The awards, now in their fourth year, bring the teams from carsales.com and motoring.com.au together to test vehicles in the real environment awarding only the best new cars on sale today.
“The HR-V is one vehicle that performs extremely well in the real world. It confronts new-car buyers with the proposition that a super-compact SUV might be a better answer than a regular, conventional hatchback. It’s the best new Honda in a decade,” said motoring.com.au and carsales.com Ltd Editor-in-Chief, Mr. Mike Sinclair.
The HR-V launched locally in February and has fast established itself as a key player in the competitive small SUV segment.
“I am delighted the HR-V has been recognised as one of the best SUVs in the country. It is further validation that the HR-V is now firmly on the shopping list of customers looking for an attractive, fun-to-drive and well-priced small SUV,” said Honda Australia Director, Mr. Stephen Collins.
The HR-V’s edgy and dynamic styling is complimented by a sophisticated, spacious and sleek interior with luxurious appointments. It has sedan-like steering for easy manoeuvrability, spirited dynamic performance and a low centre of gravity for superior road holding.
It’s also feature-packed, with Honda’s state-of-the-art Display Audio system with Bluetooth compatibility (Apple and Android), audio streaming and compatible Apple iPhone mirroring functionality, wide-angle reversing camera with three modes and dynamic guidelines viewed on the seven-inch touch screen, Electric Parking Brake as standard, LaneWatch blind spot monitoring (VTi-S and above) and City Brake-Active system (VTi-S and above), Forward Collision Warning (VTi-L ADAS) and High-Beam Support System (VTi-L ADAS).
