Yep, I'm holding out to see it for real also. Have my concerns about the practicality of the boot and the size of the opening. I'm sure it will all be fine but would rather wait and see. I am in no hurry.

Like you I'm in no hurry, present car is Skoda Yeti SEL DSG bought in Spring 2017 to replace a 2012 Yeti. Yeti's a great car but Karoq a bit too big and Kamiq seating is too low - hence our looking at the HR-V. I like Honda's from past experience.
I will wait to try an HR-V on a long test drive

To reply to both of you...........
The size of the boot opening is pretty big (can be seen on nearly every video review on YouTube Size depends on what you want to carry.  I think it will take a 26Kg Lurcher if it's dogs you are thinking of. Claimed 335L.
Seat height.......
Fully up the driver's seat is slightly higher than that of my Karoq.

The HR-V is very nearly as long as the Karoq. The overall sizes are comparable.
HONDA HR-V e:HEV
Length (mm)   4340 mm
Width (mm)   1790 mm
Overall Width (mm) with Door Mirror Folded   1866 mm
Width including Door Mirror   2028 mm
Height - Unladen (mm)   1582 mm
SKODA KAROQ
Length 4382 mm
Width  1,841 mm1
Height 1,607 mm
Hope this all helps.

According to press boot volume is 319 litres, that is not much bigger than the Crosstar at 309 litres and smaller than most of its competitors. However, real test is how many carry -on size bags fit in and how much space left over for soft bags etc. Shape is as important as size in reality.
Thanks for info on length compared with Karoq, really not much shorter so will have to wait and see the HR-V in the metal and see how it looks. I thought a Hybrid would be a good half way move before going full EV, not convinced of charging structure and practicality of long journeys to remoter areas of the west country.
Height of passenger seat could be make or break!

Boot space will likely suffer when you're carrying a fuel tank and battery pack. I suspect a fair amount of competition sizes are not comparing apples with apples ?
Let's be careful out there!

Expatman,
When I saw it in the dealer I was surprised at the size of the boot. I think the litres are down due to the sloping roof line.
The actual area of the boot floor struck me as being not far off that of the Karoq which, officially is over 400L.

Fuel tank is under the front seats.

Thanks - I am a bit wary of quoted “litres” because in many instances the shape of the boot defines how many bags etc. can be stowed. I remember having a car many years ago that had a multi litre boot but it was so shallow that it was impossible to carry much in it at all.
Some of the road testers check how many carry on type bags a boot will hold but I haven’t seen any of those yet on YouTube.

He measures it from 6mins 55secs.
There are loads of videos on YouTube showing suitcases and bikes. Just have a hunt.

Thanks - I think I have watched almost every one of the videos which are useful but not comprehensive, OSV and Autobears are ones I usually look at but not tested the HR-V yet. Plenty of time before I decide so will check new reviews as they appear.
