The company has recently released the teaser of the new HR-V, according to which, this SUV has been given a more sporty and aggressive design than before. With the growing demand for compact SUV cars across the globe, Honda is planning to gain a foothold in this segment with the update of the HR-V to its lineup.

The fog lamps are housed in the stylish looking black housing of the bumper.
