Entry-level CR-V models are keenly priced, but upgrade to the versions with more desirable engines and trims and it starts to look a little pricey compared with cars such as the Nissan Qashqai.
Resale values are strong, however, and although dealer discounts aren’t likely to be as generous as those at, say, a Ford showroom, it’s possible to haggle a decent amount off the list price.
The 1.6 i-DTEC diesel model is impressively frugal, with an official average of 64.2mpg. CO2 emissions of just 115g/km for this model are very competitive, too, but Nissan offers a Qashqai model that drops below the 100g/km barrier.
Opt for larger-engined and four-wheel-drive models and costs rise dramatically, especially if you opt for the 2.0-litre petrol.
