What's the used Honda HR-V hatchback like?

Its looks say off-roader, but the Honda HR-V is actually much more at home on Tarmac, because the full-time four-wheel-drive system that's fitted to most versions can cope with a little light mud, but nothing more.

In reality, then, the HR-V is more of a jacked-up family hatchback, and quite a good one at that. Its steering is sharp, angling the car keenly into corners, and the car takes bends with confidence.
