The Honda CR-V was originally launched in the UK in 1997 and proved so successful that production of the European model was transferred to Honda's Swindon plant.

The Honda CR-V was originally launched in the UK in 1997 and proved so successful that production of the European model was transferred to Honda's Swindon plant. The current (second generation) model was introduced in early 2002 building on its predecessor's success.

The CR-V is available in SE, Sport and Executive trim levels with prices ranging from £17,725 to £23,100.

A choice of two engines are available the 2.0 i-VTEC petrol and the 2.2 i-CTDi diesel engine the first to be fully designed and developed in-house by Honda.

A 5-speed manual gearbox is standard with the 2.0i VTEC petrol engine, a 6-speed manual is standard with the 2.2 i-CTDi diesel engine and a 4-speed automatic is available as an option with the 2.0 i-VTEC petrol engine. Disappointingly an automatic option is not available with the diesel engine.

With competition in the form of the BMW X3, Hyundai Tucson, Jeep Cherokee, Kia Sportage , Land Rover Freelander , Nissan X-TRAIL , Suzuki Grand Vitara and Toyota RAV4 can the Honda CR-V retain its crown as one of Britain's most popular SUV's?
