Subcompact-crossover SUVs are the new hot cakes and the Honda HR-V is one of the best examples. From basic LX to lavish Touring, there's a wide range of models and equipment to choose from, so the HR-V doesn't have to be a second car or merely a handy runabout. Especially when interior space is factored in.
There's plenty of room for passengers and/or packages, more than the Mazda CX-3. The Honda HR-V is thriftier with fuel than the Chevrolet Trax or Jeep Renegade. The Toyota C-HR and Nissan Kicks cannot offer all-wheel drive, but the HR-V can. Buyers will also be pleased by the steadfast Honda reliability and robust resale values down the road.
The HR-V's unit at least has simulated ratios, and the Sport trim has paddle shifters under the steering wheel to click through them. This trim also has a different electrically assisted steering setup to the rest of the range, delivering a firmer feel at high speeds, while making it easier during slower city driving --- when maneuvering or parking, for instance.
With its flip-up Magic Seat in the back, the HR-V can hold taller items that need to stand upright. A potted plant, for example. Offering almost 60 cubic feet of cargo space, the HR-V is one of the most commodious in its class.
Standard in EX trim and above, this array of driver aids includes collision and road-departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assistance. Honda's LaneWatch also comes in at the EX level, employing a passenger-side camera to display vehicles in the driver's blind spot when the turn signal is activated.

The main attraction of the HR-V's cabin is its space and how versatile that space can be. A young couple setting up their first home and making frequent trips to Ikea will find that the HR-V can handle a variety of shapes and sizes. Maximum cargo space is 58.8 cubic feet.
