Edmunds' Expert Review

It may not be substantially larger or more powerful, but the 2007 Honda CR-V is the most refined and practical small SUV Honda has ever built. If you're shopping in this class, it should be high on your list.

vehicle overview

Although the all-new, third-generation 2007 Honda CR-V is likely to appeal to buyers of all ages and both genders, Honda's target audience for its redesigned small SUV is women in their early 30s with a child under two. And when you drive the new CR-V, it's obvious the company had this audience in mind from the very beginning. The size of the previous-generation CR-V, for instance, was a major selling point for owners (60 percent of whom are women), so the new one hasn't grown any larger. It shares a platform with the latest Civic, yet has a shorter wheelbase than even the coupe. From nose to tail, it's 3 inches longer than a Ford Escape and 3 inches shorter than a Toyota RAV4.

With the dimensions set, company designers focused on making the Honda CR-V more practical for the owner with a toddler in one arm and groceries in the other. Accordingly, the previous model's side-hinged rear gate and exterior-mounted spare tire were dumped in favor of a lightweight overhead liftgate and an under-floor spare. A foldable, removable shelf (available on EX and EX-L models) was fitted to the 35.7-cubic-foot cargo bay to allow two-tier loading. Additionally, the rear doors open a full 90 degrees and have numerous detents within their opening range to keep them from swinging back while you're bent over buckling in an infant. Unlike last year, all three rear seating positions have the LATCH setup for car seats, and once you're on the road, a front-seat sunglasses holder with a built-in conversation mirror takes the neck-twisting out of being an attentive parent.

But it's not all baby-specific upgrades. The interior design, for example, is sharper and less utilitarian than before and materials are higher in quality. Additionally, there's a standard input jack for MP3 players, and for the first time, you can get a navigation system. With the nav installed, you also get gadgets like a PC card reader and a rear backup camera. On the road, it's obvious Honda paid more attention to handling dynamics than in years past, as the third-gen CR-V feels stable and confident around corners and has excellent steering feel.

The one thing you might not like about this new Honda is its lack of a V6, something that compact foes like the Escape and RAV4 happen to offer. The CR-V still has a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder as its sole power plant, although horsepower nudges up 10 from last year to 166. Paired with a five-speed automatic transmission, the 2.4-liter provides adequate acceleration in most situations, but you'll probably wish for more torque during passing maneuvers on highway grades.

For buyers who don't need the quickest small SUV out there, though, the 2007 Honda CR-V is an excellent choice in the under-$30,000 price bracket. It's smooth and stable on the road, intelligently designed on the inside, and more refined than just about any competitor you can name.

trim levels & features

A compact four-door SUV, the 2007 Honda CR-V is offered in LX, EX and EX-L trim levels. The CR-V LX starts you out with 17-inch steel wheels, really nice cloth upholstery, air-conditioning, a four-speaker CD stereo with an auxiliary input jack, full power accessories and a folding center tray. Moving up to the EX provides alloy wheels, body-color exterior trim, a moonroof, an upgraded six-speaker stereo with an in-dash CD changer, an outside temperature gauge and a rear cargo shelf. If you opt for the EX-L model, you get all these goodies, plus heated outside mirrors, leather upholstery, heated front seats, XM Satellite Radio and a fixed center console in lieu of the folding tray.

The CR-V EX-L alone is eligible for a DVD-based navigation system package that also includes a backup camera, an upgraded stereo amplifier, a rear subwoofer and a PC card reader. Unfortunately, the CD changer moves from the dash to the center console on nav-equipped CR-Vs, and the magazine-style cartridge is flimsy. To offset this annoyance, Honda provides an additional single-CD player behind the nav screen.

