The Honda CR-V is an excellent SUV that is a safe and comfortable family car choice. It's also well built with lots of safety features and has an impressive reliability record.
Drivers have the choice of two 1.6 litre diesel engines producing either 158 bhp or 118 bhp for the Honda CR-V or a single 2.0 litre petrol engine which produces 153 bhp; most drivers will find the lower powered diesel unit provides the best in terms of economy and power. This engine should return 64 mpg while the petrol unit will return 39 mpg with emissions of 168g/km. There's a choice of a six speed manual gearbox or a nine speed automatic box which when coupled to the 1.6 litre diesel unit will return economy of 55 mpg.
The Honda CR-V is a comfortable car to drive that grips the road to offer drivers a safe vehicle. There's a wide range of trims available and just two offer satnav as standard. However, the list of standard equipment is long with alloy wheels, cruise control, climate control and DAB radio among the offering. Other models come with front fog lights, rear parking sensors, leather seats, panoramic sunroof and the firm's excellent infotainment system. Safety features include hill start assist, autonomous braking for when the vehicle detects an imminent collision and will apply the brakes automatically, and it's a safe vehicle to boot.
While the Honda CR-V looks like an SUV it's really designed for on-road use rather than going off-road though it is very good across a variety of surfaces. The seating system is versatile and there's a large boot to offer practicality - it's larger than many of its rivals in its class. Essentially, when the CR-V was first launched, Honda made a great deal about its car-like driving abilities which was unusual at the time and it's still a great car to drive and along with its high build quality and well-designed interior, it's a great choice in the compact SUV segment.
