The subcompact crossover SUV developed by Honda launched in 2014 with revamped look and increased performance. HR-V stands for Hi-rider Revolutionary Vehicle and was developed for drivers looking for the size and benefit of a SUV but still retaining the performance and cost of a smaller compact car.
Well-built and attractive in design, the HR-V was one of the first compact SUVs to hit the marketplace in 2014 rivalling the likes of the Nissan Juke. Despite the SUV label, the HR-V is a front-wheeled drive car but provides light steering, easy handling and firm grip on the road. The HR-V proves to be popular amongst families, with its smooth drive at higher speeds and reduced road noise making long family trips more comfortable. The full five star Euro NCAP rating also means it’s one of the safest cars on the road to drive.
The Honda HR-V is a great used car to buy, not just for Honda’s reputation as one of the most reliable car manufacturers on the planet but also for developing fuel efficient engines. Diesel versions of the HR-V can achieve 70+ MPG when driven carefully and residual value looking better than other rivals in the SUV marketplace.
One of the most popular features of the Honda HR-V is the ‘Magic Seats’ that can also be found in the Honda Jazz. The rear seats can be folded up like cinema seats allowing for extra space in the back of the car.
Western Honda stock a variety of specifications of the Honda HR-V range including petrol and diesel engines with prices starting around circa £17,000 and up to £24,000 for ultra-low mileage high spec HR-V cars.
