Honda CR-V 2021 Seats

If you choose any model in the 2021 Honda CR-V range that has a '7' as part of its name, you'll be getting a seven seater. If you don't need three rows, the other five versions of the CR-V will suit you, as they're all five seaters.

The seven seat model has a penalty to pay in terms of boot space: Five-seaters run with 522L (VDA) cargo capacity, while the third row eats into the boot space to a decent degree, allowing just 472L (VDA). There is some storage behind the rearmost seats when they're in use, with 150L (VDA) available. All models come with a full size spare alloy wheel under the boot floor, though - well done on the packaging, Honda!

Honda CR-V 2021 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Honda CR-V here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Honda CR-V 2020: Should I buy AWD?

    It’s a fact that the top-rung version of a particular make and model will not only get all the luxury and convenience items, it’ll also usually be the first to score new safety tech, too. That’s why CarsGuide gives car-makers a pat on the back when they make new safety gear standard across the whole range. However, that’s the exception rather than the rule here, and most car-makers, including the ones you’ve mentioned have the same policy of loading up the more expensive variants in their line-up.

    But before you dismiss all-wheel-drive as something you have to pay for to get better safety gear, understand that AWD itself is a safety boost. The extra grip given by driving all four wheels makes a car safer in all conditions, but especially in low-friction conditions. So, if safety is a concern (and it obviously is for you, Mark) then I reckon AWD is for you anyway.

    Besides which, even though you’ve said you only driver to the snow every now and then, when those times arrive, you’ll be very pleased you paid for AWD.

  • Should I buy a Toyota RAV4 or a Honda CR-V?

    You really need to go out and test drive both vehicles, because they both have their plusses and minuses and those will be graded according to your personal preferences. Overall, the RAV4 is a bigger vehicle (almost as big as the original Kluger, in fact) so that might come into the reckoning based purely on the size of your parking space at home.

    The RAV4 rides a bit more softly but your choice of the range-topping VTi-LX in the Honda is a good one because that’s the only model in the line-up that includes autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping and adaptive cruise-control. That said, the RAV4 has all those features, too, but extends them to the bulk of the models offered, not just the top-spec version.

    On warranty and fuel economy, both compare pretty closely, so it will come down to the little things that you personally find important; things like the Honda’s doors that open almost to 90-degrees and the Toyota’s vast rear seat legroom and cavernous luggage space. Over to you.

  • What seven seat SUV should I buy?

    There’s not much between them, but the Honda is regarded as being a little better than the Nissan overall. It’s well-equipped, good value, and practical. Another to consider is the Mazda CX-5.

Honda CR-V 2021 Accessories

The accessories range for the CR-V is pretty decent - you can go beyond the usual stuff like floor mats and bonnet protectors, and even get stuff like roof racks, roof rails, storage luggage pods, side steps and body protection (bonnet protector and headlight protectors). There are weather shields, and different wheels available, too.

Honda CR-V 2021 Interior

The interior of the Honda CR-V is one of its biggest selling points - but you don't buy this SUV for its style, you buy it for its pragmatism.

There are both five and seven seat models available, and both make very good use of the space on offer. The rear doors open almost 90 degrees to allow really easy second and third-row access, and the openings for all the doors - including the tailgate at the boot - are big, allowing for easy loading in and out.

Shame the 7.0-inch media screen is falling well behind in terms of size, but at least all models have smartphone mirroring tech now.

Honda CR-V 2021 Speed

There is no 0-100km/h claimed time for any version of the Honda CR-V. It's no performance SUV, so don't expect to be blisteringly quick from the traffic lights. But the turbo 1.5-litre is certainly the pick of the two engines if you value a bit of poke.
