I think because of the small size and economy of the HR-V; it will appeal to vast demographics. From teenagers(18 and over) to small business owners. I think the retirement crowd will buy it for a runaround town vehicle depending on the engine. All want a perky engine with a lot of torque behind it! I just hoping Honda will either turbo the 1.5L or get the 2.0L engine as an option for the extra pickup.


Depending on how it is package and with what options; it could steal sales away from other upscale brands too. But I do not expect it to since Honda American has to guard Acura brand. LOL!

I can see that happening.
It is indeed going to be a wide range of people.

Wide demographic appeal for the HR-V

I think this vehicle will have very wide appeal, from ages 20 to 70, because of very good gas mileage, attractive design, and the Honda reputation for reliability. I'm a 63 yr old single woman, and I want to replace my 1993 Honda Civic & 1987 Toyota Landcruiser with an HR-V, but ONLY if I can get one with a manual transmission. AWD would be great too.

Well if it is still running after 12 years, then it is pretty good quality.

it will appeal to a broad range of buyers .

in my case , our crv is a bit too big for our needs and the price slightly out of my comfort range .

if we can get into the awd hrv for around 375$ a month canadian (we enjoy leasing new every 4 years)it would be perfect price range .

my base crv lx awd is 419 / month canadian

Yeaaa! That's it!
Stand up for those of us with severe youth defficiency syndrome ... although the Missus is in her early 50s

Perfect lil' runabout for the snowbound... regardless of personal mileage.

Your post reminded me of when I bought my 2004 Scion xB. It was designed for the youth demographic, but it was so practical many older people such as myself, (50 at the time) were snatching them up.

Mid 20's professional, getting engaged soon and looking to the HRV for its space and fuel economy. Since I drive a civic currently and need a little more space at this point in life, the HRV is perfect. Plus I see the HRV as a perfect starter family vehicle.
