2018 Honda CR-V review: Our expert's take

What it is: The five-seat CR-V is Honda’s popular entry in the thriving compact SUV segment. It was redesigned last year with larger dimensions and updated styling. Base LX versions use a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine, while other trim levels have a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder. All models come with a continuously variable automatic transmission and a choice of front- or all-wheel drive.

Main competitors include the Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Escape, Hyundai Tucson, Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4.

There are no significant changes.

2018 CRV Touring

I had a 2013 before the 2018 CRV. The 2018 is much noiser than the 2013. I do like both. Not sure I would buy another one. I'm considering a Toyota Corolla Cross for my next vehicle.


Road Noise

I Love everything about my 2018 CRV EXCEPT the road noise!!!! A problem that is shared amongst many CRV owners that I have talked too.


Best SUV ever.

I'm not a high tech kind of guy. In fact, I've never even bothered to learned how to program my vehicle car radio or phone. I've used my CRV as a truck for hauling, camping and all around vehicle transport. It has never let me down and I would buy another one if needed.
