More thoughts on the Honda FR-V

Took a friend out in the FR-V today as I was interested to see how it would rate from a passenger’s perspective. His first observation was of a lack of legroom, not good from someone of no more than average height. Three people in the front seats would be very cosy, he suggested. Other irritations included a mystery draught at neck level and noise coming from the roller-blind cover over the luggage boot.

The lively performance and mechanical refinement were well received. Also praised were the build quality and the tasteful interior trim.

I’ve got a long journey in the Honda tomorrow; it will be interesting to see what that brings to light. There is also the matter of trying to take some more photographs – that was going to be a job for today but the weather was against me.
