Honda ZR-V

With Honda's next-gen CR-V set to creep up in size the Japanese maker needs a new SUV model fill the gap between it and the smaller HR-V.

Enter the ZR-V, an all-new model aimed squarely at Mazda's evergreen CX-5 with hybrid options designed to lift the brand back into the semi-premium territory it occupied in the 1990s.

The line-up currently starts at $40,200 for the ZR-V VTI X and ranges through to $54,900 for the range-topping ZR-V E:hev LX.

Honda ZR-V Interior

Though about half a size smaller than larger medium SUVs like the Nissan X-Trail, the ZR-V remains a roomy and practical crossover that's large enough for most people needing a family runabout.

The front part of the cabin is understated and classy, with premium finishes and lots of nice detailing. The seats are very comfy, the elegant instruments are digital but look analogue, and the ergonomics are second-to-none. Storage is reasonable but not great, and vision out is hampered by a rising window line and sloping rear part of the roof.

The back seat is as well presented as the front part of the car, though it is a bit dark and gloomy with all the dark materials utilised. The seats themselves do a fine job seating three comfortably, while USB ports, cupholders, an armrest and air vents are also provided.
