The original HR-V was labelled the Joy Machine by Honda’s marketing bods back in the early 2000s. It was meant to appeal to young buyers with its “unique” styling and and blend the practical benefits of an SUV with a compact form. It was ahead of its time in many ways but was abandoned in 2006 amid mediocre sales. Wind on to 2015 and the world was ready for compact crossovers and the HR-V was reborn as a more conventional-looking entrant into the market. Honda HR-V Sport Price: £27,595 Jump ahead four more years and the HR-V has had some mild titivation with a new grille, bumper, wheels and lights but has also had a more major change in the oily bits with the addition of a 180bhp turbo engine to this Sport model. The HR-V falls into that subset of crossovers that are bigger than the Juke, Ecosport and Captur but smaller than the Qashqai, Kuga and Kadjar. It’s up against the likes of the Mazda CX-3 and Toyota C-HR. In this Sport guise, it also needs to … [Read more...] about Honda HR-V Sport review

Over its long history, Honda's CR-V has quietly become the world's best-selling SUV and this latest version doesn't look all that different to its predecessor, but it's still a big improvement. And it's perfect timing for a car like this to maintain its crown at the top of the SUV tree, as the nation seems to want nothing other than a jacked-up mud-plugger as their family workhorse. As diverse as its talents are, most CRVs will inevitably end up on the school run, the office commute or possibly, in rare cases, crossing grassy fields at a point-to-point or towing a caravan to Norfolk. So what's new? Well, to start off it has a stiffer chassis, so it handles a bit better than the predecessor and, although the newcomer is the same length as the car it replaces, the wheelbase is stretched so there's 50mm more legroom in the back. There's also a range of technology improvements to make it more clever and more user-friendly and safety has been turned up a few notches. But the big news is the … [Read more...] about Review: Why is the Honda CR-V one of the world’s best-selling SUV’s?

COLEEN Rooney has been snapped driving a brand new £53,000 Audi – days after The Sun revealed that her old Honda had been badly damaged. The 32-year-old mum-of-four was pictured in a sparkling Q7 model following a prang in her battered previous motor. Pictures obtained by The Sun showed a large dent down the right-hand side of the grey 4x4. Coleen did not suffer any injuries and later said on Twitter: “Thank you for the messages asking if I am ok. The car was damaged by another car.” A source told The Sun last week: “Luckily Coleen escaped without a scrape on her but the motor was a mess. One side of the car was completely caved in.” Coleen later made light of the crash with pals and told them she was secretly pleased she could get a new motor, after admitting she hated the “cheap” Honda CRV she’d been driving. Coleen was spotted driving around her local town in Bethesda, Maryland, on the weekend in the sleek new Audi, which still … [Read more...] about Coleen Rooney drives brand new £53k Audi days after £21k Honda was ‘written off’ by another car

In a reflection of this, Honda recently announced it would be dropping the diesel CR-V from its range, leaving just a petrol version and this, the new CR-V Hybrid. The manufacturer claims it should return the same economy as the recently ditched model, while improving low-speed emissions thanks to the introduction of those electric motors. We headed to Seville to see if this latest CR-V really can take the place of the well-rounded diesel version.
