How much does it cost to run a Honda CR-V estate?
Since there is no diesel engine, you’ll need to go for the hybrid if you want more respectable fuel costs. A front-wheel drive model is the best at 40.9mpg (WLTP), while the four-wheel drive alternative gets 38.7mpg.
The 171bhp 1.5 petrol CR-V equipped with a manual gearbox gets a combined figure of 36.2mpg (or 35.8mpg with four-wheel drive). The 190bhp version that comes exclusively with an automatic gearbox is the thirstiest CR-V, at 35.8mpg for the two-wheel drive and 32.5mpg for the four-wheel drive.
Car tax (VED)
Every CR-V will fall under the current road tax system and therefore have to pay a flat rate fee, although no version costs more than £40,000 when new, so you’ll not have to pay the luxury car surcharge. The current VED charge for the petrol model is £150 a year. Go for the hybrid model and you'll get a slight discount because it's classed as an alternative fuel vehicle.

CR-Vs require servicing every 12 months and 12,500 miles, and Honda's servicing costs are higher than those of some other mainstream manufacturers. All examples are less than three years old at the time of writing, so for two-wheel drive models, it’ll cost you £235 for the first year, £310 for the second and £290 for the third, with an additional £90 charge if your CVT automatic gearbox needs a fluid change during the second or third service. Four-wheel drive models cost a little more at £260, £330 and £310, respectively.
Insurance groups range from group 22 for an entry-level SE hybrid to 25 for a top-spec 1.5-litre EX with four-wheel drive. These are all lower than key rivals such as the Toyota RAV4.
