Honda Laura here! And guess what? I brought the summer weather with me! You can thank me later. I recently visited Bristol, RI, where I test drove the new Honda 2016 HR-V LX and I am so excited to share my review with you all. Special thanks as always goes to Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk. You will be pleasantly surprised with the features that come standard with the 2016 Honda HR-V LX base model. Honda was very thoughtful when building this car! See for yourself as you watch my YouTube video for all the highlights.

I am going to be honest for a moment. I was a bit concerned with 2016 Honda HR-V LX having only a 1.8 liter engine, but I was pleasantly surprised with how “peppy” it was! I loved it! Since it shares the same chassis as the Honda Fit, I was also surprised to find out how much cargo space this vehicle has: 23.2 cubic feet/57.6 cubic feet, which corresponds directly to the seats being up or down.
The new HR-V is worth a test- drive, it surprised me in many ways! What are you surprised to learn about this car? Comment below and let me know!
