Very happy with the CRV so far, and as this is my third overall, I think I'm well placed to say the 2020 model is definitely the best. One exemption however is that the voice of the in-built sat nav is very low and hard to hear. Especially apparent on motorways where you can hear virtually nothing of what is said. I contacted Honda UK customer services who were very unhelpful. The stated they were aware of the problem and other customers had complained but Honda tests showed the sound to be within an acceptable range. They stated it was not a fault as I suggested but within it’s design. Very surly call handler, not what I expected from Honda.

For a 1.5L Turbo this car is nippy and very comfortable on Motorways.
Running Cost

3 out of 5

If you are looking for economy then forget this car. 26-28mpg locally and 34-36mpg on motorways.

Somewhat disappointed with this CRV. The fuel economy is no better than my last, 2-litre CRV. The service interval sensor means it needs a visit to the dealer every 6,000 miles or so. I presume this is a reaction to the North American petrol/oil contamination issues of earlier cars, but 6 month servicing is ridiculous in this day and age. The cruise, radar system is OK at best, downright dangerous at worst and cannot be cancelled. How I haven't had someone hit me up the rear when the car decides to suddenly brake from 48 to 32mph because a car has turned off the A3 onto a slip road is a miracle! On the plus side, build quality and looks are good.
