BY STEVE WALKER
By the time Honda launched its third generation CR-V towards the latter stages of 2006, its task of remaining at the top of the compact 4x4 sales charts was looking massively more difficult. Not that Honda had taken its eye off the ball with the product: the CR-V was better than ever. The problem was that so many other manufacturers were now pulling out all the stops to cash in on the compact 4x4 boom. It wasn't long before virtually every single big name car brand had a small off-roader on its books. The CR-V had been one of a select breed: now it was going to have to fight it out amongst the masses. The CR-V had established a profitable position for itself in the marketplace since the first generation car arrived in 1997. If anything, Honda's offering was ahead of its time in that it made little pretence of being any good in the rough stuff. Instead, it concentrated on providing customers with a high level of ride and handling on the road plus a family-friendly interior design. The second generation model of 2002 barely deviated from this formula and neither did this Mk3 model. It's just that by 2006, the public were far better catered for with regard to small road-biased 4x4s. The CR-V had a fight on its hands.
Models Covered: 5 dr 4x4, [2.0 i-VTEC/2.2 i-CTDi, SE, ES, EX]
The CR-V arrived in December 2006 with a pair of engines, one petrol and one diesel, and a trio of trim levels. Its key rivals were the Nissan X-Trail and Toyota RAV-4, two models that had been major players in the compact 4x4 market for a long time. Before too long, however, CR-V customers also had the likes of Citroen's C-Crosser, Peugeot's 4007, Mitsubishi's Outlander, Vauxhall's Antara, Chevrolet's Captiva, Renault Koleos, Volkswagen's Tiguan and the Ford Kuga to consider. Choice for the compact 4x4 customer had reached a zenith.
If standing out in amongst a crowd of similar compact 4x4 models was the CR-V's toughest task, it got off to a good start on the styling front. The coupe-like window-line isn't what you expect to see on a compact 4x4 and the way it parts company with the roof-line towards the rear of the car is certainly novel. The stance is low slung and hunched while the front end is very distinctive, with an unusual 'smiling' grille section that fits flush to the projector-style headlamps. A choice between 17 and 18-inch alloy wheels also underscored the Honda's on-road mission. Other 4x4 cues were also ditched, one by one. The tail-mounted spare wheel was excised, replaced by one that sits under the load compartment floor. The tailgate also opened like a conventional hatchback - side openings obviously having been deemed a little passe. The internal dimensions aren't far removed from the Mk2 CR-V, a car which always was one of the more spacious compact 4x4s. Load space was increased, despite the internally housed spare, while access was improved by bigger doors that open wider. The interior features metallic elements on the dash with soft textured black trim, while the front seats cater for this nation's ever-expanding posteriors, being larger and more comfortable than on the previous model. The CR-V features a gear lever at the base of the centre stack, brought closer to the steering wheel, creating more floor space. Equipment levels are generous with an eight-way powered driver's seat, leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera offered according to trim level. The rear seats split 60:40 at the base and 40:20:40 at the back and slide back and forth to maximise either leg or luggage room. They even recline to really let rear passengers flake out on longer trips. When not required, the rear seats can be tumbled forwards and stowed upright to create a space big enough for a pair of mountain bikes. You won't even need to remove the front wheels. Extra versatility is served up with the 'Double Deck' luggage storage system created by a shelf that sits just over a foot off the load floor. This hinged slab allows luggage below to remain easily accessible but out of view.

Honda's output isn't known for niggling faults or mechanical mishaps and the CR-V should be as reliable a compact 4x4 as you'll find. Very few of these vehicles will have been driven off-road but there may be a few rogue examples out there. To be sure, check the underside of the car for knocks and scrapes.
(approx based on an '07 CR-V 2.0 i-VTEC SE) A whole headlamp unit for your CR-V will set you back around £200. A radiator retails for £150 whilst an alternator is £300 and a replacement starter motor will cost £240. Front brake pads are £50 for a pair whilst an exhaust system costs £400. A replacement catalyst is £450.
