Product Overview

Honda HR-V Mk3 is an affordable subcompact crossover in production from 2021. It is available with a range of inline-4 engines that displaced 1.5 to 1.8 liters.
Compared to previous generations, the Mk3 HR-V has a much sportier styling. Its tiny engines have received some bumps in output, too. At the same time, Honda continues to use CVT transmission, making it a not-so-reliable vehicle overall.
The hybrid drivetrain can help the owner save on fuel and car tax, though regulators seems to prefer the more complex PHEV instead.

Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
Honda’s ‘Magic Seats’ make a return, too, in the HR-V. As the fuel tank is under the front seats, the rear seat cushions can be flipped back to create a tall load space that easily houses something like a bicycle. The engine fabric, steering wheel, buttons, armrests and synthetic leather inserts on the dashboard feel great. The rest of the interior is a mix of some particularly pleasing and some particularly disappointing materials.

Pros
  • Comfortable ride
  • Excellent infotainment system
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • No hybrid option
  • Terrible interior materials

Sentiment Score 54%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Honda HR-V is a reasonably practical option for buyers wanting a compact SUV that delivers great fuel economy and useful interior space. Its family car credentials are boosted further by excellent safety kit and decent on-board tech. But it is more expensive to buy compared with its close rivals and, while it performs the basics well, it ultimately doesn’t do enough to outshine the class leaders.

Pros
  • Decent fuel economy
  • Decent standard kit
Cons
  • More expensive than rivals
  • No manual gearbox option

autoexpress[3]

Sentiment Score 54%
Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The Honda HR-V is powered by hybrid tech adapted from the Jazz supermini. It combines a 1.5-litre petrol engine with two electric motors to produce 129bhp. The car will actively switch between electric, combustion power or a combination of both depending on the driving scenario. A nine-inch touchscreen infotainment set-up is standard on all models.

Pros
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Decent fuel economy
  • Good cabin quality
Cons
  • Lack of grunt
  • No eCVT gearbox

carmagazine[4]

Sentiment Score 60%
Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
Rear space is impressive, with only headroom for the tallest of adults being affected by the HR-V's sloping roofline. Honda's Magic Seats are still present and correct, which allow you to flip up the seat bases so you can stand tall things in the rear footwells. The boot's 316-litre load area is paltry, even compared to the form-over-function Vauxhall Mokka.

Pros
  • Powerful e:HEV engine
  • Comfortable to drive
Cons
  • No adaptive damping or road-scanning
  • Pricier than rivals
