Used Honda HR-V for sale
The Honda HR-V is a compact SUV that offers a high level of practicality as well as impressive fuel economy figures. Larger than the Civic hatchback, but smaller than the CR-V SUV, the HR-V is fantastic middle ground in the Honda range.
The SUV market has received a boom in popularity as of late, with many opting for larger cars over more conventional hatchbacks, meaning competition is fierce. But the Honda HR-V comes with a range of benefits that make it a great choice, such as:
- Simple engine line-up
- Spacious interior
- Refined driving experience
- Reasonable running costs
- High build quality
Engines and Driving Experience
Introduced in 2021, the latest generation of HR-V comes exclusively with one hybrid engine:
- 1.5-litre petrol hybrid: 129bhp, 0 to 62mph in 10.6 seconds and 52.3mpg combined.
If you're not quite convinced by hybrid powertrains, previous generations offer traditional internal combustion engines that are more common on the used market:
- 1.5-litre i-VTEC: 128bhp, 0 to 62 mph in 10.1 seconds and 49.6mpg combined.
- 1.5-litre i-VTEC Turbo Sport: 180bhp, 0 to 62mph in 7.8 seconds and 42.2mpg combined.
- 1.6-litre i-DTEC: 118bhp, 0 to 62mph in 10.2 seconds and 68.9mpg combined.
In terms of feel, the HR-V possesses agile handling, giving it an enjoyable drive. When cruising it becomes more refined and combats wind and road noise fairly well.
Practicality and Running Costs
Practicality is one of the HR-V's strongest suits, providing decent amounts of head and legroom no matter where you're sat within the cabin. Honda have also included their useful 'magic seats' in the rear which can fold up like cinema seats to make life easier when loading larger items. There's also ISOFIX mounting points in the rear, which allows for the easy fitment of child seats.
470 litres (319 with a hybrid) of boot space is enough for various bits of luggage, but if you need extra room you can fold the rear seats down to give you an impressive 1,533 litres (1,289 with a hybrid) of space.
Getting insured won't damage the bank account too much either. Insurance resides between groups 18 to 27 (out of 50) dependent upon specification. Low cost servicing and maintenance can also be completed at your local Evans Halshaw dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The interior feels well-built and offers plenty of high-quality materials throughout. The dashboard is made up of physical switches and buttons as well as a touchscreen, allowing you to have full control over the vehicle's functions.
Various bits of technology are also available across the HR-V range. Entry-level models get a touchscreen infotainment system as well as cruise control, while opting for a higher specification can see you unlock features such as satellite navigation and parking sensors which make life easier while out on the road.
Honda are known for producing cars with excellent safety ratings, with the HR-V meeting this reputation with a full five-star safety rating during Euro NCAP's crash tests. Available safety equipment includes:
- City Brake Active System
- Advanced Driver Assist System
- Parking Camera
- Traffic Sign Recognition
- Lane Departure Warning
Is the Honda HR-V right for me?
The Honda HR-V is an attractive vehicle and a great all-rounder thanks to its high build quality, impressive level of practicality and reasonable running costs.
However, the SUV market is highly competitive and is host to a range of great rivals such as the comfortable Citroën C3 Aircross and the stylish SEAT Arona. The Ford Puma's driving experience is also highly-rated, whilst the Audi Q2 offers a high level of luxury.
But the Honda HR-V is still a highly dependable vehicle that shouldn't be overlooked.
