Our Verdict

The Honda CR-V is a well-known and popular SUV that has been around from over two decades and is regarded for its convenience, and feasibility. It wears the tag of being one of the first, original SUVs of its times. It recently saw a fourth iterative makeover, which definitely has not gone well with its fan base. Though, Honda has pretty much stuck to the original and not made major changes to its popular vehicle, still engine changes and design elements are seen. Even though a 4x4 drive, it is regarded as a soft-roader SUV which offers the comfort and handling of a sedan.
