How much does it cost to run a Honda CR-V estate?

Front-wheel-drive versions offer the lowest fuel consumption, with the manual 1.6-litre diesel managing a combined figure of 64.2mpg (NEDC). However, early 2.2 i-DTEC cars still offer relatively good economy (50.4mpg) if your budget cannot stretch to a 2015 or newer model. Petrol cars struggle to achieve 40mpg, especially when paired with the old-fashioned five-speed automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive.

Road tax costs vary considerably; the 2.0-litre petrol is the worst culprit with emissions of 179g/km of CO2 if it comes with an automatic gearbox and four-wheel drive. The 1.6-litre diesel, on the other hand, emits only 115g/km. The 2.2-litre diesel falls somewhere in between with 149g/km, but beware that the automatic version pushes emissions up to 180g/km. If you're looking at an example registered after 1 April 2017, it'll fall under the current flat-rate system, rather than the CO2-based system that applies to older cars. To find out more about the current road tax costs, click here for further information.

Used Hondas that are older than three years of age can take advantage of fixed-price servicing costs. Prices for petrol cars range from £170 for a basic 12-month service to £275 for a more intensive one that replaces the air filter, pollen filter and brake fluid. Diesel models are a little more pricey at £190 for a basic 12-month service, or £295 for the more in-depth one. If you need to have the diesel fuel filter replaced as part of the service, budget for an extra £116 bill.
