The all-new CR-V is finally here, and thankfully, it has a diesel option that’s making people go stark mad with excitement. It will straddle the compact and pickup-based SUV segments, being a seven-seater. This is a soft-roader still, but with the vast majority of SUVs never seeing dirt beyond a gravel parking lot, the CR-V is definitely an option worth considering. It is Gen’s first choice because the size is manageable for her. She likes the diesel option, too, and the price is well within her budget. And let’s not forget Honda’s excellent reliability and after-sales track record to boot.
diesel power; roomy, versatile, and stylish interior; loaded with high-tech toys
relatively limited availability; long queue; not as good-value as other competitors
