Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 28 - 29 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Values are dropping faster now it has been replaced; on the thirsty side - some rivals give better mpg. Insurance is about average for this class; Honda parts and servicing tend to be on the pricey side.

Has proven to be durable and up to Honda's usual standards. Service intervals are long and could invite neglect.
