2019 Honda CR-V FULL REVIEW - Autogefühl
The Honda CRV is, the world's most sold, SUV, why, is that the, case here. Also in the new generation, that is now available everywhere. Yeah, Nautica fuel your number one resource for in that car use and the number one community to discuss cars we're. Going to examine exterior. Interior and. The, driving experience in, full, HD full, screen and full. Acts let's. Go. The, new font here has been updated. So it's Robin evolution, a completely. Different but it looks a little bit sportier, however Hana is not in the game for the sport, is designed, whatsoever. With their SUVs they rather still make those friendly. Faces and also, with a lot of round. Shapes, they also have some comp, style details, right there in the front grille and, as. A contrast, this gray front, bumper, also fits the color very well and. You can see the daytime. Running light and LED right here but also the main, headlamp, unit is standard. Equipment, with LED, others. Make it optional they, put directly in like that the lengths of 4 meters 58, 15. Foot or 180. Inches, brings. Us to the side profile, of this vehicle where this interesting. Metallic color shines once, again the rims by the way start with 17-inch, those ones here 18, inch option. There's also 19, available, however I think 18 inch is a good choice they also look. Visually, attractive already, in that size but, still the. Riding comfort is quite. Good more. To that when, we drive the car and I. Would, really not go for the 19-inch rims I'll, tell you in the driving part why. Then. The. Mirror caps are also here in the vehicle, color chrome, frames, that also makes it elegant and, you can see here this rear end part, this has a copy. Like. Frame. So. Overall a little bit more elegant than the predecessor, generation. And has. Also become just. A little, bit longer, than before we, will see how that one plays out then for the interior, so. It's 6, centimeters, longer, than the predecessor, in length but. Also gained 4 centimeters, in ground, clearance, it's, pretty seldom, that the V could increase, their offer capabilities.
Over The generations now. At 20, centimeters ground. Clearance, in. The rear you can see that those tail abs are quite sculptural. So they're 3d, alike they, really. Stand, out even from the side profile, already and this, form, here what. Have we seen that - yeah at Volvo, with. The SUVs but we can surely argue, who came first year and, real. Exhaust, pipes in the lower, part, again. With, a great, contrast. Right here I think that really works, very well especially, with, that color again, also, the rear especially. This one year more, modern than the previous, generation, I think overall, it's. You. Know a very. Good design, step forward, what, do you think. So. The main engine for the Honda CRV in, this new generation is a 1.5. Liter turbo, petrol, with. 170. Horsepower in the manual. Hand drive version with. Front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive or. When a 90, horsepower as, we see it here with all-wheel. Drive and CVT, automatic combination. So it's a front wheel drive platform and, then plus, we, will drive on demand that's how they all will drive here works and they. Had some engine problems here. With oil. Mixing. With the petrol. Especially. For the 217. 218 models. In US, and China predominantly. They, say, Europe. Would not be affected, and also newer models would not be affected and they are also promised, to repair, to, upgrade all of the existing engines, you shouldn't contact your Honda dealer for, that if you have already, one, of those, and. Then. There is, also the 2-liter hybrid. Looking forward to drive that and there's also a 2.4. Liter naturally aspirated, engine, with, 190, horsepower or, supposed, before US and Russia but. I haven't seen it on the US configurator. Not. Exactly, sure if they want to concentrate on the 1.5, there too. Let's, take a look at the interior together this, boot style inserts, here I really like them and they're good contrast, with this. Bright. Style, to, the rest of the dark styles, so I think, there's a good job in. Doing. It not so, expensive, but already, creating, a nice look, and feel then. Those. Fabrics. See it's here they are the base seats and I mean. Really marvelous, Bay seats look, at the support, also at the sides and the. Wide seating. Areas the, fabric, is not too sticky it's the right mixture. The half-day. It. Keeps cool and summer and, also warm in winter and also, an interesting detail look, at how, the fabric, goes. All the way in the round style in the front all the way to the lowest. Part and that's really, cozy, also when getting in and out and also while driving so I think they've done a great job here. In. The steering wheel also, been updated and you might think hey wait a minute it looks a little bit like the Honda Civic and indeed, those. Cars here the Civic and the CRV, they, share the same platform, the, door closing, sound is actually quite decent. The. Last part but what they don't manage is here. When you pull the handle and it. Snatches back that. Really sounds like everything. You know it's just a hole on the inside and. Now it's maybe nitpicking, but, that's. Where, they could also deliver you a more premium, experience if they like. To