The electrification process of the Honda range in Europe also involved the new one HR-V. The SUV of the Japanese car manufacturer, proposed in a hybrid version, was recently put to the test in the dreaded moose test, in Spain, thanks to which it verified its stability during the execution of sharp turns. And the responses offered by the Japanese crossover have been without infamy and without praise: it certainly hasn’t excelled, but did not even disfigure how anyone could think considering the size of the model.
According to what reported by the Spanish magazine km.77, after hitting the first cone at the beginning of the test the new HR-V proved to have a good reactivity in changes of direction, without, among other things, that the driver and the other occupants of the car suffer excessively the backlash of the overhangs of the SUV, evident when looking at the slalom from the outside. In the end, the new Japanese crossover managed to finish the moose test at one top speed of 74 km / h: it took him several attempts before bringing home the result, it is true, but in the end he succeeded, moreover at a speed that was not very high but still respectable considering the SUV category to which it belongs. Compared to other crossovers, in fact, the new HR-V does not look bad: Dacia Sandero, for example, completed the moose test at a top speed of 73 km / h, while the Audi Q2 did better at 77 km / h.
We remember that to push the new Honda HR-V we think a hybrid powertrain, which includes a 1.5 liter i-VTEC DOHC petrol engine and an electric motor, for a total output of 129hp and 253Nm of maximum torque. Thanks to these specifications, the Japanese SUV is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km / h in 10.6 seconds. The Japanese company was also careful to pack the batteries inside the engine compartment or frame, to provide passengers with as much space as possible. And the handling of the car, as the moose test shows, was not affected that much.
