Ride & Handling

Again I find myself praising the CR-V, this time for the absolute quiet the cabin provides, totally blocking out road and wind noise. The funky exterior must be aerodynamic as well.

The CR-V shines in handling. Steering was sprung tight on the four-wheel-drive EX-L I tested. It felt like a super-size rubber band was snapping the wheel back in my hands. Move the steering wheel slightly and the CR-V reacts with an intuitive feel that's rare in non-luxury cars.
