How It Looks - Interior
The interior styling of the Honda CR-V is simple and hardwearing but in our opinion a bit dated. The interior expanse of black plastic is uninspiring and lacks the modern trend towards 'soft touch' materials.
The black seat fabric should wear well in the long term although leather (standard on Executive models) would be better suited to the rigours of family life.
The Honda CR-V 2.2 i-CTDi Sport is fitted with a a stereo single
slot CD tuner with RDS, front and rear speakers and tweeters as
standard. The sound quality was good - the good acoustics could
be down to the boxy shape of the CR-V.
Out test car was equipped with the integrated DVD Satellite Navigation (standard on Executive models and optional on SE & Sport models) which is capable of guiding you around the whole of Europe with ease.
