2018 Honda CR-V review

The new 2018 Honda CR-V is as practical as ever, but adds more polished dynamics, design panache and thoughtful specification levels. It should be on your shortlist if you're after a mainstream compact SUV.

2017 Honda CR-V VTi-L ADAS review

2015 Hyundai Tucson v Honda CR-V : Diesel Comparison Review

The just-released Honda CR-V DTi-L Limited Edition sees a welcome return of a turbo diesel option to the Series II line-up launched late last year. It’s so fresh off the boat that the 1.6-litre mid-sized family hauler missed the start line for our all-paw, all-diesel SUV shootout back in August. Given that new kid Hyundai Tucson Highlander 2...

Honda CR-V VTi-L v Mitsubishi Outlander Exceed: Comparison Review

Mid-life updates can be minor or substantial – and it’s fair to say that the changes seen on the recently-arrived 2015 Honda CR-V Series II and 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander slot into the latter category. The revised Honda CR-V went on sale late last year, but this is the first time we’ve had a chance to get one through the garage...

The new 2018 Honda CR-V range is now on sale in Australia, bringing turbo power and, for the first time, seven-seat versatility to the company's popular medium SUV line-up. Starting from $30,690 (all prices before on-road costs), the price of entry raises by $900 over the previous fourth-generation model, though Honda argues that the new version brings between $2600 and $4350 in added value, depending on variant...

Honda CR-V to be offered with 2.0-litre entry-level price leader?

Honda's all-new CR-V is just around the corner with an expected local launch in July. While the company has only confirmed one engine — a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that produces 140kW of power and 240Nm of torque, mated to a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) — and both a front- and all-wheel drive drivetrain, there could be another engine coming...

2013 Honda CR-V VTi (4x4) Review

This is a car the brands you as a breeder, albeit more subtly than a people mover would. After all it is an SUV and that is kind of tough and cool. Since I am on the topic of breeding or family transport, the Honda CRV is a very spacious five-seater that is immensely practical. Rear legroom and luggage space is massive...

2012 Honda CR-V VTi (4x2) Review

Have had my Honda CRV for 2 1/2 yrs, (3rd Honda) but very disappointed with this model. Perhaps it is this particular vehicle, as I have a couple of little problems with it. Mainly take off, seems to chug a lot and will not increase speed past 60kmh for first 1-2 kms, this is an intermittent problem. Dealership and Honda Australia keep telling me it is a "peculiarity" of this model in manual...

2014 Honda CR-V Dti-L Review

We were in the market for an SUV, like most of the country considering the abundance of them these days. After looking at the most popular models like the Rav-4, CX-5 and the VW Tiguan, we decided for the Honda. Almost all SUV’s come in a diesel and I’d be very surprised at anyone who would specifically go for a petrol version...

2005 HONDA CRV (4x4) Review

Our family has two CR-Vs, a 2005 5-speed manual 2.4 litre base model (mine), and a 2004 4-speed auto 2.4 litre "Winter Classic" (wife's). Both cars have always been serviced by the Honda dealer, both have done 200,000kms plus, both have been totally reliable, never required anything other than scheduled service parts. Both still drive "like new"...