develop such a part interesting. Also how the door, sill, and, the lower part is really you. Know drawn all the way to the lower part then there's a rubber, lip to. Prevent something. From coming, from the outside to, the inside then. Hopefully. Also in the car wash the, inside, of the. Chassis here was the key. Let's get inside this, is a maximum from door opens but it's the easy entry, you, have somewhat, not the highest SUV, seating, position, in here somewhat, cross over alike. But, it's not bad at all you sit still quite, upright, on the seat and the, comfort, is really, superb, not, only due to this good, fabric surface but also the seat form itself so I think they have done a great job in, there also, completely redesigned the seats and they, put the manual seats here for, you, know that I can do the palm it up y'all and. Kudos. To Honda by the way you. Just finish. This one up this is here the lever. Then to change, the angle of the back part. Kudos. To Honda because they put us here a middle, trim vehicle and most. Of the other manufacturers, they always, present top high trim, spec, test vehicles, for the journalists, Honda. Also dares to go for the mid trim spec and I think it's a good choice first, of all not.
Everyone Would spend, so much money this. Is a very realistic car people would buy that way and I can, also tell you already right now I would recommend, you to buy this weaker exactly, the way it is here right now to. Get a very good price performance steel and well, one thing they will be I would still pick as an optional soon tell you what it is but. Other than that I would go for that in that way it's not the cheapest one but it's also not the most expensive one and I. Think that's also very important. That you get the best price performance ratio, therefore. Here another cool we always tell, you what, is standard for. This option it might the right of course always from market to market but, we also try to cover that as good as possible my. Height is 1 meters 86 or 6 foot one that. Leaves still a lot of headroom I even have to see a little bit up so I mean oh the pelvis is a little bit more upright but, still plenty, of headroom available. This one here without the primary premiere OPEC without the panoramic, roof even. Leaves more Headroom so, that's really, good then, the steering wheel can be controlled, in height and also in reach smooth. Function, so. Overall really, satisfied, with the seating, position and the setup they have here and it doesn't always have to be the electric seats well, this just good when you have those memory functions when you're using it with a couple of drivers other than that the menu will also do just fine, interesting, detail by the way here with that middle console. See they have a soft pet here to protect your knees that's, a great idea however, it only works with let's. Say not. That taut long or tall legs because. Then when, your legs are taller it will just hit the edge there and not the soft pad so very. Well thought, out and works. For smaller. Drivers. But. Not the best for tall drivers but I would like to see some more ideas. Like that soon because that's extra, the part you, hurt your knees most, when, driving, well. Especially on the racetrack but. That won't happen here I guess instead, of the door here soft, touch on the top part it's a leather red basically. So also, well done here, we go with the interior. Overview. You. Can still have this mute, button right here this. Is the only real, button on the screen left, this. Optional. Set up top. Set up here for the infotainment, but probably. Most will go for that and then they have 2 7, inch screens left side for the digital instruments rather, than for. This infotainment, system, sumadi. Is to both screens the. Top part here by the way it's little, soft touch you, can see the whole interior comes a little bit towards, yo. You. Know that is, reducing. The space a little bit but to, the sides you have really abundance, of space you can with this nice wood start in that and then, some leather red style, for, the rest of the dashboard the. Automatic, shifting Eva can be accessed quite easily, this. One here is CVT automatic transmission. I'll tell you more about when we drive the vehicle and you still have physical, temperature. Knobs I really like that that's makes it so easy to control while. Driving for. Example, left side coolant, temperature right side fuel meter and the middle. Part is the digital. Instruments. We. Can see the RPMs of it also digital speed it's kept quite simple, but I think it's, also good you have a good overview now, to the main infotainment, screen, that. GPS, could, be a little bit more responsive. See, it's not reacting, too, fast but you can zoom in and out like, on a smart phone that, comes handy, and, you, can connect the firmware Reuters but also with end of it out or apple, carplay and then you have it here right here, it's. By the way also good for the voice activation, if you use that and hold, the voice button at the steering wheel it activates, Siri, the, normal, voice, activation, from, the car is not really that helpful because doesn't have a free structure, for free speech you have to then use this, once a climate control then you get to the next menu and just forget, it hold.