performance & mpg

All CR-Vs are powered by a 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine rated for 166 hp at 5800 rpm and 161 pound-feet of torque at 4200 rpm. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard, and all trims are available with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. On all-wheel-drive models, power goes primarily to the front wheels and is rerouted to the rear when slippage occurs. Fuel economy is above average; front-drive CR-Vs earn a 23 mpg city/30 mpg highway rating, while AWD models rate 22/28. An AWD CR-V takes 9.8 seconds to hit 60 mph.

safety

All major safety features are standard on the 2007 Honda CR-V, including antilock disc brakes, stability control, brake assist, a tire-pressure monitor, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. A backup camera is available only on EX-L models equipped with the navigation system, but Honda dealers can sell you parking sensors for lower-line models.

driving

Driving around the city is pleasant enough in the 2007 Honda CR-V, but aggressive merging and passing maneuvers tap out the engine's torque reserves. The automatic transmission shifts crisply, but doesn't offer a manual mode. Ride quality is composed and comfortable, and the cabin is insulated from the road noise that plagued previous-generation CR-Vs. Driven around corners, the CR-V exhibits excellent balance for a small SUV, and the steering is well-weighted and communicative. Brake pedal action is smooth and consistent, but stopping distances are only average for the compact SUV class.

interior

Perhaps the best attribute of the new CR-V is its attractive yet practical cabin design. Honda's designers sweated every detail in here; not only are the controls and instrumentation ergonomically correct, but there are numerous parent-friendly conveniences as well. For starters, the wide-opening rear doors and lightweight rear liftgate make it simple to load infants and their strollers. We especially like the multiple detents on the rear doors, which keep them from swinging in tight parking spaces. As in the past, the 60/40-split rear seat adjusts fore and aft, and now you can install a LATCH-capable car seat in any of the three positions. From the front seat, you can monitor toddlers via the conversation mirror built into the sunglasses holder, while the folding center tray in LX and EX models allows for hasty dashes to the backseat.

Cargo capacity measures 35.7 cubic feet, and the cargo shelf in EX and EX-L models allows for two-tier loading. The rear seats can fold and flip into an upright position, opening up 73 cubic feet of cargo capacity.

Pre-certifired means nothing
Mary Bailey, 7/20/2015
I have a Honda 2007 CRV LX 4WD. It is my third one to own. I have always bought brand new until the 2007. It was pre-certified, and I thought that meant something. Although it was going 4 years old and had a scratch on the hood, it only had 35,000 miles on it, and Hondas are supposed to do 300K, right? The certified meant it had nothing wrong with it, etc At 86000 miles and 3 years later, the air conditioner has stopped working. I got online to see that the 2002 - 2007 Honda CRV has a design defect that guarantees the AC will fail. A class action law suit resulted in Honda agreeing to do a 8 year/100,000 mile recall. I took it to my local Honda to be told there was no recall on my vin# and two day later, the air went to blowing only hoth wit the heat index at 110 degrees! The condenser broke and the whole system has to be replaced. I called the dealership I bought the certified Honda from to be told that although it was 2015 and it might sound like Honda would cover it until 2015 ended (the 8th year); my particular Honda came off of the line 1/29/07. The eight years are up as up 1/28/15. I was 13 weeks too late. What troubles me is that the dealer knew the Honda had this problem and that it was not a case of if it would break but when. It is a design defect! I am stuck. How could they certify a vehicle with a design defect that guaranteed the AC would go bad somewhere around 85,000 miles? Trading it in will give me low value and keeping it with no AC in the South could be a health hazard. I consider what Honda did to be unethical. Their certified still carries a "buyer beware." It is a way to dump defective vehicles.
I LOVE this SUV!!!
CR-V Lover!, 1/2/2007
I was turned off by the size at first, but as soon as I test drove my mind completely changed. There's plenty of leg and head room. The inside has tons of features, too! More power for gaining speed on the freeway would be nice, but that would probably mess with the awesome gas mileage.
Rear Differential
Rear Differential, 11/11/2010
I have enjoyed my CR-V with two exceptions. First the original equipment tires failed after 30K and the rear differential has required "regular service" (at $100.00/per) four times in almost 60K miles, which are mostly highway miles. Honda "Engineers" are supposedly investigating the problem but it still will not help those of us who will drive the vehicle past the 60K mile warranty period. We will look elsewhere next year when we expect to replace this vehicle. The manual and my dealer recommends service every 30K miles, which in my estimation is a outright lie.
Excellent quality ride and price.
Big Pun, 12/29/2006
My first Honda and it's a fantastic compact SUV. I was trying to decide between the CRV and the RAV4, but went with the CRV. The RAV4 was louder even with the V6 and I didn't like the spare tire sticking out the back. The CRV handled great, is reliable, has good resale and includes a lot of standard equipment. Would buy it again.

