Is the driving height of a used Honda CR-V similar to a Volkswagen Touran?

Our three year lease on our Volkswagen Touran is up and due to go back very shortly. My wife likes the driving height of the Touran and wants a similar height in the new car. We like the Honda CR-V and our budget is around £5000. What do you think?

The 2007 Honda CR-V 2.2 i-CTDi was okay. Very comfortable, and doesn't have a DPF to worry about, but could get hit by increasing restrictions on diesel cars. See: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/honda/honda-cr-v-2.../ And: www.honestjohn.co.uk/road-tests/honda/honda-cr-v-2.../
