Auto Express - - Winter Driving Special -

HERE’S a crossover that de­fines the cur­rent trend for mod­ern SUVS. The HR-V mixes a name from Honda’s past with tech from ex­ist­ing mod­els such as the CR-V and Civic, and dresses it up in a com­pact pack­age with chunky SUV styling..

But the car is de­signed for show rather than go, so while there’s a raised ride height and tall driv­ing po­si­tion, buy­ers don’t get any 4WD run­ning gear, and the HR-V will be at its best on the tar­mac.

Price range: £19,320-£26,860 Our pick: 1.6 I-DTEC SE Navi (£23,855) En­gine: 1.6-litre 4cyl diesel, 118bhp Trans­mis­sion: 6-spd man, front-wheel drive Top speed: 119mph Econ­omy: 68.9mpg CO2: 108g/km
