Torque News: 2016 Honda HR-V surprisingly stable in high winds, heavy truck traffic

http://www.torquenews.com/1574/2016-...-truck-traffic

HR-V is surprisingly stable in crosswinds, while driven over transitionally, crappy road surfaces, or while fighting for position on the interstate while darting in and out of heavy truck traffic. I recently drove 2016 HR-V south on Interstate 5 through Oregon’s Willamette Valley, and was surprised by the available passing torque, stability of ride, and braking prowess exhibited by Honda’s latest entry in the growing subcompact crossover segment.
Despite 30 mph headwinds, semi truck generated turbulence and 95* temperatures, HR-V held its own with the cruise control set at 73 mph. The 1.8 liter fuel injected i-VTEC 4 cylinder engine, Honda CVT transmission and Real Time ™ all-wheel-drive, worked together seamlessly presenting a pleasurable drive, ride experience; while sipping gasoline, averaging 33 mpg.

Totally agree with all of that and it was all a surprise to me as well. This car is a hidden gem full of quality and thought.

I love it in traffic because then people will come wave at you because they've never seen a HR-V before.. (NO IT IS NOT A **** HYBRID OF A CRV!! arggh!)

Good to know! HR-V crosswind stability is not a topic addressed elsewhere.
