The 2022 Honda HR-V RS Turbo is equipped with a 1.5-liter VTEC turbo gasoline engine that delivers 175 hp and 240 Nm of torque, the same power output rating as the 11th generation Civic. It also comes with three driving modes: Sport, Normal, and Econ. The HR-V’s engine is connected to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The non-RS HR-V is powered by a 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC engine that produces 119 hp and a maximum torque of 145 Nm.

The all-new HR-V that debuted in Indonesia is a preview of what the Philippine market will be getting come next month. Honda Cars Philippines Inc. (HCPI) already announced that the 2022 HR-V will be making its local debut on April 19

Unlike the Indonesian market, the PH-spec next-gen Honda HR-V will only be offered in two variants, and the RS Turbo trim is not among the local options. Honda’s RS badge means that the vehicle comes with a different exterior and interior design that makes it standout from the regular variants.
