Honda Australia has announced equipment updates for its HR-V small SUV and Jazz hatchbacks for the 2021 models that are on sale now

Both have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto using a new Display Audio infotainment system with a 7.0-inch capacitive touchscreen similar to those fitted to Hondas Civic and CR-V.

The system has voice recognition to activate Siri Eyes Free mode and Google Voice Search. They can also be accessed via a steering wheel-mounted control or the microphone button on the head unit.


The new infotainment system also offers phone mirroring via WebLink.

Metallic or pearlescent paint are now included in the Manufacturer’s List Price for the new HR-V VTi-S, RS and VTi-LX 21YM variants.

The HR-V and Jazz are covered by Honda’s five-year unlimited kilometre warranty.
