      Just ordered Honda ZR-V. Amazing spec. Plenty of space front and back. Very smooth to drive with excellent mpg.  The best bit is immediate delivery no lengthy wait. Can pick up next week. AP £1499

              very very well. I am only getting 39mpg but I am not bothering with the regen as, even at it’s strongest setting,  it’s so weak and takes an age to even slow by 30mph. The mirrors are massive and there isn’t actually any blind spots so my lack of BSM hasn’t bothered me at all. It’s a very smooth drive but will also fly down a country lane with ease. I find the seats very very comfortable on every drive and the Bose system has proper bass and a nice crisp sound. Foot gesture on the boot hasn’t let me down once and the car feels massive with the sunroof. Road sign recognition is a pain as the speed flashes in the HUD and on the digital drivers display but I turn it off every trip. There are 6 hot keys on the bottom of the infotainment which can be programmed to anything which helps with ease of use. The steering wheel gets very warm very quickly but the front and back seat heating is a bit tepid as the leather is quite thick. Still loving it!!

                What sort of journeys are you doing mileage wise to return 39mpg ? are they really short trips like under 5 miles ?

                    I think he has it in sports mode ? I’d keep it in eco car gurus tested it on YouTube got 55 mpg in the real world that was a white advance model

                      How are people finding the cabin noise? Youtube reviewers said that road and wind noise was very intrusive, which was certainly the case on my test drive

                        what speed does the noise become vocal ? Is it above 55 mph ? Is it tyre noise ?

                            I’ve just had a 100mile trip. Road noise is quite excessive. Tried turning the radio up to drown it out. Hope I am not going to regret ordering this car. To me its tyre noise I am hearing. Wonder if different tyres would help

                                  Can anybody answer. The Honda ZR can load multiple mobiles but you have to select priority. Me as the driver has this set, but when my wife gets a call in the passenger seat it does not get picked up by the car. All my previous cars it picked up whoever was called. Its a bit inconvenient having to change users depending who is driving. Can you set it like my other cars?

                                    What make of tyre’s are Honda using,are they Bridgestone ? what size ?

                                    Has anyone with deep pockets gone for 19 or 20 inch wheel option.

                                    This night drive does have a little hum does sound like tyre noise.

                                        really ? Surely only on the motorway ?

                                          Unfortunately not. It is slightly quieter at 70. Its between 40 and 60 that it’s noisy.

                                            oh I see what mpg are you getting in eco mode ? Do you have the sport or the advance ? Many thanks

                                                Have other owners noticed when you are doing 70mph on dual carriageway and approaching a roundabout you take your foot off the the gas the car doesn’t reduce speed. I have had to apply brakes quite sharpish. Must be the type of engine, you get used to it but beware when you first get the car. The deceleration is practically nil.

                                                    It usually won’t see roundabouts or sharp bends etc. it’s often stated to be for motorway only

                                                      Cruise was on but I had applied brake to deactivate well in advance of roundabout