The CR-V's two engine options are out of the top draw. The petrol powerplant is a 2.0-litre i-VTEC unit pumped up to produce 150bhp. It'll get to 60mph in a respectable 9.9 seconds if you choose the manual transmission, the five-speed auto model lagging with an 11.9 second showing against the watch. Peak power arrives at a nosebleed 6,200rpm, so you'll need to rev this thing to make progress and if you're loaded down with people and gear, the modest 190Nm torque figure may well prompt you to look at the diesel engine. This is the celebrated 2.2-litre i-CTDI diesel good for 140bhp but with a generously stuffed 340Nm of torque. If you're planning on towing anything, look no further than this unit. It's also probably the most refined diesel engine of its era. Take a look under the CR-V and you'll spot independent suspension all round with a multilink rear set-up. The centre of gravity of this model was dropped by fully 35mm compared to the Mk2 car and Honda claimed to have benchmarked the best family hatchbacks (rather than other 4x4s) when it came to handling. Forget the cumbersome roly-poly road manners and ponderous ride quality still common to some cars in this class. The CR-V was engineered to be pin sharp straight out of the box. This matters. It matters because, if you're honest with yourself, you'll probably never take a small 4x4 like this off road anyway. And, above all, it matters because the CR-V corners more crisply and safely than most of the alternatives in the market. Despite the best efforts of the Romans, our roads tend to be very twisty. One criticism that could be levelled relates to the ride which is noticeably firmer than some of the alternatives but most would happily put up with this in exchange for the alert handling of the CR-V. The CR-V can handle gentle off-road tracks thanks to its four-wheel drive system but think of this as an all-wheel drive equipped car rather than a 'proper' SUV. The system was tweaked a little to direct even more torque to the rear wheels when the front wheels start slipping. This is actually handier if you're planning to use the CR-V in bad weather conditions or on an Alpine skiing jaunt.
If you're looking for a used compact 4x4 in the Mk3 Honda CR-V's age and price bracket, you'll have a lot of other models to choose from. You'll stick with the Honda if you like the unorthodox styling and the crisp handling and you need the practical interior. The ride can be a little harsh over bumpy surfaces and the CR-V is not a vehicle you should buy to drive off-road but otherwise it ticks most of the boxes. Particularly with the 2.2-litre i-CTDi diesel installed, this CR-V is a polished performer.

In 2015, Honda's fourth generation CR-V evolved into something cleverer, classier and much more efficient. Targeting family Crossover models as well as small lifestyle-orientated SUVs, it's a strong package if you're looking at petrol power or an entry-level 2WD diesel. What changed with the post-2015-era facelift though was that buyers got the option of hi-tech automatic transmission and the more sophisticated pairing of high performance diesel power and 4WD. In other words, in this guise, the CR-V sharpened-up its act. As a result, it's a hard car not to like as a used buy.
5dr compact 4x4 (2.0 petrol, 1.6 diesel 120/160PS [S, SE, SR, EX])
How do you right a best seller? Back in 2015, this was Honda's answer to that question when it came to the fourth generation version of their CR-V, the company's mid-sized SUV model, a car that has frequently been the strongest selling model of its kind in the world. By 2015, it had already found over five million global buyers over two decades in over 160 countries, with over 750,000 examples sold in Europe since an original launch in 1997. This updated design wasn't radically different from the original MK4 version we first saw towards the end of 2012, but the changes Honda made to it were nonetheless significant - as was necessary in a segment that by the time of this model's launch was saturated with clever rivals. So customers were brought a smarter shape, a classier cabin, more efficient engines, stronger safety and extra hi-tech equipment. At the time of this revised MK4 model's introduction though, the headache for Honda was that all of its obvious competitors in this sector had recently launched rival models claiming much the same. Which perhaps explains why this isn't a car that jumps out at you from the spec sheet. No. You have to drive it. Use it. Fill it with family. Many of those experienced in doing just that probably won't even look at the alternatives before replacing their second, third or early fourth generation CR-Vs with this improved MK4 model. It does, after all, offer a depth of engineering that some other rivals just don't have - though there's some difficulty in determining just which kinds of cars these are. Mid-sized soft roading SUVs like Toyota's RAV4 are an obvious target, but when this car was new. Honda also believed that lower-order CR-Vs would appeal to buyers looking at slightly more affordable Qashqai-class Crossover models. And hoped that plusher versions of this car would even attract folk who might be looking at a pricier premium mid-sized SUV with a prestigious badge on the bonnet. In all these objectives, the brand's cause was helped by the introduction of Honda's award-winning 120PS 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine, also available in pokier 160PS guise to drive 4x4 diesel models and interest folk shopping at the premium end of the spectrum. Honda also targeted these kinds of people with a higher-tech 9-speed automatic gearbox option and a much smarter cabin. This facelifted MK4 model CR-V sold until mid-2017, when an all-new MK5 CR-V model range was announced.
