Compact, stylish and solidly
built, the Honda HR-V offers a comfortable ride and comes well-equipped too. Available
now from Yeomans Honda, this economical SUV can be selected in S, SE or EX trim
The good-looking HR-V features an expressive front fascia, with streamlined headlights that develop seamlessly from an attractively-styled radiator grille. The car is also fitted with lightweight and dapper 16-inch alloy wheels, and features elegant body-coloured fixtures such as a tailgate-mounted spoiler. This crossover has plenty of practical qualities too, including power-adjustable and heated door mirrors and dusk-sensing, follow-me-home headlights.
A spacious and well-appointed five-person cabin provides the driver with a height-adjustable position and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, enabling him or her to quickly get comfortable. Also included as standard are automatic air conditioning and electrically operated front and rear windows, enabling quick and easy control of the in-cabin temperature. The HR-V sports a minimum-capacity 448-litre boot, which is bigger than that offered by, for example, Nissan’s Qashqai and Juke. If more cargo capacity is required, simply fold the vehicle’s rear seats to reveal 1,026 litres of luggage space.
Entry-level S grades are fitted with a 1.5-litre 128bhp petrol engine as standard, which is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. This produces a nippy 0-60mph in approximately 10.4 seconds, up to 50.4mpg and a 130g/km CO2 emission figure. A 1.6-litre 118bhp diesel unit delivers optimal fuel-efficiency – as much as 70.6mpg – and produces emissions as low as 104g/km. The HR-V features an ECON button which, when pressed, configures the engine’s set-up to maximise mileage by reducing performance levels.
The HR-V’s four-speaker sound system – which can be safely and easily operated via steering wheel-mounted controls – includes an MP3-compatible CD player, DAB radio and an FM/AM tuner. Bluetooth® is featured too, enabling audio streaming and hands-free telephoning, and you can plug-and-play your compatible media devices using the car’s USB and AUX inputs.
This SUV has been awarded a maximum five-star crash-test rating by passenger-safety specialists Euro NCAP. The vehicle comes with an array of protective features and driver aids, such as ISOFIX points which keep a child more secure than a normal seatbelt.
Tyre Deflation Warning System is featured too, monitoring the air-pressure of each tyre and alerting the driver if low pressure begins to occur.
