I test drove the 2018 HRV automatic and the seat was horribly uncomfortable. It didn’t give me the support I need for my back and seemed to be made of cheap materials. Is the 2019 expected to have an improved seat, in both materials and support?
Do you know what the exterior dimensions will be? (Width and length). I have a very limited space in my garage, so it could be a a deal breaker, if too big. The 2018 HRV gots easily.
The revisit of the upcoming HRV should not affect the sizes of the current model, so you can expect to see the next vehicle with the same dimensions as before.
