Honda CRV -facelift with 1.5 turbo

Recommended Posts

1st Gear (edited)

I have been following the reviews of CRV on YouTube. Taiwan, China, Aussie, western reviews and even Malaysia reviews. I like it. I also like the interior and the matt wooden trim. Most reviews have been positive because of all the active safety system available to Honda Sensing. So far I only see Aussie having the 7 seater model and now Singapore. I would really consider the 5 seater if it is priced at the right level plus Honda sensing.

Not the full Honda Sensing is in S'pore.

 

For the 7-seaters, there's one interesting feature, Honda Lane Watch. When driver signals left, the camera on the passenger-side mirror will turn on and display live video on the touch-screen.

Good for you. Not everybody thirst for the badge. When I was in the US, I bought a top of the range Honda SUV which costs the same as GLC300.

What so special about a honda badge?

Almost cant't find one on Germany road.

I am seeing more Kia there

 

It's because Honda isn't popular in Europe, they are struggling there.

This is already a feature in current honda accord and oddessy. Not part of the honda sensing in my humble view. Honda sensing is explain in greater detail here https://automobiles.honda.com/sensing

 

Such as lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control , cross traffic monitoring and more..

Adaptive cruise control is not uncommon in other brands.

Went to see the CR-V with a friend. The features of the 5 seater is a joke. It still need a car key to insert into the ignition and start the engine...wah lau.

 

Paying $150K for such low spec car.

 

If die die must get the CR-V, paying extra $10K for the 7 seater is definitely worth it.

Yes, just never learn from the Vezel/HR-V case.

Hahaha, got rear aircon too. Behind got 2 USB ports somemore.

 

But have to say it's really spacious inside, slightly better than the Harrier Turbo and much much better than the CX-5.

 

We checked out all 3.

Crv is cavernous. Probably the leader among all Jap and European equivalent suv

Lane watch is useful mostly on the express ways. Is it in odyssey? They used to only have the blind spot monitor indicators on both wing mirrors.

Yes, if one die die must get a CR-V then must go for the 7 seater. The $10K extra is worth paying for.

 

Made in Thailand though. Even the Civic as well (now then I know).

Honestly it's a hard sell.

For less money you can get a Harrier, and if one needs 7 seats, you can even score the 216GT for less $$... the competition is severe at it's current price.