The Button and use it for zero or um just use normal commands, but since you can control, this car very easily in the other ways it. Makes, more sense and for, this play here you can easily access the brightness, by the way so, when it's too bright maybe at night or so it's also an easy way to change, that quite quickly and that's the rear view camera, it, has actually, now a little, bit better resolution, so, that's quite ok it's not the most fancy one but. It surely does the job and by, the way you can see here the. Lines also, just a little bit when you turn. The C memory so you know where. You, actually, going, to well, they are the masses of space but the, door pockets are quite, slim, I have to say there's, a lot of room the middle lower, console, to offer power supply then. Adaptive, cupholders. Then a lot. Of space here under the armrest, you can move it up and, it's. Right. Required, well attached could be little, bit more fixed, but I think, it's still ok and, then this middle, part there you, can either move, it, like. This forward, or backward or completely, remove it at all that's also, possible then even. More space be below, that and. Then there are use be supplies, one, to connect, the smartphone for the mirroring and one just to recharge, the phone let's, get to the rear bench which is so important, for this vehicle and. What. Look. At that. 90-degree. Opening, we hardly, see that with any other vehicle, that's. Awesome, really. Cool. And by the way the instead of the door here this is hard pack material, whereas, in the front there soft pack material, I think, we can live with that here but. Then of course the rest here is inside, soft fabric so that's also cool. That's. What the vehicle is for five, centimeter, increase, in LAC room in this new generation if you compare it to the predecessor, and overall. This is really awesome, I, will. Soon show of the trunk this. Strategy, of this vehicle is to offer the maximum. Of lakh room available, not. The maximum of trunk length, you. Can flip the seats and I will soon show you that but we can clearly see the emphasis is here on the maximum, amount of legroom that, you can easily go, with 4 even, 5 adults. That's. Really awesome. And of course the kids always have a lot of space and and it's, so great for everyone with children, to get in here, install the child seats on the ISOFIX on the out of the seeds each and then, you can have this wide opening, of the rear door can easily, you know access. The child seat he, have a lot of room, still left and then, still someone can sit in the front that's totally easy so that's. Again the reason why so many people's, children go for the CRV. Then. In the middle part here got. Some cup, holders and, you. Can also flip. The seats from here and then you can see that.
The Rear bench here good moves down a little bit alongside, with that and, that will play a role of, getting. It full of fat from the trunk and, you. Can also adjust the angle a little bit at the moment it's put all the way back, like. This and even more sleeping. Position but. You can also make it a little bit more upright then, you could sit more in a now more, be more present sit more upright I think that's also good to have this flexibility, for sure and the, Headroom is also, you know is there, an abundance. Even, in the rear. And, two more USB supplies, that, you can also charge your smart phones here and last. But not least there's, hardly any middle tunnel so. This. Is primarily, a fun with our routing system but even if you have it here in the overdrive, version you, can still sit. Here if you feet are not too long but, there's no big middle tunnel that's good of course the middle seat is little bit stiffer but you can still steer for as an adult for no, shorter, trips or something we. Have the manual hatch, here today. However. There's also an electric one available and then you can also get. This foot kick opening, mechanism if, you like I sometimes. Even, prefer the manual I just well if you like carrying, a lot of stuff and you, have some mechanisms, to open it that's of course handy but I think if you stuff, some, things. In here or if you stuff stuff or, maybe you, know I've transport, my mountain bike in here and then I gently want, to close, it again. You, know see Oh does it really fit and I don't want to damage anything then. The manual, one can. Be better over, to you think and, if we then look inside Wow. First of all a very low, loading sill so. Easy to put stuff in and out and it's even then, a full, replacement tire, underneath. They. Have used this room so, well look, at how wide it is here, Wow, this cover here by the way it can be stuffed. Like this that if up right then it's let's. A little bit stick here and wobbly. Here doesn't have raids on the side, like. This or. Just let it hang down it's. Also possible or, folded. Up like this, well. Then. Let's, take some measurements with. Professor, Thomas. Here. It's. A little bit less, than 1 meters in length so, the triangle length is not the biggest strength, yet. Then. Here this is about 1 meters in width and if, you you, know. Go. In front of those we arches, that's. Then over, 1 meters 20 in width. Very interesting, and what's, even cooler you, can flip the seats from here with those. Very, political. Handles. Like. This and well, it would also be possible from, the side from the, you, know from them. Via. Seats but you, can see and they, really, come down all the way and I don't have to go here you know I could push this one flat and this. One goes really, very, very flat the whole area unfortunately we cannot, hold, the, co-driver. See it all the way down but, already here. We. Now get you know this. Is about 180. 