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.

Air flow & road noise

This car’s design in terrible for road noise. The fan for heater & air conditioner is terrible compared to other cars. The high level is like a low to other cars. Wish I woof known this before purchasing it I would of went with a different company.


So Far, So Good!

My 2018 CR-V is a step-up from my 2014 Toyota Corolla - roomier, smoother riding. It's new to me, so we'll have to see how economical it is. My Toyota gave me 42 mpg on the road. I hope this one does close to that. I've never owned a car with heated seats, remote start and other bells & whistles. Let's hope they all hang in there!


A good value for the money

Ride is a little rougher than I anticipated, but acceptable. The turbo 4 has plenty of power. Very good gss mileage. Seats are comfortable for long trips. Electronics are easy to understand and operate.
