The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

Few people will have any complaints about the fundamentals in the Honda CR-V. The pedals, seat and steering wheel are all well-aligned. There’s a good range of adjustment for the steering column's height and reach, and the driver’s seat offers manual height and electric lumbar adjustment.

The lever for adjusting the backrest angle is annoying, though – it leaves you with a set number of positions only, none of which ever seems to be ideal. Electrically adjustable seats are available to cure this, but you’ll have to fork out for the most expensive EX trim. The seat itself is really comfortable for a long journey, though.

If you crane your neck to look behind you, the lightly tapering rear window line still leaves plenty of glass area for a clearer view when reversing than you'll find in rivals, including the Hyundai Santa Fe and Land Rover Discovery Sport.

That said, those two rivals, as with most of the cars in the large SUV class, come with parking aids as standard. In the CR-V they include front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera on all but entry-level S trim. Bright LED headlights are standard throughout the range.

Sat nav and infotainment

Let’s not pull any punches here: the CR-V’s infotainment system is poor. So, what’s the problem? Well, the touchscreen is conveniently positioned on the dashboard, but even the biggest screen fitted from our recommended SE trim is 7.0in, which is quite small by today's standards.
