2018 Honda CR-V Interior, Exterior and 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.

A new Honda CR-V has arrived, giving the company ammunition to tackle dominant rivals such as the Mazda CX-5, Hyundai Tucson and Toyota RAV4.

This redesigned and altogether more sophisticated model is the latest – and arguably most important – part of Honda’s product-led revival, joining the still-new Civic sedan and hatch, and smaller HR-V.

Before we share our first impressions from the Australian launch held this week, some background. This is the fifth iteration of the Honda CR-V since the nameplate’s 1995 debut. More than nine-million have been sold worldwide, including 170,000 in Australia.

While its lustre has dimmed of late, the CR-V was something of a pioneer in the medium/compact SUV class that today is the fastest-growing part of the entire automotive market. Now, Honda’s back to reclaim lost market share.

The new range comes in four levels of specification, and is available with front- or all-wheel drive and a solitary turbo-petrol engine offering. It’s bigger and more spacious than its already capacious predecessor, and also comes available for the first time with seven seats.

Honda makes no bones about it. While the Mazda CX-5 or Volkswagen Tiguan is pitched as something of a style statement, the CR-V is aimed squarely at families, people who probably value unpretentious practicality and ride height above all else.

And before you simply glide to the bottom of the page, we’ll tell you that Honda has largely achieved this aim. The much-improved CR-V ticks almost all of the requisite boxes and leaps immediately onto our segment shortlist.
