2015 Honda HR-V Overview

TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Honda HR-V

2015 Honda HR-V Reliability And Durability: Pros
2016 The 2016 Honda HR-V was very recently introduced, so we don't have any reliability information on it yet. But it's based on the Honda Fit, one of the most reliable models in our survey. Okay, the engine is shared with the Honda Civic--which is also very reliable. And not just for the first few years. The 2007 Fit and Civic, with a little over 100,000 miles on them, on average, have required only about as many repairs in the past year as the typical 2015 model, and about half as many as the typical 2007 model. We also don't have any reliability data for the Chevrolet Trax, but what we do have for the closely related Buick Encore suggests that it'll also be very reliable, at least in the near term. Long-term reliability for the Trax is much more an unknown. full 2016 Honda HR-V review

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Honda HR-V

2015 Honda HR-V Gas Mileage: Pros
2016 With EPA ratings of 28 mpg city and 35 mpg highway, the front-wheel-drive Honda HR-V nearly leads the class in fuel economy; that honor goes to the Mazda CX-3, with 29/35. Add all-wheel drive and they tie with 27/32. The Trax trails by a 2-3 mpg in the city and a single mpg on the highway. In my real-world driving, though, the Chevrolet's trip computer reported better numbers than the Honda's. Was it accurate? I don't know. But if it was, the Trax was a little more efficient in my suburban driving, 37 mpg vs. 35 mpg, and considerably more efficient in my highway driving, 40 vs. 34 mpg. Granted, that the tested Trax lacked all-wheel drive could explain the observed difference in suburban mpg, if not the larger one in highway mpg. It should also be noted that the Trax's fuel efficiency is more dependent on driving style. Employ a heavy foot, and the tiny four's turbo will shove far more fuel-air mixture into the cylinders. Since the EPA figures aren't terribly far apart and the trips computers cast some doubt on their accuracy, I've judged this category a tie. Drive either CUV casually, and you'll enjoy fuel economy well beyond the reach of most cars. full 2016 Honda HR-V review
