Most of you are probably already familiar with the Honda Fit, the five-door subcompact that’s available nationwide with a puny, 1.5-liter four-pot under the hood. What you might not be aware of is that the automaker also builds a crossover on the same underpinnings. It’s dubbed the Vezel and has been offered in Japan since December 2013. No biggie though, because you’ll get to see it in person starting 2015, when Honda brings it to America under the HR-V name. The new vehicle slots right below the popular CR-V and will be manufactured in Mexico before being shipped to U.S. showrooms.

The HR-V just made its debut at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show to reveal that it has very little in common with the Fit as far as design goes, bearing a styling of its own that includes a few trademark cues seen on the larger CR-V. The HR-V is quite the spacious and practical vehicle thanks to its unique center tank layout and the Magic Seat system it comes with. The HR-V also gets a larger engine, ditching the 1.5-liter four-cylinder unit found in the Fit for a 1.8-liter four-banger with 138 ponies at its disposal. Read on for the full details.

Update 09/19/2016: Honda has announced pricing for the 2017 Honda HR-V. There are no significant changes for the 2017MY, however, Honda is now offering Lunar Sliver Metallic as an exterior color and discontinuing Alabaster Silver. Pricing starts at $19,365 for the entry-level LX trim level. Check out the "Prices" section below for further details.

Best SUVs Under $20,000

There are really no right or wrong answers here, especially when you factor in how much a person is willing to spend

One of the most difficult questions to answer in the auto industry these days doesn’t involve supercars, luxury cars, or even premium cars. It involves crossovers and SUVs, specifically the question of which is the best of its kind among those priced at a certain cost point. In this case, our cost point is $20,000, which means that a lot of today’s compact crossovers are involved in this difficult, if not impossible, discussion. And like every question posed in this business, answers vary depending on who you ask. In our case, ask us which are the best SUVs under $20,000, and these are our answers.

Stolen Honda HR-V Found With Lyft Stickers And 13,000 Miles On The Odometer

Ride-sharing company has no clue what happened

A brand new Honda HR-V that was stolen back in August in front of the apartment of its owners has been found abandoned on the side of a road for around two weeks. That in itself makes this a head-scratching case. But the story doesn’t end there. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the stolen HR-V had Lyft stickers on the front and rear windows, a sign that the HR-V was used as a Lyft vehicle at the time it was stolen.

TopSpeed Podcast Episode 008 - "We like Auto Shows More Than we Like Mark"

TopSpeed Podcast Episode 008 - "We like Auto Shows More Than we Like Mark"

Happy Thursday everyone! It is time once again for the TopSpeed Podcast. This week we are a man down as Mark is in North Carolina checking out the all-new 2015 Hyundai Genesis. We are very jealous of him, and poke lots of fun.

Once we get down to business, we cover Weekly Wheels in which Justin discusses a very expensive tiny Mazda, and I wax poetically about how freaking fast the Nissan GT-R is.

News this week is once again full of auto show happenings. We discuss our best and worst picks for New York, cover a few pieces of the NYC show we missed last week, and then we talk about some of the reveals that took place at Beijing. Some of the Beijing news included the new VW NMC concept and the Audi TT Offroad concept.

This week we did also do video! It should be uploaded later tonight and we will update the post tomorrow

The Questions and Answers segment was short this week as we only had one submission, so don’t forget to send us questions in the comments, on the Twitters (@TopSpeedPodcast) or in an email: Podcast@TopSpeed.com

Since there is only two of us, we decided to put Own Drive Burn on hold until Mark returns. Don’t forget to send us suggestions for those as well.

We want to thank everyone for listening, and we hope everyone has a great weekend. If you liked this week’s Podcast, why don’t you give us a rating or a review over at iTunes. It makes us feel happy inside when you do that. Click play below or above to listen to the podcast.

Weekly Wheels: Mazda3, Nissan GT-R
Hosts: Christian Moe, Justin Cupler
