'In the ultra-competitive small SUV segment, the HR-V +LUXE outclasses its main rivals with a list of affordable luxury features they simply cannot match,' – Stephen Collins, director of Honda Australia.

Honda Australia has announced the special-edition HR-V +Luxe, which brings a handful of luxury features to its popular small crossover.

Based on the VTi-S trim, the +Luxe gains black leather seat trim, heated front seats, metallic/pearlescent paint, and '+Luxe' badging over its standard counterpart, with the majority of these items usually reserved for the high-spec RS and VTi-LX grades.

"The HR-V VTi-S is now available with more luxury equipment than ever before courtesy of this exclusive +LUXE package, all the while maintaining the competitive pricing, impressive interior space and unrivalled versatility that are hallmarks of the HR-V range," said Stephen Collins, director for Honda Australia.

Equipment carried over from the VTi-S include satellite navigation, keyless entry with push-button start, automatic LED headlights, a rear-view camera, rear parking sensors, and Honda's LaneWatch blind-spot camera system.

Four colours will be available for the HR-V +Luxe – Brilliant Sporty Blue metallic, Lunar Silver metallic, Modern Steel metallic, and White Orchid pearlescent.

The special-edition variant is arriving in dealerships this month priced from $29,990 before on-road costs.
