The more I read about the HRV the less appealing it appears to be, the first time I first heard about this car was around 8 months ago, back then it was known as Vezel and sold in Japan and I loved the green Vezel with the brown interiors, i thought we were having a similar version in america, months passed by and more versions appeared in India, Australia, etc. All of them with really cool led headlights, sportier rims, better interiors and so on, by the time honda finally came up with an american version it seems so inferior to what we were seeing everywhere else, that was a real let down, however the idea of a smaller suv with better gas mileage and a sportier look still sounded promising. In the last coupe of weeks I have been looking at the HRV facs al least what they have put out there and the more I read the less interesting it looks, the only way this vehicle looks appealing to me now is if it comes with a very low price tag. If the HRV stars at 20k, 21k you are only 2k away of buying a CRV with around 40 more hp, a lot more space to carry stuff around and just 1 mile less per gallon, on the other hand If I want a sportier car I would go for the juke, it is smaller but packs 40 more hp and for 20k you get quite a lot of equipment that you only get in a higher version of the HRV. It appears to me that Honda does not understand that what they believe to be premium equipment is standard in other brands.
