This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Honda CR-V (07-12) review.

Parkers overall rating: 3.5 out of 5 3.5

The CR-V is one of the safer 4x4s around, with a four-star Euro NCAP crash test rating - good considering it was introduced in 2001. It comes with all modern safety features including front and side airbags, plus three-point seatbelts front and rear.

Some models have a dash-mounted coolbox (which can also get warm) that's ideal for snacks and drinks plus there's a table between the driver and front passenger which has cupholders and dividers and can be folded away when it's not in use. The boot is a good-size with more than 500 litres of luggage space - that's larger than alternatives like the Land Rover Freelander and Toyota RAV4.
