The new Honda CR-V is a big improvement over the previous model, but not a home run
21 Nov 2012
HONDA says it has well and truly turned a corner after a long period of declining sales and product mediocrity, with the fourth-generation CR-V being the latest example.
Smaller yet roomier, better equipped yet with a cheaper entry price, and a whole lot quieter, more refined and safe, it represents a stronger proposition for buyers who have long abandoned the series for more sparkling rivals like the Mazda CX-5.
The latest Honda compact SUV doesn’t do anything truly spectacular, but it also doesn’t do a whole lot wrong either. We reckon it’s easier to recommend than the old one.

RE CR-VReleased: February 2007
Ended: October 2012
Family Tree: CR-V
A MASSIVE improvement over the rather coarse second-generation CR-V, the RE series abolished the 4x4-like side-opening tailgate and exposed spare wheel for a roomier and more refined wagon body with five adequate seats, more safety and improved driveability.
