IS Honda HR-V's 141hp engine is concern

Asked by Apr 01, 2016 at 07:50 PM about the 2016 Honda HR-V EX

Question type: General

Hi All,
This is the first car I am buying in my life. And this will be the first car i will
be driving regularly. I liked all the features of Honda HR-V and almost
decided to buy HR-V Ex FWD. But one comments from every other review
bothering me is the HP. HR-V has 141 hp and most of the reviews say the
acceleration/pick up is not good because of this. Is this really true? Does it
make much difference?Should i be really worried with this? I will be mostly
driving in free ways and in cities. Pleae

A 141 ponies is fairly low, but as it is built on the Honda Fit format it should suffice. Go to : http://www.motortrend.com/news/2016- honda-hr-v-first-drive/

Also go test drive the car as well as others in it's class and see if has enough for what you want. Bring a friend to add weight as you probably will be with someone in the car.

I've been driving the HR-V for over a year. I really like it in the city, 29mpg! It's fun to drive. It may not be very powerful, but it's got a little pep. At freeway speed it does well. The CVT engine takes getting used to, but you might like it. The car has all the tech and the touchscreen is cool.
