Looking at the Honda websites, and here on the forum as well, I think there are a few 'sneaky' features that aren't being touted that are going to be pretty awesome in a car in this price range. One is the Brake Hold shown at 8:10 in the Indonesian video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=gNWFpzsKe_0). I've seen this in action on the GLA ($33K+), and it's pretty cool. I don't recall any other Hondas having it either.

A second is the Lane Watch feature. You can see the camera on the passenger side mirror on the US website in the 360 view (http://automobiles.honda.com/hr-v/#styling).

The final one I can think of are the paddle shifters. For those concerned about performance, maybe this is the one hope for something with a bit more zip to it.

Any others you like or think I've missed?

Lane Watch is great, my mom has it on her Accord. She likes it double because when she turns right, it pops on to show her the inside of the turn. You can get it to stay on full time as well...

It's not a video, but this shows the various colors.

I can't remember where, but I also looked up if it was possible to turn off the ring from turning green when in Eco mode / driving more efficiently, and that is possible. I could see that getting annoying having the color change while you're driving.

That is interesting.
I am thinking that may not have been carried over from the Vezel. At least I don't know where you change it. Also, the display has been redesigned for the HVR and much improved, too. It now displays everything in round gauges. (cool)

Well, it's shown in the Indonesian promo video at 1:43 and their HR-V has the circular instruments that the NA version will get. Of course who knows if it's coming or not, but it would be nice.
