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 32 - 33 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.

Three-year warranty, plus Honda reliability, will keep costs down and it should hold its value. Fuel economy is okay for a 4×4, but will seem a bit thirsty if you’re used to a conventional hatchback. Honda dealer servicing tends to be pricey. Depreciation is quickening.

HR-V is quite a polluting model. With an average of 203 g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are a touch high for a medium-sized estate. It’s worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is not very frugal, averaging 33 mpg.

The usual Honda story. Mechanically sound and the interior is well screwed together. Some owners report a judder and vibration when moving off. Replacing the CVT oil seems to correct the problem. As it gets older, the only faults will come from neglectful owners.