118. Meters and, if, I put it up the. Armrest. Then of course we get even more. Than two meters in length and, look. At that that's, also one of the main reasons, my neighbor has this vehicle, he has two kids. Welcome. To Thomas is driving lounge with the Honda CRV. In this, current generation now. Run. In the 1.5, liter turbo. Engine. 190. Horsepower and, the. CVT automatic transmission. For. A short trip mid. Speed and motorway then we also have some city driving and. Then we'll be more, motorway, and some countryside, so all conditions. You might face well. Except. For off-road but. I said earlier even this one here got a little bit better in the offered situations, due to increased, ground clearance. So. The sound insulation, was. Something. Where. Honda wasn't best, at. And. It's. Not the best now I think, it's little bit better than before but. You feel it it's not super, Sayan T I'm driving, just, about one on kilometres or 60 miles an hour and. It's, somewhat ok but, it's not that I would say it's. Super. Silent in here, the, first driving, characteristic, you feel, or experience, is. The. Thing that I mentioned in the interior, part, that. The whole. Console. The cockpit area here, really.
Comes Far. Towards. You. That's. In contrast to the, otherwise. Very open, spacious feeling, you have here and, also influences, your driving to, the. Overview is superb, so, a great. View through, the Narrows. Balls, to the rear I can see so much and in times where a lot, of cars are designed in a way that you cannot look from the inside to the outside anymore. This. Is really a refreshing. Experience. When. You can even very. Well see the real window there so you don't have too much block from the b-pillar, so. Great, overview, have you here although, it's not the smallest car, oh it's. Also not the biggest one but. This good overview really, helps, you to, get along with it very well. The. Engine is actually quite, silent, and it's perfect in combination, with, the CVT it tends, to give. You a very, calm feel and, the, CVT also, somehow educates. You to drive, in a calm way because. Those continuously. Variable. Transmissions. They. Are not. Really. That. Sporty, I will, soon show you another acceleration. With that what I mean and. So. We are not really fun when you really hammer the throttle, so. You. Rather keep it a little bit steady and then, they actually quite, smooth, and there, is no real transition. Because. There are no, classic. Gears like with the sequential. Automatic. Gearbox or some things so. Especially. For cruising, and for being, in the city, it's. Actually quite nice to, have that one, and. We talked about the problems. For the two 17, and 218 models, for this engine earlier. Now. Today, year our impressions, were the 290, models but honda has promised, to have, fixed, all the problems that occurred, before, and. It's only quite uncommon, because the honda because as you, know known, as very reliable, so. Everyone. Was quite surprised, when they had the problems here with the new travel engine but, you. Know I really, hope they fixed, it now we'll see on long-term, run, I. Mean. Sound, and performance wise so far it's actually quite good the. Acceleration, figure to 100, kilometers or 62, miles an hour is about 10 seconds, and, also experience that soon again first of all some city traffic here. Suspension. Lies it is, also, rather, soft, and set for a comfortable, ride but, however when I feel those small, bumps, in the road those. Are not even out too well. That's also something which the, Prius, has ahead and. Have. You. Know I, thought. I would have improved that a little, bit, but. That's also something where they're not, that strong in with, the suspension. Setup. As. For the steering. It. Feels very light that. Has. The primary purpose, to make. It easy to pack in and out. It. Doesn't give you the most natural, feeling. But. It doesn't, have as you, know a total, dead zone or something. At. Least something, is happening also in those, minor areas, overall. I think something. You can you, can really live with you. Can also find. Quite cool that we have so. Upright. Structures. Also the insert of the interior, here at the sides that again, accounts, for the spacious, feeling so you overall, get a calm, and. Spacious. Travel, feeling when being in this SUV and again. This proves one of our points that this, is not one of the biggest ones it's not full-size. But. It delivers you a lot of room as we shown you in the interior, part so you don't have to go, all the way big on the exterior and, still.
