Honda CR-V 2018
Carsguide CarsGuide Editor Malcolm Flynn had this to say at the time: When the safety update does arrive, the VTi-S will be a near-perfect choice for my family at least, and likely well worth the expected price rise. In the meantime, we’ll be trying to squeeze our lives into the very exciting Golf R wagon. Keep an eye out for that one.You can read the full review here.
This is what Malcolm Flynn liked most about this particular version of the Honda CR-V: Excellent practicality for two babies, All-round driveability, Full-size spare and runs on 91 unleaded

Honda CR-V 2018 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Honda CR-V 2018 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Toyota Kluger: What SUV would have less cabin noise?
So many things affect road noise, which makes it difficult to fix. There’s the road surface itself, the tyres, and the noise insulation in the vehicle. The Honda CR-V might well be quieter, but could still be noisy on the roads you drive on. If the road noise is the thing that is making you switch vehicles, then it might be worth talking to a tyre dealer about a tyre that might be quieter than the ones on your Kluger. If you want to go down that road, you could try a Mazda CX-5 or CX-7, a Kia Sorento or Sportage, Toyota RAV4.
Honda CR-V 2018: Does my car need an oil change?
There doesn’t appear to be anything in your regular driving routine that is out of the ordinary, nothing that would demand more frequent oil changes. I would question the advice you have been given by the dealer and Honda, and I would ask that the oil monitoring system be checked to see that it isn’t giving false readings.
Is the Honda CR-V good in the snow?
Yes, provided you drive to the conditions. This answer assumes the Honda CR-V in question has good tyres, has been serviced (including having wheel alignments), and is driven with care. The all-wheel-drive (AWD) models will be vastly more suited to driving in snow (or sand, mud and dirt) than two-wheel-drive models which only power the front wheels.
Honda CR-V or Hyundai i30: Which should I buy?
That's a fascinating pair of options April, but both are indeed very good cars. It's a struggle to match the official fuel consumption figures with any new car, but I've just spent three months living with the VTi-S and experienceced an 8.5L/100km average with largely urban and loaded driving, which was better than the Tiguan 2.0-litre, Escape 1.5 and CX-5 2.5 litre I've lived with previously. So you'll have to work hard to get worse than that figure. The extra space of the Honda is a big drawcard, but you'll have to judge that for yourself. My only real gripe with the VTi-S is the lack of active safety gear like AEB, which is set to be rectified with an updated version in future. The i30 SR comes with all the important safety gear standard.
