2015 Honda HR-V VTi-L Review

Having owned a HRV for over a year there has been nothing to complain about but lots to rave about. It looks great and people have commented that it looks like a BMW.

I purchased our HRV STi in Jan 2016 and am very satisfied overall. Economy: tried E10 but not worth it-consumption increases. Tried R95 but not worth it either. Consumption decreases but only by about 5% whereas cost is 10-12% more. 91Ron gives us approx. 8.5km/L around town and 6.8km/L country (50% with air con, cruise at 102 kph)...

2015 Honda HR-V VTi-S Review

Just did a trip from Hervey Bay via Brisbane to Tenterfield and back with 3 large adults in the vehicle all with an overnight bag each and all commented on how good the vehicle drove and ride comfort for a small vehicle...
