Honda's belief is that 'we have the power to change things' 'to make the ordinary extraordinary' 'we believe in evolution - intelligent changes that make things perfect' 'the CR-V is the result of that belief'.

Comfort and Refinement

Honda's belief is that 'we have the power to change things' 'to make the ordinary extraordinary' 'we believe in evolution - intelligent changes that make things perfect' 'the CR-V is the result of that belief'.

In developing the second generation CR-V Honda have certainly pushed the boundaries and built on the excellent first generation model.

The seats are large, supportive and easy to get in and out of as you step down out of the vehicle and head room, leg room and shoulder width is excellent. The rear seats also independently recline enabling rear seat passengers to get comfortable.

The drivers seat is height adjustable and the leather wrapped steering wheel is tilt adjustable enabling you to find the optimum driving position. Both the driver and front passengers seats incorporate an armrest and the rear seat has a centre armrest.

Overall the level of refinement is high and includes an illuminated air-conditioned glovebox, steering wheel mounted controls, driver & passenger vanity mirror with lid in sunshade, drivers footrest, power adjustable and heated door mirrors, glass electric tilt or slide sunroof with sunshade, power assisted steering, front and rear electric windows and climate controlled air conditioning with pollen filter.

How It Looks -

The Honda CR-V has been around since 2002 in this guise and it certainly has stiff competition in the form of more modern rivals such as the Nissan X-TRAIL , the new Suzuki Grand Vitara and new Toyota RAV4 but in our opinion the CR-V is still a very attractive vehicle which is more than able to hold its own in the styling stakes.

Dramatic new headlights, stronger body lines and a more distinctive front bumper and grille enhance the CR-V's already purposeful exterior.
