Honda invited my blog to South Beach to test their all-new HR-V.
Kind’ve a big deal really, since that’s the same invite as the newspapers and magazines get #proud
Here’s your first look at their all-new vehicle:
the 2016 Honda HR-V Compact Crossover
Ran into a chunk of Team Autonet down there.
Top right middle is Frederic Mercier, the French side of the newspaper’s newest addition.
And bottom left is Eddie; if you prefer to read car reviews in Mandarin, read his.
Close as I ever make it to the beach #HideFromTheSunAlways
Here’s a good shot of the HR-V until I get a proper post built about it.
See those long vents in the dash on the right? Slick eh. As is the open cavern beneath the gear shift where all ports are, that’s good ergonomics.
My driving partner was my editor at the paper, Dan Barron.
You’ve met before, and any clever headline of anything I write is all him.
When you drive an HR-V, this is what happens to your head.
The driving impressions of this vehicle are embargoed until end of April, so until then, I’ll roll out more about the car, then tell you how it handled after that.
(what’s an embargo? Here)
Short review – this car is going to crush it.
Honda managed to design seemingly-opposite features and functions into one vehicle, and I predict this HR-V will take over the compact crossover segment when it arrives this summer 2015.
Now a plane photo so if you’re scrolling, you know I was out-of-country.
