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

It’s not that the ASX is truly bad by any stretch of the imagination, it’s just that its competition is newer. And better.

Expensive, slow, horrid to drive. A mass of metal without sense or relish or ability or anything, really.
