Honda HR-V

(2015 - present)

The Honda HR-V is a small SUV/crossover that shares its platform with the Jazz supermini. The current model is the second vehicle to use the HR-V name, with a similar small crossover model offered a decade before.

The HR-V has received average to good reviews from the UK motoring media, with our overall Expert Rating currently placing it in the middle of the small SUV/crossover field. The new HR-V Sport model has received generally poorer reviews than the rest of the range.

The Honda HR-V has received particular praise for its spaciousness, practicality and versatility, but has been criticised for a lack of refinement and poor value for money compared to rivals.
