  1. Too expensive for a subcompact CUV. And still no BSM, RCTA or rear autonomous braking nor 360° camera. Might as well get the base model CR-V at this level.

    1. People are still gonna buy this one over the Honda Civic and ancient Honda CR-V..There's a shortage of HR-V units in the local market
      Honda Cars Philippines only included the important ADAS safety features in the local spec HR-V
