Small SUVs appeal to those who want something in the way of height for their car, but they don’t want a huge truck to drive around. They want more space than a hatchback perhaps, but not so much space they can’t fit into parking spots in the city. I’ve been testing small SUVs for a few weeks and some are roomier than others - the HR-V falls into the roomy category.
In the front I didn’t feel cramped at all and even my 185cm husband had enough leg and headroom.
Inside is well designed for a model this far down the range in this price bracket. There’s a high gloss black finish around the centre console which adds a premium touch, and nothing looks too cheap or as though it's been built on a budget.
Honda relies on its own multimedia system with a built-in sat nav and Bluetooth connectivity on the 7.0-inch touchscreen. It doesn’t come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which you will find on some of its rivals. I was still able to connect my music and play podcasts through the sound system and the sound from the speakers was good, however there’s no digital radio and the sat nav is not as quick and easy to use as Apple or Google maps.
