See How Honda HR-V Handles The Moose Test

It nearly reached the magic 77 km/h figure.

The moose test is one of the most difficult moves that an automobile must perform. It not only checks if the stability control is working properly, but it can also reveal any dynamic flaws. This test has been conducted by the team at km77.com for several years. There have also been some unexpected outcomes, some good and others bad.

The Honda HR-V is the most recent vehicle to avoid the fictitious moose. The subcompact crossover was completely overhauled, and we’re interested to see how the new chassis performs under load. Its goal is to avoid the cones at a speed of 77 km/h (47.8 mph).

For the test, Km77.com used the 1.5 i-MMD Advance Style version. It’s propelled by a 1.5-liter engine and a single electric motor, producing 129 horsepower in total (96 kilowatts). This variant also has wider tyres, which should provide a larger contact patch.

The HR-V appeared to hit the critical 77 km/h (47.8 mph) mark at first glance. The subcompact crossover, on the other hand, clipped the first cone in the second gate. The HR-V nudged the same cone again in a second test at 76 km/h (47.2 mph). It eventually passed the test at 74 km/h (46 mph), 3 km/h slower than the desired speed (1.9 mph).

Despite its high centre of gravity, the automobile showed good responses, according to the testers. During the evasive manoeuvre, there was some body bounce, and it lifted its inside rear wheel at higher speeds. Despite this, km77.com claims that the compact crossover has good dynamics. The stability control, according to the testers, is not overbearing and only intervenes in extreme cases.

In the moose test, the HR-V matches the Mazda CX-30, putting it on par with comparable subcompact crossovers. While the result isn’t spectacular, it should provide a good indication of how the North American HR-V will perform in emergency situations.
