I am also happy to report that the engine feels very refined and has bags of torque available when you need it most, which makes motorway driving easy, quiet and unfussy.The HR-V will also return a combined 42.8 MPG if driven with a … [Read more...] about Motoring with Tony Yates – Honda HR-V 1.5 i-VTEC

Picture: HondaThe Honda CR-V was a ‘soft-roader’ pioneer but caused some bafflement when launched in the UK in 1997.The love affair with the SUV was not a spark, let alone being kindled, and a new SUV with only a 2.0-litre petrol engine, automatic gearbox and intelligent all-wheel drive was radical. Manuals soon followed, along with diesels and front-wheel drive.But the latest, all-new CR-V is back to petrol only, dumping diesel and also introducing the first hybrid and the option of sevens seats.Looks and imageEvolutionary styling cues are still big and bold.

Picture: Honda Honda Honda now offers a 1.6-litre diesel powertrain in its Civic alongside the 1.0 and 1.5-litre petrol models. Tom Wiltshire takes it for a spin. Bold styling makes Honda Civic stand out but could be divisive.

Even those who have served their time at Honda admit it can be the most exasperating company – engineering-led car makers tend to be like that. So on the glass half-empty side of the new CR-V is that this isn't actually a “new CR-V” at all. Honda's Compact Recreational Vehicle (who on earth writes these acronyms?) has been on sale in the US for almost two years. Nothing has changed aside from a few safety details. On the glass half-full side, however, is the fact that since Honda invented (along with Subaru) the “soft-roader” market in 1995, the CR-V has been the world's most popular SUV, and inspired such loyalty that as Phil Webb, Honda UK's head of cars, says: “When the new models go on sale our test drive numbers drop as people just want to check on the colour before placing their order.” I defer to Mumsnet on vehicles like this and after a detailed perusal, I can reveal that the website's correspondents still love the CR-V as a … [Read more...] about Honda CR-V review: the ‘compact recreational vehicle’ arrives in Britain, have rivals overtaken this former bestseller?
