2018 Honda HR-V VTi review

The Honda HR-V isn't the sexiest compact crossover going around, but it has plenty to offer practical buyers.

2019 Honda HR-V VTi-LX review

Is a mild update enough to keep Honda's HR-V relevant amongst a bunch of eager competitors?

2018 Honda HR-V VTi-S review

Honda’s HR-V remains the best small crossover on sale if your priority is finding maximum interior space within minimal exterior dimensions. It won’t make your pulse race, but it’s a master of unpretentious utility.

2020 Honda HR-V VTi-LX review

Regardless of what you drive, you could be forgiven for suffering from small-SUV fatigue. It feels as though every week there’s a new model announced, or an old model being reinvigorated to vie for our attention. One such forgotten contender is the 2020 Honda HR-V VTi-LX – an unassumingly attractive car with ample cabin space and a premium equipment offering, all for under $40,000...

Honda Magic Seats and the HR-V: How capacious can you go?

We've long heaped praise on Honda for its 'Magic Seats' design, conceived to make the company's passenger cars as practical as possible. Almost as practical as a small commercial van, in fact. To properly test the case, we set ourselves the challenge of flipping the rear seats of the little HR-V and packing it to the roof...

2015 Honda HR-V VTi-L Review

Having a long-term car in the CarAdvice garage is like starting a new relationship. For a while its new and exciting, then you may wonder if you’re getting a little bored, then you’re falling in love again, then little things start to get annoying, then you realise you’re being picky and the good outweighs the bad...

2019 Hyundai Kona v Honda HR-V comparison

With a sprinkling of added freshness injected into ranges in the latter half of 2018, it’s high time we matched up two perennial favourites of the trendy small-crossover set: the Honda HR-V and Hyundai Kona. Be it the prolific wider choice on offer in segment or the variety offered within each marque’s particular range, the two variants we’ve lined up here haven’t had much of shake through the CarAdvice garages either...

2019 Holden Trax LTZ v Honda HR-V RS comparison

Small SUVs currently account for around 12 per cent of the Australian new-car market, and it's still growing despite a recent overall decline in sales. Nearly 10,000 of these small crossovers are registered each month, and there are 26 different models competing for that volume right now...

Honda HR-V v Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross v Subaru XV comparison

Small crossover SUVs with a predominantly urban focus have taken over the road. Just look around you. But the segment has splintered into a few directions exemplified by the trio you see here. They’re similar in most ways, but differ enough to corner specific subsets...

2015 Honda HR-V VTi-S Review

It was summer in 2016 when my wife and I decided it was time to purchase a car that would be more supportive for the both of us (coming from a Nissan Micra and a HSV VXR). The next few months I seemed to have ignored the 'supportive' prerequisite that my wife set out for us and focussed on getting one of those hot hatches that everyone bangs on about; the GTI I think they call it? Try as I might to make the numbers work, but ultimately the wallet and the bank disagreed with me, and as a result I...

2016 Honda HR-V VTi-S review

  I bought my Honda HRV VTI-S in December 2016. I was attracted by the price, look and overall package of the vehicle. I was also looking for reliability and good resale value, as I put a few kilometres on my cars. I figured Honda is one of the best options for the great build quality, fit and finish, and wear and tear...

2015 Honda HR-V VTi-S review

A Note from the Editor: A stock image has been supplied with this review. This is the first car we have bought in years, having company cars most of my life. The criteria for this newly retired person was ease of entry/exit, sitting a little higher for better vision, flexible carrying space, economy, reliability, and look good in the driveway...

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. The interior is fantastic, sumptuous leather seats that are heated for those cold winter days, a full length sunroof and an interior layout that has everything in its right place...
