Hard to believe with the long wait, but we only have a couple more weeks to go until the HRV will be hitting dealerships.

What are the top 3 reasons you plan to buy the HRV?

For me, it's the following in no particular order:

1. Styling (coupe like)
2. Drivability/Maneuverability
3. Low ownership costs (depreciation, gas mileage, etc)

  • My shopping list only includes vehicles with a manual transmission
  • It is a crossover available with a manual transmission
  • It is a reliable offering from a reputable manufacturer available in medium trim level, with options, and a manual transmission

1. Utility and ride height of a crossover
2. Smaller and more car-like than a typical crossover
3. Less expensive than a typical crossover

Truthfully I like the Crosstrek a bit more. But I'm hoping that a loaded HRV will be cheaper than a loaded Crosstrek, which would make the HRV win out for me.

Pretty much the same top 3 for me! As well as the fact that Honda are always reliable cars and easy to work on if something happens.

Similar to Bicepeak:
1. Size and utility... really want a hatch, not a big SUV
2. Manual transmission
3. Features: sunroof, infotainment and phone link, backup and lanewatch cams, upscale-ish interior

Plus some Honda brand loyalty / respect.

Oops... that's 4!

lol...I had a hard time keeping it at 3 too. That's why I kind of squished a lot into #1 . :)

Good to hear! :D

No brand is a sure thing as I have had friends had various problems with their Accord and Civic, but in general, they tend to be better than most.

I am in the same situation as it all comes down to the HRV and Crosstrek. Cannot go wrong with either.

Utility (Magic Seats, high rider, AWD option), economy (Gas mileage and the EX model gives a lot of SUV for the price), reliability (Honda--say no more).

Of course, there's so much more: Seems like a larger car than its classification; smooth engine; fun to drive; looks....
