A used Honda CR-V is one of the more popular choices in the used car market. Quality and reliability are the hallmarks of any Honda model. Apart from this, the Honda CR-V happens to be one of the first small SUVs in the market, which in turn earned it good response and a favorable reputation. The Honda CR-V was introduced in 1996. While this vehicle does not boast of a very powerful engine with 126 hp, other features like low fuel consumption, its all-wheel drive, reliability and spacious interior make this car popular and customer friendly. Another favorable factor is its light weight unibody construction and the four-wheel independent suspension. This gives the Honda CR-V an easy car-like handling. For a mid-sized SUV, the cabin space and boot space can be considered excellent. The vehicle also features split-folding rear seats, which give the car an extra versatility and is advantageous to those looking for increased cargo space. The instrument panel with its easy to use controls, is well-designed and user friendly. The vehicle also has plenty of storage compartments, cup holders and a neat fold-out picnic table which you find under the trunk carpet. When looking for a used Honda CR-V for sale, it’s wiser to look for a petrol engine rather than a diesel one, as it makes more financial sense in the long run. While the choice of trims is rather limited, the basic SE is a sound choice, unless you’re looking for satellite navigation and leather upholstery which comes in the Executive model. The basic model features all round electric windows and air conditioning. The Sports upgrade trim comes equipped with alloy wheels, and the air-conditioning in this trim is upgraded to climate control.
