Families is the key term here. Mid-20-30's single individuals or no kids couples are not likely to choose HR-V. Single/No Kids you have more disposable income so you may be lured to something more upscale and your space concerns are negligible compared to a growing family.I'm pretty sure that Red is speaking about himself, so I don't think he can really be wrong about that...
I think this will be appealing to younger folks. Mid-20s to mid 30s. Works well for small families.
Where in gods name is that indicated? Not sure if you're married but that's how a marriage works bud, things are done together. With my wife she approves the short list, I do the research and we decide together...You make it sound as though the man will buy it for his wife, as if the woman can't buy the car for herself.
I can see that happening.I think because of the small size and economy of the HR-V; it will appeal to vast demographics. From teenagers(18 and over) to small business owners. I think the retirement crowd will buy it for a runaround town vehicle depending on the engine. All want a perky engine with a lot of torque behind it! I just hoping Honda will either turbo the 1.5L or get the 2.0L engine as an option for the extra pickup.
Depending on how it is package and with what options; it could steal sales away from other upscale brands too. But I do not expect it to since Honda American has to guard Acura brand. LOL!
Yeaaa! That's it!I am a 70 year old single. The HR-V is appealing to me because it is easy to park, it should be safe on snow and ice, it is easy to get in and out of, it gives a good view of the road, and, hopefully, it would have Honda legendary reliability.
Your post reminded me of when I bought my 2004 Scion xB. It was designed for the youth demographic, but it was so practical many older people such as myself, (50 at the time) were snatching them up.Yeaaa! That's it!
Stand up for those of us with severe youth defficiency syndrome ... although the Missus is in her early 50s
Perfect lil' runabout for the snowbound... regardless of personal mileage.
