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.

Car reviewers usually determine which cars to compared based on the vehicle ‘segment’ they occupy. Medium SUVs take on medium SUVs, small hatches take on small hatches, and so on… Yet we know based on buyer data, and personal experience alike, car buyers don’t always think in these terms...

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...

Tricia needs a fairly specific type of car: one that can cope with a mobility scooter being loaded in and out, on a regular basis. Doing what we do, CarAdvice writers are often asked by friends and family, and through our contact page: which car is best for me? Most buyers can identify the top three non-negotiable factors that will guide their purchase decision...

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.

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"...
