We commend Honda for their willingness to try something new. The Honda HR-V came in with a uniquely different design but there is a price to pay for a design like this.
The Honda HR-V definitely looks good. The crossover was given a coupe-like design with the sloping roof design and the unique rear door design. At the first glance, you would think that you are looking at a coupe because of how the doors are design and the position of the door handles but it is, in fact, a crossover with four doors.
However, because of the sloping roof, the rear passenger will have to deal with the limited headroom that the Honda HR-V has to offer. Honda did try to make up for it by offering a little more legroom but it sitting in the back can get a little uncomfortable if you are taller.
The Honda HR-V currently runs on a 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine that will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
