All versions of the CR-V are okay – rather than outstanding – to drive. Five-seat models are very practical, while the seven-seater disappoints

Trim:

SE

Trims have yet to be confirmed by Honda, but they are expected to be broadly similar to those for the outgoing CR-V. From that, we can deduce that S is likely to have 17in wheels, climate control, electric windows and adaptive cruise control, while SE will get trinkets such as privacy glass, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera. The priciest trims should get bigger alloy wheels, electrically operated and heated leather seats, keyless entry and a powered tailgate.

The only engine that will be available from launch is this 1.5-litre petrol. It’s turbocharged to give out a reasonable 171bhp when hooked up to the six-speed manual gearbox. Curiously, if you choose the CVT auto ’box, this is boosted to 190bhp, with a bit more torque to boot. In either form, it’ll get the big CR-V from 0-62mph in just under 10 seconds and it’s peppy enough if you keep the revs above 2000rpm. But for towing or regularly carrying lots of people, rival diesels may prove a better bet.
