Honda ZR-V 2024 Review

Honda ZR-V was introduced to the market in mid-2023. It is an all-new smaller SUV style vehicle that sits somewhere between the HR-V and CR-V.

The ZR-V comes in three different models with a petrol engine and one model with a hybrid engine.

This little SUV manages to look both stylish and muscular with a longer sloping bonnet and full wheel arches. I like the design and it looks bigger than it is. Think of a Civic on high heels.

Inside the ZR-V is well laid out with plenty of room for taller front occupants. The seats are comfortable, the steering wheel feels good in the hands and the overall visibility is open.

Like a lot of SUVs this size the rear seats are cramped, and the boot is small.

Standing out is the 9-inch central touch screen that has good user response and clarity. Another example of Honda finding its way again.

The normal models come with a 1.5L turbocharged petrol engine that drives the front wheels through a one speed CVT. The Hybrid version comes with a 2.0L petrol hybrid engine and the same CVT.

I drove the petrol version and found it to be responsive and easy to drive. It was smooth, quiet, and reasonably economical.

Pricing for the ZR-V ranges from $40,200 through to $54,900 for the Hybrid version. These are driveaway prices.