More about the 2007 Honda CR-V
More About This Model

Honda didn't try to make the 2007 Honda CR-V look more masculine. Nor did the company try to squeeze a V6 under the hood. Look inside and there are still just two rows of seating, which isn't surprising when you realize this SUV is 3 inches shorter than last year's CR-V.

This isn't how redesigns in the small-SUV class are usually done. You're supposed to make your cute-ute bigger, more powerful and more aggressive in order to get more young, active male butts in the driver seat.

But that isn't who Honda's after.

"The CR-V is for women in their early 30s who either have a child under 2 or are about to have their first child," Christina Ra, a Honda product planner, told us.

So it's settled. This sport-ute's for girls. It's also better-dressed, better-equipped and better-handling than any previous Honda CR-V, which means you might like it even if you don't own a pair of wedges.

Didn't need to grow
It's one thing to market your compact SUV to a specific audience. It's quite another to have that audience in mind from the moment you begin roughing out the design. The size of the second-generation CR-V was a major selling point for current owners, 60 percent of whom are women, so the '07 CR-V still shares a platform with the Civic, yet now has a shorter wheelbase than even the coupe. From nose to tail, it's 3 inches longer than a Ford Escape and 3 inches shorter than a Toyota RAV4.

Honda widened its compact sport-ute's track an inch to improve handling and open up more shoulder room, but lowered its stance: This CR-V sits just 7.3 inches off the ground. In the process, the company carved out an additional cubic foot of cargo space. With 73 cubes of max capacity, the Honda equals the Toyota and surpasses the Ford.

Built-in convenience
Next, Honda set about making its small SUV more practical for the owner with a toddler in one arm and groceries in the other. The side-hinged rear gate and exterior-mounted spare tire were dumped in favor of a lighter, overhead liftgate and an under-floor spare. A foldable, removable shelf, as seen in Chevrolet's Equinox, was fitted to the 35.7-cubic-foot cargo bay to allow two-tier loading.

Honda also designed rear doors that open a full 90 degrees. Better yet, the doors have numerous detents within their opening range, so you never have to worry about them swinging back while you're bent over buckling in the apple of your eye. The 60/40-split rear bench offers a wide range of fore/aft adjustment and, unlike last year, all three seating positions have the LATCH setup for car seats.

Up front, there's a sunglasses holder with a built-in conversation mirror to take the neck-twisting out of being an attentive parent. When you do need to dash to the back, the folding center tray in cloth-upholstered CR-Vs provides walk-through access. (Leather-lined CR-Vs get a fixed console.)

It's not all baby-specific upgrades, though: Honda knows its customers have iPods, so every 2007 CR-V comes with an auxiliary input jack. Plus, interior materials are higher in quality compared to the '06 model, and the unsightly dash and column-type shifter have been replaced by a sleek, ergonomic design that puts both the gear selector and the stereo controls at hand level. It's also easier to find a comfortable driving position with this year's standard tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.

Stands pat
With all the V6s popping up in the small SUV segment, we expected Honda to take radical action under the hood. Instead, last year's 2.4-liter inline four-cylinder engine returns with a slightly higher compression ratio, higher-flow intake and exhaust systems, and revised variable valve timing. The result is 10 extra horsepower and 1 more pound-foot of torque for totals of 166 and 161, respectively. These numbers are on par with the four-cylinder RAV4 (166 hp, 165 lb-ft) and Jeep Compass (172 hp, 165 lb-ft).

