Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The MG ZS EV offers a lot for the money in the electric car world, with good interior space, a big boot and plenty of standard equipment. The thing to remember, though, is that more expensive electric cars, such as the Nissan Leaf and Kia e-Niro, are generally better to drive and, thanks to better resale values, might not cost you that much more in the long run.

Pros
Lot of room for passengers
Big boot
Well equipped

Cos
Poor predicted resale values
Limited steering wheel adjustment
Not that comfortable or good to drive

Practical

Cos
Cheap interior feel
Wallowy handling
No companion app

By: 
carbuyer.co.uk

PROS
Low list price and good finance options
Usable electric range and performance
Seven-year warranty, five-star safety rating
Practicality unaffected by EV conversion

CONS
Less range than key rivals

Low-rent interior

The HR-V returns unchanged for the 2020 model year.

Pros
Average-size adults fit comfortably in the front and back
Clever cargo solutions make it more versatile than rivals
Better than most competitors on fuel economy
Excellent outward visibility

Cons
Unimpressive power output results in lackluster acceleration
Palpable engine noise and vibration
Touchscreen interface is difficult to use
Cabin materials look a little cheaper than those in some rivals

The 2020 Honda HR-V oozes with practicality, though gas mileage and safety equipment have room to improve.

Pros
Brilliant interior flexibility
Good value even at top trim
Tidy interior
Rides well

Cons
Slow acceleration
A few too many details
Emergency braking only on EX and above
Pricey Touring trim

By:

Honda made some superficial and mechanical changes to the HR-V for the previous model year, but it doesn't make any significant updates to the 2020 lineup.

Pros
Impressive fuel economy,
outstanding cargo storage,
durable and well-built interior.

Cons
Buzzy engine sounds,
choppy ride on rough roads,
top features reserved for top model.
