Honda is quite rightly proud of the fact their CR-V, first launched all the way back in 1995, has gone on to become the world’s best-selling SUV. Back then, the Honda found itself largely in a market of one. Today, SUVs are everywhere, and that means Honda can't afford to rest on its laurels.
The Honda CR-V might not be desperately exciting in the way some of its other efforts are, but it's consistently proven itself as practical, comfortable and efficient family transport. For 2015, Honda has taken the opportunity to tweak the styling, but they've also introduced a new infotainment system, a more powerful 1.6-litre diesel engine, and a nine-speed automatic transmission.
