Honda CR-V VTi L AWD 2024 review: snapshot

EXPERT RATING
8.1
Honda has made the sixth-generation bigger than the old one and it now sits somewhere between the dimensions of a Toyota RAV4 and a Kia Sorento.

Honda has made the sixth-generation bigger than the old one and it now sits somewhere between the dimensions of a Toyota RAV4 and a Kia Sorento.

There are seven grades with a mix of front and all-wheel drive, petrol and hybrid and five and seven-seat model grades. 

Of the two all-wheel drive (AWD) grades, the VTi L AWD is the most affordable. Both of these AWD grades are five-seaters. 

All CR-Vs except the flagship e:HEV RS hybrid are powered by Honda’s 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine, delivering 140kW/240Nm and paired with a CVT.

The whole CR-V range is packed with standard gear, and the VTi L AWD adds a leather-appointed steering wheel with red stitching, and a few other flourishes over the model below it.

It also comes with a 9.0-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and wired Android Auto, power-adjustable driver's seat, drive-mode selector, wireless smartphone charger, a hands-free power tailgate with a walkaway close function, eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat, 18-inch alloys, leather-appointed seats, and a 7.0-inch driver display.

All CR-V grades come with a healthy standard safety features list, with the 'Honda Sensing' active safety suite including auto emergency braking, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, road departure mitigation, and active cruise control with low-speed follow, while traffic jam assist and traffic sign recognition are new to the suite.
