Honda CR-V

Expert Rating

3.0 (Good)

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Generations

Being a leader for numerous years in a segment is a tough thing to pull off, but the Honda CR-V continues to be the benchmark in the heavily contested compact crossover arena. Despite facing more competition than ever, the CR-V continues to come out on top thanks to a spacious cabin, good safety features, and punchy yet fuel-efficient powertrains. The 2019 Honda CR-V ticks all of the right boxes, which is what makes it such a well-rounded option.

Longer in wheelbase than before, the CR-V boasts crisper design elements, a relatively long hood, a broad stance, higher ground clearance, and shorter rear overhangs. Honda calls the fresh front-end look “windswept.” Stylized headlights are surrounded by a wing-shaped array of LED daytime running lights. Dual exhaust outlets are new for the Touring trim.

2013 - 2016 Honda CR-V

3/4 Front Glamour 2016 Honda CR-V

Major changes included:

The small-size crossover SUV market is flooded with a variety of attractive choices, but the Honda CR-V does a great job separating itself from its brethren. The CR-V was redesigned in 2012, and what worked last year continues to remain effective in 2013. Working the CR-V’s favor is Honda’s history of reliability and performance, and... Read more »

2002 - 2006 Honda CR-V

3/4 Front Glamour 2006 Honda CR-V

Major changes included:

Honda is treading on tender parchment with its new CR-V. Is it a yet another mini-sport utility? Or is it a revisionist/retro station wagon? Actually, it's neither. Or it's both, depending on your aesthetic/measurement. As such, it bests many of its immediate competitors in both qualitative and quantitative measures, while trailing in a few minor... Read more »

1997 - 2001 Honda CR-V

3/4 Front Glamour 2001 Honda CR-V

Major changes included:

In addition to booming, the sport-utility market is also evolving, and the new Honda CR-V is yet another proof. Like a number of current sport-utility vehicles, this appealing little four-door wagon wasn't designed to tackle tough terrain. That's because most sport-utilities rarely leave the pavement, let alone venture into tough terrain. For most of us,... Read more »
