The HR-V is a stylish, compact urban SUV that comes with reasonable interior space and a lot of safety and comfort features.

The Honda HR-V has had many changes over the years and the latest version is the most elegant.

At the heart is a hybrid electric powertrain with two compact, powerful electric motors. These work alongside an Atkinson cycle 1.5-litre petrol engine, a lithium-ion battery, and a fixed gear transmission.

The power control unit constantly cycles between Electric Drive, Hybrid Drive or Engine Drive depending on which is the most fuel-efficient drive mode at that time.

What all that means is that the HR-V Hybrid has excellent economy of around 4.3 litres per 100 kilometres. Its also zippy around town with a smooth ride.

Inside the HR-V is comfortable, with good driver ergonomics and plenty of space considering its overall size. The seats are particularly comfortable and the rear seat and boot area benefits from Honda’s “magic seat” design which gives maximum flexibility.

Overall Honda’s HR-V hybrid SUV is a tidy little unit and priced from $47,000 drive away.
