2009 Car of the Week

Motor Mouth’s Car of the week: Honda CR-V

It’s adorned with a Honda badge so you can be sure it’s going to be good and the fact that it’s being made in Swindon by British workers and exported all around the world comes as an excellent bonus.

The SUV as a category may be starting to lose a little of its shine but Honda’s CR-V continues to top the sales tables and the new, upgraded version, on sale here in January, is another surefire winner.

A new, more powerful 2.2-litre diesel engine is being added to the range, as is an auto gearbox for diesel models. It gets a few styling tweaks to keep it fresh, and the manual will do 118mph and return 34mpg; both figures drop a bit for the auto. Prices go from a little over £20k to a bit over £30k depending on spec.

MM verdict: unexciting but sensible and classy.
