Honda CRV

published

I have purchased a Honda CRV . An outstanding car to drive. It feels safe, plenty of room for 4 adults. It drives like a car should do , it has great stability, you feel like you are in control when driving this car. Any excuse to get behind the wheel. The interior has everything that you need, coffee holders are essential which it has. Dashboard is well designed easy to navigate all the controls, very economic, I would highly recommend this as a family car and it’s well priced, go get a test drive and you will see for yourself how good the Honda is.

Nice care if you're prepared to keep filling it up with oil

published

At 80k on the odometer, I have just been told that burning up to 1 ltr of oil per 1,000 km is normal. So anyone considering buying a CRV should be prepared to top up with half a litre of oil every time they fill up with petrol. I'm going to ditch mine and would warn anyone thinking of buying one of these.

The interior is nice and it handles well, but it has been losing power along with burning oil. Full Honda service history from new and when it comes to getting the burning of a ridiculous amount of oil fixed under warranty, I'm told that it is normal. Second and last CRV for me.

Purchased at Honda Dealers.

Honda CRV VTi 7 Lacks basic features

published

The car is good as a 5 seater. The last two seats in a 7 seater are only for small kids. Lacks basic features even auto lights is a upgrade feature. Doesn’t come even spending more than 40 K. The boot in a 7 seater becomes uneven if u fold the last row of seats. Doesn’t have any sensors. Digital Analog radio is not there. All the features are very basic and available in most same range cars. Bought the car in a rush but not a happy customer. Should have checked the competition.

Purchased in for $40,500.

Maintains the Quality offering with a soften 'look'

published

Searched for SUV that is affordable, Quality built with reasonable resale value and the 2021 CR-V came on top of our list. Spacious inside with the standard inclusions. Acceptable power and comfort for a medium size SUV.

A great choice

published

Purchased to replace an ageing captiva. The Honda was being compared with other 5 seater SUV s on the market. We use this as our family car and have 2 young adult children and ageing parents so back seat room was important.
The wider opening rear doors are great.The ride is quiet and smooth.
Excellent fuel economy and leather seat a luxury we can't live without.
Only downside is, like every new vehicle on the market, sooo many bells an whistles.Fortunately in the Honda they are easily disabled if you wish.

Honda CR-V (2017-2022)

Details

Features

The CR-V line up starts with the $34,849.00 Vi model, and prices through to the top of the range VTi L7 priced at $48,318.00.

Standard features you’ll find on the base CR-V includes:

  • 17 inch alloy wheels.
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a 7 inch infotainment display.
  • Reversing camera.
  • Dual-zone climate control.
  • USB ports.
  • 522L of boot space, total boot space of 1084L.

You have a choice of two engines:

  • 113kW, 189Nm naturally aspirated petrol four cylinder.
  • 140kW, 240Nm turbocharged petrol four cylinder.

And, you have a choice of just 2WD or 4WD drivetrains.

Points of Praise:

  • Comfortable to drive, as well as to ride in as a passenger.
  • Good fuel consumption.
  • Reliable with long service intervals of 10,000kms between services.
  • A responsive engine, which helps getting the CR-V up to speed and out of tight corners.
  • Rear seats fold flat, which meant one of our reviews found it easy to transport a full kitchen set from IKEA.

2021 ProductReview Awards logo

Honda took home the 2021 Award for its CR-V SUV. Our reviewers reported on how they favour the CR-V’s responsive motor, modest fuel consumption, interior and exterior design.
