I passed a first-gen Honda CR-V on the road this morning, and thought it looked much smaller than I remembered.

So I did what I always tell my kid to do. I looked it up:

2012 Honda CR-V AWD

Height:65.1 in

Length: 178.3 in

Wheelbase: 103.1 in

Ground clearance: 6.7 in

Curb weight: 3,426 lbs

1997 Honda CR-V AWD

Height:65.9 in

Length: 177.6 in

Wheelbase: 103.2 in

Ground clearance: 8.1 in

Curb weight: 3,164 lbs

Current model is a little shorter in height, little longer in length, and quite a bit heavier.
