    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V

    Gen 5: 2017-2021 (UK 2018-2022) CR-V
    I am looking SUVs and really impressed with the 2018 CR-V. It checks basically every box and Honda has a good reputation. I have had Toyota's so this is a big change if I go this way. One thing I found when I test drove the CR-V EX is that the seat length seems really short. Meaning the part you...
