The new 2016 Honda HR-V, the latest Honda subcompact crossover SUV, has been earning praise around the world for its smart design, exceptional efficiency, high-tech features, and capacious cargo space. The automotive press has nearly unilaterally blessed the HR-V with top honors, in this increasingly popular segment. Want to find out more about what the experts are talking about? Read on!


Edmunds praised the 2016 Honda HR-V for its “roomy interior and seating; versatile cargo loading thanks to unique rear seat; high fuel economy; [and] excellent outward visibility.” Edmunds editors went on to say, “The HR-V also provides high fuel economy, a sporty driving feel, available all-wheel drive and a solid collection of tech and convenience features for the money.”

Matt Degen of Kelley Blue Book said that, “The HR-V aims to do more with less and largely succeeds thanks to its easy driving manners, good fuel economy and bigger-than-you-think interior.”


Jason Fogelson wrote at the Forbes Life blog that the “HR-V is good looking, fuel efficient and affordably priced.” He went on to praise the Honda strategy, saying, “By waiting for the market to get established, Honda has had a chance to benchmark the competition and come up with a winner. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a whole lot of HR-V compact crossovers on the road in the very near future.” Review senior editor Mike Hanley said that the 2016 Honda HR-V has “one of the roomiest – and most configurable – interiors in the class.”

Automobile Magazine

Automobile editor Joseph Capparella said, “The more you look at the 2016 Honda HR-V in the context of Honda’s lineup, the more compelling it gets. For a similar price and only a small fuel-economy penalty compared with the Civic or the Fit, the 2016 Honda HR-V offers more cargo space, available all-wheel drive, a high seating position that everyone seems to love, and a more cocooned driving experience. It’s also more maneuverable, more efficient, and less expensive than the CR-V.”
