To stay on topic, I'm 44, single guy, currently drive a 2005 prius, considering HRV, crosstrek, next-gen prius (which doesn't exist yet). Also concerned about HRV's ground clearance on rough roads, compared to crosstrek.
I prefer that my dogs ride in crates. I had two crates side by side against the front seats in my Fit and it left room in the back and on top of the crates for "stuff". They were kind of small for my 75 pound Lab but were ok. Now with the HRV I can load in two larger, more comfy crates and more room for "stuff". I compared the space with a friend with a Prius yesterday and it looked like the floor space was similar, however, with the HRV's lower floor I had way more space than hers. I'd post a pic but I seem challenged trying to upload a pic from my iPad. Now, if they were to ride loose there really is plenty of room for them in the cargo area even if the back seats are up. Very roomy cargo area.

As far as the ground clearance, I don't do much off road but I have followed my friends' big SUVs into tracking fields with my Fit with no problem. That means the HRV is going to be even less likely to drag.

I'm in the same boat with you, though instead of 2 medium dogs I'm considering 1 big dog.

If they can fit in a Prisu, they'll do just fine in a HR-V, with the seats down it'll have no problem handling all but the very largest of dogs. I think Newfoundland size will if in the HR-V, much bigger than that and you might be crammed.

Make sure you carefully look at the ground clearance of the HR-V (get down on the ground and really look under it), it's not nearly as high I thought it was going to be. It's totally fine for "all weather", but I'm not all the confident about it's performance on a rutted/bumpy dirt road. Offroad I think is out of the question, but gravel or maintained dirt roads it'll be fine.

Hi Cheryl......just curious if you felt the back is staying cool enough with the a/c running, since there is no air vent to the rear. This is one of my major concerns for the HR-V. I also do competitive obedience....right now have 78 OTCH points with my Golden.

Do you have fabric crates in the back or wire ones?

Thanks! Kim

Got it with the graduate program... I walked last week. No co-signer, all on my own. Quite an accomplishment in my book.
