The CR-V is one of the roomiest, most functional, and most well-equipped small SUVs. A 2015 freshening brought a new 185-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder and CVT, along with improved fuel economy. Also new are assorted active safety features, a top Touring trim with added equipment, and a distracting and difficult to use infotainment system on all but base versions. Handling is more responsive and secure, but the ride quality took a step backward, with bumps coming through in a more pronounced way. The interior is somewhat quieter than before. The rear seats are roomy, and folding them is a breeze. Small rear windows hurt the view out back, but the standard rear-view camera helps.

Road Test

There are good reasons Honda sells a lot of CR-Vs, among them, the compact SUV checks the main boxes most buyers are looking for in terms of affordability and functionality. Compact dimensions and responsive handling keep it maneuverable, easy to par...

Highs

  • Very spacious interior, with one of the roomiest rear seats in the class
  • Deep cargo area

Lows

  • Infuriating audio system on EX and higher trim levels
  • Stiff riding, especially in low speed urban environments

Best Version to Get

The best overall value is the EX trim level. That said, sticking with the LX skips over the very annoying touch-screen audio system, but you'll give up a lot of features.
