New '16 LX AWD Owner from Surrey, BC
I was glad to come across this forum when checking out the HR-V! I'm now an owner of a Steel Metallic '16 LX AWD! Previously had an '06 Civic LX Coupe which I loved. After 10 years of reliability and getting me around as far south as LA and as far north as Prince George, it was time to see what else Honda could offer. Wasn't stoked on a CR-V cuz its too big for my needs, and although the new Civics are gorgeous I wanted to try something different.
Then boom, HR-V, sitting in the showroom. I was just drawn to the coupe-like design with the hidden rear door handles, and how much of the front end maintains that classic Honda look. After driving it for 2 weeks in snow (which we haven't gotten in 3 years), I have to say I am very pleased with how it handles. My wife loves the heated seats, and how classy the interior looks and feels.
Don't see this car on the road though, so hoping that more show up in my area! This is a great car and I'd like to see how people customize it to their tastes and needs, much like the civicnation.
Here's a pic of my HR-V, fresh from pickup and after driving home in the snow!
