NEW YORK -- Honda's upcoming Fit-based subcompact crossover will be called the HR-V, the company said today in releasing the first image of the vehicle.

The HR-V, derived from the Fit hatchback, will go on sale in the United States later this year.


It will be positioned below the CR-V in Honda's crossover lineup, although Honda did not disclose pricing.

The CR-V's base price is $23,775, including destination charges, while Fit pricing starts at $16,315.

The HR-V will join a group of small crossovers such as the Nissan Juke, Jeep Renegade and Chevrolet Trax.

The HR-V will roll down the same Celaya, Mexico, assembly line as the Fit.

It will also share the Fit's "Magic Seat" second-row fold-flat seats.
