Unfortunately I had to rule out jazz/crosstar after driving on a motorway with velocities around 120km/h (limit 130km/h). Too much bothersome noise from the engine. And when comparing available parameters between HR-V and Jazz I'm afraid it'll be same with the bigger car. I run 1/3 of my driving on a motorway.

Would like to buy Honda but will have to turn to Toyota CH-R probably which has a stronger engine.
I'm surprised that engine noise is the issue at those speeds.  I would have thought wind and tyre noise would have been more prevalent.

I have to agree. I have a MK1 Jazz but even at 80 mph the tyre and wind noise drowns out my engine. Once I am above 30 mph the engine is the least of my noise concerns.

Under hard acceleration the engine can rev furiously with the CVT box but, in my Mk3, once you've achieved cruising speed, the revs drop right back (2500 ish at 70). This makes for a relaxed cruise and I agree that the main issue then is road and wind noise.

I see there is no height adjustment for the passenger seat on any of the models.  Will wait to see what it is like in the flesh but could be a deal breaker for me (or I should say, my wife).

No, it probably can't climb trees...

The Puma used to be a great little Fiesta-based coupe. Now it's a small crossover. Is nothing sacred anymore?

If Ford ever make a BMW X4-style coupe/crossover and call it...Kapri...then I'll be really worried.

Have you seen what they have done to the Mustang?

HR-V has height adjustable seats for both driver and passenger.

Are you sure?  I have them on my model but I didn't think the latest one had a passenger seat height adjustment.

Hmmm, not positive so have emailed Honda (UK) and asked them. Not too confident they'll know however.

Agreed 100%. The original Puma was such a brilliant car. Had a fantastic TV ad with McQueen

They get good reviews, and being a Ford will be a good steer for sure. But from the front? Ford dropped the ball on that one.



The HRV has it beat on that front imho.

Answer from Honda - new HR-V does NOT have passenger seat height adjustment.  That is a real disappointment and could well be a deal breaker for me as my wife needs an elevated seating position because of back problem. HR-V must be the only mid size crossover without passenger seat height adjustment. For the life of me I canít understand why it is not included.

Expatman,
Don't panic about your wife and the passenger seat. When I sat in the open evening HR-V I put the driver's seat right up to the top and it was higher than my Karoq seat.
I obviously have no idea about how tall your wife is, but the chances are that the passenger seat, which presumably will be set around mid way to the driver's, would be plenty high enough for 6ft me with a very bad back.
So don't rule it out 'til she's had the chance to try it.

Thanks for your personal experience, we will wait till we try the seat on a demonstrator.
£30,000 for a car without passenger seat height adjustment is a bit rich though!!
