Thumbs up Newcomer questions...

Hi Everyone! I've combed your message boards for the past couple weeks and finally joined! I'm grateful for all of the information you've all provided so far. I'm left with a few questions that are left unanswered for the most part.

1. At 6'4", do you predict I'll have adequate headroom in an EX? I saw that you lose 1.9" with the moonroof. That has been quite significant in previous Japanese cars I've driven and less of an issue in German cars. I drive a 2010 Golf TDI now and the moonroof isn't an issue. There are some features on the EX that I really like, but I never use a moonroof and wish it was optional on the EX.

2. Is the cloth interior quality/finish identical in the LX and EX trims? I'm guessing it is.

3. Does anyone have any images of the LX dash? I've yet to see one except perhaps on some Australian site some time ago. I'm curious about which knobs are present and how it differs in other ways. I know the screen is only 5". I am a bit concerned about sound quality as others have mentioned since I have a nice HD stereo in my current vehicle. I'm not sure it's HD that makes the difference, but the sound is crisp and enjoyable at low volume which is my preference.

I'm leaning toward an EX-AWD in white with the gray interior. I have never owned an AWD or 4WD vehicle before, but for resale purposes, Denver drivers are convinced they need it if the car came with it as an option. (I've never needed AWD and have lived here for 30+ years).

Thanks for your input!

It will be hard to answer your questions until someone has actually sat in an LX. They are pretty scarce out there right now.
I will report if I get to, but others may be able to help you sooner.

1. I'm 6'1" and had plenty of headroom with the sunroof.

2. As always, EX cloth seat quality is superior to the lower level LX.

I did not know that. My enthusiasm for this car is really beginning to lessen. I will not like it if the LX fabric is cheap and thin.


Hopefully I will see an LX soon.

Do we know the LX has different (presumably inferior) fabric? HRV4ME, did you find that somewhere, or are you extrapolating from other Honda models? Can one of the Honda sales folks find out?

In Canada the LX gets some EX-level features, like the 7-inch screen. Don't know if the fabric will be any different.

Don't lose hope, Bice...

Where are you getting that the seat cloth quality in the LX is inferior? I hadn't heard that before.

Not inferior, just different. That was according to one of the representatives at a recent auto show.

We haven't see anything officially stated by Honda Corporate that the seat fabric is any different in the LX vs. EX. You would think there would be two cloth options shown on the HR-V website if there were. The rep. may have thought that there would be a difference because the Fit does have different cloth seats for the LX and EX, but I'm willing to bet that the HR-V will just have the 1 type of cloth seat for both LX and EX.

Your own words: "EX cloth seat quality is superior to the lower level LX"

Per the transitive property of inequalities, that's the same thing as saying "LX cloth seat quality is inferior to higher level EX".