This facelifted MK4 model has a very CR-V-style look and feel but has a front end that adopts a more dynamic, planted stance than earlier models, changes over the original fourth generation design including redesigned headlamps flanked by LED daytime running lights flowing into a smarter grille. As usual with this model line, it's very practical inside. Pull a little fabric handle on the seat base (or either of the cargo sidewall levers in the luggage bay) and the seat base tumbles forward, the seat back dips down and the rear headrest tucks in snugly. This has to be one of the cleverest seat-folding mechanisms around from SUVs in this era, a lovely piece of engineering that leaves the seats folded completely flat - the kind of thing you'd find useful day in, day out. So this car's easy to live with - and comfortable to drive too. We particularly like the way that the gear stick is located just a few inches from the steering wheel for snickety-quick changes. The key change though with this revised MK4 model lay with the addition of a larger 7-inch 'Honda CONNECT' colour infotainment touchscreen. Provided you avoid entry-level trimmed variants, you'll find that this Android-based set-up is standard across the range, controlling stereo and informational functions, dealing with the optional Garmin sat nav system and providing full internet browsing when you're stationary.
Prices start from around £11,300 for this facelifted fourth generation model, a sum that gets you the popular 1.6-litre DTEC diesel in base 'S'-spec 120PS form. Values for this variant rise to around £15,400 for a later '17-era model. Add around £3,500 to these values if you want the same engine with a plusher 'SR' level of trim, which comes with navigation. If you're interested in the 1.6-litre DTEC diesel engine with 4WD, you'll need the perkier 160PS version of this engine; values for this start at around £14,000 for a base 'SE'-spec model with a '15-era plate, with values rising to around £19,100 for a later '17-era car. Add around £400 to these values if you want your 4WD diesel CR-V to have navigation, around £2,000 more if you want the plusher 'SR Nav' trim level or around £3,500 more if you want the top 'EX Nav' variant. Should you want a petrol-powered facelifted fourth generation CR-V, values start from around £12,800 for a '15-era 2.0 i-VTEC model with base 'S' trim, with values rising to around £17,300 for a later '17-era car. Add around £400 to these values if you want a base 'S'-spec 2.0-litre petrol model with navigation - or around £1,500 more if you want plusher 'SE' trim. If you want an 'SE' 4x4 petrol model, you'll need to add around £2,500 to the values we've quoted, while for an 'SR 4x4', you'll need to add around £4,500 more.
A number of things came out of our CR-V ownership survey. Transmission problems were reported by some; electrical issues by others. Check both these things out on your test drive. We came across a report of a groaning noise from the rear differential heard while going through turns - caused by differential fluid break down. Worn door lock tumblers can cause the door lock to be sticky - or not work at all. In one instance, the gear knob fell off. In another, the car had a tendency to stall during gear changes. One owner found green lines appearing in the digital dash display when the vehicle was parking in very cold conditions. Honda's CR-V has racked up an impressive reliability record. Very few of these vehicles will have been driven off-road but there may be a few rogue examples out there. To be sure, check the underside of the car for knocks and scrapes. Make sure there's life in the clutch and that the tyres are in good condition and check for tired front dampers on diesels. The interiors look to have proven tough thus far. Honda's reliability record looks set to carry on being a target that many other car manufacturers benchmark. It's possible that the vehicle you're looking at may have been used for towing, which could have put extra strain on the clutch. If the car you're considering has a tow-bar fitted and it looks to have been used, make sure you check how the clutch engages during your test drive, as replacing the clutch and flywheel can get very expensive.
