The Honda HR-V is a mini SUV produced by the Japanese automaker Honda since 1999. The abbreviation HR-V stands officially for "Hybrid Recreation Vehicle" in Europe and "High Rider Vehicle" in Japan.

It was shipped to Europe with either a 1.6-litre SOHC or 1.6-litre SOHC VTEC engine. The first models were also available as a three-door front-wheel drive or as a four-wheel drive version. The three door versions were soon dropped after the longer five door versions were introduced. By using the Honda Real Time 4x4 the 4WD is hydraulically activated when the front wheels do not have enough traction, otherwise the car is front wheel driven. A continuously variable transmission gearbox was available as an optional. Originally developed as a concept car the HR-V was quickly put into production. Floor pan is from the Honda Logo with the 4WD system coming from the Honda CR-Valthough it used beefed up drive shafts rather than the original CRV ones. Different versions were also produced for the Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Rim markets as well as for its home market of Japan. The model was revised in 2001 with some minor styling changes and a new interior. Later production consisted purely of the 5 door VTEC engined version. Strangely for a modern car it is only set up to seat 4 persons at one given time, but could be specified with 3 rear seat belts at original purchase. Production ceased in 2005.
