Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Comes after the Avancier, CR-V and WR-V.
AutoHome has acquired images of an undisguised mid-size crossover called the Honda UR-V. It appears to be Dongfeng-Honda’s version of the Honda Avancier, and exclusive to the Chinese market. If revealed this year, this is Honda’s fourth crossover presentation in 2016, following the Avancier, new CR-V and the WR-V.
Although the models share the basic design, the Honda UR-V features a slightly distinctive face and rear-end. Up front, it has a bolder Solid Wing face with similar LED headlamps and new bumper with LED foglamps. The profile looks largely identical to the Avancier, save for the small intake and different alloy rims.
The taillamp design is similar to that of the Avancier, although the UR-V has a bolder chrome garnish, wide reflector connecting the two taillamps and re-positioned registration plate. As per Chinese reports, the UR-V measures 4,825 mm long, 1,942 mm wide, 1,670 mm high and has a wheelbase of 2,820 mm.
Under the hood of the Honda UR-V is a 2.0L ‘Sport Turbo’ VTEC engine sourced from the Avancier, which produces 268 hp and 370 Nm of torque. It will be paired with a 9-speed automatic gearbox as well as an AWD system.