(approx based on a 2015 CR-V 1.6 DTEC 120PS ex VAT) An air filter for this CR-V will set you back between £10 and £16; a fuel filter will be around £30 and an oil filter will be between £5 and £10. Front brake pads will be in the £28-£35 bracket, though you could pay up to around £62 for pricier brands. Rear brake pads will be in the £20-£35 bracket, though you could pay up to around £52 for pricier brands. Front brake discs will be in the £78-£93 bracket, though you could pay up to around £100-£140 for pricier brands. Rear brake discs will be in the £30-£42 bracket, though you could pay up to around £70 for pricier brands. Front brake callipers are around £180, while a set of rear callipers will be around £252. Wiper blades cost in the £10-£13 bracket.
With this facelifted fourth generation CR-V, i-DTEC power is developed from a smaller, more efficient 1.6-litre engine. You get it with 160PS mated exclusively with 4WD. Or with 120PS mated exclusively with 2WD. The pokier unit has the best power-to-consumption ratio in its segment from this era and is the only engine in the range that gives you the option of the other key development added into this improved MK4 model, Honda's nine-speed auto transmission. We should also point out that in this guise, the CR-V range continued to offer buyers a petrol option. The engine in question is the same 155PS 2.0 i-VTEC unit used in the original version of this model and, like the majority of Honda petrol powerplants, responds best if you put a few revs on the board. As with previous CR-V models, the 4x4 set-up in this one favours is what the brand calls a 'Real Time AWD system': in other words, it's one of those arrangements that sends drive to the front wheels nearly all the time, pushing torque rearwards only when a loss of traction is detected. In that situation, there's no need to mess about with extra gear levers or buttons: everything's done for you. Of far more relevance though is the way this car drives on ordinary everyday tarmac, capability Honda tried hard to sharpen up with this revised model. The result is a machine beautifully fit for purpose.
It's easy to imagine yourself as target market for a car like this CR-V. You've a couple of kids, an active lifestyle, a need to haul things around and an aversion to rather dull large estate cars. The thing is though, you've also an aversion to the kind of RAV4-style mid-sized SUV soft roaders that such a mind set would normally direct you towards. Understandably perhaps, you think they're all rather pretentious and silly. But this car isn't, an SUV for.. people who really don't like SUVs. A car for people who look at what a vehicle can do for them rather than what it says about them. End use you see, has been the over-riding design parameter here, not cutting edge styling, clever gadgetry, irrelevant pin-sharp handling or pointlessly powerful engines. As a result, it's an extremely easy thing to live with, the kind of car you'll own, then wonder how you managed without. That may not be a recipe for media headlines but it's an approach that other brands could certainly learn from, explaining why so many CR-Vs are bought by folk who previously owned one. These are people who'll heartily approve of the changes that Honda made to this improved fourth generation version - the smarter looks, extra connectivity, classier feel and, most importantly, the much more efficient way it lets you enjoy diesel power with 4WD. All of these allowed this CR-V to reach out beyond its traditional customer base - and make it a good used buy today. In summary, what we have here is a car that can't quite pigeonhole itself in any of the market categories you might search in to find potential rivals - Qashqai-like Crossovers, RAV4-style practical mid-sized SUVs and BMW X3 and Audi Q5-like premium mid-sized SUVs. Yes, there are elements of all these kinds of cars in this Honda's make-up but ultimately, it remains distinctively different, distinctively. CR-V. Which ultimately, might very well be all you need.
