Honda HR-V 2017
Honda is one of the most modern design members of the HR-V class. The C-shaped door handles conceal C-pillars give the coupe perception and the HR-V’s lowered ceiling and high shoulder lines increase sportiness. The use of butterfly glasses also provided a clean profile.
When we go into the HR-V, we see that the modernity is maintained. The front console uses a ventilation grille design that covers the passenger side. Next, to this extraordinary preference, a 7-inch touchscreen multimedia screen is visible. Ventilation controls positioned underneath are also controlled by the touch panel.
The three-spoke steering wheel has plenty of control knobs on it. In this way, the driver can reach many settings without getting his hands on the steering wheel. The gearshift console has a high design for being close to the driver. An open field is created under the console. Here are the multimedia inputs and the storage compartment, which includes HDMI.

The front seats are comfortable enough. There is no viewing angle problem. In the rear seats, the use of flat floor in the special foot area increases comfort. The loading of the seat cushions can be folded up to increase the diversity. However, with its high shoulder and low roofline, darkened windows and narrow tailgate glass have created a somewhat gloomy environment.
In its class, there are both diesel and gasoline engines with automatic transmissions, while the Honda HR-V offers an automatic transmission with a 1.5-liter gasoline engine. The 1.6-liter diesel can only be taken with a 6-speed manual transmission. The CR-V is also available as a front-wheel drive and 4×4 drives to other alternatives.
A good example of the CVT transmission type is offered with our 1.5 i-VTEC engine. The system, which does not increase the engine speed unnecessarily, reacts like a progressive gearbox. In this way, driving comfort is not adversely affected. Manual shifting is not available. The S mode, which can only be managed from the gear console, is offered as a different option than D. When the gear selector is set to S mode, the engine speed rises and the ground is prepared for a more efficient acceleration.
The Brake Hold button, just behind the gear lever, takes over the brakes instead of the driver in congested traffic, preventing the car from slipping forward or backward on inclined surfaces.

The atmospheric engine is able to respond to the acceleration demands of 130 HP. When the engine speed increases at lower revs, the engine doesn’t have many attacks. The 1.5 i-VTEC and the CVT pair react at a reasonable speed for the intermediate acceleration needs.
When we look at the driving characteristics, we see that the steering and suspension settings monitor the comfort. Despite the high body and centre of gravity, the suspension system, which can control the body oscillations, gives confidence in sudden lane changes. The steering system does not have very hard settings. The steering makes it easy for the steering manoeuvres to allow the driver to steer without tiring.
Generally speaking, the Honda HR-V 1.5 i-VTEC CVT is one of the rational models of its class with its rich standard equipment, comfortable driving features and a functional cab.
