Here are our top five reasons for choosing the Honda HR-V. There are lots of reasons why people choose different cars, but we think you would be hard put to beat these five reasons for getting behind the wheel of the HR-V, giving it a test drive and making it your car of choice.
Lots of usable space, made even more versatile by the Honda Magic Seat System and the 60:40 split rear seat. The 470-litre capacity of the luggage area expands to a superb 1,026 litres with the rear seats folded. The tailgate is extra wide and the loading height has been kept low to make loading easier. But all that luggage space doesn’t compromise the excellent headroom and leg room, front and back.
Economy and efficiency:
Look at the choice of engines and marvel at their efficiency. They include the 130PS 1.5 i-VTEC petrol, the 120PS 1.6 i-DTEC, both with manual transmission, or the new 1.5 litre i-VTEC power unit, which is available with a CVT automatic transmission. With the help of the Honda ‘idle stop’ system, the HR-V can achieve CO2 emission figures as low as 104g/km. There’s also an ECON button to maximise fuel economy.
Apart from what you should expect on any modern car, like airbags and whiplash-reducing head restraints, the HR-V offers Vehicle Stability Assist for more effective braking, Hill Start Assist to prevent your car rolling back when starting off on a slope, Brake Assist to stop the car more quickly in an emergency, Emergency Stop Signal to activate the hazard warning lights after emergency braking and the amazing City-Brake Active System. On the EX and SE, you can also benefit from Intelligent Speed Limiter, Traffic Sign Recognition System, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, and the Highbeam Support System.
Even the standard S model gets technology like the headlight on/off timer, motion adaptive electric power steering and climate control automatic air conditioning, whilst the EX comes with Honda CONNECT with Garmin navigation, heated front seats, a rear parking camera and a whole lot more.
Look and love it:
Just one look and you’ll be hooked. The Honda HR-V has all the look of a coupé and all the space and practicality of an SUV. It’s sleek, it’s bold, and it’s beautiful with its robust exterior and sporty character. Designed to impress and impressive in its passion for a life on the road, wherever you travel.
