Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

It may not be the most stylish of designs but the CR-V cabin is robust and well built - so will happily cope with plenty of abuse from the kids. Thanks to the raised height there's a good view forward and the steering wheel adjusts for both height and reach so finding the right driving position is simple. The view out of the back is restricted somewhat by the middle rear headrest, although the large mirrors help make up for this.

There's plenty of room for two in the back, but you can happily squeeze in three - although it would feel a little cramped on longer journeys. There's also lots of room up front and the seats are supportive too. The CR-V is quite refined on the motorway, although there is a little wind noise because of the height and the 2.0-litre petrol engine can become a bit raucous when it's pushed.
