2012 Honda CR-V: Few Faults
May 7, 2013
Sometimes, a vehicle is so good that you struggle to find faults with it. The 2012 Honda CR-V falls into that category.
I'll admit there are times I wish its little four-cylinder engine had more power, especially at higher speeds, like when you're trying to pass a line of cars on a two-lane road. But then it wouldn't get such respectable fuel mileage.
And sure, the rear-end styling is a bit odd. At least in my opinion.
But beyond those quibbles, there's little to complain about with what Honda's done here. Comfy front seats, a pleasant ride quality, intuitive throttle delivery, easy-folding one-pull (from the cargo area) double-action rear seats, cubbies galore, quality materials and tons of room.
Yep, the 2012 Honda CR-V is one of the good ones.
