Honda Cars PH Says Stocks Of HR-V Now Stable


During the launch of the current-generation HR-V, Honda Cars Philippines encountered supply problems brought on the chip shortage and logistics challenges. Finally, there’s good news.

More than year after its launch in April 2022 (and even after the launch of the HR-V RS in September 2022), Honda days stocks are now starting to normalize. Despite the continued strong interest for the compact crossover, Honda says they’ve been able to secure stable stocks to finally meet the Filipino market demand.

Honda Cars attributes the HR-V’s sporty design, fun-to-drive performance, versatility, and advanced technology and safety to be the reasons behind its success in the Philippines.

The HR-V reflects the latest design language of Honda. Standard across all variants are full LED headlights with Daytime Running Lights (DRL) and turn signals, and LED fog lights. An integrated front grille commands presence with a pronounced façade, that matches with the Amp Up design logo found on the RS Turbo and V Turbo variants.

Clean body lines and 17-inch wheels (18 inches for the RS Turbo) provide a strong and purposeful design, complemented by 196 mm of ground clearance (for V Turbo and S CVT). The look is completed at the rear end with a stylish tailgate and full LED taillights across all variants.

The Honda HR-V interior is inspired by a human-centric design language that incorporates sensible ergonomics and is appointed with quality materials. Convenience features include an 8-inch touchscreen display audio with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, remote engine start, and aircon vents with USB ports for the rear seats.

Also standard are the ULT Seats, giving the owner more flexibility in cargo space. There are three adjustable modes: Utility Mode where the two rear seats can be folded to increase cargo space; Long Mode where the front passenger seat can also be folded down along with the rear seats for even longer items; and Tall Mode – A segment exclusive that allows seat cushions to be flipped up for more vertical space for tall items.

Powering this compact crossover are two engine options: for the S variant, a 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC 4-cylinder engine with 121 horsepower and 145 Nm, and for the V and RS, a 1.5-liter DOHC VTEC Turbo 4-cylinder with 177 horsepower and 240 Nm. Both engines are mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT).

Regardless of variants, the HR-V comes with Honda Sensing as standard. This gives owners access to the following safety features: Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), Road Departure Mitigation System with Lane Departure Warning (RDM with LDW), Auto High-Beam (AHB), and Lead Car Departure Notification System (LCDN).

For 2024, pricing for the HR-V remain unchanged:

  1. Many buyers moved on and bought a Coolray,Emzoom,GS4,Emkoo,T Cross and CS55 Plus
    HRV is still a much better buy than the DNGA Yaris Cross and Creta GLS

    2. On their website Toyota listed the Yaris Cross as part of the TNGA platform alongside the Corolla and the CH/R, etc...

      Delete
    3. Yaris Cross sold by TMPC is made in Indonesia and it uses DNGA platform.
      DNGA is equivalent of those car platforms used in Indian market only by Suzuki,Renault,Nissan and Citroen.
      Honda HRV uses the same platform used by the Honda Fit/Jazz

    1. Buksan mo ang hood ng Yaris Cross, kita mo agad na DNGA lang siya. Kung TNGA yan, like sa ibang international markets, malamang maging kasing presyo lang niya ang HRV.

    2. Whats wrong with DNGA??? Its the most approriate for the price range, its japanese craftmanship/tech thru n thru, new platform nga yan e, GLOBAL, LATEST.

      Delete
    3. If DNGA is really a global platform why don't they sell DNGA vehicles in OECD countries, ex-Japan, then? Why is there a TNGA Yaris Cross for all other markets outside of ASEAN then? Why is the DNGA Yaris Cross available only in ASEAN?

      Delete
    4. Raize is sold in Japan. Uses the same DNGA platform.

