The Honda UR-V is based on the Avancier a spacious family station wagon based on the Accord premium sedans architecture. it was produced between 1999 and 2003 and only sold in Japan. Honda began using the Avancier moniker for its mid-size crossover sold exclusively in the People’s Republic a few years ago. Dongfeng Honda’s version is dubbed the UR-V in keeping with the range of global SUVs and crossovers.
The new Honda UR-V is 40 millimetres longer than the previous model on the outside. the honda badge is housed in a larger u-shaped radiator black grille. the sleeker led headlamps are accompanied by integrated lead daytime running lights. All feature plenty of chrome touches to add to the overall appeal. The upper section of the grille looks like it came from the CR-V turbo while the lower area looks like it came from the HR-V. At the rear end, the Honda logo also divides the taillights in two at the back. The rear bumper has been redesigned in black with silver muffler accents.
Inside, the Honda UR-V retains Honda’s pragmatic design style which does not cater to current popular design elements. the t-shaped centre console has a regular layout. the artificial leather texture is added for practicality it has a nice texture and appeals to older customers more visually. The entire system comes with a built-in 8-inch LCD screen in the central control section as standard. except for the entry-level model which only supports the original Honda factory the visual look and feel it brings to people must be quite satisfactory in this era of popular large screens.
The Honda UR-V’s body size as a large five-seat SUV is relatively large compared to other models in its class. so even with a fastback body design, the space in the back is very spacious. Also, the floor is flat, relying on this good space performance and more stretched riding experience to attract some consumers.
