Nice review.
Reason #2 You could have a party for 5 inside it…
With its slightly elevated driving position and excellent ergonomics, the HR-V is one extremely comfortable SUV to be in. You don’t really feel like you’re driving an SUV actually – hence why I consider it more a Crossover – because the HR-V drives like a car. A commanding all-round view of the outside notwithstanding (quite a feat considering the tapered rear end), it’s the relaxed and fuss-free driving-feel that’s going to win the hearts of its owners. NVH during normal driving is top-notch, and apart from tyre-noise, there’s little which permeates the cabin. Despite not having a rear air-con blower, passengers in the back were able to feel the cooling effect of the a/c, thanks to the five vents up front.
There’s also an insurmountable amount of space in the back, especially when the rear seats are folded flat and the foldable tonneau-cover stowed. Fans of IKEA are going to love the useable cargo carrying capacity of the HR-V, which swallows up pretty much anything you can throw into it, within reason of course.

This isn't the case on the US version, is it? Aren't there climate control ducts for the back seat?

The NA model lists
• Rear heater ducts

No reason I know of why the heater ducts wouldn't also carry AC, but good question.

There might be some ducts under the front seats that would hit the backseat passengers feet, but there's no ducts that are visible / up higher.

As there isn't dual-zone AC listed on the spec sheet I seriously doubt there are AC vents in the rear of the North AM HR-V. I'd like to be wrong though!

I think dual-zone climate applies to Driver / Passenger; that's certainly true in any cars I've been in that have it, though maybe SUVs have front / back zones?

Dual-zone is on the Canadian spec EX/EXL.
