What the Critics Say

For a reasonable price and with reasonable exterior dimensions for easier parking and maneuverability, the HR-V boasts passenger and cargo space that matches or betters far larger vehicles. The secret to this success is its so-called “Magic Seat,” borrowed from Honda’s Fit, which flips its seat bottom up or folds completely flat into the floor.” – Autotrader
For urban drivers who focus on practicality, parking and maneuverability are a snap. The HR-V feels as if you’re driving a tall car, not a brawny SUV.” – Consumer Reports
