There's more than enough performance to cope with most driving scenarios

Honda CR-V 1.6 i-DTEC

Behind the wheel you'll find the same comfortable and spacious .. interior

There's a welcome lack of body roll and the CR-V doesn't lurch around as some 4x4-style vehicles have been known to. Overall it's a stable, safe and generally well-balanced car that you'll quickly feel comfortable with. The manual gearbox has a snappy shift action that's a pleasure to use, too. Honda says the changes to the springs and dampers have resulted in a marginally less comfortable ride than other versions of the CR-V but that they felt the trade-off was worthwhile for the benefits in agility. Over some of the rougher sections of our test route, however, the ride quality felt more than adequate and certainly not uncomfortable.