Can Derive something where. You can maneuver, it through narrower situations, or also inside the city that. Still works. You, don't get the highest SUV. Feeling, in the CRV, however, if you, know some SUVs they. Really have put an emphasis on. Feel. Of a high, SUV. Seating, position, and, some. Rather, go in a crossover, direction. This. Is still has to be for me here but it, doesn't have the highest set, up here so it's, something. You know has. Attached off across over for. Sure. Now, this speed about 70, kilometers by the way it is actually, quite calm, 70. Government is now by the way at one, and a half thousand, rpm, soon. Go to one hunters, or about. Sixty miles again soon, and, then give you the RPM, figure, once. More, you, guys crested that and. I've. Soon I'll talk about the fuel. Consumption, right here. Well, car feels quite cozy, and stable, actually, so. It. Is a really, good, cruiser and especially, because. A, family Cruiser since you can put, so much in this vehicle and. Again. It's so, unpretentious, that, that's what I really like about this, vehicle doesn't. You, know try to be something else what it was it you know what other, way it really isn't and. It's, actually, quite easy and quick to learn so. As for the driving roles you do have this econ, mode. That. One is reducing, a floral input a little bit. Helps. You that the car roll and stuff also with the gear changes, and stuff so. You can see if a little bit more fuel and. On. The other side you have the S mode maybe, harder that goes a year low, up maybe for the acceleration let's go 70, to 100. That, was already it that. Was all almost, yeah almost 110. So. That still was, quite okay and you. Know it wasn't too bad for for, the CVT automatic so we had some older. CVT, automatic switch, really, went like. And. It, was you know quite painful, to hear. But. This one was actually quite okay or what do you think. So. Now. In the S mode again higher. Rpms, Stacy, lower, as, soon as I put in the D mode again the. Car shifting gear up and now, for example we are hit 1 on kilometres, no or 60 months and we. Just right. Below, 2000. Rpm. There, is by the way also the, adaptive cruise control, the. Autonomous. Emergency brake, is, standard. Equipment, the. ACC. It. Always depends, on the countries but there are some countries where at even, certain, equipment you always have to check out the trim level as well. Blindspot, mantra is not, standard, we, also do not have that here on that vehicle here. You. Know with the adaptive cruise control I have said at the moment you, can also change the distance here at the steering wheel to the car in front of you and. So. Far it seems quite. Reliable. To lane, change now here, at higher speed, car. Remains quite stable so. I found, that they I think. They stiffened, up the suspension, even a little, bit in comparison, to the predecessor, it's not less. Comfortable than, the previous system but. Everything it gives you more stability also, at higher, speeds, it is. Somewhat, windy outside today, so. It. Might be a little bit calmer when it's less windy, I. Would. Say the sound insulation is really okay but, not superb, let's take it that way, I'm. Getting off the motorway too so for, you some more. Agile. Riding, that's. Actually quite it, is fun to drive the car still so although, it for, sure doesn't have to spoil your setup it's still so much fun and also, good in comparison since we recently had the Citroen, c5, err cross which was not. Sporty at all but, also very good right. So, you know in the roundabout. Gives. Me actually quite good feeling for the car. Yeah. So this was a little bit more fun to drive than the Citroen. C5 actress for sure. When. You're driving it a little bit faster, you. Feel, that they. Share parts, with the Civic for sure, because.