      Delete
    5. I said ex-Japan, excluding Japan. Japan has a unique car culture due to its Kei Car regulations. Outside Japan, ASEAN is the only place where DNGA cars are sold. Toyota does this because it can get away with selling inferior DNGA cars here. It's cheaper to manufacture, hence cheaper selling prices, so they get patronized here regardless of their platform. As you said, it comes down to economies of scale. That's all there is to it. It doesn't mean DNGA is a global platform. More accurately put, it's an oriental platform. TNGA is Toyota's true global platform, they even put their name on said platform to highlight the fact.

    6. If you dont want DNGA and you can afford just buy a lexus. For most not so rich pnoy car buyers toyota DNGA is more than enough assurance of toyota reliability and durability over unproven china cars.

      Delete
    7. Don't limit yourself in buying a Toyota vehicle only in your whole lifetime
      There are lots of choices in the market.
      Hindi na tayo nasa 1986-1988 na Mitsubishi at Nissan lang ang available na brand new vehicles sa Philippine market.

    8. Most pnoy car buyers 1 lang kaya bilihin(utang pa) so don nlang cila sa proven brand, yong medyo rich they can afford to be more adventurous.

  4. As to why we have the DNGA Yaris Cross instead of the TNGA Yaris Cross, it's likely down to manufacturing cost and logistics. The TNGA Yaris Cross has no platform sibling in the region so sourcing it from Japan will be cost prohibitive.

    1. Only ignorant people criticize the DNGA platform.

    2. Toyota wholly owned daihatsu so DNGA is toyota. Pumasa nga sa very strict JDM. Yaris cross has full features with affordable price, thanks to china cars - toyota has up its game.

      Delete
    3. Only people who want better cars criticize the DNGA platform.

      Delete
    4. How exactly is the DNGA platform bad again?

      Delete
    5. DNGA vehicles known to have weak structural rigidity that's why they can't be sold in European,American,Australian and Chinese markets.Interior plastics are the lowest kind too as if its a Korean vehicle from 2000's.
      Its the equivalent of Suzuki HEARTECT platform meant for Indian markets.

      Delete
  5. China fanboys will always criticize. Daihatsu is a way better brand than Chinese unknowns. Let the market decide. China no waiting always available parts lang any waiting. Japs no units but buyers willing to wait than buy low quality Volvo inspired lotus tuned crap.

    1. Daihatsu makes unsafe cars now..They're like Maruti Suzuki now which mainly cares about selling substandard unsafe vehicles
      Daihatsu and Suzuki both left China as they won't produce modern and safer vehicles for Chinese car buyers.

      Delete
    2. Wait...why are we talking about Chinese car buyers now? This is CarGuide.PH not CarGuide.CN.

      Delete
    3. Because for some reason people here engage in tribalism with cars. Who really gives a crap what you drive? Some no-life losers, that's who.

    4. Daihatsu making unsafe cars??? May article dyan sa taas about 5 star crash test result ng DNGA vios basahin mo mabuti.

      Delete
    5. Ikaw Ang magbasa ng maayos, basahin mong maigi ang kino-quote mong article. Mahirap kasi sa karamihan headline lang ang binabasa eh.

      Delete
    6. Read and understand, its very clear on the article, even on the last part it clearly said 5 STAR

      Delete
    7. READ AND UNDERSTAND! Na miss mo ba yung part tungkol sa rigging scandal? Na miss mo ba ang part tungkol sa pag modify sa sasakyan para lang makapasa sa isang test? Na miss mo ba ang final score? Barely lang naka 5 star ang sasakyan, pasang-awang 5 star, kumbaga. Minodify na nga eh. Paano pala yung mga meron na? Magre-recall ba para i-modify din ang mga unit nila? Headline lang kasi ang binibigyan pansin eh, kaya bagsak ang Pilipinas sa reading comprehension at critical analysis eh.

    8. Na correct na nga, yan na ang coorected products and yan na latest result 5 STAR. Barely or not very clear sa article na 5 STAR. Wew it seems you cant accept a very clear fact.

