I wonder what the trim levels are going to be like for HR-V. I know that in Japan the top trim level is baked into the Hybrid, so I'm wondering if we will have to wait for a similar top trim level for the HR-V or if because we won't have the hybrid powertrain Honda may just add that to engine choices later on?
However, when it comes to the gas-powered model's interior, only available in dark gray, it just feels rather ordinary when compared to the hybrid model's luxuriously textured jazz brown interior and specially colored LCD dashboard and shifters.
However, on the whole, the ride never feels especially clean or refreshing, and is a bit noisy. This is because the Eco Special tires' road noise and the exhaust sounds creep in through the rear cabin, due to the lack of the tonneau cover and luggage room hardboard that the hybrid model's premium interior are equipped with.
