Unsurprising and relaxed could describe the CR-V overall. It’s neither flashy nor exciting but it is well executed. Combine that with Honda’s enviable reputation for reliability, and you’ve likely got what it takes to make this CR-V as ubiquitous as the last one.

Some of its competitors lean on styling and upmarket features to appeal to customers, but Honda is relying on the core strengths of its product. As a package, the CR-V remains pretty unbeatable.

The fact that Honda (mostly) hit a home run on interior comfort, trim, packaging and styling helps, but it’s the way this Honda drives that’s going to keep the CR-V a leader in the entry crossover slot.
