Honda CR-V 1.5 Turbo 7 Seater Review
Comfortable Re-Creation for Seven

12 Dec 2017

and yes, you do get a (real) tail pipe, one on each side

The new Honda CR-V presents an attractive option to those who might be looking for a MPV alternative.  While the engine offerings are just down to one choice of a new turbocharged 1.5 litre unit, it is in our lens a good call by Honda, given the current trend of right-sizing engines, for reasons of fuel efficiency.


Right-sized engine no doubt, but the CR-V has been “right-sized” the other direction to house seven occupants. Up in the front, there is plenty going on with the split front grille and well-styled LED headlamps. Honda had not scrimped on the chromed trim with the side trim. With plenty of black trim surrounding the base of the car, and the black wheel arches add to the rugged appeal, while fender flares in-turn, beefs up the CR-V’s styling.

At the rear, a high waistline, together with wide shoulders, and L-shaped tail lamps running up the C pillar, increases the visual girth of the car, and yes, you do get a (real) tail pipe, one on each side.

Visually, the 235/60 tyres on 18-inch rims are rather chubby visually, but this car has to be a people carrier, and the tyres would need to do the job of adding to passenger comfort.

Sold my car withing a few days. Fast process. However, be ready for dealers to slash price saying need to change tyre, need to repaint, etc during viewing.
