The Honda CR-V was the Japanese company's first ever SUV, and it launched worldwide in 1996.
It's an important car for Honda sales wise, and it has served the company well over its first three generations. Locally, the fortunes of the brand have been on a downward trend, with the parent company still playing catch-up with model ranges after it reined in spending in the wake of the global financial crisis of the late-2000s. However, it has big plans for the fourth-generation CR-V, which ranges from range from $28,290 for the CR-V Vi (2WD) to $44,290 for the CR-V VTi-LX (AWD). Its main rivals include the Mazda CX-5 and Hyundai Tucson.
