Honda CR-V VTi X 2021 road test review
Tim Nicholson puts Honda's best-selling model, the CR-V, to the test.
The first Honda CR-V went on sale in Australia in 1997 and won a legion of fans for its space, practicality, and ride height. It was one of the pioneers in the so-called soft-roader brigade along with Toyota’s RAV4. It’s now Honda’s bestselling model, but it’s been overshadowed in recent years by newer fare like the RAV4, Mazda CX-5 and Hyundai Tucson. A week with the updated CR-V provided a timely reminder that it’s an underrated family hauler deserving of more attention.
- Thumbs down: Dated interior design, average infotainment, unnecessary analogue/digital climate controls.
The Honda CR-V is perfect for growing families that spend a lot of time on the road.
The CR-V has a flexible interior that feels larger than the dimensions suggest.
