officially revealed in China. As we mentioned, this SUV is a bigger version of the famous CR-V model. It looks attractive and it wears the latest Honda design language. Besides great exterior styling, this model also offers a spacious and techy cabin.
There is no word if the Honda UR-V will reach India soil, and we think its highly unlikely. The all-new SUV will be available to purchase in China in the coming months. However, we can expect its price to be revealed soon after its release.
