The front did not look that bad, had the same concern when I saw the pics. The new HRV is low, not much ground clearance compared to the CRV, maybe close to the old HRV. The interior is huge compared to the old model, instruments are clean. This SPORT model is labeled as a Program car so cannot be sold for 60 days so customers can see the car and test drive. I'm sure Honda knows that you need vehicles for people to touch and drive at the dealerships.
