2016 Honda HR-V - Review & Road Test

2016 Honda HR-V: Cleaver Engineering at its Best!

Honda is well known for building the most efficient vehicles at an affordable price point. The 2016 HR-V is hands down the most fun to drive, fun to own, and affordable vehicle in its class.

Here is what a few of the experts have to say about the 2016 Honda HR-V:

Edmunds.com states that the 2016 Honda HR-V at Napleton Honda has a r
oomy interior and seating; versatile cargo loading thanks to unique rear seat; high fuel economy, and excellent outward visibility.

Car and Driver states that The All New
HR-V mixes angles and curves in an attractive design that lends it a sporty look while hiding its budget-friendly roots. A 141-hp 1.8-liter four comes with either a six-speed manual or CVT and front- or all-wheel drive. Many safety features are available, and the flat-folding second-row provides cargo-hauling bragging rights. Load it up with extras like lane-departure warning, a seven-inch touch-screen display, and a vehicle telematics system and the HR-V becomes a high-tech haven.

US NEW REPORTSAuto journalists say the 2016 Honda HR-V's interior uses soft-touch materials and hard plastics that are of decent quality. The HR-V's seats are roomy and nice to sit in, testers report. They are particularly impressed with the rear seats' ample head- and legroom, which they say make it one of the roomiest back rows they've seen in a subcompact SUV. Automotive journalists praise the 2016 Honda HR-V for its outstanding visibility in all directions. According to reviewers, the HR-V offers impressive standard features, which include a rearview camera, a USB port, a 5-inch LCD display, Bluetooth phone connectivity and steering wheel-mounted controls. Options include a 7-inch touch screen, automatic climate control, a power moonroof, navigation, satellite radio, push-button start and blind spot monitoring. Instead of typical dashboard buttons, the Honda HR-V has touch-sensitive controls for audio and climate systems. Critics agree that although the controls create a sleek dashboard layout, using them is complicated and distracting for drivers. The HR-V has 58.8 cubic feet of cargo space, which is one of the largest cargo capacities among subcompact SUVs. Test drivers like the HR-V's versatile storage features, including a forward-folding front passenger seat and a rear seat cushion that can be folded up or down.

Combined with a high-grade interior and good estimated gas mileage, the HR-V enters the segment poised to strongly challenge established and all-new models alike." -- Cars.com
