New to the forums, referred here by Redflag deals. Have test driven a few cars, including an HR-V. Just wondering about the pickup for merging into traffic. Had a 2000 Civic, which was great but underpowered with the 1.6L, especially with the AC on. Wondering if the 1.8 in the HR-V would be the same issue. Not speed demons by any means, but like to get to Highway speed in decent time and pass quickly when needed. Thanks.
