Description:
Pros:
  • Roomy cabin and cargo areas
  • Simple layout of buttons and controls
  • Attractive coupe style
  • Impressive safety and crash test ratings
  • Smooth powertrain that gets good fuel economy
Cons:
  • Limited to one engine choice
  • Excessive road noise at highway speeds
  • Plain-Jane exterior styling
  • Bluetooth not available with all trims
Ruling: The always practical Honda CR-V ranks low on the fun-meter, but it has a roomy, versatile interior and excellent safety ratings. The CR-V only offers one engine, a 180hp 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that is rated to get 21 city/28 hwy, but power delivery is smooth and very serene.

CarReview's opinion of the 2011 Honda CR-V

Likes:
  • Conservative styling
  • Good trunk space for a compact crossover
  • Decent MPG
Dislikes:
  • Nav/Entertainment unit with interface from 1985
  • Tight rear seat
  • Bo…yawn…ring styling
  • Tailgate “lip” gets in the way
Verdict: The Honda CR-V is one of the best selling compact crossovers in America, competing with the likes of Ford Escape, Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, and the new Kia Sportage, just to name a few. The 2011 Honda CR-V is neither the best deal nor the best-equipped. It is certainly not the prettiest or the most exciting to drive. It does offer decent power and handling, and good cargo space, as well as options like a rearview camera. But you can get that with the myriad other compact crossover SUVs out there and you can get a lot more style for the same money. If your mind is set on a Honda for its reputation of reliability and resale value, however, you may want to wait just a few more months for the brand new 2012 CR-V. I saw a leaked sketch of it and it looks a lot more exciting than the current one.
