I'm pretty sure that Red is speaking about himself, so I don't think he can really be wrong about that...
I think this will be appealing to younger folks. Mid-20s to mid 30s. Works well for small families.
Families is the key term here. Mid-20-30's single individuals or no kids couples are not likely to choose HR-V. Single/No Kids you have more disposable income so you may be lured to something more upscale and your space concerns are negligible compared to a growing family.
You make it sound as though the man will buy it for his wife, as if the woman can't buy the car for herself.
Where in gods name is that indicated? Not sure if you're married but that's how a marriage works bud, things are done together. With my wife she approves the short list, I do the research and we decide together...
Maybe he will buy it for his wife? Good god imagine the injustice, is it also offensive when a man holds a door open for a women or offers her his seat on the subway? I said thank you to the girl who poured my coffee this morning, rude as it is I even smiled!
I am a 70 year old single. The HR-V is appealing to me because it is easy to park, it should be safe on snow and ice, it is easy to get in and out of, it gives a good view of the road, and, hopefully, it would have Honda legendary reliability.
