The current Honda CR-V is the fourth generation of the Japanese firm's compact SUV. As with its predecessors it’s unashamedly not a go-anywhere 4x4, but rather a practical, durable family car.
Honda makes no claims to sportiness – the CR-V is available with only one chassis set-up and it’s geared towards ease-of-use and comfort.
Like most of its rivals the CR-V is offered in both front- and four-wheel-drive formats, and with trim levels that range from fairly basic to lavish.
In terms of overall size the CR-V is a close match for cars such as the Ford Kuga and Toyota RAV4 – it’s both longer and taller than a Nissan Qashqai. Those fairly generous dimensions help to make it one of the most practical cars in its class. Prices are on a par with mainstream rivals, while running costs are average for most models, too.
