What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For The CR-V drives well on the road. It's also very reliable and spacious inside

Against It has limited off-road ability, and there's too much grey plastic in the cabin

Verdict It's a fine family car – just stick to the Tarmac

Go for… LS cars

Avoid… ES Executives

Honda CR-V 4x4
  • 1. Apart from using too much drab plastic, the cabin is hard to fault
  • 2. Four-wheel drive only kicks in when the system detects the front wheels slipping; otherwise, it runs in front-wheel drive
  • 3. Suspension bushes and brake discs may need attention after about 50,000 miles
  • 4. The CR-V makes a fine alternative to a conventional estate car
  • 5. There's more rear legroom than in a Toyota RAV4
