Driving Impression

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Honda engineers carefully blended composed handling with a refined ride. The CR-V is intended for the core of the compact crossover market, so its driving behavior is slanted more toward a premium feel than aggressive or sporty. Steering is accurate and responsive, and the car feels secure and confident when moving briskly on curvy two-lanes.

The suspension subdues flawed pavement. The frame was stiffened as part of the 2017 redesign, enabling a softer suspension to be used without affecting the overall stability. It might not handle better in corners than the athletic Mazda CX-5, but the ride is more comfortable.

Performance is adequate in the LX with the base 2.4-liter engine, but considerably stronger in models using the 1.5-liter turbo, whose acceleration and passing power are helped by torque that is fully there at a low 2000 rpm. The turbo CR-V can reach 60 mph about 1.5 seconds quicker than a 2.4-liter LX, although the engine sounds harsh when accelerating hard.

The continuously variable transmission is the weakest link in CR-V, sluggish when accelerating at highway speeds. Pushing harder on the throttle to compensate causes it to jump to a lower ratio, not what the driver intended, an annoying trait.

Walk Around

The CR-V exudes a sense of upscale. It can be seen as stylish or quirky. Up front are aerodynamic LEDs, but the front bumper protrudes a bit, as if it weren’t part of the headlamp design. Upswept rear roof pillars continue a CR-V design theme that’s been going on for years. The taillights sit high, separated by a chrome strip on a tailgate with a curious bulge. The badging is oddly positioned.

Interior Overview

The layout of the cabin is more conventional than the outside styling, and it’s widely acclaimed. Five occupants enjoy room and comfort, surrounded by materials of high quality. For both passengers and cargo, the available space is used in an especially effective manner.

The 2017 redesign increased the cargo area by nearly a foot, without increasing the CR-V’s exterior length. In the back, legroom grew by 2 inches. And the rear seat is wider, making more room for the third passenger back there, always squeezed in a compact.

Pull a lever, and the adjustable second-row backrests fold totally flat, a convenient feature. A removable panel reveals a concealed, under-floor storage area.

All trim levels except the LX include a 12-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar support; however the wide center console may cut into the driver’s leg space.

Organized and functional, the dashboard reaches toward luxury in top-level Touring trim. CR-V EX and Touring editions rely more on their 7.0-inch touchscreen than on traditional switches or buttons. A new screen coating is used to resist fingerprints, and a volume-control knob has been added.

The navigation system is one of the easiest to use. Inputting an address is as easy as typing it in on a computer. However the system in our test car sometimes dropped the destination when stopping and restarting the car, forcing a laborious re-entry.

Summary

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

The Honda CR-V is one of the best of the many compact crossover SUVs, a leader in cabin space, refinement and comfort. Handling is good, ride quality is very good. The base CR-V LX is nicely equipped, however its 2.4-liter engine is considerably slower than the EX and other models with the smaller but more powerful turbocharged engine. The CVT is the weak link here, with a hesitation when you most need a quick response.
