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.

everything with the car is excellent- runs so well

This car will be very handy with storing all my walkers and wheelchairs when I bring them. I also like that I can easily get onto the drivers seat.


Used car purchase

We have only owned the Honda CRV a few weeks and love the way it handles looks and comfort the accessories are very user friendly the car is very enjoyable


Reliable, smooth drive.

This is my second CRV. It has plenty of room, especially for a tall dog, as this was important for us. Easy to drive and park in both suburbs and city
