Honda Digs Into Its Past For The 2016 HR-V: Ad Break

As consumer taste continues to morph, automakers are responding. The compact-crossover segment has become the latest hot spot, as consumers yearn for added space, with car-like dynamics. And apparently will still do anything to not be seen in a wagon variant.

But we digress. Honda has served up their latest advertisement for the 2016 HR-V, which slots below the storied CR-V nameplate as a smaller CUV option. The advertisement follows Honda’s forward-thinking in autos in chronological order, as we see a bright-yellow CRX transform into a Civic, eventually molding into an S2000 before, finally, a Honda Element delivers the HR-V.

It’s much like the automotive equivalent to Russian nesting dolls. Except, the principle of innovation is what hatches the sporty driving dynamics, and efficient packaging of the HR-V, not size.

It’s also refreshing to see Honda has not forgotten what made the automaker such a bright spot for so many years. Hopefully, the HR-V is a sign Honda’s mojo is back and here to stay. Check out the video for yourself down below.
