The Honda CR-V has to be one of the pioneers in the compact SUV segment. It’s been growing great with age and has picked up a more premium dimension. Honda have added just enough premium to make it standout, but not to lead in that respect. The great part of this premium feel is that no sacrifice has been made to make the CR-V lose its identity. The Honda is a five-door, five-seat SUV that is hailed for its reliability and practicality.
What’s in a Name?
You may wonder what the CR-V stands for, depending on whom you ask you’ll get a different answer. If you go through Honda’s press info you’ll find that the “CR-V” stands for “Comfortable Runabout Vehicle,” while if you are in the UK going through its sales literature it is coined as “Compact Recreational Vehicle.” Apart from these official names there are others out there who refer to it as the “Civic Recreational Vehicle.”