    1. Thailand. So far no word if we're getting that new color. Right now, no changes to the available colorways.

  7. Better buy a Honda HRV which is a SUV for global markets over DNGA Yaris Cross only meant for lowly Asian markets.

    1. Worth noting that if you will, get the variant with the 5-star ASEAN NCAP rating, you need to spring for the HR-V RS.

      That's actually our favorite HR-V variant too.

    1. High sales results doesn't automatically make the vehicle better overall.
      Glad that car buyers now got lots of choices in the market thanks to the arrival of Chinese and Korean vehicles.

    2. Kaya nga marami bumibili kasi proven na reliable and durable thru the decades

      Delete
    3. Ang 'reliable and durable thru the decades' ay yung mga Corolla, etc. Yung mga lumang nameplates, kumbaga. DNGA vehicles are relatively new, compared to the OG models. Toyota bastardized their own brand by marketing DNGA vehicles as Toyotas, instead of properly marketing them for what they truly are, Daihatsus.

      Delete
    4. Avanza is a Daihatsu I think. Its more than a decade old already

      Delete
    5. Sales result, yes Toyotas win and ride on their so-called reliable brand. But wait til all those cheap tin Daihatsus rust and have kalampags in a few years time. Heck even brand new ones already have interior rattles. Not to mention hard plastics galore. Disgusting is an understatement for these DNGA disasters mudding Toyota's name.

      Delete
    6. DNGA has toyota reliability and durability, just look at the taxi avanza umulan umaraw takbo parin. Just look at the roads, many many avanza, wigo, vios best proof of reliability and durability

      Delete
    7. What are you even going on about? The 1st 2 generations of the Avanza used a Toyota platform, DNGA only started being used in the current gen. Avanza. Same with the Vios, it only started using DNGA this current gen., it used actual Toyota platforms before. Only the Wigo started on a pure Daihatsu platform, the predecessor of DNGA.

      Delete
    8. Haven't you see current gen taxi avanza on the road? Its everywhere. You see previous gen avanza, vios, wigo still up and running well thats the real litmus test of reliability and durability. And now with the DNGA it would go even better.

    9. Your statements are detached from the facts though. I'm not even trying to engage in an argument with you, I just stated the facts. I'm gonna end it here before this drags on like your word war with the other anon yesterday.

  9. Honda Elevate would be a great companion and alternative to the Honda HRV.
    Just only sell the HRV in Turbo variants while the Elevate covers the HRV S will left.
    EV version of the HRV is also nice

    1. e:Ny1? I'd rather Honda bring in more e:HEV's first. They going to test the waters again with the CR-V Hybrid, let's see how it goes :D. If it goes well I hope they bring in the City e:HEV too

      Delete
    2. HCPI isn't interested of selling the City e:HEV here due to its steep pricing
      Honda City Hybrid RS at 1.3 Million Pesos is gonna be a hard sell
      Honda Civic e:HEV is likely coming to the Philippine market but it'll likely be priced at 2 Million Pesos.
      HCPI was one of the early Japanese car manufacturers to bring in affordable Hybrid vehicle to the Philippine market thanks to the Honda CRZ from 12 years ago.

  10. The article is about honda HRV but people always dragging yaris cross into the topic. This is actually happen too in indo articles xD Actually its a tit for tat between honda and toyota well at least in indonesia. When toyota raize literally the sole player in small suv segment with monthly sales of 1000-2000 units per month beating daihatsu rocky, nissan magnite etc then there it is honda with its WRV. Too, when Honda HRV is the dominant in crossover segment with 2000-ish monthly sales, a market with the likes of hyundai creta, suzuki grand vitara etc which hardly reach 1000 units mark per month then toyota came with yaris cross and it seems paid off. Month of july sales ; yaris cross 1849 units while honda HRV 1509 units. The rivalry which repeat the yaris hatchback vs jazz when both were popular xD this crossover segment is hotly contested with the upcoming mitsubishi xforce. More options is good for the buyer, though.

    1. Toyota in Indonesia is mostly dominant on MPV segment but they can't beat the Honda Brio and City Hatchback in Indonesia
      Sales of HRV slid down due to the SUV being older already
