What Car? says...

Take a peek at Honda’s website, and atop the list of things it makes is a statement: ‘Dream machines to make you smile.’ Absolutely, if you’re thinking of a new superbike, a thumping great outboard for your slinky new speedboat or the fabulous Civic Type R hot hatch. But the rest of the stuff on that list: the lawn mowers, the generators or the CR-V… Really?

The CR-V has never been the kind of car that would have you dribbling into your pillow at night. But, to be fair, neither would many of its rivals, which include the Skoda KodiaqVolkswagen Tiguan(and the bigger Tiguan Allspace) and Peugeot 5008.

What’s important here is not the dream but the reality: is the CR-V a great – or even the greatest – large SUV you can buy from a driving and owning perspective? Read on and we’ll let you know.

Just be aware, though, that this review is for the 2019 CR-V, which is so new – it’ll be in UK showrooms from September – that there are still quite a few details yet to be released. As a result, we’ll be updating this review regularly over the next few months.

If you can’t wait until September and need an SUV now, head over to our New Car Buying page, where you’ll find top deals on pretty much every new car available.
