Although it does look a bit like Super Mario (it's the tache'), the CR-V is almost ideally suited to the utter insanity that motoring in 21st century Britain. It's tough, incredibly well built, huge inside and perfectly set up for school run. An excellent car in truth.
A great alternative to the Land Rover Freelander, Nissan X-Trail and VW Tigaun, the CR-V is also capable of besting premium SUVs such as the Lexus RX (which, in Japan, it is a rival to) and Audi Q3. Curiously classless to which makes it rather classy in our opinion.
Go diesel. Not something we often say but the 2.2 Honda lump is so good that it's hard not to recommend it. The petrol cars are much, much cheaper but they are nowhere near as good.
Go for simple ES spec - this has all you need and usually ES cars do without the daft big wheels that can ruin the otherwise excellent ride.
Pay £19,000 for a three year old car with no more than 20,000 miles on the clock.
The best time to buy is at three years. Depreciation on a diesel car is gentle. on petrol buy nearly new.
Used Car Expert recommends that you try to buy after a big drop in depreciation and before the next one, so with the current Honda Cr-V you would aim to buy a 6 year old and you can keep it for some time before needing to worry about a big drop in value.
Diesel Honda Cr-V cars lose most over the first year (from new to 1 year old), so that is the best ‘nearly new’ buy in terms of car for money.
Diesel Honda Cr-V cars lose least between years 1 and 3, so this is the best buy if you want to keep the car for a while.
Petrol Honda Cr-V cars lose least between years 2 and 4, so that is the best buy on older cars.
