Used Honda CR-V for sale
The Honda CR-V is a large SUV that's practical, reliable and comes with a range of technology, making it suitable for a wide variety of tasks. Due to its larger dimensions, the CR-V is a great alternative to the Honda Civic and HR-V if you're after something with more space and a big-car feel.
Plenty of people are leaning towards SUV ownership nowadays, meaning the market is highly competitive and options are endless. But a used Honda CR-V can hold its own as it comes with a range of great features, such as:
- Intelligent hybrid powertrains on offer
- High safety rating
- Comfortable ride
- Roomy interior
- Four-wheel drive available
Engines and Driving Experience
If you go for more recent models of the CR-V you won't have a choice of engine as it's only available with one - a 2.0-litre petrol hybrid that produces a total power output of 181bhp and a 0 to 62mph time of 8.6 seconds. Both four-wheel and front-wheel drive are available, giving you the choice dependent upon your needs.
If you're not quite convinced by hybrid powertrains just yet, opting for an older model will give you access to various diesel and petrol specifications. None of the engines are particularly thrilling in terms of performance, but they do return good fuel economy figures which is ideal for trips away with the family, or the daily commute.
These journeys will also be made more enjoyable thanks to the CR-V's ride. The soft suspension and high ride height ensure it can deal with the usual imperfections of British roads.
Practicality and Running Costs
Large SUVs are renown for their high levels of practicality and the CR-V is no different. With good head and legroom throughout, even taller occupants will be left with little to complain about. When loading luggage, you'll be working with a 499-litre boot space, but folding the 60/40 split-folding rear seats gives you access to a whopping 1,694 litres of room.
The wide-opening rear doors make fitting a child seat to the ISOFIX mounting points a doddle. The CR-V is also capable of towing up to 750kg (braked), which is considerably less than some rivals, but still useful when needed.
Big cars often demand a higher premium when getting insured, but the CR-V resides in a reasonable range between groups 22 and 25 (out of 50) dependent upon specification. Low-cost servicing and maintenance can also be completed at your local Evans Halshaw dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
When behind the wheel, there'll be little to complain about thanks to the well laid out and easy-to-use dashboard. Honda have provided you with plenty of physical buttons as opposed to a dominant touchscreen, allowing you to keep maximum focus on the road and adjust settings by feel. Other features can be found on used examples, such as a panoramic roof, to enhance overall feel of the cabin.
The entry-level S comes with tech such as LED headlights and a small 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, but opting for a higher specification such as the EX may see you receive other gadgets like GARMIN navigation and a head up display.
Euro NCAP awarded the CR-V with the full five-star safety rating when it underwent their rigorous testing procedures thanks to a range of available safety equipment, including:
- Blind Spot Information including Cross Traffic Monitor
- Forward Collision Warning
- Lane Keep Assist System
- Rear View Camera
- Front and Rear Parking Sensors
Is the Honda CR-V right for me?
If you're after a safe and highly dependable large SUV then the Honda CR-V is a great choice. Its comfortable ride and good levels of technology also allow you to enjoy being behind the wheel while your passengers relax in their generous amount of head and legroom.
However, rivals such as the Kia Sorento and Skoda Kodiaq do offer seating for up to seven people and are capable of towing more weight than the CR-V. The Audi Q7 and BMW X5 are more premium and offer an unmatched level of luxury, but they do come at a higher premium of course.
