Great auto

Perfect size for 70 year old woman. My only suggestion would be automatic back door hatch. Car drives great. Presently leasing thinking of purchase it when lease is up.

First new car and not a disappointment

This car looks sporty on the outside but is fairly spacious for a small SUV. It’s around the same interior size as the old CR-Vs which I drove for 10 years prior. My only complaint is the lack of cup holders for the driver and passenger. Otherwise it is a great medium car.

Love my Honda

I’ve only had this car for a little over a week now and it did take some getting use to being it’s smaller than the CR-V but I do like it and it handles well.
