2018 Honda CR-V VTi-L review

Identical to a regular CR-V on the outside, with an extra pair of seats loaded up inside, the CR-V VTi-L joins a growing list of medium SUVs with added versatility. Does that make it an ideal family freighter, or only a part-time passenger proposition?

2018 Honda CR-V VTi review

While it may be the entry point to the CR-V range, the base-grade VTi neither looks nor feels like a cut-price path into Honda’s refreshingly competent medium SUV.

2018 Honda CR-V VTi-S review

The 2018 Honda CR-V VTi-S is an excellent offering, but it's disappointingly short on active safety technology.

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.

AEB, LDA, LKAS, LOLBBQ... Safety acronyms demystified

AEB, LDA, LDW, RDM, ACC... what on earth does it all mean? (Okay, you got us, 'LOLBBQ' isn't a real safety system...) All of these acronyms for the high-tech safety systems in modern cars can be confusing, especially with each vehicle manufacturer picking their own trademarkable name for features that usually fit under a broad umbrella...

Comparison: 2018 Honda CR-V v Hyundai Tucson

At this end of the SUV spectrum, it's all about sharp pricing and value for money. Everybody wants to get into an SUV, but which one should you go for? It can be pretty confusing. Here, Paul tests two top competitors in the medium SUV segment.

2018 Medium SUV Mega Test

Mid-2018 marked another milestone moment in Australian new-car sales. The mid-sized SUV displaced the small car as Australia’s favourite vehicle type in June. It happened again in August, September and October. It was perhaps only inevitable after SUVs started outselling passenger cars in 2017...

2018 Honda CR-V VTi-S v Hyundai Tucson Active X comparison

SUV sales are going nuts in Australia. Everybody wants to get into an SUV, but which one should you go for? It can be pretty confusing. If you don't have stacks of money to spend, but equally you don't want to be stuck with a base model, we've lined up two cars you should consider if you're after a mid-sized SUV...

2018 Honda CR-V VTi-L v Nissan X-Trail ST-L comparison

The all-new Honda CR-V and significantly updated Nissan X-Trail – two big nameplates in one hugely popular mid-sized SUV segment – arrived in the second half of 2017. And in November, we kicked off comparing these two revised protagonists’ ranges by pitching petrol-powered, all-wheel-driven, five-seater flagships in the form of Honda’s VTi-LX and Nissan’s TI versions against one another...

2019 Honda CR-V Hybrid revealed for Europe

Honda Europe has revealed the new 2019 CR-V Hybrid, which along with the regular range has been detailed for the region. While the new-generation CR-V has been on sale in Australia for some time, Europe has been waiting up until now – it's worth noting our vehicles are sourced from Thailand, while European models are made in the UK...

2006 Honda CR-V (4x4) Sport review

When thinking of a car to write about today, I dare say I have a few to choose from: my 1973 Mini, which was my first car, for example; my ’85 XF Panel van – the best-ever car to have as an 18-year-old; hell, even my parents’ 2017 Impreza RS would have been a worthy contender...

2003 Honda CR-V (4x4) Sport review

I bought this vehicle in December of 2017 from a friend of mine, and it has been one of my favourite Hondas after owning various vehicles since obtaining my licence all those many years ago. My very first car was a Honda Scamp with its two-stroke engine, which was very reliable and very cheap to run. But the body of the car rusted, yet the rest of the car just kept on going...

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...
