There's a reason the Honda HR-V is the world's favourite small SUV. Here are 5 things you'll love about this car, according to the experts.
A free-spinning four-cylinder engine with a 9000rpm redline and a specific power output – 88kW per litre – greater than any normally aspirated engine in the world at the time. A slick-shifting, short-throw six-speed manual gearbox. A low centre of gravity, in-wheel double-wishbone suspension front and rear, and perfect 50:50 front/rear weight distribution.
The Civic Type R recently broke with tradition by using a turbocharged engine but Honda’s engineers made sure it was every bit as responsive as its predecessors.
