A delight to drive

This car combines local driving with highway distance trips The car is used daily. It is a delight to drive.Servicing is annual. Instrumentation is a real negative because it is hard to read and reset. The lack of a digital speed readout is so frustrating Show details

Great medium size car

I use my car for general everyday use and long distant drives very comfortable, it gets serviced at the Honda dealership in Maitland when it is due. It would be handy if it had air conditioner ducts in the back of the car other than that it is a great car to drive. Show details ·  1

Economical, roomy car

Reliable daily use car. Handled longer drives well for holidays, etc. Not being a big SUV means parking is no problem. But there is plenty of room in back seat for tall passengers. Plenty of safety features and extra controls for comfortable driving like cruise control. Can be some cabin noise at higher speeds. I have owned it for nearly two years and I have not had any mechanical problems. I get it serviced yearly. Show details ·  1

Great value for money

We are elderly and use our car daily - mainly for local running (20km radius) but occasionally do a longer trip. Everything on our HRV has kept operating as it should since new and the many warning signals and driving aids are very helpful. Because of this we class our car as very reliable. Fuel consumption is modest and satisfactory. The road noise is more than we would like and the suspension at times seems a bit hard but over all we are delighted with the HRV S and regard it as great value for money. Show details ·  1

Good but not perfect

The air conditioning screen is too low because you have to reach around the gear selector when it is in Drive to reach it and you have to look down at the screen which means you can't see the road for that time. If it was higher then you could look at the screen and you would still see the road in your peripheral vision. So that would be safer. Some of the options in the main screen could be there because some of them cannot be selected while the car is moving. Show details ·  2

Great car lots of room

Bought the car for my wife and ended up selling my car and using this as a family car. Lots of room in the back seat even though I am over 6ft tall. The boot is a great size. The main let down is the media screen. When in reverse it can take a while to adjust the camera from dark to light (reversing out of the garage). I also find it not the greatest for streaming music from my iPhone. Minor issues as it can corner quite quickly, and is quite good to drive noting it is not a sports car. I have recommended the car to my parents and they have bought one as well  Show details ·  1

Disappointed

Disappointed with the way it handles on the open road, bounces around. I despise the GPS system, very unreliable. Unimpressed with so called magic seats. Wish I'd bought another Civic. Show details

I just love my HVRS

I use my car almost every day for short trips e.g only done 7000 kms in the first year, Had the car serviced after 12 months. I'm retired my wife no longer drives. There are many features I love about the car. The comfort, handling, extra height and whilst it is a small SUV it has tremendous cargo space. Show details ·  1

Service cant tell me what it might be. Some weird message on dash think it was cbs its gone now never found out what the problem was. Radio hard to set stations even after reading the manual. Show details

Hard to read Radio screen

It’s hard to read infotainment screen when the sun shines on it, it could do with a sun shade,
Would like to see single button push to open drivers door and double button push for passengers door.
Would like to see a better warning system for starting button when it needs to be switched off as I have been distracted and left vehicle running for 3 hours
Thank you Show details ·  1

(2020 Build) Does what we need it for

Coming from a 2018 Civic Hatch that I *loved* but my partly disabled wife had great difficulty getting into or out of (not the car's fault) the HR-V is filling our needs. Doesn't have all the electronic gadgetry of the Civic, but has enough to keep me relatively happy fiddling with things. Android Auto is a great leveller and works well. Plenty of space.

Excellent dealer - Trinity Honda in Cairns!

The only real negatives we have: (1) my wife is short, and cannot reach the tailgate to close it. Any shopping she does, or anything she needs to carry, has to go in the back seat area; (2) not much interior storage (console, door pockets); (3) no electronic access for the rear seat passengers. Show details ·  1

A useful vehicle , nice to drive

I use the car for short local trips , i.e.shopping locally and occasional longer trips.
i use the car almost daily.
The car is serviced when recommended. No issues though we were told there was a recall on this model but so far no further contact from the dealer.
Aircon system could be better. Central screen not good visibility in sunlight esp. sat nav. could have folding mirrors. Show details ·  1

Exactly what I wanted

The important things to me in my purchase decision were space, ease of driving and a good air conditioner. The HRV in this respect is brilliant. There is tons of space for rear passengers and the boot space is also great. I prefer a smooth slow drive and this is where the CVT really shines. It gives me smooth acceleration and is always in the right gear when I need it. In addition I also get great fuel economy and as an added bonus it runs on unleaded. And the air? Brilliant, best I have ever had. Show details ·  1

Great family transport

Our family car is used every day mainly for shopping excursions and attending medical appointments. Its capacity to hold three incapacitated adults in comfort while offering the capability to load large loads of groceries (7 freezer bags) is very much appreciated. All services are done per the manual at the Honda dealer. Show details ·  1

enjoyable to drive

use every day for family gatherings, shopping and visits to our holiday house at Phillip Island.
It was being serviced, as per the manual at our dealers service department which was great, very local. The dealer has since 'd closed down and I believe the other dealer at Mornington (our second choice) is closing also Not at all happy with that which has often led to negative remarks to friends!! Show details ·  1

Perfect car for me

I love my car. It's the perfect size to park and easy to drive. It's surprising how much room there is inside. The back seats fold up and give you so much more room to transport big things. I've had no issues mechanically and recommend the HR-V to everybody from singles to families.  Show details ·  1

20k Service

Why haven't Honda their own servicing department with proper facilities???? VERY poor facility at Springwood, worse experience i have experienced, better service at a backyard mechanic. There must have been 20 cars lined up waiting to drop off cars in the underground. Expect better honda, Brisbane not much better.

Used for school and work run everyday. Serviced yearly when due, with no issues. Only short falls is storage space in the front (poor cup holders etc). Do find cvt can be a bit jurky, unresponsive at times. A traditional 6 speed automatic would have been nice. Show details ·  1
