About The Honda CR-V

Vehicle Summary

The Honda CR-V is a five-passenger compact crossover SUV which launched in 2016 and is currently in its fifth generation. Striking a balance between passenger car and utility vehicle, it is perfect for urban dwellers — particularly young families who have to contend with narrow roads and tight parking spaces in the city. 

The CR-V is jam-packed with features; notable ones in the fifth generation (2016–present) include the availability of a turbocharged engine (on EX trim and above), the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assist technologies (EX and above), and full-time all-wheel drive (on all trims). Meanwhile, the interior benefits from an optional seven-inch touchscreen Display Audio infotainment system that is Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ compatible.

4.5 out of 5 (404 reviews)

Fantastic t All Around Car

Its very fun to drive! It drives like a car! I get 25 mpg and wow!! That’s great fuel economy for a non hybrid car! The back up camera is so helpful and it can show a top down view and a wide angle view and the lines move when you turn the car which is helpful! I am in love with the audio system!! It has a 7 speaker audio system with a subwoofer!! The bass is really punchy and you can feel it in your chest!! The audio system is loud and for the most part crisp and clear! There’s also Bluetooth which is such a lifesaver with an iPhone that doesn’t have a headphone jack. The lanewatch camera which is a camera on the passenger side is nice to have. The leather seats are perforated so they’re cool in the hot summer months and just feel premium!

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Its 25 mpg so that’s really good for a non hybrid car! I can spend more time driving and less time at the gas station!
  • Reliability: Honda’s are known for being reliable and this one is no exception! Its gonna last a long time without major problems.
  • Technology and Entertainment: It has Bluetooth and a backup camera which are both super nice and essential to have! There’s also a 7 speaker audio system with a subwoofer!

Very disappointing car

This car has only one good feature, and that is the peppy four-cylinder turbo engine. It provides both good acceleration and good gas mileage. Everything else is terrible. Seats are very uncomfortable, especially for tall people. The electronic touchscreen is a complete catastrophe. Most of its functions are hard to find and understand, and many of them don't work. Also there are numerous safety hazards in this car. The other day I was driving on the freeway at 60 mph. I heard a beeping noise and couldn't figure out what it was, Suddenly I realized the tailgate was opening -- on the freeway at 60 mph! I pulled over and closed it. Fortunately the parcels I had in the back didn't fall out. I sent that one in to NHTSA. You are crazy if you buy this car.

Pros

  • Power: Turbo engine provides good power.

Cons

  • Dashboard: Electronic touchscreen panel is a total disaster.

- Dan Brini, 2017 Honda CR-V

the first price was good

i like the Honda, this is my first. I've had 2 Toyota's, 2 Mustangs, 2 Chevy's, and now this Honda. the 1 thing i would like to change is the stepping into the car. Its had for me to get in. I like the other style better. For the price of my car repair i could l have bought a brand new one. But this is hind sight. We can't live that way. So I will hope for the best and that i will get the 300K miles out of this car that most Honda's give.

Pros

  • Cargo Space: some of my riders have large suitcases. they fit well.
  • Fuel Economy: good gas millage

Cons

  • Cost to Maintain: this is a big ticket for me right now. '-(
  • Power: I'm a Uber driver, after 16,000 miles, it quit on me. Its in the shop, costing me $6200
