The Top Gear car review:Honda HR-V
On the inside
Layout, finish and space
It’s a pretty sophisticated thing inside. The dash layout on SE trim and above includes a 7-inch touchscreen (it’s a bit laggy, but easy to navigate around), plus there’s a touch sensitive heating pane and clear instrumentation. It’s all rather dark, but the quality and layout are more upmarket than anything else in this class.
And the packaging is something else. Rear space is positively generous, the 453-litre boot is well above average and it has borrowed Honda’s Magic Seating from the Jazz. It might have a coupe’s roofline, but it’s genuinely practical.
