UK Drive: Honda’s updated CR-V stands out in a crowded market


What is it? The Honda CR-V has been around since 1995, and is now one of the world’s best-selling SUVs. It’s gone on to become sleeker, more efficient and quieter too. It’s now been updated for 2018, adding a more distinctive look as well as better levels of standard equipment and technology. Comfort is still the name of the game, though, just as it was with the original car back in ’95.

You could go down the Porsche Cayenne Turbo route, or even that of the Range Rover Sport SVR. However, if you want a performance diesel-powered off-roader, then there’s really only this – the Audi SQ7. It may be an oil burner, but it’s still capable of hitting 60mph in under five seconds – all while seating up to seven people in the utmost comfort. Here, we check out how it copes on UK roads.
