Honda UK has launched a new virtual showroom to mark the physical arrival in showrooms of the all-new HR-V later on in the year, making it even easier for customers to explore the car from the comfort of their homes.
The car browsing innovation offers customers an extremely realistic experience, including a virtual demonstration, of the latest coupé-styled SUV to join Honda’s hybrid car family before it arrives in our dealership - that is, the Honda main dealer at Ashford Orbital Park, JCB Honda.
Customers can take a 360° digital tour of the car in three different themes - “Seamlessly Connected”, “Ultra-Responsive” and “Cleverly Packaged”. Each environment shows different characteristics of the HR-V, the new hybrid electric vehicle from Honda. The virtual tour highlights features that are ideal for urban, rural and family buyers respectively. The experience provides a close-up look at both the interior and exterior of the car through various content hotspots, including videos and image galleries.
The virtual showroom aims to give customers access to the car before its arrival in our dealership, enabling prospective buyers to discover the vehicle and envisage what it might be like to own a Honda HR-V.
In addition, Honda is offering a personalised ‘Virtual Demonstration’ whereby customers can book a live product demonstration with a Honda product expert for a digital experience tailored to meet their individual needs. Customers will receive a 30-minute, one-on-one consultation from the comfort of their home, that will include a guided viewing of the HR-V and live responses to any questions. The service is running until 12th November, customers can sign up for their slot here:
Keith Dowle, Franchise Manager of JCB Honda Ashford, in Kent, commented: “Our brand-new HR-V is a truly unique car. It offers a perfect blend of sports coupé-style SUV looks, with a dynamic and efficient driving experience through a clever e: HEV powertrain inspired by F1 technology."
“Like the product, we also wanted to take an innovative approach to its launch and make the car really accessible. In an age where there is an increasing trend of customers opting for online car-buying at their convenience, our aim is to tailor this journey to the demands of our customers with an up-close and personal experience through an immersive digital platform. Our virtual showroom and walkthroughs give customers unrivalled access, and the opportunity to view the new HR-Vin a truly convenient way before it arrives at JCB Honda”
