The Honda HR-V facelift will find its way into the region real soon, after a teaser picture was posted on Honda Thailand’s official Facebook page. There’s nothing but a frontal silhouette and a caption that translates to “there are some things that are calling you,” and no, there’s no launch date either.

It cannot be denied – the car in question is clearly the refreshed HR-V. The popular B-segment crossover made its debut earlier this year in Japan, wearing a new face that features a thicker chrome bar, redesigned LED headlights, as well as a new mesh for the upper grille. Even the fog lamps shown here are of the top-spec LED type.

Honda LaneWatch will be featured on the model for the first time, as evidenced by the slight camera protrusion under the left side mirror. Whether or not the HR-V comes packaged with Honda Sensing – standard across all models sold in Japan – remains to be seen.

Besides that, the new HR-V will get an updated cabin. Honda has reshaped the front seats and changed its stitching pattern to improve “holdability and texture,” and JDM versions get a unique two-tone cabin (Jazz Brown) for a more premium feel. Other upgrades include improved NVH and better cabin insulation thanks to additional use of vibration-absorbing materials. Elsewhere, things remain the same as before.

Back home, the HR-V originally made its debut in 2015. The facelifted version was spotted making rounds in Petaling Jaya in December 2017, and once more on the Federal Highway earlier in April. After launching the Odyssey in February, Honda Malaysia announced that it will be introducing another model later in the year, and there’s a good chance it will be the HR-V facelift.
