  1. Seriously Honda, are you allergic to knobs and buttons? You're riding a fine line between sleek and safety. I don't have to take my eyes off the road to know exactly where and what my volume or fan knob or any other physical button feel like when I use them. This is impossible with capacitive controls! I love Star Trek TNG, too, but it doesn't mean you should make car controls like that of the Enterprise.  Also, does the back passenger door designer at Honda own a late 90s Nissan Pathfinder?

  2. really dislike CVT… i recent rented a 2014 Corolla for a week, the CVT was pretty good (waaaaay better than the 2011 #Nissan Rogue and 2014 Altima, both were shiet), but it was still not as good as traditional auto, IMO. and the fuel economy was a lot worse than i expected, although the AC were on most of the time.

  3. Well Consumer reports, you expect critical rear visibility considering that this is suppose to be a smaller CUV. also the door handle isn't that bad.. im not going to have my 2 yr old kid to open the door, but since the car isnt tall its ok

  4. Wow, look at the Mazda CX 3 in this side by side. The differences are stark. The Mazda is going to wipe the Honda clean

  5. Complaining about thick pillars is basically complaining about roll-over safety. Either you have thin pillars and terrible rollover ratings, or you have thick pillars with good rollover ratings. So what's your choice consumer reports? Safety or visability?

  6. Remember when Hondas selling point was "Honda, we keep it simple". Simple meant less distractions, therefore safer. I want a sunroof, but no touchscreen. Unfortunately we get older and it makes it difficult, to see. Why oh why the CVT, I have one now on my Nissan, and I hate it!
    Why the under power? Why not take what was in the ILX, 2.0 liter and the 5 speed auto instead. Honda keep it simple!

  7. Yet another Mexican made product flooding the market. Honda pays its exploited workers about $2.50 an hour and passes NONE of the savings on to the rapidly disappearing middle class. NAFTA disaster  is the prelude to the TPP catastrophe.

  8. Say what you want about the HR-V but I am certain that these will sell like iPhones. Probably go on to be the best selling in the segment like its older sibling, the CR-V.

  9. To be honest, it looks much more practical to buy the CRV even with the extra cash up front. A lot more value, space and similar mileage,better resale value as well.
    Too bad Honda, thought you'd had a winner but with a gutless motor and plebian underpinnings it looks like it may be a hard sell..

  10. Say all what you want. I like mine. I test drive a HRV on the first day, when it got to the dealer. Order a white one, came in the next day and traded in my 2015 yellow Fit EX. Don't regret it. I had several Honda's in my life time and this will be my last one at my old age. If you don't like touch screen, then look at the HRV LX or use the buttons on the steering wheels. Touch screen wasn't that hard to use. Like anything else, you have to get use to it. There are Pro's and Con's in every car.

  11. Tired of the not-fit-for vehicle comments. People who want this size, don't get a big rear window, don't get a big engine and can figure out you can use those touch controls once you are accustomed to them. Nothing here is relevant to the buyer that fits this vehicle. You are taking an apple to an orange fight.

  12. If you think rear door handle is too high for kids, then your kids must be like 1 foot long or something or you expect a 1 year old toddler to open a car door by himself?