The The Civic has a compact vehicle. Which is almost. Mid-sized. As for the size then, Civic. Is so. Much fun to drive already, in. Not. Super, sports versions, and that. Could transport, a little, bit of that also here to the new CRV. So. Yes, fun to drive the. CVT is. Surprisingly. Good so. I had some experience where, the CVT was like. Mediocre, but. Really. The engine keeps very silent, due to the turbo, you also don't have to rush it so much into the high rpm, areas, so, you can also keep it that's, a steady, and calm that also helps you again, of. All. I think, you know it's, a good verdict, so um the, driving overall, is good. Again. Special positives, to transmission. And the, engine, you. Still have enough power always and you, can really drive it very calmly as for the engine sound. Installation, could be a little bit better I think and, you. Know when the bumps are in the road so as soon it you, know when the one when the road is clear so, hidden it's just fine but soon, else you have some bumps then. The suspension, does not do the best job so. Those. Things should. Be improved. But. Although I think a very decent ride. For. Lane change again it. Really gives me a good, and controlled, feeling, of the car and. You, know this, somewhat. Crossover, aspect of the vehicle it's not too high of course accounts, maybe for, a little bit more of driving, fun in comparison. To other as we stood still. It's, not a super. Sporty, setup that's, for sure and again. This, is. Not, you. Know it's, not disadvantaged, or something because so. Many SUVs, have been going, in a very very, sporty direction when you ask yourself okay, why do they put it on as Avedon anymore. But. I think they overall. Found. A nice the, setup here as. Well, as. What direction they're, going in there so now some can decide as well where. Can enjoy, some views I love this panoramic. Windscreen. In the front this. Is also a good aspect, for traveling with the family for, example so, then you know even with with. Kids in the back they can still look. Out of the big front, screen for, example and of course also all of those very upright, rear windows, that's. Again pretty helpful. So. That is the last remark if you compare, to the pre Assessor definitely. Feels a little bit more refined especially. Engine wise a little. Bit more relaxed. The car has become a little. Bit better in the sound insulation, and, of. Course, the biggest change is the interior, redesign. Where. It. Also affects the driving feeling that this car feels a little bit more alert right now than. Before, at. The same time as, I said earlier, the. Main characteristic. Is just a. Unpretentious. Vehicle. That is easy to understand, easy to drive and easy. To use nuts I think also one of the. Excelling. Points which makes. It still. What's. Most. Sin against me. Some. I don't know but that's. Actually the case. And. Now to our confusion, for today with the Honda CRV well. As a evolution. On the exterior it's not too different at first sight a little, bit more modern for sure on the, interior, of the upgrade infotainment, system, better, material, quality overall feels, more refined, definitely.
And A, lot, of room. Even, more than before yes it's always a little bit bigger but. Not that it would change the whole vehicle concept, or something and especially, the rear bench is so well. To use an abundance, of luggage. Space - this, is also what makes this car so strong in a set, a couple of times and driving part I think this guy's, unpretentious. What I mean by that well in a way that it, is easy to use it's no. Not, suggesting, Oh super, premium or stuff you just use this car and that's. Also what so many people, appreciate, about this very vehicle, by. The way I also wanted, to talk about the fuel consumption, I want to wait a little bit more to that drove, the week a little bit longer and we, end up with about seven liters on one kilometers that's, about 34. Mpg, for, us or 41, gallons. In the UK and I think that's really, a very decent, figure. For. This petrol engine well. We, hope that the petrol, engine problems. Will not continue, so, far looks good panned for the 290, models in the - 17, - 18 models, are being repaired, on that says. Overall. I think it's a very decent, package, it's not too low in the price looking. At Europe in the u.s. it's actually, more, affordable, that's for sure but, overall I think they still have a great package for this vehicle and I can really understand well this is one, of the most popular. Ones what, do you think.
