The Top Gear car review:Honda HR-V
Running costs and reliability
Honda has an enviable reputation in this area. Its cars are more desirable than most rivals and the engineering quality that goes into them is unmatched. Reliability is absolutely without doubt and we fully expect this car to jump to the top of ownership satisfaction surveys in years to come.
This means residuals hold up, and running costs are low – witness the claimed 70.6mpg figure for the diesel – you’ll get over 50mpg all day long. The petrol isn’t as good but remember, it’s still decent, and cheaper up front.
