Agreed, the new Taos has an interior that looks very upscale compared to the HRV (well to be fair, at this point what doesn't?). No doubt it's going to cost more than the HRV the way it's been loaded with the all-digital dash and all that soft touch materials, but it's nice to have more options in this segmen.
The HR-V for 2022 has a new competitor - the VW Taos - which will be available in June, 2021. Looks good, IMO.
I traded up from my 2018 Civic because I grew tired of people asking me "Do you need help? when I was exiting the car.Styling wise the Type R Civic looks like fire damaged Lego. Practicality wise, it's just too low to the ground.
I tried one (just the SE) before settling on the HR-V, and I just could not get in or out without having to put my hand on the ground to help getting in or out. I'll readily admit to being a bit of a Lard Arse (obviously not to LHD standards) but the Civic would appear to be aimed purely at the below average height double jointed acrobat demograph.
I despise the black on black controls in all electronic / mechanical devices. I look for add on covers for controls wherever possible.I noticed that the European models offer more interior color treatments. In the USA - everything is BLACK.
I am getting tired of everything black.

As stated in an earlier post, the Jazz(Fit) eHEV using the same 1.5 na petrol was getting around 60mpg Imp (49.9mpg US) in various roadtests.
Considering the CRV gets 40 mpg city, I"ll bet the HR-V hybrid will be even higher!
