Why purchase a 2016 Honda HR-V?
We’re going to look at the two most important reasons to consider purchasing a 2016 Honda HR-V, in terms of what specs & features the subcompact crossover offers. The first has to do with a certain specification, fuel efficiency to be exact. Did you know that the HR-V was voted Green SUV of the Year by the Green Car Journal? It competed against hybrid and EV vehicles yet still came out on top as the greenest of them all, thanks to its 6.7 l/100km highway and 8.3 l/100km through the city.
The other aspect we’d like to bring attention to has to do with some features available in the vehicle – safety features to be more precise. Honda is quickly becoming known for its prowess in delivering safe vehicles packed with even more safety features. The 2016 HR-V is one of those vehicles, as it is overflowing with outstanding safety features from regular passive things like SmartVent Front Side Airbags and a LATCH system, to the newer, more exciting driver-assistive features that make up Honda Sensing.
If you’re considering a 2016 Honda HR-V, you should know that you’re getting one of the safest and most efficient crossovers on the market. It just so happens to also offer other impressive specs & features as well, making it the total package.
