Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Honda CR-V

  • The 2012 CR-V pleases on paper and remains a refreshingly competent entry in a dull segment.

    - Car and Driver
  • Pros: Lots of room for passengers and cargo; high fuel economy; user-friendly controls; ample tech and family-friendly features; nimble handling.

  • The new CR-V is exactly what it needs to be: another heart-of-market people-mover that'll sell hundreds of thousands of copies to buyers who rank fuel economy and versatility above all else. For that, Honda's nailed it again.

What reviewers liked least about the Honda CR-V

  • The downside is that the CR-V remains among the slowest in its class. The Honda's ratios make it feel even slower than its predecessor...

    - Car and Driver
  • The most significant letdown in the 2012 Honda CR-V is the way it steers. Honda has fitted an electric power steering system to the CR-V, and in this vehicle it fails to give the new model the confident handling feel that we expect from Honda.

Honda CR-V Comparisons

  • As with last year's model, the 2012 Honda CR-V's biggest weakness is the fact that it's available only with a four-cylinder engine; most rivals offer an optional V6.

  • The CR-V is also still louder inside than the competition; there's too much engine vibration in the cabin at idle...

    - Motor Trend
  • 12 years have passed, and the CR-V really isn't that much different from its first iteration, a rare quality in a segment where everyone from Ford to Kia to Mazda is trying to re-invent the segment. Avant-garde styling, high-tech engines and motion-activated tailgate sensors are all well and good, but the CR-V continues to be the [strong seller]...don't look for that to stop any time soon.

    - The Truth About Cars

Best one-liner about the Honda CR-V

  • The new CR-V is a lot like the old one, only less ugly.

    - Car and Driver
  • The 2012 CR-V will give loyalists everything they loved about the old model, plus a little more.
