Our last official stop—there’s more to this later—is Honda BGC to check out Honda’s SUV trio: the HR-V, the CR-V, and the BR-V. Jen immediately dislikes how the BR-V looks, while AJ doesn’t want to consider the CR-V because a new one is rumored to be coming in a couple of months. So, the HR-V appears perfect: the right size and the right price, with good space and an impressive powertrain. Jen, who rarely drives in Manila, also finds comfort in the subcompact crossover’s dimensions. It seems we have a clear winner— or do we?
