The new HR-V comes with two punchy engine choices: a responsive 129bhp 1.5 litre petrol or an extra efficient 118bhp 1.6 litre diesel – returning up to 71mpg.
And with Honda's Earth Dreams Technology, Idle Stop and the Honda ECON function, you can get plenty more miles for your money.
Top choice transmissions
The HR-V is front-wheel drive, available with either a newly-engineered six-speed manual gearbox or an automatic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission). All in all, it’s one of the cheapest cars to run of its kind.
