Colourful character in a muted part of the market
All-new CR-V is a big step up. Not perfect, but a worthy rival to the best in this class
A far-reaching facelift has improved it, but it's still not a match for the class best. At least you can now justify it.
A household appliance of a car, but easy to live with and well priced.
Better than before with faint Lexus stylings on the exterior but still not very interesting. At all. There are better options.
Sharper looks, better quality interior and greener engines. Still average, though, and there are more able models on the market.