With only 5 percent of second-gen CR-V customers opting for a manual gearbox, Honda decided not to bother this time, leaving the five-speed automatic as the sole transmission choice. The five-speed's gearing has been tweaked, with a shorter 1st gear and final drive ratio.

Buyers can go with front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. Equipped with 4WD, the CR-V functions as a front-driver until the Real Time 4WD system detects wheel slippage and redirects power (20 percent more than last year) to the rear.

We sampled only the 4WD CR-V and found its acceleration adequate. Driving around the city is pleasant enough, but merging and passing maneuvers tap out the engine's torque reserves. The automatic shifts crisply, but has no manual mode.

Having gained only 70 pounds, the 2007 CR-V feels about as fast as the '06 model. It also feels a little quicker than the Compass, which takes 10 seconds to hit 60 mph.

Of course, it feels slower than the V6-powered RAV4, which gets to 60 in 7 seconds. The carmaker says CR-V buyers are more concerned about fuel economy than speed. Probably true, but with a 21 mpg city/28 mpg highway rating for the V6 4WD RAV4 versus Honda's 22/28 estimate for the 4WD CR-V, that trade-off hardly seems necessary.

Trades power for agility
As consolation, the 2007 Honda CR-V offers handling that borders on athletic. Greater use of high-strength steel provides a more structurally rigid body, and engineers made numerous changes to the fully independent front strut/rear multilink suspension. In front, they added caster, adjusted the angle of the struts and lowered the steering box to improve straight-line stability and steering response, while increasing suspension travel to allow for greater tuning precision. In back, they fiddled with the geometry to keep the CR-V level during acceleration and braking, and fitted a larger antiroll bar. The rack-and-pinion steering system continues to use hydraulic assist, but has a quicker ratio.

On British Columbia's Sea-to-Sky Highway, the CR-V felt balanced and refined, with progressive body roll and excellent steering feel. Ride quality is smooth and comfortable, and the cabin is insulated from the road noise that plagued '06 CR-Vs.

During our travels, though, we noticed the turning radius is a bit large. Honda's specs have it at 37.8 feet — 4 feet wider than last year. Must be the larger 17-inch wheels and 225/65R17 tires fitted to all '07 CR-Vs.

Brake size hasn't changed, but the front discs are a few millimeters thicker, and the antilock brake system now has four-channel capability, instead of three, to allow for individualized braking of the rear wheels. The standard stability control system is fully integrated with the ABS and includes a new brake-assist feature.

Starts in the low $20Ks
Familiar LX and EX trim levels return for 2007, while the EX-L (EX with leather upholstery) replaces the old SE. Priced in the low $20Ks, the LX comes with front seat-mounted side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, air-conditioning, a CD stereo (albeit with a small "single-DIN" head unit), full power accessories and really nice cloth upholstery. The volume-selling EX has alloy wheels, body-color exterior trim, a moonroof, an upgraded stereo with a normal-size head unit and an in-dash CD changer, and the aforementioned cargo shelf.

EX-L models start around $26,000; and for $2,000 additional, you can get a navigation system package that also includes a rearview camera, a PC card reader, XM Satellite Radio and a subwoofer. Unfortunately, the CD changer moves from the dash to the console box on EX-L Navi models, and the magazine-style cartridge is flimsy. To offset this annoyance, Honda installed a single CD player behind the nav screen.

Is this what women want?
Unlike its predecessors, the 2007 Honda CR-V doesn't feel much like a budget SUV. It's smooth and stable, attractively furnished and equipped with virtually every convenience a young mom (or dad) could want.

That is, unless she's hungry for power. But Honda is betting that 160,000 buyers a year will be willing to make that compromise. Sales start September 28.
