Honda's midsize crossover began its fifth generation in two thousand-seventeenth. It gets new engine choices, an exterior redesign and upgraded interior pieces.

The new CR-V feels solid and upscale where the latest one felt a small chintzy inside. It's tough to grumble about the continuously variable transmission in normal operation and the 1.5-liter turbo scoots this tiny utility around with gusto.

We certified a Honda CR-V Touring, the top trim level, which felt upscale with kind wood trim and mostly soft-touch materials throughout the interior. The seats are way comfy -- it seems Acura and Honda are working off Lexus’ playbook there. The CR-V skips the former double-screen infotainment system, which we found challenging to understand, for a single-screen unit with knobs, thank God, for the important functions.

On the road, the newest CR-V doesn’t perceive tinny or chintzy love the elderly one did. Road and wind noise are kept to a minimum. There’s plenty of space in the back row for average-size humans and a excellent quantity of space behind the rear seats, too.
