Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Honda HR-V hatchback?
Honda HR-Vs are generally bought by careful owners and are often found in great condition, so don’t be afraid to walk away from an example that’s tatty. Check for scrapes and dents, and have a good look at the alloy wheels for grazes; light ones are probably OK, but anything that suggests a heavy impact might mean there’s been damage to the suspension that you can’t see.
Inside, check all the electrics work, including all the touchscreen functions. Also, double-check the rear-seat area for scuffs caused by children’s shoes or broken plastics; there shouldn’t really be any.
