At this year’s Tokyo Auto Salon, Honda unveiled the HR-V Modulo X Concept 2019, which previews a set of accessories and parts that will be available for the compact crossover at the end of January.

The show car is based on the latest HR-V, specifically the Vezel Touring that is available in Japan. Changes include a new bumper at the front with more prominent fog lamp enclosures as well as plenty of black-painted areas, including the chrome bar over the grille.

There’s also a dash of silver at the base of bumper, and this look is replicated at the rear as well. The bumper at the back is new too, and made to look sportier to better complement the dual exhaust outlets and large faux vent. A set of 18-inch Modulo wheels complete the look, wrapped with Michelin Primacy rubbers.

Inside, there are semi-bucket seats that boast Modulo X embroidery, along with dedicated floor mats. Honda says there are revisions to the car’s suspension as well – likely new dampers. Beyond that, the car retains its mechanical bits, including its 1.5 litre VTEC Turbo engine.

With the facelifted HR-V already on sale in Malaysia, will this show car be a good source of inspiration for any modifications?
