Honda ZR-V: New hybrid SUV that combines style and performance

If you are looking for a new SUV that offers a sleek design, a spacious cabin and a comfortable ride, then check out the contract hire Honda ZR-V e:HEV.

This is Honda’s latest electrified SUV, which was unveiled in Europe in May, is now available to order.

The ZR-V is powered by Honda’s innovative e:HEV full hybrid system, which has been enhanced to deliver more power and responsiveness.

The system consists of two electric motors and a petrol engine, which work together to provide optimal efficiency and performance.

ZR-V can switch seamlessly between three driving modes

The ZR-V can switch seamlessly between three driving modes: EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive, depending on the driving conditions and the driver’s preferences.

It comes in four trim levels: Elegance, Advance, Executive and Sport Line.

The basic equipment list includes front and rear parking sensors, 18-inch alloy wheels, 11 airbags, an eight-speaker audio system and a rear-view camera.

The models also have navigation and smartphone integration, a nine-inch touchscreen display with Honda Connect, plus there’s a seven-inch digital instrument display.

Higher trims offer additional features such as leather seats, heated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, a wireless phone charger and a premium sound system.

Honda ZR-V is aimed squarely at the young and style-conscious market

The ZR-V is being aimed squarely at the young and style-conscious market and is positioned between the popular HR-V and CR-V models.

There’s no doubt that the model offers a compelling combination of power, style and driving pleasure, making it the perfect choice for those wanting a crossover that is easy to live with.

Underneath the sleek and eye-catching exterior lies Honda’s cutting-edge hybrid tech – something that the critically acclaimed Civic e:HEV also has.

Renowned for its dynamic attributes, the Civic is a fun, well-built hybrid that has inspired the designers of the ZR-V.

Excellent acceleration and a responsive driving experience

The ZR-V car lease model benefits from the optimised version of the e:HEV’s efficient 2.0-litre engine which works in harmony with two electric motors to deliver excellent acceleration and a responsive driving experience.

Drawing inspiration from the design concepts found in the impressive CR-V and Civic platforms, the ZR-V’s bespoke, lightweight and rigid chassis has been engineered to deliver driving characteristics and agility that we normally associate with hatchbacks.

And, thanks to a refined feedback control logic and the integration of low-friction components, the ZR-V offers good feedback for the steering.

The multi-link rear suspension and optimised bushes ensure a comfortable and engaging drive, instilling confidence and elevating comfort for drivers and passengers alike.

Be prepared to see lots of the contract hire Honda ZR-V’s later this year – it’s a great production and worth road testing.
