Interested in a Honda ZR-V?
    Let us help you take the next step

    The Honda ZR-V enters 2024 with the same price and equipment list as featured in 2023.

    The newly introduced ZR-V is pitched as a second mid-sized SUV for the brand and therefore rivals the likes of the Mazda CX-5.

    It slots between the small HR-V and mid-sized CR-V in Honda’s line-up, the latter of which offers a third row of seating.

    All ZR-V models come with a five-year Honda Connect subscription, which allows you to use a smartphone app to remotely control the lights, climate control and door locks and to view information on the vehicle.

    Other features include automatic collision detection and a geofence and speed alert.

    The Civic-based ZR-V uses an “enhanced version of Honda’s global architecture”, and features MacPherson strut front and independent multi-link rear suspension.

    Launched midway through 2023, by the end of November, Honda had sold 1682 examples – not far off the new HR-V (1928 sales), and more than both the Honda Civic (1164 sales) and rival Skoda Karoq (1300 sales).
