All-New Honda HR-V Scoops Up Design Award

The all-new Honda HR-V has been cited for its design in the Product Category at the Red Dot Design Award. Founded in 1955, it has become one of the most respected design awards worldwide. The award is administered by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Essen, Germany.

For the Product Design awards, 51 categories of industrial products are judged on nine criteria including the degree of innovation, functionality, durability, and ergonomics.

This year, the HR-V won along with the NT1100 sport-tourer motorcycle, ADV350 mid-size scooter, and EU32i portable generator. This marks the first time for Honda to win accolades at the Red Dot Awards in all three of its key business areas—motorcycle, automobile, and power products.

The all-new HR-V was recognized for its “experienced-based value for customers who enjoy active lifestyles and are open to new things.”

The compact crossover continues to adopt a center-tank layout based on Honda’s Man-Maximum, Machine-Minimum concept. This has resulted in a cabin bigger than the average cabin space of those in its class. The Red Dot Design Awards also noted the HR-V’s occupant comfort and versatile seat arrangements as well.

Exterior-wise, the HR-V highlights its long cabin by a horizontally-oriented styling with lines on the sides of the body running from the front to the back. It also continues with its coupe-like proportions.

For the Philippine market, the all-new HR-V is powered either by a normally-aspirated 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine or a turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder. It will make its Philippine debut on April 19.
