Review

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

get the best price

Trim: SE

SE versions add 18in alloy wheels, automatic wipers, front parking sensors, a rear-view camera, and auto-dimming rear-view mirror, a leather steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone links and in-built sat-nav. It's our recommended option.

Engine: 2.0 i-MMD Hybrid

The hybrid has more torque than the petrol, so it copes better with more people and luggage, and it's the quickest model in the CR-V range, hitting 0-62mph in 8.8sec. Just don’t expect it to tow very much, because, unlike a manual CR-V that can pull a braked trailer of up to 2000kg, the hybrid can only manage 750kg. To put that into context, the four-wheel-drive Toyota RAV4 Hybrid can tow up to 1650kg, which is the weight of a large caravan. The RAV4 is also quicker and much more efficient, although we still reckon as CR-V's stand, this is the best engine in the range.
