Editor's Overview

The 2018 Honda HR-V is a subcompact-crossover SUV that offers more interior room than the Mazda CX-3 and a lower price than the slightly larger Subaru Crosstrek. The HR-V delivers great fuel economy and handling, but its interior is marred by an overabundance of touch-screen-like controls and the glaring omission of driver-assist features such as pre-collision braking and lane-departure warning.

The Honda hr-v has a back-up camera, so you can see close as well as far away.

The Honda hr-v is very comfortable. It gets about 36 miles to the gallon. It features a backing camera, which is great. It helps you see close up behind you as well as a great distance on either side. I love the Bluetooth for hands free calling or answering your phone. My only problem for me is it is not a large enough of a vehicle for someone who has to transport a person who needs a wheelchair or is on oxygen. The oxygen tank fits in, but awkwardly. The wheelchair fits in the back if you do not have any passengers that need to ride back there, because the seats need to be folded down. If it wasn't for that this is a great vehicle.

Honda-hr. is a great vehicle especially for parents of small children.

I can sync my phone to the car so I can play music from my phone through the speakers, make hands free phone calls and also use my GPS to find my car if I forget where I parked it. The trunk is great because I can change my daughter’s diaper in it and I can also fold over the back seats if I need to use the back of my car to transport a lot of stuff or something large that wouldn't fit inside a normal car. I also love the backup camera. I never have to worry about misjudging the distance and bumping into other cars anymore when I am backing up or parallel parking in a tight spot.

Honda HR-V - Reliable Honda, Great Deal

The window tint is spotted when I wear polarized sunglasses. When the car is in reverse, it kind of vibrates/shakes. The interior is really basic. But I like the way it drives, that it's high off the ground, and I like the benefits of having an SUV without the large size. The back seat headrests are uncomfortable for passengers unless extended and when extended, create visual obstruction. I got an amazing deal on it, but if I hadn't, I would have opted for another vehicle. I really like the way it looks and the body style though.
