Let us help you take the next step

Honda offers eight CR-V variants, with prices ranging from $28,290 before on-road costs for the base Vi to $44,290 before on-roads for the all-wheel drive VTi-LX.

The other engine is a 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder. Although it’s smaller than the base engine, the turbocharged motor offers 140kW and 240Nm.

It’s also paired with a CVT as standard, and buyers can choose between front– or allwheel drive.

It returns 7.6L/100km on the combined cycle, while the smaller 1.5-litre engine offers claimed economy of 7.0L/100km.


The CR-V has a five-star safety rating from ANCAP, on the back of testing conducted in 2017.

Base models miss out on autonomous emergency braking and lane-keeping assist, although it is available on all-wheel drive variants.


The 2020 Honda CR-V measures 4596mm long, 1855mm wide and 1689mm tall, with a 2660mm wheelbase.

Boot space is listed at 522L with the rear seats in place, and 1084L with them folded.

Servicing takes place every 12 months or 10,000km – whichever comes first.

Each of the first 10 services is priced at $312, which means the first five years of maintenance costs a total of $1560 regardless of which model you select.

The CR-V is backed by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.
