5. Which Honda CR-V model year should you opt for?

Honda CR-V has been around for 20 years with numerous changes through 5 generations. Products of each phase, albeit following certain similar designs, boast different features focusing on distinctive demands of temporary societies. That’s why to decide which model year best suits your needs, it’s essential we look through some highlights of all generations.

First-gen Honda CR-V

CR-V was the first in-house designed SUV from this car manufacturer of Japan. In its home market, this automobile was considered luxury vehicle due to its exterior dimensions surpassing Japanese Government regulations.

The first-gen CR-V employed 2.0L straight-four B20B engine (later on B20Z) mated to both 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmission to produce 126 hp at max. The outer dimension of this engine is similar to Integra’s 1.8L mill.

Here we present the first-gen Honda CR-V!

CR-V chassis was a unibody design featuring a four-wheel double wishbone suspension. Plastic cladding was drastically utilized to cover both front/rear bumpers and fender wells.

Safety level of first-gen CR-V is not highly rated by Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as the dummy’s left leg had been broken during the test.

Second-gen Honda CR-V

The second-gen CR-V was developed into even bigger and heavier frame, staying in line with seventh generation Honda Civic. It was powered by the K24A1 engine and reached 160 hp at top speed.

Fuel economy rating stayed the same as previous models at 10L/100 km city and 8.4L/100 km highway thanks to the installation of i-VTEC system.

This generation gained Best Small SUV by Car and Driver magazine.

Also, the 2005 facelift featured positive modifications in both styling and safety content. New taillights and headlights were equipped with clear indicators. Either low or high beams received separate H1 bulbs. CR-V in the US and Canada adopted many safety features like anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, vehicle stability control, traction control and side airbags. Meanwhile, other markets may lack one or some features above.

Third-gen Honda CR-V

The third generation was released in 2007 with major changes in exterior design. The side-opening rear door was replaced by a rear liftgate while the spare tire was removed.

The year 2007 marked the turning point in CR-V design

To produce maximum 166 hp, CR-V for American market employed K-series 2.4L inline-four engine mated to 5-speed automatic and manual gearbox as in previous models. At the same time, a 2.2L i-CTDI diesel engine was offered for Europe and Asia-spec products.

Particularly, the Euro-spec CR-V adopted R20A 2.0L engine developed from Honda R-series i-VTEC SOHC engine.

Fourth-gen Honda CR-V

Not many changes in appearance, we must say, but the 2.4L i-VTEC inline-four engine could then produce up to 185 hp and 220 Nm at max along with all-new Real-Time AWD and intelligent control system.

Earth Dream engine was first applied to 4th-gen CR-V

Especially, the 2015 facelift introduced the direct injected “Earth Dream” and CVT (continuously variable transmission) powertrain option. This was actually released on Accord before and showed great improvement in EPA statistics.

Fifth-gen Honda CR-V

The fifth-gen Honda CR-V has just premiered in 2016 using the same compact platform as 10th-generation Civic.

The base model stays loyal to Earth Dream 2.4L I4 engine whereas the premium trims showcase a remarkable max speed of 190hp thanks to its 1.5L turbocharged I4 engine.

Test drive on the latest CR-V

These modern products come with special “Honda Sensing” package consisting of ACC (adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, CMBS (collision mitigation braking) and LKAS (lane keeping assist).

6. Honda CR-V 2008 - the model year that is especially sought-after

You’re just gone through brief summary of 5 CR-V generations, which phase would you opt for?

As for, we highly recommend third-gen Honda CR-V, especially model year 2008 due to certain reasons.

First, this generation marked an obvious transformation in styling design with the addition of rear liftgate without the spare tire. Second, the model year 2008 is the revised car of initial third-gen 2007 so it collects all merits and avoid possible faults of previous version. Third, though later generations prove more efficient, the difference is minor while the price gap is rather significant.

The last point is consumers’ opinions which all show a huge affection towards Honda CR-V 2008. Believe it or not, let’s take a look at its eye catching design and performance on road in the pictures below!
