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

Starts to push the price up too much for our full vote, but does add things worth having, such as heated seats, leather seats, privacy glass, passenger seat lumbar and height adjustment, keyless entry and more safety kit, including blind spot monitoring.

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.
