    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.

    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.

    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.
