The Honda HR-V is an SUV offering lots of space and it's also cheap to run. There's also impressive handling with the HR-V having plenty of equipment.
The Honda HR-V has a good choice of efficient 1.6 diesel units and also 1.5 petrol engines. The diesel unit should return around 70 mpg with emissions of 104g/km. The petrol i-VTEC unit should return 50 mpg when mated with a six speed manual gearbox - though the automatic version is just a few mpg less. The manual gearboxes deliver good performance and smooth changes while the automatic offers nice delivery too so the 1.5 litre petrol engine will reach 62 mph in just over 10 seconds with the manual gearbox and 11.4 seconds with the automatic. The diesel unit will do the same sprint slightly quicker.
There's lots of space for adults on board and the Honda HR-V has a large boot which helps with practicality - as do the clever folding seats to create more space when needed. The exterior is also one of the most stylish designs currently available and it stands out from a crowded marketplace with an impressive offering.
The Honda HR-V also comes with a decent amount of equipment with the mid-trim level coming with dual zone climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and DAB radio. Other models come with satnav.
The car is nice to handle around town and it's comfortable over long distances at speed on motorways as well; this is mainly down to the soft suspension which deals with bumps and rough roads well. While it's designed as a sporty SUV, it's really a cruiser with lots of legroom for adult passengers and the interior has a premium feel to it. The designer is also practical and it's an ideal choice for families.
Essentially, the Honda HR-V is a well-made and well-designed stylish compact crossover that offers a lot for a rapidly growing segment and drivers will be reassured that this is a quality crossover that delivers on every level.
