Reviews of the Honda HR-V have been generally positive, but I am getting some conflicting messages about one aspect of the crossover -- its back seat head room.
Some reviews that I read for the Honda HR-V say that the Honda HR-V is the most spacious vehicle in its class.
Car Connection says:
This all sounds great, and I do believe that as far as leg room goes, the HR-V probably is top notch. What I am more concerned about is the back seat head room.Front-seat comfort is great, but it really shines in the back seat, where adults have plentiful head and leg room. The HR-V also sports the Honda "Magic Seat," which folds and flips the second-row seat like a lawn chair if need be, all in the name of freeing up multiple storage and seating configurations. Behind the front seats, Honda says the HR-V has 58.8 cubic feet of storage space, or 24.3 cubic feet behind the second-row seat--but with the Magic Seat, it's far more flexible than any of its rivals.
The Honda HR-V has a coupe style sloping roof. This sloping roof combines with the invisible rear doors to make for a very sporty look. That sloping roofline should also take away some of the head room for the HR-V's taller back seat passengers.
So I am curious what people's personal experiences with the HR-V are. If you are tall, could you fit comfortably in the back seat?While it looked great, the sloping roof design also means that the back passenger will now have to deal with the low roofline of the car. Honda did try to make it better by giving the passengers for legroom by reducing the size of the storage space.
