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 53.3mpg (WLTP), while the four-wheel drive alternative gets 51.4mpg.
The 171bhp petrol CR-V equipped with a manual gearbox gets a combined figure of 44.8mpg (or 42.8mpg with four-wheel drive). The 190bhp version that comes exclusively with four-wheel drive and an automatic gearbox is the thirstiest CR-V, at 39.8mpg.
Naturally, the non-hybrid 1.5 petrol puts out the most CO2 at 143g/km for the two-wheel drive and 151g/km for the four-wheel drive. The hybrid is far better at 120g/km in two-wheel drive form and 126g/km with four-wheel drive.
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. To find out more about the current road tax system, click here.
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. For cars less than three years old, 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. After your car reaches three years of age, prices drop to a more reasonable £180 for a 12-month service or £290 for a 12-month plus service that includes changing the air and pollen filter and brake fluid.
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.
