I have owned the HCH for a month now and during that time I have driven over 2400 miles. It included a long weekend trip. The ride is comfortable and maintaining highway speed isnít a problem. Gas mileage: 43.5mpg first tank of gas and after learning to drive the Hybrid my last tank netted me 52.7mpg. Note: I stayed in the 65 to 67mph range on the highways to net 52mpg. Normally, I can net 45mpg driving at higher highway speeds. The interior is comfortable, well designed, fit and finish is very good. Trunk space is good, although the rear seats donít fold down. The navigation system is cool and you can adjust, search w/the voice recognition system.
Advanced IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) + i-VTEC system, Navigation system w/ voice control. Standard front air bags, side curtain air bags, along w/ side air bags for the front seats. ABS braking w/ Electronic Brake Distribution.
While quiet at speeds of <50mph, a little too much road noise at speeds over 60mph. The noise is not oppressive though and you can carry on a conversation. Active head restraints take a little getting use to since they angle forward.
