Honda’s all-new HR-V e:HEV has been named Car Design of the year by Red Dot. The Red Dot Winner Label has become established internationally as one of the most sought-after marks of quality for product design.

The HR-V’s contemporary style echoes the ‘noiseless’, elegant design direction of other recent Honda models, which has been recognised through a series of international award wins over recent years.

When designing and developing the latest generation HR-V, Honda engineers completely reimagined the popular compact-SUV from the ground up. Honda’s research found that modern consumers choose products not only on the basis of competent performance or appealing aesthetics, but also on how it integrates with their lives and whether the product fulfils their individual requirements.

As a result, the new-generation HR-V has a contemporary coupe-SUV body that achieves a desirable combination of premium and dynamic design and exceptional space efficiency. Both the interior and exterior embody Honda’s new simple, clean, modern design philosophy already seen in recent new models, and successfully extends the brand's reputation for quality, functionality and practicality.

Honda’s all-new HR-V e:HEV compact SUV, NT1100 tourer motorcycle, ADV350 ‘adventure’ scooter and EU32i generator have all secured the Red Dot Award: ‘Product Design 2022’ – a first time for Honda to receive the award cross all product ranges, Motorcycle, Automobile and Power Products. This highly coveted distinction is only bestowed upon products that excel in design quality and innovation.

The annual awards are decided by a panel of 50 international experts who test, evaluate and discuss each entry, with judging criteria reappraised and adapted each year to reflect the latest technical, social, economic and ecological requirements.
