The latest news reveals that the all-new 2021 Honda ZR-V SUV is coming and we can expect its debut in the first quarter of next year. Interestingly, if you look at the name Honda ZR-V, you will notice that the multiply crossovers in Honda family ends with R-V. For example, models like BR-V, CR-V, HR-V, WR-V, UR-V, XR-V, and then now ZR-V.
From the latest news that we heard, the upcoming ZR-V might replace the BR-V model and it will be made exclusively for Asian countries. Right now, we have only a few renderings of this premium mid-size crossover and it looks compact and attractive.

The new renderings also reveal that ZR-V is wearing blue paint that is complemented by the contrasting orange painted roofline. On top of that, side profile features stylish multi-spoke alloy 20-inch wheels and black wheel arches. At the rear end, the ZR-V host great designed boomerang-styled LED taillights, integrated rear spoiler, and mighty dual exhaust system.
There are still some missing details about 2021 Honda ZR-V. The manufacturer didn’t release any information regarding the interior. From what we heard, the cabin should be almost identical to the Passport model. So, we can expect a very modern and premium cabin. The layout inside will include two rows of seats and enough room for five occupants.
Besides, we assuming that the upcoming SUV will borrow plenty of cues from the Passport model. The cabin of this model is well-designed with a right balance of touch-screen and physical buttons. The base ZR-V will most likely come with a 5-inch display and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. However, more upscale materials can be expected on the upper trims.
2021 Honda ZR-V Powertrain Details
There are no much details about the engine under the 2021 Honda ZR-V. From some speculations, new model might use the same powertrain as Honda Pilot. So, if this happens, expect two engine options. The first powertrain that powers Pilot is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.
This engine comes with a new six-speed automatic transmission. However, the next powertrain is the same with some mechanical differences. It comes with 9-speed automatic paddle shifters and quirky push-button controls.
