What would be the difference between "merre" and "hova" in this sentence?

Merre specifically asks for a direction (eg. nyugatra - to the west), while hova refers to a place (eg. strandra - to the beach).

I was taught by my friend Zsolti that "merre" meant "which way". We were walking from the train station in Pécs to my hotel, and I was trying to work on "right", "left", "straight", etc.

Which or what direction? Isn't both ok?

Wouldn't it be then "hova mennek azok az autók"?

That is possible, too. English doesn't have a specific word for "in which direction", so it mostly uses "where" to cover that meaning as well.
