Most Comfortable spacious relaxing vehicle to drive.

Probably the best vehicle I've ever owned. Previously had Civic with same engine. I needed a higher vehicle with easier access in/out. After Civic and its great engine I was sold on a Honda. It has not disappointed.
I've only owned it about 3 months and its great for economy considering its weight/build and its obviously not as aerodynamic as a car. Plus the gears are obviously a different ratio too compared to a cars gearbox.
Its really spacious inside and very comfortable with many accessories as standard. Great vehicle for long journeys. Your seating position is higher up so vision is brilliant. All round vision is good and its got reversing camera and front/rear sensors. It really doesn't feel big when you drive it.
Honda have got their Crv absolutely spot on in my opinion.
If there was to be one complaint the gear change can feel quite notchy.
Its not as slick as my Civic but after driving an old Toyota Hilux 4wd years ago the gear change seems very similar so I would link the notchy gear change to something similar to a 4wd gearbox. Even though I'm fully aware the Crv is not a permanent 4wd.
Overall absolutely great vehicle.
I would recommend this to everyone.
